    I have now purchased three of these adapters. To my suprise non of them work with any display I connect them to. I spent over $1300 on this 13" MBP and was really looking forward to using it with one of our monitors in the offices. Where is the fix Apple?!!!

    Check it before leaving the store.

    • Written by from Boca Raton

    Unless you live really close to the apple store, I would ask them to check this on a machine in the store before leaving. Bought one today, bought my second monitor, hooked it up and nothing. Swapped cables, nothing. Called Apple Tech support, they had me do a few things, ended up back at the store. Tested my purchased one on their computer, nothing. Took another from the package, nothing. The manager allowed me to have one more, but could not test it there. 18 miles later, it works.

    Seems like a shame to have to get an adapter for a dual port video card, but $29 is not bad after spending money on the Mac Pro.

    Worst Adapter EVER!

    • Written by from Wesley Chapel

    The cable for the DVI to Mini DisplayPort is about an inch long. Are you kidding me? This puts a lot of pressure on the minidisplay port on my macbook pro. Any slight movement and it bends the displayport inside the macbook. So if your planning to hook it up to a laptop, be prepared to shell out a few hundred dollars to replace your mini display port on your macbook in a few months. Makes you wonder if apple did this to make more money?

    Solid Apple product

    • Written by from Fremont

    This might cost a bit, but it's top notch quality. The first one I got was defective, so I took off one star. But the level of professional customer support I got (I got yelled at when i went to Fry's) from Apple made me add one star. They tested the defective one, took out a 20" ACD and tried it. Then they gave me a new one, and opened it + tested it before I bought it. Fry's, Best Buys would have shoved me out the door. I know the later has done that before.

    Works great with Samsung LCD

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    I bought this cable and a DVI to HDMI cable to hook up my macbook pro to a 40" samsung LCD. You will also need a Y audio cable to get the sound. After hook up, close the top enough to make the laptop sleep. Then use an ipod remote to navigate the menu. The product works great.

    30 not fully supported

    • Written by from Bondi

    I bought a 15" macbook pro this weekend at the apple store in Sydney and was also sold this adaptor after stating that i needed to connect to old displays (as well as 30's). The apple rep told me this would run the 30" display fine but it does not. You can only get 1280x800 out of the 30 which looks terrible. It should state this in the product description. I'm not sure why this is but I have had to resort back down to a 23" old style display in the studio. Not too impressed.

    Works perfectly

    • Written by from Bourgas

    It works perfectly on my iMac with connected Dell 2007WFP via DVI-D.
    I wish only if there was a way to duplicate the menu bar so to be able to have two on the two monitors :)), but that is not in relation to the adapter, so I set 5 stars!

    does not work with apple DVI to RGB converter

    • Written by from Gateshead

    I bought this along with my new macbook, thinking that I could connect my VGA monitors via the old apple DVI to RGB converter that came with my mac mini. It does not work, as the old converter is DVI-I and the new converter is DVI-D. How frustrating! As others have pointed out, why on earth doesn't apple provide a DVI-I connection on this adaptor?

    Good product, can be better

    • Written by

    Bought the adapter today for my MacBook 13.3" 2.0 Alum. Pleased with the performance on my 19" LCD monitor so far, but not quite convinced that I have to leave my MB monitor on-unclosed. Actually I hate the fact the I saw reviews saying I must connect my external input devices (which I own), and boo! then I can use it as I wish. MB is generating a lot of heat and I do not want the heat to cook my MB monitor, that's not a comforting experience using the MB. Mirror display seems not a good choice because things get a little blurry on my external monitor even after I set the corresponding size.

    I know it is just an "ADAPTOR", but come on, make it perfect !! Apple !!

    I have tried the adapter many times and i have even gotten new ones from the store and every time i try it is like my computer does not even recognize the connection to the screen. I have a mini DP to VGA that works fine but the mini DP to DVI does not work at all.

    This Works With My 13.3" Aluminum Macbook

    • Written by from Cicero

    This Mini Display Port works just as it should. I connected my DVI-D Single Link Cable that I brought from Amazon to this Display Port. WARNING it does not provide any sound. You will need an audio cable that connects from your head phone jack to your TV. WARNING you need a DVI-D Single Link Cable Not a DVI-I. Big Difference!

    Does not work

    • Written by from Mountain View

    I bought this for my brand new Samsung Monitor and MacBook Pro.

    The adapter simply does not work in that configuration although my older MacBook Pro with the regular DVI cable does work with the monitor.

    I ended up exchanging it for the VGA adapter. Old technology seems to be the only thing that works for these 1 month old devices.

    Second Display with not turn on

    • Written by from Decatur

    Sometimes when the display that is connected to the Mini DisplayPort to DVI is connected nothing will be displayed. Most of the time this happens when the machine comes out of sleep mode. Unplugging and replugging does not work either. I have rebooted the machine and nothing seems to work. The screen will flicker when the second monitor is connected so it see it but no signal is sent to the monitor.

    so simple, great

    • Written by from New York

    I got this adaptor for my Samsung Sync Master HDTV monitor. Initially they suggested a wrong adaptor, but they exchanged it with the right one. I am new with Apple and still finding my ways with my Macbook. But with this adaptor, it was so simple: just connect it, and that was it! Tech support people are great too.

    Not backwards compatible with DVI -> VGA adapter

    • Written by from Amityville

    If you still have your DVI -> VGA adaptor that came with the previous generation of laptops and where thinking that with purchasing this item you would be able to use that adapter to go from mini display port -> DVI -> VGA and save money instead of having to buy separate Mini D -> DVI and Mini D -> VGA, you thought wrong.

    The product works as specified but I gave it 3 stars for lack of compatibility which when developing a product is something you should consider, also lack of information about this products compatibility and function on the packaging itself when purchased in store.

    Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter doesn't give you full resolution

    • Written by from Castle Hill

    I just bought recently 17" unibody MBP. Before this I used 15" MBP and used it very neatly with a Samsung SyncMaster305T external monitor (2560x1600). The new 17" doesn't have DVI port, as the older 15" MBP, so I just bought a A$45 MiniDisplayPort DVI adapter, just to find out that the maximum supported resolution is 1280x800. No matter what I did on the 17" MBP. After going through all the posts on Apple's web site, I just found out that this is actually not the correct one to work in such a high resolution (!), but I would need the much more expensive $150 (and difficult to find) dual adapter. For what it was expected to do this is a very bad product.

    The adaptor works perfectly

    This adaptor does exactly what is says it does, 100% of the time. I use it for my Apple Cinema Screen at work and at home and it works every time I plug my MacBook Pro in.
