    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.

I also have connection problems, like many others, where moving it around will make it disconnect.

    There are quite a few negative reviews but I gotta say mine works perfectly. Maybe they fixed the problem.

    I haven't had any charging issues as others seem to have had, but darn it the thing falls out of the computer too easily. Because I haven't had any charging issues as others seem to have had, but darn it the thing falls out of the computer too easily. Because it sticks out from the computer an extra 1.0 cm, the torque just caused by the weight of the rest of the cable is often enough to pull it away from the computer... or at best, knock it loose so that it looks like you have tried to insert it diagonally (which is to say, it's still barely attached to your computer magnetically, but is not actually attached to the power inlet itself). So decide for yourself: if you use your laptop on your lap, just know that you're paying $70 less than you would for a whole new charger, but it comes at the inconvenience of having to re-plug it back in all the time. If you use your laptop as a desktop machine, or if you are purchasing this for anything else (like a monitor or a desktop machine), you'll be fine and you can consider this a 5-star review.
