    Works great!

    • Written by from Omaha

    Just got a Macbook Pro 13" and the adapter works seamlessly with my projector. There were non in the Apple Store by my house and I was told that it didn't exist by a genius there, but I found it online and it works well. :)

    Works Just fine!

    Works perfectly with my VGA monitor and my company's overhead projector. Caution: This is NOT a TV adapter, it is an adapter for a VGA compatible monitor.

    Blinking monitor with my Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter

    • Written by from Denens

    Dear Apple,
    I am fan of your products, but this is getting strangely disappointing.

    I have a 26" Benq monitor, and with my previous MB Pro it was already pretty complicated to synchronize it in full external screen definition. You needed a trick: put the Mac in standby, then open and close fast, etc...

    Now, with my new MB Pro and the Mini Displayport to vga adapter, not only you didn't fix this problem, but I am experiencing constant blinks (every 3-5 minutes).

    I have noticed that there are many other unanswered complaints regarding this matter.

    I am tired of searching for forums throughout the net; is there any way I can get a feedback about this?

    THANKS

    Works w/ HP w2207h!

    • Written by from Lawrence

    I was hesitant to buy this adapter at first because of all the bad reviews. However, I was wanting to project my Late 2008 Macbook's screen on to my HP w2207h monitor. I'm glad I ended up going and purchasing this adapter! Plugged it in and worked without one single glitch. I'd definitely recommend this adapter to someone looking to project their tiny 13" Macbook screen onto a much larger screen.

    Pricey (no surprise) but "just works" perfectly for business use

    Enter conference room.
    Connect VGA from projector to "Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adaptor."

    Turn on projector and connect displayport to MacBook Pro. Boom.. the image on your mac is now on the big display and everyone is looking at it. The screen on the MacBook Pro will likely shrink to the resolution of the projector. At first you are not happy about losing your screen resolution. Then you realize your MacBook Pro figured out it needed to downsize and did it for you automatically. It just worked.

    I have also connected to a number of non-tv, old-fashions VGA displays with success.

    Not consistent! - Work around required.

    • Written by from London

    First time I tried it no problem - wiring my MacBook Air up to a Dell MP3400 so I thought great - silly me! Next time same set up but although the Mac changed screen resolution the projector did nothing! MAJOR PAIN! Like I had people over and it just would not work! Finally I found the only work-around - and so far this does work every time. You have to turn your Mac completely off. Make sure the projector is ON - plug the projector into your Mac and then turn your Mac on. In that order and only in that order - and then when your Mac comes on about 10 seconds later the projector will pick up the signal and you're in business. Not that impressed though! You would think Apple would have gotten this sorted.

    Thunderbolt!

    • Written by from Malolos

    bought it few weeks ago, I used it for my Keynote presentation. This adapter is simple, elegant and easy-to-use. In my opinion I think the owner is responsible for the care and use of this device. The first time i plugged it in my MacBook Pro Thunderbolt port it was easy, effortless. works fine. Thumbs up APPLE :) I wish that there would be an original Apple Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter.

    VGA Adapter

    I just got a new school MacBook Pro and I love the machine unfortunately it isn't able to hook up to my View Sonic projector at all. I am extremely disappointed that the connection end was changed that much!

    The adapter works perfectly when connecting a 13" MacBook Pro to a Dell (or any non-Mac) external monitor. Great size to travel with as well.

    Disappointed.

    • Written by from Brighton

    Previously used a Mini DVI to VGA adaptor for presentations and screening film clips on my Macbook without problems. After upgrading to a Macbook Pro, I bought this adaptor only to find that it delivered dim, washed out images. Black and white films are an indecipherable mess. Tested on multiple systems with the same result. An inferior product, and I'm not sure there's any alternative.

    • Written by from EXETER

    I just finished getting my brand new Macbook Pro 17" configured and ready to go when I needed to do a presentation at short notice. I went to the local Apple shop bought this device, plugged it in and it worked straight off without any hassle. I re-booted to Bootcamp and ran Windows 7, plugged the device in again and hey-presto it worked perfectly. And my presentation went well!

    WORKS GREAT!

    • Written by from Frisco

    I have a Mac 2.0 duo core and needed an extra monitor to run windows 7. Plugged it and works perfect! One problem I ran into was not being able to close the laptop and the external monitor stay on. After trying everything I realize I just needed to hit the space bar on the wireless keyboard and Wallla! Simple solution to what seemed to be a major problem. Only tried to do this because my PC crashed at work and needed something to work quick. When I get the PC back I will be putting it on Craig's List and NEVER again will I buy another Pc! Unfortunatly the rest of the world has not transformed to MAC. When will people realize they spend twice money in the long run buying software and ultimently getting them fixed. With Mac theres never any down time!

    Set up?

    • Written by from Sugar Land

    I rated this 4 stars only for my iMac. On my iMac I have the Mini Display Port to VGA Adapter and it works fine.

    So far I can not seem to make it work for my Macbook Pro. Is there a different way to configure it for the Macbook?

    For the iMac, I went to System Pref, Display, Detect Display and it works. Not so on the Macbook.

    Easy and fully functional

    • Written by from Silkeborg

    It is a major flaw in the screen industry that they never replaced VGA by mini-VGA as did Apple, but apparently they were looking out for another technology, like, e.g., HDMI. So Apple's frequent role as a game changer as we've seen in with the touch-screen technology for mobile phones, the mouse for personal computers, the wireless tablet to read newspapers (iPad), the easy-to-access store to buy legal software (AppStore), was not actualised here. As a consequence, we Mac users are all forced to use adapters to hook up to existing technology like the case of VGA screens. It's a pity, because mini-VGA was a good idea; easy, feasible, cheap.

    I've tried out Apple's Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter for two months now, and it works flawlessly. The cable connecting the two ends — VGA and mini-VGA — makes the whole issue of combining the connections easier, because the VGA cable in the other end that ports the image data to the television or external computer screen is cumbersome to deal with. Usually, VGA cables are big, clumsy and hard to twist.

    I used the Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter to connect both to a cheap 19'' computer screen and to my television set. The images turning up on my Sony Bravia 32'' flatscreen are excellent; I've never seen my television set present the world in such a beautiful way. The images are knife sharp as on a computer screen, but with a much more vivid colour depth. Whenever you have the chance, use your TV flatscreen to display your computer activities. And use the Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter to connect your Mac to the television set's VGA port.

    Don't use VGA for an HDTV, use DVI/HDMI!

    • Written by from Littleton

    This adapter works well with my HP w2007 20" LCD monitor. The picture is crisp and steady. It's hard to distinguish from a DVI connection.

    I do find it's best to let the monitor sync itself when I plug it in and then just leave it and not fuss with it. If I hit the monitor's "Auto Sync" button the result is often a blurry display. If this happens, unplugging and plugging the adapter fixes it, as does performing a "factory reset" using my monitor's menu. I suggest trying these things if your monitor is having trouble getting a good sync.

    For those of you having trouble using this to connect a MacBook to an HDTV, let me offer this advice: Your HDTV probably has an HDMI port, so that's what you should be using, not VGA. Get the Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter and also a DVI to HDMI cable. You will get a far better result. I use this method to connect my MacBook to a Panasonic HDTV and it works beautifully. Please, do yourself a favor and do not use the VGA port if your HDTV has HDMI (or DVI). Hope that helps!

    Don't buy

    • Written by from Houston

    It just doesn't work. Screen is waving, changing colors. Often I cannot even choose the resolution I want for my external screen. I've tried with two diffrent screens, and none of them worked good. This cable behaves like the worst Microsoft product and Apple pretends not to see it.

    VGA adapter

    I am new to MAC and just got my macbook a week ago. I've already used this adapter on 2 different projectors for different presentations I have given. It worked without any problems. I just hooked it up and it worked. Very simple (and I am definitely not computer savvy).
