    Bought this to use with my 2015 MBP. Doesn't work with any monitor or projectors or patch panel.

    VGA - Buyer Beware

    • Written by Jamie B from Thornton

    I've bought several of these adapters and even a dual adapter for VGA/HDMI to use with my Macbook Pro and none of them work. :( I get constant flickering on the monitor screen. To pay over $30 for this and it doesn't work is just like pouring money down a rat hole. I wouldn't recommend this at all!

    Not Sure Why Apple Sells This...

    • Written by joe M from St. Louis

    It's sturdy and reliable, BUT, it just doesn't do what you need it to do! It's basically useless. I stream some cable apps (HBO, Showtime, and Starz) and I noticed that when I used Google Chrome as my browser, they played fine. BUT, when I used Safari as my browser, they refused to play! Only when I replaced it with a Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter did they play. What's the point in selling this Apple!!?

    Does absolutely nothing

    • Written by Mitchell D from Sacramento

    I've tried everything from the official apple adapter to several knock-offs, nothing works. Apple even decided to hide the "detect display button (you have to press the right "option" button on keyboard to get it to pop up), but even then, still cannot detect any external displays. Just like the company, this product is absolute trash. This is the last time I try to troubleshoot stuff like this on their horribly designed, overly-expensive products. Goodbye forever, apple-trash.

    Buyer Beware

    • Written by Marco A from Chicago

    I recently purchased this from the apple store to be used when I give lectures. On the very first attempt to use it the picture flickered a bit but was otherwise OK. When the class ends I walk over to my second lecture and plug in my computer and the adapter and NOTHING happens. I try again and the screen on my mac goes dark then nothing. I have all my students walk back over to the last calssroom and the thing still doesn't work. My first lecture of the year was a real stinker as a result. Very disappointed. I spent the extra $20 because I thought I was buying quality... I was wrong. Go buy a generic knockoff. At least when it breaks you only spent $6

    Just as unreliable as the off brand dongles

    • Written by AtlNCS A from Atlanta

    This particular dongle for Display Port/Thunderbolt is very quirky. It will work fine for our School's projectors for a brief period. We have bought dozens over the past 6 years for our schools and have also bought some from off brand sites. These brand names will all work initially but often give out at the same rate as the off brand dongles (3-6 months). Trying another dongle from a (big online) brand name competitor that has high reviews so fingers crossed.

    As we don't require going into high resolution projector displays XGA/WXGA is the most common, or lower resolution so the off brand ones are just as good (aka break as often) as the name brand dongle. If going into a higher resolution display, this my be the best choice.

    Works well but won't mirror when lid is shut

    • Written by Cai V from Brisbane

    I bought the Mini Display Port so that I could use my computer screen instead of the Macbook screen however when I put the screen on mirror and close the lid on the Macbook the LG screen turns off. I'm very disappointed with this product and is of little use because my Macbook stops sending the display signal. As dual screen it works well.

    Extremely poor

    • Written by David E from Northwich

    This product is not at the high standard you come to expect from apple.

    I am unable to connect my brand new Macbook to my Samsung TV as it would seem apple did not properly test this product before releasing it.

    Do NOT buy this product if you have a Samsung TV...

    Problem with Samsung TV

    • Written by Alex L 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~
