    Works like an apple product should.

    • Written by from Cannock

    Plug into the display port , attach to VGA (and realise how archaic this is after the ease of display port) and the new display works !
    Used with an LCD projector and a VGA to TV adapter with no problems whatsoever.

    Absolutely useless

    • Written by from Chambesy

    Simply does not work with a variety of CRT monitors. And updating the firmware did not help for my 19 inch LaCie Electronblue monitor.

    Not to mention that the DVI adaptor, which is supposed to have addressed these issues, is a DVI-D so it carries no analog signal, forcing you to buy a VGA adaptor, not to mention how pricey they are.

    I am very very disappointed with apple lately, and I have been using them for years, but for the past two years i have only had one good product from apple, my unibody MacBook Pro and still have complaints about it that never arose with my old G4 iMac or G5 Mac Pro.

    Mini DisplayPort to VGA

    • Written by from Glasgow

    I got it at an Apple Retail Store, and it's great! It works brilliant connecting my MacBook to my DGM 19" Flat Screen TV, but it's very expensive for a cable, so it only got four stars. Please lower the price apple!!!

    Not useable with projectors

    • Written by

    Have tries several adapters on several projectors. I got a picture on the beamer, but only in 1024x768 which is wrong format and wrong resolution.
    What I wonder is if ther's anyone who knows if it is nessecary to have IDbits connected as well. This is not possible in this building. At ALL. Therefore the signal is "only"
    RGBHV which all standard PC's can handle. It is not possible to change the resolution on the Mac's own screen neither on the projector.

    Problem with Samsung TV

    • Written by from Hong Kong

    I bought this from apple shop and delivered to my home a few days later and found it not working with my 40" Samsung HDTV (while my other notebook with built in vga port worked without problem). Called them up, they sent a courier to pick up the device and refunded to my credit card. Excellent service, Poor Product. Not sure if the new firmware update solved this problem, but until now, I cannot enjoy using macbook on my 40" TV via vga port in the year of 2009~

    Works fine

    • Written by from Holstebro

    I use this device almost daily in different situations, both from my iMac, my Macbook air and a Mac mini, and it works. But some times (not often) there is something not working in first try, but with a reboot or a reconnect it seems to fix it.

    Not much cop at all

    • Written by from Harlow

    Can't do up screws into adapter- very poor design. I had to give it 1 star as Apple's reviewing software won't let me proceed otherwise it would be zero

    Display problems

    • Written by from Oxford

    Possible cause of failure to operate projectors or large screen display may be the quality or length of the VGA cable. I have had sync problems with some longer and lower quality leads which disappeared when a high quality cable was substituted. I have had the problem with other adapters so check the cable first.

    Big disappointment!

    • Written by from Leyburn

    I recently started using an Imac & decided I wanted to use Keynote for presentations, so decided to buy a new Macbook. Big disappointment! As soon as I plugged in the VGA adaptor cable I was struck by how poor a fit it was - it wouldn't stay in place due to the weight of the VGA connector blocks at one end and the tiny mini display port connection at the other. Worse still, even when I physically held it in place I couldn't get any output to either Optoma or Epson projectors; the Macbook screen just went blank for a split second. I rang technical support who talked me through various possible solutions, but there was still no picture and I was advised to return the machine as it might have a faulty port. Reading the other comments on here I suspect the problem is more widespread than one 'faulty' Macbook, and I will sadly have to return it & carry on using my clunky (but stubbornly reliable) old Dell laptop for presentations or find an old Macbook that has better ports.

    useless

    • Written by from Leytonstone

    I wanted to used it with my new Macbook, but it doesn't see the monitor (new HP 2309v).
    I've tried it with my Mac Mini and it doesn't work either. Only the mini-DVI/VGA adapter works with my Mac Mini.
    Mini Display/DVI can't be used with DVI/VGA, because the combination doesn't carry the analog signal...
    As both Macbook and Macbook Pro don't have the mini-DVI port, this adapter will give many people a headache and will force them to buy much more expensive Apple monitors.

    It's useless. My brand new 23" monitor will have to go to the skip, because of that.

    Had to buy for an Xserve

    • Written by from Surbiton

    So cheap they dont give you one of these in the server box, however this is the adaptor you need if you want to integrate your new xserve into a KVM setup.

    Un reliable

    It will work perfectly when connected to a Computer monitor, But anything else it will need to reboot to be able to connect to it... which is very inconvenient!

    This connects to VGA physically but does not always work. Beware.

    Exceptionally bad aesthetic design

    • Written by from Ealing

    Apple computers and accessories are functional AND beautiful. Not this one! When the VGA plug is connected to the white block it looks exceptionally ugly 3" away from the laptop.

    I cannot imagine why the designers did not make the lead on this about 12" to 15" allowing the silly white block to be hidden over the back of the desk. .

    Astonishingly poor design (even if it functions well)
