    VGA to Samsung TV

    • Written by from Knoxville

    I have read the review of this product not working with Samsung TVs. I have a Samsung UN46C9000 LED/LCD 3D TV. This adapter works VERY WELL with my TV. It gives a very clear and sharp picture with no hint of pixelation or other video artifacts.

    I highly recommend it!

    Can't understand the bad reviews

    • Written by from Stony Brook

    It worked perfectly for me. Come on, this is just a VGA adaptor, it has no reason not to work properly as people have been reporting. I agree that the initial resolution was bad, but this is a matter of adjusting the resolution and color properties in the System Preferences/Displays. It has a nice wizard to help you.

    Outstanding!

    • Written by from Daytona Beach

    I just bought a new 15" Macbook Pro in July 2009 and I wanted to hook up the monitor from my HP Desktop. After reading all of the reviews on this site I was very skeptical about this product, but I decided to buy it anyway. It worked perfectly. All of the connectors fit snug and flush without effort, and the Macbook Pro detected and turned on the HP monitor in seconds. I didn't have to open system preferences or change any settings. It was truly plug and play.

    Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter review!

    • Written by from swindon

    Hi,

    I have recently purchased this product, and I must say, despite all the bad reviews, it worked perfectly for me. I used it with my LG PG4000 (50 inch) TV and it worked perfectly.

    Anyway, if you want my opinion, I recommend you buy it, if you are thinking about purchasing this product, well worth the £20 you have to pay for it.

    People aren't using common sense.

    • Written by from Eagle

    I have used this product A LOT. It works fantastic, with no problems. Looking at the reviews, however, any normal person would realize that... maybe this product just doesn't work with Samsung products, which is Samsung's fault, as Samsung and LG like to make it so that their products only work exclusively with their own products. As a result, just don't get it if you have a Samsung product, as it obviously doesn't work for them, and you won't have to write a bad review

    Works Great

    • Written by from Weston

    I have no trouble at all with this product except loosing them! I'm buying my third today. I had much more trouble with the previous generation of video out to VGA converters that worked with my old laptop. The mini DVI adapter has worked consistently for video output to a variety of overhead projectors (10+) hundreds of times.

    Apple does charge a lot for all its cables, put in my experience they are more reliable than 3rd party cables.

    Works perfectly from Mac mini to Samsung TV

    • Written by from Hong Kong

    I have just bought a 2011 Mac mini and connected it from the Thunderbolt port to my rather old Samsung LA37R71B TV using this adapter. It works perfectly.

    I have set the Mac mini to 1280 x 768 60Hz.

    It's a much better picture on the TV using this instead of using the straight HDMI to HDMI which I also tried.

    Amazing, So Easy - Use for your TV!

    • Written by from University Park

    Fantastic. Just make sure your TV has the right ports, silly people!! Not one meant just for PCs. I have an old Insignia 42" (4 years old) a 5-yr-old macbook, and a new macbook and this works perfectly for both set ups. Have the macbook screen and sound plugged into the DVI port and its associated sound input port. Do NOT have them plugged into the RGB PC port.

    Excellent Adaptor

    • Written by from Norman

    This is an excellent adaptor! I use it constantly! It's great because I'm in college and have to give lots of presentations that all require an adaptor to connect to the projectors.
    I don't understand the problems other people have because I have never had any trouble at all.

    Works perfect for me.

    • Written by from TINTON FALLS

    I've been using this quite a fair bit now for three months straight and it works perfectly. I have had no issues connecting it to a projector and I can dual-screen just fine with my Acer AL2216W monitor. OSX made adjustments automatically for me; simply plug it in. It's pretty small, which makes it easy to carry around with me.

    Works great with Toshiba Regza

    • Written by from Adrian

    I purchased the Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter to connect my MacBook to our Toshiba Regza 52" flat screen TV to show the iphoto slideshow of my son at his graduation party. A huge success! One lessons learned was that I initially did not unplug our HD cable from our Toshiba and plugged in the PC cable into the TV. It initially did not work and I was so frustrated. I thought it was because it was a Mac vs. PC, however my PC did not work either. I unplugged the HD connection from my PC and my Mac projected perfectly with the adapter. Mac's iphoto slideshow with music is very easy to use and looks very professional. I also purchased the audio adapter to have the music I selected from my iTunes library to sync with the slide show play on our surround sound.

    *Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter .....$30
    *Audio Adapter.................................$30
    *Showing a 236 picture iphoto slide show of your son from ultra sound to high school graduation synced with music at his party with friends and family..............................................PRICELESS!

    Worried about nothing

    • Written by from Bromley

    I needed this cable for my Macbook Pro in a hurry to do a slide show. I read the reviews and with the three and a half star average I became a bit worried about whether or not it would work for me. In the end I decided that I had little choice and went to the Apple store in Regents Street, taking a VGA cable with me. After purchasing it I made sure both ends fitted by using my cable and one of the display laptops. The next day I did my slide show. I really can't see what I was worried about. In the end it was just a cable that did its job. Yes it was a bit expensive, but it did the job and now its there anytime I need it.

    works great

    • Written by from Roselle

    I use this adapter everyday at work - and disconnect it several times a week - and reconnect it. I have not had problems. Some of the issues described I believe are related to changing display settings (mirror display etc) The best use of this cable for everyday workflow is to make use of two screens- the laptop and the external monitor next to each other. It is important with all kinds of cables to avoid too much pressure on the port or the cable.

    Worked great with Panasonic HDTV

    • Written by from Annandale

    I used this device to hook my MacBook (mid-2007 vintage) to my Panasonic Vieja Plasma TV, in order to watch streaming TV (e.g., Netflix). It was incredibly easy - I plugged in the adapter, connected the VGA cable, and the computer automatically did the rest of the work (it auto-adjusted the screen settings to optimize for the TV and mirrored the display to the TV). When I was done, I just pulled out the adapter, and the MacBook display returned to normal. The resolution was great - much better than my previous connection via component cables.

    Works fine but take cure if using gfxCardStatus

    • Written by from Værløse

    If you use gfxCardStatus then you may have to switch away from Intel only mode.

    Don't worry - nothing is broken. If your external display is not being detected while you're using gfxCardStatus, it means that you have a newer i5/i7 model, and you're currently on Intel Only mode. Switch to Discrete Only or Dynamic Switching to use the display. The Intel graphics chipset is incapable of outputting video through the Mini DisplayPort.
