    Doesn't work at all

    • Written by from Amsterdam

    Didn't work with any of the three vga-screens that I connected to my imac 24". Didn't know that I had to download a software patch first (!!), but after installing that, still no show. Is the adapter likely to be defective or the rediculously small and vulnerable Mini DisplayPort?

    Does NOT work!!! Very disappointed..

    • Written by from Athens

    I bought this adapter for my new Macbook for an important occasion. It arrived on time but does NOT work when I tried to connect it with projectors. I borrowed one before and it worked perfectly. Just don't know why this one does NOT...very frustrated...

    VGA adaptor for MBP 13inch

    • Written by from Hereford

    I bought a MBP In July, to date i have had one visit to store and two calls from support yet the thunderbolt port still fails to synch. As a tutor and student, the one thing I hate is being embarrassed. After borrowing other windows systems for presentations, Apple has allowed this to occur now, as they fail to rectify the fault! Be very aware the cable to attach MBP to VGA often doesn't work. The forums support this! The fault is there, but they fail to advise before purchase and don't help after...

    Stay away from this adapter if at all possible

    • Written by from Deer Park

    This adapter does not work on ANY of the 3 monitors and 2 tv's i tried to use it on. I exchanged the adapter, VGA cable, and then had my macbook pro looked at to see if it was defective; going through the normal troubleshooting flows. My mbp works just fine when i use the MDP to DVI adapter. The only logical explanation is this adapter is defective and is clearly a widespread and known issue. Hopefully apple will release a fix for it sometime soon.

    Back to PowerPoint

    • Written by from leyburn

    Switched to Imac last year & have been really impressed by Apple software. So much so, that I decided I'd like to be able to use Keynote instead of PowerPoint on my clunky old Dell laptop. My shiny new Macbook looked the part....until I tried to connect it to a projector using the VGA adaptor lead. It was immediately obvious that the fit & connection was poor & I was unable to get any signal whatsoever - unsurprising since it kept falling out. After reading the similar experiences of others on here, I have reluctantly decided to return my Macbook & am resigned to using my old Dell Latitude - clunky, slow but at least it's reliable, and above all else that's what I need when giving presentations. Truly amazed that Apple cannot get a grip on this.

    Doesn't work...

    • Written by from Forestville

    Doesn't work, and can't seem to find the latest (May '09) firmware update. My previous MacBook Pro adapters worked great to VGA, S-video, and composite video. With the new PowerBook Pros with Mini DisplayPort there is no longer an analog output from the video card, and this adapter does NOT do the trick. I give up!

    Mini DisplayPort Falls Short

    • Written by from Austin

    I am a first time Mac user and was a little hesitant. After purchasing a MacBook Pro I was very impressed and excited. I was so excited that I wanted to display this on my LG TV. My previous laptop did this with out any effort. So I went out to my local Apple store and picked up this little number. After I plugged it in and did a screen detection I was not able to get any picture. I called Apple for some trouble shooting. They were as lost as I was. I pulled out my e-harmony remote and forced the input setting on the TV to the RGB/PC. Low and behold there was my screen. It displays but not well. Falls short with the resolution settings. TV is 720p and I have to set the resolution to lower than this in order to display the full picture. When I do that iMovie and other applications will display bigger than what is on the screen and wont adjust any lower. I tried everything. The screen also goes blank and readjust frequently. Pretty disappointed. Love the Mac but Apple could of done better than setting the display port for only their products. Classic Apple.

    Therapy for me to READ

    • Written by from Olathe

    After years of debate, last week I approved purchases for our office to move to a MAC platform. Everyone has been raving about the new Mac Books....until we tried to use them in either of the conference rooms where HDTVs are located. Yeah, did not see that comming.

    Just wanted to point out, although it does not solve the MAJOR MAC BOOK ISSUE, it is nice to hear that it's not just our office plagued with this issue. APPLE, fulfill your legacy and fix this....please.

    Freeze Frame

    • Written by from Atlanta

    With Macbook Pro (late 08), external VGA displays are basically unusable unless you close the lid. Otherwise, Video Res will be the same as laptops, and it freezes up if it goes to sleep or if you pull adapter out. Must also plug adapter in and boot, otherwise it freezes up. If you plug it in after booting, forget it.

    Very disappointing, wish Apple would fix this, otherwise the Macbook Pro is very nice...

    Extremely poor

    • Written by from Northwich

    This product is not at the high standard you come to expect from apple.

    I am unable to connect my brand new Macbook to my Samsung TV as it would seem apple did not properly test this product before releasing it.

    Do NOT buy this product if you have a Samsung TV...

    This product worked great for about a month and then it quit working completely!! Apparently Apple has this problem with all of their adaptor cables! So basically don't buy Apple products when it comes to any type of adaptor!

    Absolutely useless

    • Written by from Chambesy

    Simply does not work with a variety of CRT monitors. And updating the firmware did not help for my 19 inch LaCie Electronblue monitor.

    Not to mention that the DVI adaptor, which is supposed to have addressed these issues, is a DVI-D so it carries no analog signal, forcing you to buy a VGA adaptor, not to mention how pricey they are.

    I am very very disappointed with apple lately, and I have been using them for years, but for the past two years i have only had one good product from apple, my unibody MacBook Pro and still have complaints about it that never arose with my old G4 iMac or G5 Mac Pro.

    Problem with Samsung TV

    • Written by from Hong Kong

    I bought this from apple shop and delivered to my home a few days later and found it not working with my 40" Samsung HDTV (while my other notebook with built in vga port worked without problem). Called them up, they sent a courier to pick up the device and refunded to my credit card. Excellent service, Poor Product. Not sure if the new firmware update solved this problem, but until now, I cannot enjoy using macbook on my 40" TV via vga port in the year of 2009~

    Can't Play Itunes because of "High bandwidth digital content protection"

    • Written by

    You can't play itunes videos through it. I wish I could leave a review of less than 1 star. To play HD itunes videos you need a HDCP connection, aka digital. Screen output should be cut and dry. Once the computer outputs analog video, it should have nothing more to do with it and it should be able to play all files through it. Other HD videos play just fine, it is just a problem with itunes being overcomplicated. Don't buy this if you want to have anything to do with itunes videos.

    Moshi Mini Display Port Simply Useless

    • Written by from Spalding

    Bought it and it worked great until i plugged something into a usb port next to it, and that knocked the signal out to the external monitor. After wiggling the adapter it came back on again, but now it doesn't even connect when it's plugged in on its own, this is after maybe 3 months of occasional use. Would never buy another over priced hunk of junk from this company again.
