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

      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!!!

      Works Off and On, Shouldn't Even be Necessary

      I purchased at 2015 MacBook Pro, alongside a brand new Apple Cinema Display. First off, I was disappointed to find that Apple hasn't even updated their Cinema D I purchased at 2015 MacBook Pro, alongside a brand new Apple Cinema Display. 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.

      Will not last

      What a fun thing for apple to make! An adaptor for a connector that they no longer make and is very very prone to failure. I have gone through 4 of them so far, What a fun thing for apple to make! An adaptor for a connector that they no longer make and is very very prone to failure. I have gone through 4 of them so far, they seem to average about 6 months of use before ceasing to function.

      Works Like a Charm

      I own three of these. They all see heavy use at both my business and my home. I've never had one fail, and never had one give out on me. Very, very occasiona I own three of these. They all see heavy use at both my business and my home. I've never had one fail, and never had one give out on me. Very, very occasionally, the little light doesn't go on, but when that happens I'm either still getting a charge (so who cares), or, I flip it over and all is well. Lastly, $9.99 shipped? THANK YOU, APPLE!!!

      WHY THE BAD REVIEWS

      I'm starting to think there's some 3rd party maker of this product that is infecting this reviews section. It took me 2 years to decide to get one because I was I'm starting to think there's some 3rd party maker of this product that is infecting this reviews section.
