    Works great

    I bought a 46" Samsung LCD yesterday and today decided it was time to see how my MacBook looked on it. I see a few reviews of people having issues connecting it to Samsung TVs. Not sure if my model just lacks the issues others are having or if they are doing something wrong. The all I had to do to make it work was connect Mini-Disp to VGA adapter, connect VGA cable from that adapter to back of TV, change TV source to "PC", and change the display settings on my MacBook to mirror the display. Looks great to me!

    Works great!

    Just got a Macbook Pro 13" and the adapter works seamlessly with my projector. There were non in the Apple Store by my house and I was told that it didn't exist by a genius there, but I found it online and it works well. :)

    Works but is poorly engineered

    The adapter works, but it adds to the clutter due to apple's putting all the connectors on the left. To make up for the poor placement of the display port, this cable should be at least a foot long to get some of the clutter behind the computer. the display port (usually always connected when on the desktop) is the front most port, getting in the way of the USB ports (which usually get plugged in and out). A 3-6 foot cable would be better to clean the cable mess.

    Outstanding!

    I just bought a new 15" Macbook Pro in July 2009 and I wanted to hook up the monitor from my HP Desktop. After reading all of the reviews on this site I was very skeptical about this product, but I decided to buy it anyway. It worked perfectly. All of the connectors fit snug and flush without effort, and the Macbook Pro detected and turned on the HP monitor in seconds. I didn't have to open system preferences or change any settings. It was truly plug and play.

    works great!

    This adapter works great with my 23 inch acer monitor. Oh and to the person who said it only shows your screen saver, try dragging a window to the right! thats how it works.

    Works Just fine!

    Works perfectly with my VGA monitor and my company's overhead projector. Caution: This is NOT a TV adapter, it is an adapter for a VGA compatible monitor.

    Just works - what else to say?

    Unibody MacBook to old-style 24inch cinema display -- no issues, just plug it in and just start typing.

    It does what it is supposed to do

    Works with my Samsung TV.

    Design is better than old mini-DVI and mini-VGA versions, but I sure would have been happier if I didn't have to buy yet another adapter.

    works with new mac mini

    Okay I got this mainly so I could use it with my old iogear kvm switch (vga only no dvi) and use my new 2009 mac mini and my pc machine at the same time.
    First thing I did was connect it directly to my Acer x243w via vga cable to make sure it worked correctly and it did except that at 1900x1200 resolution part of the screen was cut off! So I tried the miniport firmware update on Apple's website but when I ran it it said I already had a newer firmware 1.03 and the one I downloaded was only 1.0.
    Anyways, that didn't help so I got the bright idea of manually hitting the autoadjust button on my LCD monitor and that did the trick and got the screen recentered at 1900x1200! The display looks as sharp and clear as using the default DVI that the mini comes with and no strange flickering or any other problems mentioned by others.
    So after all that I tried my old KVM switch and it also works great still so I"m happy since I can now use my mac and pc at the same time. Also can now use 2 monitors with my macmini now ;)
    Reason I knocked off a star was for high price and plastic where screws are supposed to go in don't work too good.

    Works perfectly

    Works fine on my NEC NP50 DLP projector. Maybe there is some sync signal problem on some monitors - I don't know. It works fine for me.

    Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter

    At first I was disappointed. It wouldnt work on my 40 inch Samsung, but I was able to fix it. Now, it works fine. By going to Sytem Preference-Display-(DETECT DISPLAY and fool around with GATHER WINDOW), I was able to make it work. Hopefully this will help you guys out.

    Great Product

    I just got this at the Apple Store and it works amazing, easy to use and all the options are right in front of you, and 2 monitors will make your life easier if you always have more than 2 apps open at all times

    Great Adapter!

    Apple's Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter works great for me, using HP monitors. The adapters are really easy to use—just make sure all your connections are made properly and securely, then it just works. By using Displays in System Preferences, you can arrange the order of monitors and drag the menu bar to which ever monitor you want to use it on. It is a great, easy to use, product—thanks Apple.

    Quality connector

    This connector fits snug (but not too snug) on my unibody MacBook. Works perfectly with VGA projectors and a Sony HDTV.

    Make sure it's plugged in when running a software update so that it can be updated.

    Junk

    Physically, the design of this adapter barely allows you to get a good solid connection to a VGA cable. Apple was too concerned with making it pretty and the flush surface just gets in the way. It does NOT work at all with my Samsung plasma HDTV, and when connected to my smaller Toshiba 720p TV, the picture periodically drops for a second or two every several minutes. This new Mini DisplayPort they stuck us with on the new MBP's is just a FAIL all around from everything I read.

    Worked perfectly

    Adapter worked perfectly with my new iMac and older KDS 17" VGA monitor.

    Flawless as usual.

    The Problem with Reviews

    The problem with product reviews is most people who submit reviews are those with a problem. This products works fine. Plugged it in and it worked. A product this simple is not usually commented on because there is not much to go wrong. I read a few reviews before I bought it but I had no problems. Does what it is supposed to do.

    Doesn't work...

    Doesn't work, and can't seem to find the latest (May '09) firmware update. My previous MacBook Pro adapters worked great to VGA, S-video, and composite video. With the new PowerBook Pros with Mini DisplayPort there is no longer an analog output from the video card, and this adapter does NOT do the trick. I give up!
