    Negative Samsung reviews? Worked perfectly for me on receipt, no problem.

    • Written by from Daly City

    I don't quite understand all the negative Samsung reviews: I held off purchasing this
    adapter for a month because of them: I finally ignored other people's Samsung difficulties and I took a "risk" and bought it and received it this morning.

    I just hooked it up from my 17" MacBook Pro/3.06/2x4GB/500/SD/AG and plugged it in via VGA cable to my Samsung 50" 1080P Plasma (PN50B550T2F) and mirrored with absolutely no difficulty. I'm sorry I hesitated buying it now. It was stunning to see Safari speed through pages using my AT&T U-Verse MaxPlus internet account (up to 18Mbps downstream but usually clocks around 14 to 16 Mbps) on that large of a screen.

    Pay Attention

    • Written by from Mesa

    This adapter worked for me. These bad reviews on here are just from customers NOT paying attention to what works. Do your Homework, and you will see that it works out! But this adapter was exactly what I needed, and I got it 2 days after ordering it, which was great, and able to get my Presentation set up a day before!

    Works perfectly

    Works fine on my NEC NP50 DLP projector. Maybe there is some sync signal problem on some monitors - I don't know. It works fine for me.

    Good product

    • Written by from Wake Forest

    I use this adaptor with my new MacBook to connect an 15 inch Acer LCD monitor, for those times when I need to refer to info in one app. while working in another one. As soon as I plugged it in, the display settings popped up on their respective displays and all I had to do was set the position and resolution for the Acer monitor. Works perfectly, now I can simply drag windows from one screen to the other.

    Firmware update fixed it

    • Written by from NEW YORK

    I was connecting a Mac Mini up to a 40" Samsung 720p LCD. At first it would not display anything, but then (using a different monitor) I updated the firmware of the adapter (who knew it would have firmware?!) and it worked fine.

    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.

    Does exactly what it's supposed to do.

    • Written by from Clearwater

    I got this a few years ago to connect my [then] new MBP to projectors & TVs. It has never failed on a variety of such devices and has even come through when another person's aftermarket version failed.

    Works great with my SAMSUNG

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    Bought a new Samsung and works get with it. Have a lot of movies on my iTunes and finally get to watch them on a big screen instead of my MacBook Pro. Just make sure you have an audio cable so that your tv plays the audio. So works get if you want to watch you movies from 13" to 55"

    Works great!

    • Written by from Bellerose

    Bought it from the Apple store on Fifth Ave. Went in, asked for help with finding the product. The guy found it in a second and then I found out the line was huge (at least 30 mins waiting). He took out the Apple Store iPhone and swiped my credit card on it. It was awesome. Didn't have to wait on the big line, and the receipt was emailed to me on the spot.

    I've used this a couple of times at college with the built in projectors and it works fine. I also connect a spare computer monitor and that works great too.

    Never a problem

    • Written by from Alhambra

    I use this adapter almost every day for a digital projector in my classroom, and I use it at home for a monitor to watch movies and I have NEVER had a problem. I have had it for almost two years now.

    The screws fit right in and I am glad the port is smaller because I think that big VGA port is ugly. Also how often are you going to have something in the video port, both audio ports and both USB ports?

    Like all Apple products, it is sleek, easy to use right out of the box, and doesn't break.

    Almost Perfect

    • Written by from Oak Lawn

    Overall, its a good product. It's aesthetically pleasing, an fits right into the mini display port. The actual connections and color is also very good. However, when attaching the VGA Cable, it does not always stay attached, even with the screws. Most of the time it fits, but sometimes, when plugged into certain cables, and Smart Boards, it wont stay connected and I have to put a pice of tape around it, then it is fine and doesn't give me any trouble. Its a very good cord, and worth the money. Don't let one person's bad review not make you buy this, or a Mac. They work perfectly and come in handy.

    Works Perfectly

    • Written by from Buckingham

    Ok, it didn't connect automatically like i was hoping, but after going into displays and clicking detect displays, it found the projector within 5 seconds. Now i can give high quality presentations direct from my mac without needing to export to a Microsoft Powerpoint. Cheers.

    Absolutely Fantastic

    • Written by from Grimsby

    Bought this product when purchasing a new iMac for the study in my house. I had also bought a new LG TV to go with it, i decided it might be pretty nice to wall mount the TV above the mac, and using it as an extended desktop when I need to focus on work and the TV shouldn't be on.

    Constant praise should be given to apple for making such a seamless product, I switched the TV onto the VGA input, and connected the minidisplay port to the mac. Instantly I had an extended desktop.

    It even allows me to tell the mac where the second monitor is, above it. This seems to be a problem for many Windows users that you cannot have an extended desktop above the original and dominant screen.

    Overall, just five stars for absolute satisfaction, and just thank you Apple! For making such a superb product, (although the wire is a touch short).

    Seamless

    Despite reviews from others suggesting this does not work with data projectors, it worked perfectly with mine. First time, no hassle, no fuss, no problems.

    Excellent bit of kit

    • Written by from Peterborough

    This works perfectly with a Panasonic TX-32LZD81 freesat LCD TV. Great for catching up TV programs or just large screen surfing. Don't make the mistake of getting the larger Display port connection, this fits the old Macbook and some desktops.

    Very Good

    • Written by from Yokohama City

    If you have problems with your adapter, try disconnecting it from your MacBook Air while maintaining connection from the adapter to your projector or any display with VGA port.
    Alternatively, check it out under the finder, which should be one of the icons on your dock.

    Excellent Adapter

    • Written by from Birmingham

    Bought this adapter in September 2011 to use my Mac during presentations and it has been excellent. Abosultely no problems with it. Quality of the images are great and it doesn't slow down the speed of the presentation, so everything happens in real time, without delay.

    Great bit of kit. Would definately recommend!

    I've had this adapter for over a year. There is no issues using it with my Sony 15" 4:3 Monitor. Resolution is great, even though it is Standard Definition.
