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~

      Works well

      Been using it for about 6 years now, no problems at all so far and no signs of wear and tear. Quite pricey, but long lasting.

The Monitor display was immaculate and looked even better than the 1920 X 1080 it showed in the display settings. I will be looking after it well for my future trips! Well worth the money for the hassle saved.
