These things are constantly failing, some die after a few months of use. Very disappointing.

      Works Off and On, Shouldn't Even be Necessary

First off, I was disappointed to find that Apple hasn't even updated their Cinema Display to work natively with the new MacBook Pro MagSafe port. You'd think after spending over $1,000 on a display, and then $2,000+ on a laptop, that Apple would've had the foresight to update the adapter on the Cinema Display. As a business that prides itself on design and ease-of-use, this is just ridiculous. Secondly, the converter doesn't work reliably. I've purchased two in the last three months. There are no moving parts, so I don't understand the converters lose contact and refuse to charge the laptop after about 30-40 days. My second one is now acting up. The MagSafe converter is the only option to get these two devices to work properly with each other, and with that, you'd think Apple would make something that would work reliably.

      Great converter IF YOU WANT TO BUY A NEW ONE AFTER ONLY SEVERAL MONTHS!

      Those converters just stop working after several months. Not much to be added here. They don't work! Cons: stop working after a short while. Pros: NONE!!!

      just as everybody says

      Few products wear out faster. Donuts and corsages rival it in durability. Will work for several days though.

      Not as bad as everyone says

      Our office uses the converter daily, and has been doing so well over 2 years. We have yet to see one fail.

I'm not saying they're not finicky at times, but I've never been unable to charge my computer. I'd prefer not to have to use one, but it's not a deterrent at all.
