    Not much cop at all

    • Written by from Harlow

    Can't do up screws into adapter- very poor design. I had to give it 1 star as Apple's reviewing software won't let me proceed otherwise it would be zero

    Bad Product

    • Written by from Bellevue

    So I bought this from the Apple store today so I could use it at home.

    When I got home, I booted up my Unibody-Aluminum Macbook, plugged the adapter into my computer, plugged in the VGA cable from my HP Pavilion monitor. Then my Macbook lagged a couple of seconds before the Display settings opened up, nothing is displayed on the external monitor at this point. On the Display settings, I set the resolution for the 2nd monitor to the appropriate numbers. After lagging for another couple of seconds, it adjusted the resolution of my Macbook, instead of the external monitor (which still wasn't displaying anything). I then tried to connect/reconnect the adapter to see if it was a connection problem and then my Macbook just froze, forcing me to shut down the laptop by holding the power button. I tried this thrice more, and nothing seemed to appear on my 2nd monitor.

    Had to buy for an Xserve

    • Written by from Surbiton

    So cheap they dont give you one of these in the server box, however this is the adaptor you need if you want to integrate your new xserve into a KVM setup.

    Not Working Expensive Peripherals

    • Written by from Andheri west

    I have a LG LED LCD TV model 32LS4600.ATR
    When I was told that mini display port to HDMI converter will enable me to watch streaming videos on internet on my TV screen, I purchased one. However, the audio is absent. I have tried almost all tricks within my knowledge but to no avail. The video is excellent but no audio. Now I am advised that since a VGA input is available in the TV, I should buy MDP2VGA converter cable and watch the video and for the audio I should connect the TV through another cable. I want to know whether Mini Display Port carries audio signal or not. My Mac Book Pro is Mid 2012 model.

    Un reliable

    • Written by from Tonbridge

    It will work perfectly when connected to a Computer monitor, But anything else it will need to reboot to be able to connect to it... which is very inconvenient!

    VGA Adapter

    • Written by from Walton

    I have now purchased 2 of these and neither one fits my computer. I have given the model number of my MacBook and have been assured it is the right product only to find it does not fit.

    This connects to VGA physically but does not always work. Beware.

    Exceptionally bad aesthetic design

    • Written by from Ealing

    Apple computers and accessories are functional AND beautiful. Not this one! When the VGA plug is connected to the white block it looks exceptionally ugly 3" away from the laptop.

    I cannot imagine why the designers did not make the lead on this about 12" to 15" allowing the silly white block to be hidden over the back of the desk. .

    Astonishingly poor design (even if it functions well)

    Better description would have been helpful

    • Written by from Cloughjordan

    Like others who've posted here, I'm having to return this item because it's the wrong size for my MacBook. Before ordering, I checked 'About this computer' but it didn't say what kind of display hardware I had (just told me that no display was connected), so I examined the photos of the adapter and, as it looked the same as the display port on my MacBook, I assumed that it would fit okay. When it arrived, though, it was way too small (mini, I guess).

    So, for anyone who has a plain old white MacBook like mine - it DOES NOT HAVE A MINI DISPLAY PORT, so don't waste your time and money ordering this.

    I feel annoyed with Apple for not explaining the difference between an ordinary display port and a mini one. I'm not a techie and I don't want to have to go and dig out all the literature before buying a small accessory - I expect there to be enough information within the product description for me to make the right choice.

    And I still don't know which (if any) adapter's compatible with my MacBook.

    i keep losing it

    • Written by from Santa Fe

    The main problem with this object is that I keep losing it, rendering it useless for its intended task of altering the properties of things near to me. It may be useful to whoever finds it, but I can't vouch for that.
