    Poor

    • Written by from FLEET

    Adapter version 1.03 bought 16/08/2011. Terrible noise interference on starting up. It is necessary to drop resolution to 1920 x 1080. Then back up to 2560 x 1440. Works fine until next reboot. Mac mini -> Dell U2711. Disgusting price for this item, even if it worked correctly.

    Works, but not through an amp

    • Written by from Basingstoke

    I was going to use this adaptor to send the signal through my HDMI equipped AV receiver via my 27" Core i7 iMac. This would not work and sent no signal to the TV at all, despite all my other equipment working fine through the amp, even my PC.

    It does work when connected straight to both my 42" Plasma and my 32" LCD though, so it must be some sort of handshake issue or issue with the power of the cable?

    Not particularly impressed with it overall, especially at the price Apple charges!

    Don'y buy to use in mirror mode!

    • Written by from ALNWICK

    Buyers Beware!! Just bought this to use between a new 2010 13" MacBook Pro and a 2005 20" Cinema Display with a view to using it in 'mirror' mode - ie mirroring what's on the laptop to the larger screen, while leaving the laptop idle. Apparently it only works at the same res as the laptop - 1280 x 800 which is absolute pants on the big screen. Only buy this if you intend to use your second screen as extra real estate!

    Occasional flickering

    • Written by from London

    I'm using this product with a just-bought unibody 17" MacBookPro and a 30" Apple CinemaDisplay, and whilst it generally works ok, every 15-20 minutes it flickers (to black for half a second, then back on).

    It's annoying rather than catastrophic, but I have no other option for connecting my screen to my laptop as far as I know.

    Disappointing.
