    Works perfectly!

    • Written by from Belvedere

    I ordered this after finding my old VGA monitor, had no money to buy a new one and needed to move my mac away from the shared TV room so I can actually use it. This adaptor was a live saver and can now use my mac mini after 2 months of it sitting turned on in the shared TV room.

    Thank you Apple for supporting legacy monitors!

    Worked with Samsung instantly

    • Written by from Southwark

    Connected a 2010 MBA (OSX 10.6.8) to an old 2008 Samsung VGA monitor, not feeling hopeful after reading the reviews here. Came on immediately, works perfectly, I had to do absolutely nothing. Brilliant.

    It Works! Samsung owners, read your manual first!!!!!!!

    • Written by from London

    Great product, works perfectly. Those Samsung owners complaining that this product doesn't work on Samsung TV's, well, perhaps you should have read your manuals first. Samsung has restricted certain modern TV's to use DVI, not VGA. So it's a Samsung Support Issue! Don't blame Apple for it not working. Remember folks, VGA only supports picture, you need a separate stereo/phono cable for audio.

    Small, light and works

    So far this adapter has worked 100% of the time, and I use video projectors quite a bit in many different locations.

    Worked Well

    • Written by from Farley Green

    Rarely do I bother to write a review, but I bought this after seeing the negative comments (really needed it), but it worked excellently when I used it. In case I did something different, the VGA output was converted using a splitter into a Composite output which was sent to the projectors (not samsung so I don't know whether this would work). On the whole pretty good.

    Does work with Samsung TV!

    • Written by from Carshalton

    Just thought I'd say in response to other reviewers using Samsung TVs that this adapter works fine. Just make sure you are on mirror settings which is under System Preferences - Display - Arrangement, and you should be fine!

    variability

    • Written by from Nottingham

    This is a very good connector. First one I had (cheaper copy) only worked for 6 months. This one is excellent, connects data projectors (3 to date) and lots of monitors All on my 2 year old MBP. However my sons New MBP does not recognise data projector or monitors immediately if at all. My conclusion is that this has something to do with the new MBP (mountain lion) combo. Same setup on my old MBP mountain lion works fine.
    Would help if apple could at least provide a workaround in the short term.

    It works - always...

    • Written by from HARTFIELD

    I deliver training programmes round the world in all sorts of venues. Projectors provided by hotels, conference centres or client meeting rooms always have a VGA connection (never a Mac port) and, in the last four years, my MacBook has always connected without problems using this adaptor. It does what it says - at £21 you might argue it's expensive for a bit of cable with a connector, but if you're being paid to present stuff on the screen it's not exactly expensive

    Excellent product

    • Written by from Worcestershire

    I have never had a problem with any of these and have used multiple different ones in multiple different places, hooked up to projectors - yes they work fine with it, Samsung TV's - yes they also work with it - i use on every day. Does exactly what it was designed for and looks sleek at the same time

    Works Perfectly- even on Samsung TV!

    • Written by from Arundel

    I was a little worried about buying this after reading the reviews, but figured that having worked as an AV technician, I'd be able to make it work, even if it wasn't as simple as the Mini-DVI on my old PowerBook G4.

    It arrived today. I plugged it into my Samsung TV to test it. It worked- I plugged it in, it worked. I checked mirroring the display still worked fine. It did. (I usually use a split screen, but the mirror is useful at times).

    I can only conclude that the most common problem with this bit of kit is "user error". It sits much more securely in the socket than the mini-DVI did, which frequently fell out, and works without an issue. I look forward to using my Mac at work for my presentations, as I've been stuck with their old Windows PC for months.

    Only downer is the price- but since it stops the problem of dead/damaged VGA ports common on Windows PCs, I can't complain too much. I'd sooner pay £21 to replace the adapter than £££ to replace the port.

    Well done, Apple. This MacBook Pro user is delighted (again!)

    Excellent Adapter

    • Written by from Birmingham

    Bought this adapter in September 2011 to use my Mac during presentations and it has been excellent. Abosultely no problems with it. Quality of the images are great and it doesn't slow down the speed of the presentation, so everything happens in real time, without delay.

    Great bit of kit. Would definately recommend!

    Works perfectly. MacBook to Plasma TV

    • Written by from London

    I wanted this so that I can mirror what's on my MacBook (late 2009 model) onto a Panasonic plasma screen (non HD & 8 years old). The item arrived very quickly through the post and has worked perfectly. I can see mirrored exactly what is on the Mac screen onto the TV screen.

    You can surf the web.
    Watch videos from your MacBook.
    Watch BBC iPlayer and other iplayers.
    View photographs from your MacBook.

    The sound will come from your MacBook, however you can easily attach a speaker to your MacBook via it's 3.5mm jack output.

    You can also have different things displaying at the same time on the two screens (Mac & TV) being controlled from the Mac. Sounds a little confusing at first, becomes clear when you play about with it a little. You may need to adjust the resolution in your Mac's preferences to get the desired size you want on your TV screen.

    I found looking at YouTube videos very useful in helping with the setup.

    Bought this for my MacBook Air 11" and it worked within a few seconds of connecting it all up. Works perfect. Full HD (1920 x 1080 at 60 Hz). Would highly recommend.

    Have purchased 3 for my art department staff. There have been no issues with using external monitors or projectors/smartboards. I have used one to connect my MBP to HD TV which also works fine. Tempting fate?

    Works Great

    This cable gives me dual screens on my MacBook Pro (2009) via an older LCD HP1702 monitor.

    Just plugged everything in and it works great at a good resolution on the HP1702.

    Not a lot more to say really :)

    Works fine with all projectors that have a vga input

    • Written by from København V

    I am a professional in the video industry and I can tell you that I have used a macbook Pro with countless video projectors out there. And this adapter will work just fine. If you have problems with the projector look into the menus of the projector to find the vga input. The problem is most definitely not the adapter (as long as it's not defect of course).
