    Works perfectly, but way overpriced

    • Written by from london

    It certainly works as it should, but how can they justify the price?

    it's good, but not great (personal view)

    Obviously, the quality of image you're going to get depends on the graphics capability of your Mac.

    I tried one of these on my 13" MacBook, connected to a DELL 27" monitor.
    In the end, even after playing around with various resolution settings for the external monitor, I preferred the super sharp display on my Mac. (I'm using my Mac mostly for text based stuff, so maybe for watching movies it's different.)

    Also, might be worth pointing out that while the HDMI end will only fit one way, the miniport end (the bit that actually goes into your Mac) CAN be inserted upside down. I know, 'cos I did it that way (never connected one of these before) and spent a little while wondering why the heck it didn't work. DOH!

    Does the job but is very awkward

    • Written by from Nottingham

    This does the job of connecting my MacBook Pro to my LG monitor just fine.

    The problem is that because the cable is so short it's very awkward, it would be much better if the cable was perhaps twice as long. At the moment the bulky section just keeps getting trapped behind the desk.

    Mini Display Port to DVB... not DVI?

    • Written by from LIPHOOK

    This DVI adapter works perfectly as a a way of driving an external digital display using a DVB cable but it does not have analogue output (those 4 pins surrounding the big flat pin). This is a problem for me if I arrive somewhere that they only use analogue connectors for the lcd projectors.

    Life should not be this complicated - after owning many macbooks I now have a collection of useless external monitor cable adapters.

    I think a DVI cable carries both analogue and digital whereas a DVB cable is digital only so maybe this product description is misleading?
