    Poor Quality

    I have gone through 2 of these. At 70 dollars a pop, it's not ideal. The only negative I have with my computer.

    Break way too frequently.

    3rd time I've had to buy one. I'm done with this.

    Glad I'm not alone, but sheesh!

    About to buy my THIRD power adaptor! First one actually lasted about a year (thank goodness!!!) before the cord pulled out of the MagSafe plug. I kept it going for a while by just "stuffing" it back in, but finally sprung for a new one when the short started shutting the computer down (this is probably not good!). In two weeks - the first time it got just slightly yanked - the new one's plug separated from the magnet, which stays stuck in the computer. I can squeeze it together and it kinda works, but another three weeks later the cord is cracking at the same end!

    It's a great idea, but the construction is awful!!!

    Horrible quality.

    Why is the cord made from such poor, inflexible material? Even Dell makes better chargers than Apple. The material is completely unsuitable for bending and wrapping which are essential if you want to charge your laptop on the go. The material that encases the wires inside split open and the wires get damaged, and then you need to shell out $80 for another horrible charger. I enjoy using my Macbook, but what good is a Macbook that can't charge? I'm going to be using my spare non Apple computer, and probably won't purchase this charger; it's just going to break again in a few months.

    Cheap quality cable cracking

    This is my second charger cracking the insulation (cheap white rubber) by the computer end. Charging $70 for a cheap cable quality in unnaceptable!?

    Complete Junk!

    Need I say more. Just read the other reviews.

    Although mine has lasted over 2 years (I guess that's good for these?)

    But I went to unplug my computer today and the connector was so hot it actually burned my finger. These could actually cause fires or potential for serious lawsuits.

    I would suggest a recall or better design. I LOVE my mac and iphone but the cords are garbage!

    Worst Charger Ever

    Mac chargers are very expensive and break so easily! The wires feeding into the computer clip are ultra prone to getting damaged. I have replaced my cord several times with several models and no matter how careful I am, it's life span is woefully disappointing. For the price, it should be far better. At the very least you should be able to replace only the section prone to damage and not the whole cord!

    Needs another redesign

    I replace this one for my MBP 13" about once every year. That money could be used on upgrading my laptop but instead I have to waste it on a poorly made product. It tends to fray right at the base of the connector and eventually stops working (probably not even safe to use at that point). Very annoyed. I'm only writing this because I just noticed my current one is starting to fray. Purchased last February.

    Otherwise it does it's job. It charges.

    unsatisfactory product

    I take extremely good care of my computer + laptop, and after only 2 years the adapter just stopped working.

    Piece of Junk

    I have a 2 year old Macbook Pro and am about to need my 3rd power cord. They either stop working or on my latest cord, the rubber coating of the cord just behind the actual connector has split open. It is now being held together with a rubber band and tape. I love my Macbook Pro but the power cord is junk, especially for the price. I spend 2K on a laptop and all Apple can come up with are junk power cords that are over-priced and don't last? Ridiculous!

    Horrible!!

    I dont even want to give them 1 full star. This charger is horrible. I have had my Mac pro for only more than 2 years, and I have changed 3 chargers. I was lucky enough to get replacements for free since I was still under warranty. But looking at this product's life span, I doubt this current charger will last long. And I'll be forced to spent $80 on this awful product!
    Seriously Apple, your product is supposed to be superior, dont leave me with this impression that you are trying to steal some more money from customer by offering this cheap/low quality charger!

    P/S: a little warning for Mac users out there, my friend's charger lasted much longer than mine (3 years- SURpRISE!) but died eventually (no surprise!) She ordered 2 chargers off ebay,and they all worked improperly, died within a month. Don't ever order from Ebay, its a waste of time and money. We are in such a dilemma, the only option she has now is ordering another charger from Apple.. sad!

    Such a short life

    I was hoping Macbook wouldn't cause too much trouble for me, but I was wrong. In less than two years I repaired the computer twice and costed almost 100 bucks. Now, the adapter wire is suddenly broken and I am going on a travel next week. Plus, apple is charging toooooo much on accessories. Maybe that's why the parts are not durable.

    Chargers DO NOT last!

    On my third charger, the last one only lasted a year! I have both a Macbook Pro and Macbook Air and I have purchased 3 chargers for each of them.

    What a rip off

    I bought this power adaptor in late November of 2012. It stopped working a week ago. This is my third adaptor for the same macbook. I am very gentle with my power adaptors and they all break after a few months. It is extremely flawed. It is ridiculous that I have to pay for another power adaptor because the previous one did not last longer than 6 months. I have no choice but to go and buy a fourth $79 power adaptor. Redesign the power adaptors already!

    HATE THIS

    This is literally my third one and i've only had my computer for four years. They are terrible quality and terribly overpriced.

    Lousy.

    For making computers that last me so long, these chargers really stink. Mine has been on the frizt for months and you have to play with the cord for 20 minutes to get it into a position that allows the charge to go through to the computer. Today it is totally dead. No charge no matter what I do. Wish these were a little better. Looks like I'm not the only one with this problem.
