    Every one of these I've had has been perfect.

    • Written by from Bellevue

    First, word of the wise, if you don't know what you're buying, just head to an Apple Store; they're everywhere, and the staff is overwhelmingly helpful! That out of the way, my team at work has probably two dozen of these floating around between personal and team use, and I've never even heard of one going bad or coming defective. I wouldn't even leave a review, but this should have 5 stars next to it.

    Furthermore, before getting my position here, I'd never even used a MacBook before, and I was still easily able to figure out what was what by looking at a DVI adapter, and looking at the hole in my MacBook Pro to plug in to. Another pro tip, if you're SUPER new to this stuff, take a picture of the plug from your external monitor, and the ports in your MacBook. Take those snaps to the store and I can almost guarantee you can't mess up.

    Mini DVI not working Solution

    • Written by from Haverhill

    OK this is easy for multiple monitors get an external graphics card and a DVI to HDMI cable Download the graphics card software and hey presto,

    NOTE!!! if one of the displays will not register in my experience could be either unplug and replug the cables while the computer is on(yes i said it) then the graphics cards will start to talk to each other , they must get stuck or blocked or some other techincal reason, which i dont know but i have 13 inch MBP running 2x 21inch LED monitors with very little latency issues (speed to respond). Apple dont even know their own tech... so dont ask them email me for proof if you dont believe me.
    Equipment list:

    hdmi monitors x2 (or as many as you want)
    Diamond external graphics card, suited to the monitor(list is on their website)
    Displaylink software (free download from their site)
    mini DVI/thinderbolt cable to hdmi
    job done....

    look before you buy

    • Written by from gateshead

    I bought this to connect a Dell Ultrasharp U2412M silver 24" second display to my iMac 24" 2.8 Ghz core 2 duo.
    Works like a charm and very pleased with the quality of the display output.
    There are a few people complaining about incompatibility issues but as long as you do your research and look at the pic gallery of the pinouts there is no excuse for getting the wrong connector.

    This worked really well between my MacBook and sony tv. It took me a while to work it out because you have to tick mirror image in display. But once i did this it worked find. Please note this only fits into order apple computers and laptops like my 2006 MacBook.

    Works fine

    • Written by from Bothell

    This Apple Mini-DVI to DVI adapter works fine with a Belkin DVI-to-HDMI cable (TR843LL/A) on my iMac. Just plugged the cables together to my TV and selected 'Detect displays' on the Display preferences window.

    iMac: 24" 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    TV: Samsung UN55B6000 on HDMI input #3

    I thought I'd have to rearrange my HDMI inputs to use input #1 based on comments in the TV user manual concerning DVI to HDMI conversion. I tried input #3 (the next open spot) and got immediate success.

    5 stars? The part was no more expensive than I expected and worked straightforwardly.

    works well

    • Written by from ORANGEVILLE

    While traveling in England I had a 13" MacBook and was trying to do web programming. Nowhere near enough real estate! Spent 2 weeks wishing for an external monitor. Then it occurred to me that the 27" TV in my flat was HDMI compatible (duh). So I bought this adapter and a VGA->HDMI cable. Plugged the adapter into my laptop, the VGA end of the cable into the adapter, and the HDMI end of the cable to the TV, set the TV to HDMI input, and it worked like a charm. I was able to mirror or have an extended desktop (my preference). I was able to walk down the street and pick this up at any one of the many Apple-authorized computer stores around (Apple, why can't you have these in the States??) I was looking for a mini-DVI->HDMI adapter so I could buy a standard HDMI cable (which I would have been able to re-purpose later), but they didn't have one. This alternate solution works just fine.

    Awesome!

    • Written by from Waianae

    I bought this product yesterday and I am very pleased with it. My iMac with Intel Duo LCD is broken and it would've cost $631 (part+labor but not including tax) to replace the LCD panel because I do not have Apple Care. Bought this Mini DVI to DVI adapter and a new monitor - it works awesome!

    Works Great

    • Written by from Roseville

    To those with a misunderstanding... DVI-D stands for "DVI-Digital" and DVI-I stands for "DVI-Integrated".
    DVI-I is the older standard that could push both digital and analog signals. DVI-D is digital only. As long as you use the right DVI (DVI-D) cable to your monitor you will be in buisness.
    Taken from Wikipedia:
    "The long flat pin on a DVI-I connector is wider than the same pin on a DVI-D connector, so it is not possible to connect a male DVI-I to a female DVI-D by removing the 4 analog pins. It is possible, however, to connect a male DVI-D cable to a female DVI-I connector. Many flat panel LCD monitors have only the DVI-D connection so that a DVI-D male to DVI-D male cable will suffice when connecting the monitor to a computer's DVI-I female connector."

    Works perfectly!

    • Written by from Monterrey

    It does what it says it will do. It does it perfectly.

    The problem for folks saying that it does not fit certain models is because they bought the wrong product. They bought a mini, when they needed to be buying a micro. Two different word with different meanings.

    For all of those people who say "i plug it in and all i get is the desktop.... all you have to do is drag a window to the other desktop.... like iTunes or a web page. What it allows is for you desktop to extend the normal amount and it gives you more space..

    Mini DVI to DVI

    • Written by from Weston

    It is perfect for what it is sold. I pluged it in, then bought a DVI to HDMI converter, then just used my HDMI cable from the DVD player. It is tricky getting a mirrror image off the screen, the instructions are not so clear but with a little tinkering it is done. Very pleasant viewing in HD.

    Does exactly what it says it's going to do...

    • Written by from Dallas

    Works perfectly to connect the mini-DVI port on my MacBook to my older "crystal-plastic" ADC cinema display, via ADC-DVI converter in the middle.

    Similar to another post, my only (minor) gripe is that the cord could be a little longer, to make for a slightly less conspicuous on-desk cable nest.

    That people are posting negative reviews because they aren't reading details about both the products they already own and the products they are purchasing, BEFORE they make a purchase, is just ridiculous. Don't give a product a bad review because you don't do your homework beforehand.

    Perfect for hooking up secondary display

    • Written by from Rochester

    This adapter works beautifully to connect me to my 19 inch lcd and more recently a Dell 24inch S2409. Connection is firm and have never had any issues.

    As a warning to those who are complaining about lack of DVI-I support, DVI-I has digital and analog pins for when your graphics card reaches it's digital resolution and has to 'step down' to an analog signal to go bigger. Your mac will push 1920x1200 all digital with no issue. If you need more pixels, just buy the VGA adapter.
