  • Dont try and use with dvi-vga adapter!

    When buying my Macbook I had the bright idea that I would only buy this adapter and then use one of the many dvi to vga adapters t When buying my Macbook I had the bright idea that I would only buy this adapter and then use one of the many dvi to vga adapters that I already own to "adapt" the dvi to vga when I needed it. Unfortunately Apple was one step ahead of me and have removed the holes in this dvi socket that pass through the vga connection. Ergo you are forced to buy yet another overpriced adapter from them in order to use a vga monitor! After buying vga and dvi adapters plus another adapter to connect to a TV you have ended up spending almost 60 euro on top of the already high cost of an apple machine! Most laptops and pc's come with at least 2 of these connections built in! I am very disappointed with Apple's actions in designing this product and hope for better service from them in the future.

  • Why oh Why are the adapter leads so short ? and who designs these things ?

    Apple ! You state in your blurb that the design is the important thing ! Well ok most Apple stuff is well above the norm BUT why d Apple ! You state in your blurb that the design is the important thing ! Well ok most Apple stuff is well above the norm BUT why do you persist in chucking out adapter leads that are far too short and why are they so expensive ? Most have about 6 cms of flex between the two plugs. Any good electrical engineer knows about cable strain relief. This allows the plugs to stay put when the cable moves a little. Thus preventing un-necessary disconnections let alone the strain on the delicate terminations within the connected plugs and sockets. Surely it's not going to break your bank by supplying an little more cable. It's not a lot to request that you do it correctly and try it out before you throw this stuff onto the market.

    OK this is easy for multiple monitors get an external graphics card and a DVI to HDMI cable Download the graphics card software an OK this is easy for multiple monitors get an external graphics card and a DVI to HDMI cable Download the graphics card software and hey presto,

    NOTE!!! if one of the displays will not register in my experience could be either unplug and replug the cables while the computer is on(yes i said it) then the graphics cards will start to talk to each other , they must get stuck or blocked or some other techincal reason, which i dont know but i have 13 inch MBP running 2x 21inch LED monitors with very little latency issues (speed to respond). Apple dont even know their own tech... so dont ask them email me for proof if you dont believe me.
    Equipment list:

    hdmi monitors x2 (or as many as you want)
    Diamond external graphics card, suited to the monitor(list is on their website)
    Displaylink software (free download from their site)
    mini DVI/thinderbolt cable to hdmi
    job done....

    I bought this to connect a Dell Ultrasharp U2412M silver 24" second display to my iMac 24" 2.8 Ghz core 2 duo.
    Works like a charm I bought this to connect a Dell Ultrasharp U2412M silver 24" second display to my iMac 24" 2.8 Ghz core 2 duo.
    Works like a charm and very pleased with the quality of the display output.
    There are a few people complaining about incompatibility issues but as long as you do your research and look at the pic gallery of the pinouts there is no excuse for getting the wrong connector.
