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 VGA Adapter to connect your Mac to a standard analogue monitor, projector, or LCD that uses a VGA connector or cable. Review the documentation or check with the manufacturer of your monitor to make sure you're choosing the right adapter.

I found that it works fine with some small (20 inch) Samsung monitors that have a VGA input but it doesn't work with any of the data projectors I have in my university department so I can't use my new MacBook Pro (unipart aluminium case) for Powerpoint presentations, which was one of the main reasons for buying the laptop. The problem seems to be that the laptop senses the data projector ( and scales down the laptop display to VGA) but the projector doesn't detect the laptop (and so fails to display the image from the laptop screen). My old MacBookPro (Intel core duo) works fine with all data projectors (using the DVI to VGA adaptor) and I'm now in the silly position of having to use the old laptop for all travel (conferences etc) plus teaching in the university. The wonderful looking new MacBook Pro has to stay at home. Apple needs to issue a firmware fix or a better adaptor as soon as possible.

    Why doesn't Apple make it much clearer that this is the kind of adapter needed to connect from a Thunderbolt port to a VGA cable? Why doesn't Apple make it much clearer that this is the kind of adapter needed to connect from a Thunderbolt port to a VGA cable? All this talk of mini this and that is very confusing - I already ordered VID ADPT MINI-DVI to VGA Adapter-GEN by mistake because of this!

But some t I use this device almost daily in different situations, both from my iMac, my Macbook air and a Mac mini, and it works. But some times (not often) there is something not working in first try, but with a reboot or a reconnect it seems to fix it.

    I bought this for a presentation at church, using a borrowed Casio XJ-A256 projector with a Dell VGA cable.

    Screwed the cable I bought this for a presentation at church, using a borrowed Casio XJ-A256 projector with a Dell VGA cable.

    Screwed the cable to the adaptor, plugged the cable into the projector, turned on the projector, plugged the cable into the Mac (2010 MacBook Pro). Instant recognition. Set display for mirroring, connected the audio socket to my Pure Avanti radio.

    Bingo! All worked first time. Presentation successful. Congregation wowed by a 10 minute film show.

It has been used with projectors and a range of displays, including my Samsung TV, without problems.

    Slightly expensive for what it is.
