    Poor quality - uninspiring design - a reluctant 'must-have'

    • Written by Philip L from London

    I have a sleek aluminium Macbook with this piece of white plastic sticking out of it. The VGA adapter is the only way to guarantee a connection to most screens without having to carry a pocket full of similar very expensive adapters. Couldn't the gurus of Apple come up with something that at least looks as if it was designed to go on a Macbook?

    Technically not very good - My new Apple DVD USB drive has had issues drawing enough power from the single USB socket

    And it has now broken - the VGA still works but power does not go through it. It is only a couple of months old.

    A very poorly designed expensive product.

    Works fine.

    Ironic, this same product gets 5/5 stars on Amazon yet all the hate on Apple.com. It does what it's supposed to do.

    very average

    My main complaint is that no matter what I do, just can't get my computer to connect to a monitor. I think the vga component of the adapter doesn't work very well.

    Power is fine. USB input works most of the time, however does not connect to my toshiba harddrive for some reason.

    Useless since last update

    • Written by Stephane A from Ottawa

    Everything has been said already about the price, the aesthetics, the inconvenience, etc. of this product but it just stopped working after the latest firmware update -- unless you're ready to reboot at least once a day: it sure works, for a few hours, and then the LED of your drive lights up, you hear the drive spin (if that kind of drive) but it no longer mounts, until you reboot. C'mon, what is this? Not even worth a single star...
