    Testing it!

    • Written by from Westbrook

    I am using the adapter with a MBP (MacBook Pro) mid 2013; it is connected to the Lightning Port which doubles as a Mini Display Port.

    So far, I've used it for about a week with two monitors a 24" Dell S2409W (1920 x 1080 native) and a 20" HP W2072a (1600 x 900 native) both flat panels. It has been used in both the "Extended" and "Clamshell" modes, so the external monitor is either the second extended monitor or used alone as the primary monitor in clamshell.

    The adapter feels slightly warm to the touch, but it is certainly not hot. It fits snugly into the Lightning/Mini Display Port and feels secure while the other end holds the VGA cord well enough.

    No problems thus far (again only one week and two flat panel monitors). Perhaps, I can comment or append this after a longer period of time has passed.

    Although, the other reviews of premature failure have me a bit curious and scared. I have an older version (Mini DVI to VGA) that I have used since 2007 to now (Feb 2013) on my old white MacBook and it has always been reliable.

    Hopefully, this new adapter proves as reliable as the old.

    Audio, for me, is handled by plugging my external speakers into the microphone jack, and that works well too.

    For now, the Mini Display Port to VGA adapter gets 5 stars as it works well in my, as yet, limited experience.

    Does work with Samsung TV!

    • Written by from Carshalton

    Just thought I'd say in response to other reviewers using Samsung TVs that this adapter works fine. Just make sure you are on mirror settings which is under System Preferences - Display - Arrangement, and you should be fine!

    The price seems rather steep, unfortunately there is no other cheaper alternative.
    Works effortlessly and there have not been any problems so far at all!

    Works Flawlessly

    • Written by from Edison

    I use this cable with a late-2008 MacBook aluminum and NEC 1770GX. I watch movies/videos on the NEC while surfing the internet on my MacBook. It works perfectly. Set up was negligible -- just a minute to plug in the cable. Refreshingly simple and highly recommended.

    Product Works Perfectly

    • Written by from CHICAGO

    This product works perfectly, exactly as it's supposed to. Now, I've only used this on my external monitors of various sizes, no TVs, but it works great.

    So like some other reviewers, I'm not sure why this thing doesn't have a higher rating.

    AMAZING!!

    • Written by from Longfield

    After reading other peoples reviews, I was a bit weary about buying this adapter, but I thought I'd give it a go anyway, turns out it works perfectly, took me a while to figure out how to use my second screen with my MacBook closed, but apart from that, i really like this adapter, it even works at 1920x1080 at 60hz.

    Works for me!

    • Written by from Toronto

    This cable does what it says it's for. I was slightly hesitant to purchase it after reading these reviews but I bought it, and tried it out and worked like a charm!

    I have the 13" aluminum body MacBook and I used it on:
    - LG 37" LCD TV (Model: 37LG50) - awesome!!
    - screen projector (don't know make/model) - worked flawlessly!

    I guess it's hit or miss, depending on what you connect it to.

    It Works! Samsung owners, read your manual first!!!!!!!

    • Written by from London

    Great product, works perfectly. Those Samsung owners complaining that this product doesn't work on Samsung TV's, well, perhaps you should have read your manuals first. Samsung has restricted certain modern TV's to use DVI, not VGA. So it's a Samsung Support Issue! Don't blame Apple for it not working. Remember folks, VGA only supports picture, you need a separate stereo/phono cable for audio.

    AWESOME !!

    • Written by from Quilon, Kerala

    Forget all the other bad reviews because apple has made ( i think ) a new version of it
    ( also cas it has a box as the cover unlike the earlier ones). IT has two mode... mirror and the other one is that only presentations will be seen on screen....nothing else.
    Well it works perfectly with my LG and beautiful RESOLUTION! ( didn't expect that! ).

    Analog Video versus Digital Video

    • Written by from Centreville

    I purchased this to connect my imac 2009 2.66 GHz intel core 2 duo to an external HD monitor. It was to replace Moshi's Mini Displayport to HDMI adaptor, which was causing problems to my system (rattling noises, computer overdrive, etc)

    imac 2009 2.66 GHz intel core 2 duo and early imacs without HDMI ports are technically pushing out Analog Video. To use Mini Displayport to HDMI adaptors is an unnatural process and compromises your computer because it is up-converting analog video into digital video when it connects to your external monitor. If you notice, Apple does not produce a Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adaptor. They dont want to be accountable for something that doesnt really work but kinda does, like Mini DisplayPort to HDMI.

    Mini DisplayPort to VGA is your best bet for imacs without hdmi out ports.

    Works perfectly. MacBook to Plasma TV

    • Written by from London

    I wanted this so that I can mirror what's on my MacBook (late 2009 model) onto a Panasonic plasma screen (non HD & 8 years old). The item arrived very quickly through the post and has worked perfectly. I can see mirrored exactly what is on the Mac screen onto the TV screen.

    You can surf the web.
    Watch videos from your MacBook.
    Watch BBC iPlayer and other iplayers.
    View photographs from your MacBook.

    The sound will come from your MacBook, however you can easily attach a speaker to your MacBook via it's 3.5mm jack output.

    You can also have different things displaying at the same time on the two screens (Mac & TV) being controlled from the Mac. Sounds a little confusing at first, becomes clear when you play about with it a little. You may need to adjust the resolution in your Mac's preferences to get the desired size you want on your TV screen.

    I found looking at YouTube videos very useful in helping with the setup.

    I've used my adapter to connect my MacBook Pro to a range of monitors, televisions and projectors (made by Dell, Sharp, Sanyo, Toshiba, Panasonic and others) and have had nothing but total success on every occasion.

    There is nothing wrong with this product!

    • Written by from Moorestown

    Like other reviewers, I do not see why this is not a highly rated product. It is simply a VGA adapter. Nothing more, nothing less.

    variability

    • Written by from Nottingham

    This is a very good connector. First one I had (cheaper copy) only worked for 6 months. This one is excellent, connects data projectors (3 to date) and lots of monitors All on my 2 year old MBP. However my sons New MBP does not recognise data projector or monitors immediately if at all. My conclusion is that this has something to do with the new MBP (mountain lion) combo. Same setup on my old MBP mountain lion works fine.
    Would help if apple could at least provide a workaround in the short term.

    Works perfectly straight out of the box

    • Written by from Lytham St Annes

    i don't understand all the negative comments, I am a new Mac user so still learning the OS differences but the VGA adapter gave me no trouble at all just plugged it in selected the VGA source input on my 42" Nikai flat screen LCD TV to find my laptop view mirrored on the TV.

    I did try different resolutions from my MAC System preferences - Hardware - Displays. I found that the only resolutions that worked were 60 Hz frequencies.

    One final note although I selected different resolutions to get a full screen picture I found that once I closed the laptop clamshell screen the TV automatically became fullscreen as the main view with the laptop screen automatically shutting down. I could then drive my laptop, view videos from iTunes by using the Trackpad. Very pleased with the VGA Adapter.

    I have recently bought Infocus IN102 DLP projector and connected my macbook 2010 model with it through this cable and believe me it worked as a charm with nice crisp and clear image of about 100 inches. I would stongly recommend this product though bit costly but its worth the money you spend.
