    Worked first time - brilliant!

    • Written by from EXETER

    I just finished getting my brand new Macbook Pro 17" configured and ready to go when I needed to do a presentation at short notice. I went to the local Apple shop bought this device, plugged it in and it worked straight off without any hassle. I re-booted to Bootcamp and ran Windows 7, plugged the device in again and hey-presto it worked perfectly. And my presentation went well!

    Excellent

    • Written by from St Austell

    I have bought the adapter (Mini DisplayPort to VGA) and tried it with my new MacBook Pro and it works beautifully - I only adjust to "mirror" the screen at Display at system preferences. Apple will never let me down while the other PC let me down during my important presentations as their laptop sometimes freezes, etc.

    Well done Apple!

    It does what it says on the packet!

    • Written by from Barnet

    We have used this adapter on interactive white boards, VGA projectors, LCD screens, plasma screens etc. and it has worked every time. It has worked flawlessly through our MacBook Pro 17" i7 (May 2010) when our partner consultant's windows machines have crashed and burned. (no surprise there!)

    It is expensive but worth the money because like most apple products it "just works".

    Works great with projectors

    • Written by from Eastleigh

    I work at a uni and often need to present data on a projector and have never had a single problem with any of them. Works seamlessly every time.

    works fine

    • Written by from Tewkesbury

    I have recently got this as I wanted to use my Macbook Pro for work. I have tried it on two different light projectors with no issues. I decided to do some experimenting with cables after reading a lot of negative feedback just to see what might be happening.

    It turns out that four of the five cables i used with the two projectors worked fine but one was giving me a Dual Screen effect without the benefits.

    My thoughts would be that it's a cable issue rather than the Adapter.


    I have also run with a Samsung monitor in dual screen, again no issues.

    Works Perfectly

    • Written by from Buckingham

    Ok, it didn't connect automatically like i was hoping, but after going into displays and clicking detect displays, it found the projector within 5 seconds. Now i can give high quality presentations direct from my mac without needing to export to a Microsoft Powerpoint. Cheers.

    Worried about nothing

    • Written by from Bromley

    I needed this cable for my Macbook Pro in a hurry to do a slide show. I read the reviews and with the three and a half star average I became a bit worried about whether or not it would work for me. In the end I decided that I had little choice and went to the Apple store in Regents Street, taking a VGA cable with me. After purchasing it I made sure both ends fitted by using my cable and one of the display laptops. The next day I did my slide show. I really can't see what I was worried about. In the end it was just a cable that did its job. Yes it was a bit expensive, but it did the job and now its there anytime I need it.

    Works like an apple product should.

    • Written by from Cannock

    Plug into the display port , attach to VGA (and realise how archaic this is after the ease of display port) and the new display works !
    Used with an LCD projector and a VGA to TV adapter with no problems whatsoever.

    VGA display port adpt.

    • Written by from Pontefract

    This is an excellent little device which works fine in all situations that I have come across with projectors and monitors. Suggestion: why don't Apple make one which is VGA and DVI? That would save carrying two dongles arround.

    Absolutely Fantastic

    • Written by from Grimsby

    Bought this product when purchasing a new iMac for the study in my house. I had also bought a new LG TV to go with it, i decided it might be pretty nice to wall mount the TV above the mac, and using it as an extended desktop when I need to focus on work and the TV shouldn't be on.

    Constant praise should be given to apple for making such a seamless product, I switched the TV onto the VGA input, and connected the minidisplay port to the mac. Instantly I had an extended desktop.

    It even allows me to tell the mac where the second monitor is, above it. This seems to be a problem for many Windows users that you cannot have an extended desktop above the original and dominant screen.

    Overall, just five stars for absolute satisfaction, and just thank you Apple! For making such a superb product, (although the wire is a touch short).

    Despite reviews from others suggesting this does not work with data projectors, it worked perfectly with mine. First time, no hassle, no fuss, no problems.

    Works Perfect

    • Written by from Athy

    Bought this cable when I was buying my MacBook Pro. It works perfectly with my tv. When I connect it to my Mac, the Mac automatically changes to the correct display resolution for my tv. When I disconnect the cable, it automatically changes back to the correct display resolution for my MacBook Pro screen, very simple indeed

    All the negative reviews of this product are from people who bought this cable for the wrong purpose or bought the wrong cable.

    This is the correct lead for connecting a MacBook with a mini display port to a data projector, and it works fine.

    This does work with data projectors

    • Written by from Sheffield

    Don't be put off by previous reviews saying this adapter doesn't work with data projectors. I've tried it with my new MacBook Pro and can confirm it works with at least 3 different brands of data projector cnnected via VGA type (3 rows of 5 pin) connectors. There may have been a problem, presumably now fixed.

    samsung problems

    • Written by from Staines

    Bought this for a Sony monitor which it works perfectly with.

    I thought I'd give it a go on my Samsung TV. With my original cable that I had for my TV it would not work, so I checked the pins in the cable. I noticed there was one missing which was not missing in my Sony cable. When I use the cable with all pins it works perfectly with my Samsung TV.

    Make sure you have a full compliments of pins in your VGA lead is my advise and you are unlikely to have any problems.

    Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter review!

    • Written by from swindon

    Hi,

    I have recently purchased this product, and I must say, despite all the bad reviews, it worked perfectly for me. I used it with my LG PG4000 (50 inch) TV and it worked perfectly.

    Anyway, if you want my opinion, I recommend you buy it, if you are thinking about purchasing this product, well worth the £20 you have to pay for it.

    AMAZING!!

    • Written by from Longfield

    After reading other peoples reviews, I was a bit weary about buying this adapter, but I thought I'd give it a go anyway, turns out it works perfectly, took me a while to figure out how to use my second screen with my MacBook closed, but apart from that, i really like this adapter, it even works at 1920x1080 at 60hz.
