    The converter works as advertised. It lets me use an existing power supply with my new MacBook Pro Retina.

    The converter's magnet attaches to the power supply's old MagSafe connector very effectively. The magnetic connection between the converter and the MacBook isn't as strong. The problem is that the old MagSafe adapter and the converter is now long enough that leverage makes it very easy to disconnect from the MacBook. This is very annoying, especially if you hold the MacBook in your lap while using it.

Small and unobtrusive, works great with the Thunderbolt display. I'd rather be able to swap cords, but this is better than replacing the monitor!

    As for the other reviewer complaining about having to replace his existing adaptors - that doesn't make sense. His existing adaptors work with his older machines, and with this they now work with his new machine. The only potential problem is if he is planning on a new location with only the new power adaptor... Inconvenient, sure - but hardly forced to buy a bunch of new stuff to replace his existing.

    Unfortunately I'll have to buy a 3rd one soon, because they are complete pieces of garbage. The 1st Converter stopped working after a week and may work 1% of the time if properly nudged around. I've met several people with the same but less severe issue. The 2nd Converter works about half of the time, but again, needs nudging.

    The adapter worked as expected right after purchased -- no problems with it. However, over the course of a few months (~5 months), The adapter worked as expected right after purchased -- no problems with it. However, over the course of a few months (~5 months), the adapter has mostly stopped being reliable. It is still mostly able to provide power, but my macbook will say "not charging". I have jiggle, remove the adapter and plug it in and out for quite some time before if I'm lucky, the charger will actually charge the battery. Not really worth the money - except that 8 of these would be roughly the same price as a new charger.
