    Really good

    • Written by from Cagliari

    Try to connect your mac with any video and you'll be very satisfied of this. You can instantaneously get two screen in which work - you can drag and drop your open windows directly on the other screen - and naturally mirror your desktop if you want. 4 stars because although it is really a good product costs too much.

    Great

    • Written by from Crawley

    I would have preferred MiniDisplay to HDMI, but as it doesn't look like happening for a while, VGA is the next best thing for me (I do not have a DVI slot on my Telly).
    I think I will tweak it to hopfully give me the best quality, but on first impressions I am liking what I see! HD looks good and the colours are vibrant,

    My only negative is that it doesn't quite fill the screen (Sony Bravia 26"). I have 1 inch or so either side of the screen which is black. Does any one know how to change it? Perhaps a little tweaking will help?!?

    On the whole very impressed!

    Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter

    • Written by from bakersfield

    At first I was disappointed. It wouldnt work on my 40 inch Samsung, but I was able to fix it. Now, it works fine. By going to Sytem Preference-Display-(DETECT DISPLAY and fool around with GATHER WINDOW), I was able to make it work. Hopefully this will help you guys out.

    Update the Firmaware

    • Written by from Valley Village

    Try updating the firmware of the Mini Displayport to VGA adapter to fix the intermittent black issues from Apple Support. Use the latest firmware, May 6, 2009 or later.

    VGA adapter

    • Written by from Chudleigh

    I spent £20 or so buying the adapter so I can connect to VGA for projectors etc - and it won't work! Why on earth Apple don't just have a VGA output on the Macbook Pro? Most of the world still use this in professional contexts. I have to do lots of presentations etc and this issue is a REAL PAIN for me. I'm an educational IT consultant - and don't want to muck up a simple thing like connecting to a projector. I love my Mac, having recently changed from PCs - but this sort of a problem is inexcusable for professionals like me. I need my computer to be an extremely reliable workhorse in every way - not just a fancy media plaything..!! Anyone got any helpful ideas?

    Works as advertised

    • Written by from Halifax

    This dongle worked as advertised. I picked up the Mini DisplayPort to VGA adapter for my new Apple Macbook (unibody) 2.0GHz machine, and connected it to two seperate Samsung 20" 206BW monitors, and both functioned fine over VGA. My reason for only using VGA was that both of the monitors are currently tied up in a dual-monitor setup through DVI to my PC, so this was easy to do and I could just click "Source" to move over to my Mac.

    After reading all the reviews I was hesitant, but I figured i'd give it a try for the sake of hoping it would work, and it does (for now). If your only choice is VGA, this will likely work for you (fingers crossed).

    Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter to VGA Monitor

    • Written by from Carrollton

    I'm using the Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter to connect my new MacBook to an old, but perfectly functional, Nokia 446XPro 19" CRT. It works at all supported resolutions through 1600 x 1200 @ 65 Hz just fine (I use it at 1280 x 1024 @ 85 Hz). The picture on the CRT looks slightly less sharp than my old iBookG4 did at the same resolution, but not enough to spring for a new Apple LED Cinema Display (yet).

    I haven't connected it to any other monitor.

    Great adaptor

    • Written by from Clarence Center

    I bought two of these when I got my new retina display MacBook to use with two Dell monitors I had sitting around and they work great! The only complaint I have is the threads for the screws. They're too low to be reached by the screws on one of my monitors and it comes loose every now and then.

    Dont See Why People Complain?

    • Written by from Yucaipa

    I really like this adapter it gives me a chance to put my puny 13" MBP on a 27" 1920x1080 screen. It formats the orientation correctly, unlike my old windows machine wear I had to use a lower res. because windows wouldnt change the orientation. So overall I love this adapter it does what its meant to which is make your Mac have a external display. Stop complaing :)

    Works Well With My Mac Mini (Late 2009)

    • Written by from Brampton

    The only problem I've had with the product is when using with older VGA connection cables, where the side-screws aren't long enough to reach the hole, but the VGA signal still goes through with no problems.

    Never had an issue with VGA connectivity

    • Written by from Tallahassee

    This adapter has proven reliable for us. My only issue is that the perfectly flat "face" of the VGA connection requires relatively long screws on the joining VGA head. Shorter screws don't have enough "bite" to ensure a secure connection, which is a problem not found on the earlier VGA adapters. Stylish and clean, but functionally not quite as easy to get a firm attachment depending on the VGA cable.

    Could be better

    • Written by from Duluth

    I bought this about a year ago and never had any problems up until about a month ago when it stopped working completely. It would appear that the wiring inside of it is junk or there is a bad connection in the adapter itself.

    Solid Product; Works Fine

    • Written by from Watsonville

    This is a solid little cable that does what it says it will. I'm using an older Dell monitor, and there's no problems in terms of connection or image. My only gripe is the $30 price tag, but I like Apple and would rather pay a little more for their products than a little less for a third-party alternative.

    Worked perfectly

    • Written by from Forest Hills

    After reading the other reviews, I thought this was going to be a disaster. I'm using it with a ViewSonic video projector.

    I plugged the adapter into the Mac (15" MBP current model), plugged the projector cable into the adapter, the Mac immediately recognized the projector. I went into the utility to mirror the screens (which was not the default), it knocked the resolution on the projector down to one the projector could handle. This was all displayed in the Monitors dropdown in the toolbar. And everything worked absolutely perfectly.

    Yes, it doesn't look anywhere near as good on the projector as it does on the Mac. What a surprise. And this is the Mac's problem why??

    My only complaint is that $29.95 is a bit expensive, but all Apple cables are absurdly expensive.

    Use with Samsung 2333HD Monitor

    • Written by from Hailey

    I got this adapter and bought a new 2333HD monitor to use with it. I couldn't get it to work with my old monitors cable and was thinking I would need to convert to HDMI as mentioned in other reviews. When I got to the store I saw there was a VGA cable for monitors over 17" in size. I went ahead and tried it and worked great. This product works just make sure you have the right cables to go with it.

    Okay if the screws on the connecting cable are long enough

    • Written by from Nashua

    I tried this recently purchased adapter connecting from the mini Display Port on an Early 2009 Mac mini to a VGA cable connected to a 1600x900 VGA monitor made by HP. The same monitor also has a DVI input, and I could detect no difference in the display between DVI input (before) and the VGA input from the adapter (after). Both were clear and steady. I also connected a mini DVI to single link DVI adapter to the same Mac mini at the same time to get a dual display with the second display being an Apple 23 inch Cinema Display from 2002. (All of this was done with OS/X 10.9.4 Mavericks.) Again, clear and steady displays all around.

    The only deficiency is that the female threads on the adapter are set too far back for the male threads on the VGA cable (also made by HP) to connect. I'm a bit surprised that Apple would let this slip through, so only four stars.
