      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!!!

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

      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.

      There may have been a manufacturing issue.

      Very puzzling that the reviews are so split between lovers and haters of this adapter. I looked this up on Amazon and found many very recent reviews overwhelmin Very puzzling that the reviews are so split between lovers and haters of this adapter. I looked this up on Amazon and found many very recent reviews overwhelmingly quite positive. So I will get one to avoid having to fork over the cash for a spare MagSafe power supply just to have the right connector. I have an 85W spare for the old 2011 MacBook I am leaving behind and it will be the one reminder of the old computer that I simply wore out. I gave it 5 stars because I expect it to work fine as the recent reviews indicate.

      Stops working after a couple months, i think i know why

      This does exactly what you would expect but it stopped working after maybe 4-5 months. I think it stopped working because it got too hot using it with the metal This does exactly what you would expect but it stopped working after maybe 4-5 months. I think it stopped working because it got too hot using it with the metal magsafe charger, so now i am using it with my plastic magsafe charger and it no longer gets hot.

      Works flawlessly for over 4 years now

      Never had a single problem with it, 4+ years in the service under daily use with my MacBook Pro and Apple Thunderbolt Display.
