    First, when I plugged it into my brand new 2008 Macbook Pro I got a message saying that the USB device drew too much power! I did manage to make it work by plugging it into my monitor's USB hub, but wow...

    Secondly, there is a slight flicker. You can see it clearly with certain kinds of backgrounds and fill patterns. It almost looks like the kind of noise you get with analog, except it's DVI. It's not a severe problem, but *any* flicker with DVI is ridiculous.

    Finally, sometimes it just fails. The screen will go all weird, and you have to reset it. Again, it looks like an analog failure mode except it's not...

    I'm going to wait a bit and then trying exchanging my adaptor at the Apple store. Maybe there are issues with the first-run units.

    Apple really botched this one. Dongles are bad enough, but overpriced broken ones... come on guys...

    I had to plug and unplug my monitor several times before it worked and even now the monitor won't wake up from sleep! Sometimes wh I had to plug and unplug my monitor several times before it worked and even now the monitor won't wake up from sleep! Sometimes when it does come up it flickers and has jaggies. I have to unplug the DVI and plug it back in to get it to stop. I never had any issues at all with this monitor on my old MBP. The size of this thing it HUGE, I can't believe they couldn't make it smaller. Literally about 3x4 inches! Feels like they released a poor product AND they did it LATE!

    Tried to use an inexpensive thunderbolt to DVI adapter to connect my new 27" iMac 5K to an older Apple Cinema display. Results wer Tried to use an inexpensive thunderbolt to DVI adapter to connect my new 27" iMac 5K to an older Apple Cinema display. Results were poor at best with limited resolution. Then I tried the Apple Dual-Link Adapter and the picture was incredible with full 2560 x 1440 resolution and perfect color. No flicker or distortion. I could not be happier! Worth every penny.

  • Adapter does not work with Mac mini and 30" monitor

    Have a 30" Apple Studio monitor that I planned to use with my new Mac Mini

    Before I bought the computer I checked out whether or not I could use it. All specs checked out.

    All the technical specifications and literature says the adapter was specifically built for this application.

    Except it doesn't work.

    The first cable produced an image the first time it was plugged in.

    Went away and never came back.

    Returned the first cable and got a second.

    No image.

    Guess I will return it and live without my 30" monitor that is THEORETICALLY supported (but not in practice).

    Too bad we can't rate it as a 0, because that is what it deserves
