    First, when I plugged it into my brand new 2008 Macbook Pro I got a message saying that the USB device drew too much power! I did manage to make it work by plugging it into my monitor's USB hub, but wow...

    Secondly, there is a slight flicker. You can see it clearly with certain kinds of backgrounds and fill patterns. It almost looks like the kind of noise you get with analog, except it's DVI. It's not a severe problem, but *any* flicker with DVI is ridiculous.

    Finally, sometimes it just fails. The screen will go all weird, and you have to reset it. Again, it looks like an analog failure mode except it's not...

    I'm going to wait a bit and then trying exchanging my adaptor at the Apple store. Maybe there are issues with the first-run units.

    Apple really botched this one. Dongles are bad enough, but overpriced broken ones... come on guys...

    I had to plug and unplug my monitor several times before it worked and even now the monitor won't wake up from sleep! Sometimes wh I had to plug and unplug my monitor several times before it worked and even now the monitor won't wake up from sleep! Sometimes when it does come up it flickers and has jaggies. I have to unplug the DVI and plug it back in to get it to stop. I never had any issues at all with this monitor on my old MBP. The size of this thing it HUGE, I can't believe they couldn't make it smaller. Literally about 3x4 inches! Feels like they released a poor product AND they did it LATE!

    I've been using this for a year+ to connect my MacBook Air to a larger monitor and it's worked 100% of the time.

    3.0 out of 5 stars

    Please be aware that the DVI female connector is DVI-D, lacking the four little holes that would make it a DVI-I cable.

  • Add third monitor to MacPro 2013

    I have 2 dvi monitors and 1 HDMI monitor and a MacPro2013.
    The only way to get it to turn on all three monitors is to buy one of I have 2 dvi monitors and 1 HDMI monitor and a MacPro2013.
    The only way to get it to turn on all three monitors is to buy one of these. Add it to one of your DVI monitors and then all three will work. Computer does not have enough power to run all three.
