Product Information

  • Every Mac with a Mini DisplayPort allows you to connect an external display or projector using an adapter. You can use an external display as your main workspace or to extend your desktop, or you can work in mirrored mode with a projector so you can view what your audience sees.

    Use the Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter to connect an advanced digital monitor, such as the 20- or 23-inch Apple Cinema Display, that includes a DVI connector. Review the documentation or check with the manufacturer of your monitor to make sure you're choosing the right adapter.

    4.0 out of 5 stars

    This is the Mini-DisplayPort to DVI-D single-link adapter.

    DVI-D single-link means that ONLY DIGITAL signals will be output, wi This is the Mini-DisplayPort to DVI-D single-link adapter.

    DVI-D single-link means that ONLY DIGITAL signals will be output, with the maximum supported resolution at 60Hz being 1920x1200 (2.75 megapixels to be exact).

    The adapter easily plugs into the Mini-DisplayPort jack of new aluminum unibody Macbooks and Macbook Pros, and the other end is female DVI-D. Be aware that you cannot physically fit your DVI-I cables into the DVI-D female end. However, since all 24 pins are open, DVI-D dual-link cables can physically fit just as well as DVI-D single-link cables, and can be used to carry the SINGLE-LINK signal to your TV or monitor.

    I was surprised how light-weight this adapter is; a plus for carrying around. I was worried that the relatively heavier cables would pull the plug out from the notebook, but the adapter fits quite snugly in the Macbook Pro. The two screws on the DVI cable I used could not reach their holes in the adapter (female end is not deep enough), however, it was not a concern since the cable still fit tightly into the adapter.

    So, if you don’t have a DIGITAL display larger than 1920x1200, this adapter will be fine. Since HDTV is 1920x1080 this adapter is good enough for me. If you are looking to drive larger digital displays, get the dual-link adapter instead. Also, remember that analog is not supported with this adapter.

  • DVI drops Analog signal, DVI-D only

    We know the Mini DisplayPort can output an analog signal because there's a Mini DisplayPort to VGA adapter. So why does this adapt We know the Mini DisplayPort can output an analog signal because there's a Mini DisplayPort to VGA adapter. So why does this adapter drop the analog signal and go strictly to DVI-D (Digital only) instead of DVI-I (analog & digital)? The old MacBook Pro's had DVI-I. So this adapter is not a replacement to what used to come standard on MacBook Pros! I'm left very frustrated.

You can NOT simply conn This is a DVI-D (single-link) connector - look up DVI on Wikipedia, if you're not sure of the difference. You can NOT simply connect to a DVI-I connector, like Apple's own DVI-VGA adapter, because of the extra pins in DVI-I.

    With the correct cabling, it seems to work just fine.

    Fine product, works well. But note: this adapter will only support monitors up to 1900x1200. For larger monitors (e.g. 27 inch) wi Fine product, works well. But note: this adapter will only support monitors up to 1900x1200. For larger monitors (e.g. 27 inch) with higher resolutions, you'll need to purchase the Dual-link DVI to Mini DisplayPort adapter.

  • It works, but only with the "right" male DVI connecting cable

    It works, but only with the "right" male DVI connecting cable. Unfortunately, the DVI specification was not executed very well, a It works, but only with the "right" male DVI connecting cable. Unfortunately, the DVI specification was not executed very well, and that's why there are FIVE different DVI male connector types. Only ONE of these five will work with Apple's Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter.

    It will NOT work with a male DVI-I single link.
    It will NOT work with a male DVI-I dual link.
    It will NOT work with a male DVI-D dual link.
    It will NOT work with a male DVI-A.

    But it WILL work with a male DVI-D single link.

    See the pretty pictures at the Wikipedia DVI article.

    One star subtracted for lack of a better name and documentation.

Life was around 1 year or less. Usage was only for the occasional presentation so they did not get heavy usage.
