    Be Certain.

    • Written by from Rotherham

    I bought this adapter to connect my new 20" HP monitor for extra screen space. Connected it up, plugged it in and everything worked perfectly, no drivers no nothing.
    However I will say this-
    Be CERTAIN before you buy this, make sure that what you are looking for is exactly what this adapter does. I personally made sure that my monitor was DVI-D and not DVI-A and I made sure that this adapter was suited to DVI-D and the size of my monitor. The reviews here are very helpful in making an informed decision.
    I personally picked it up in store and consulted with the staff to further clarify the devices capabilities.

    Overall not a bad product, just a very specific one. Look up past experiences with your monitor model and size and mac before you take the plunge. Four stars, -1 star however for the unreasonable price. Minidisplay seems to be just an annoyance and this is the kind of accessory that should be included in the price of a mac.

    Works Perfectly

    After all the hub-bub about where it works or not or whether it is DVI-I or DVI-D, all I can say is look at the picture. In fairness to Apple, you can zoom right into the connector to see if it will connect to your monitor. I agree is might be clearer if it stated that it was DVI-D but this is easy enough to check. I think most of the confusion has come from the fact that there are two types of DVI cable. This is not actually Apple's fault. For the record DVI-I carries Digital AND Analogue (over the extra 4 pins) and DVI-D is just Digital.
    All I can say about it on the down side is I think it should be priced at £15 along with all the other Mini adaptors. Have connected up to various 24" panels in the office and it works great off my new MiniMac.
