    good quality

    • Written by from Kingston

    I don't know what some people do with their adapter cables , I've had mine for years and it's still works just fine , it is a good quality cable and connector and should last the lifetime of your Mac or definitely longer

    Bought this to use in my classroom along side my 13 inch MacBook. Works great hooked up to my projector or my monitor. I knew exactly what it could and couldn't do before I bought it. If you're looking to transfer picture, this is what you need but don't complain when it doesn't transfer sound, that's NOT what it's made for. MADE FOR VISUAL TRANSFER ONLY!
    Hope this helps. :)

    Works well, does what it describes.

    Not the cheapest adapter in the world, but seems to work fine for me. Had no problems hooking up to my Samsung monitor. No issues whatsoever.

    great with Dell Monitor

    • Written by from Aptos

    I like this adapter. It so far has given me the best resolution on a Dell U3011 30-inch monitor of 2048 x 1280 @ 60 Hz. (I have a mid-2008 MacBookPro laptop)

    I'm still looking for an adapter to get the max resolution out of that monitor.

    Great price, great product.

    There is only one mini-DVI adapter

    • Written by from Springfield

    Regarding the confusion about iBook compatibility, there is in fact only one type of mini-DVI port. The port that iBooks use is called mini-VGA, and there is a separate adapter that is labeled as such. There is no adapter labeled as mini-DVI that would actually fit an iBook.

    It works great

    • Written by from Sacramento

    I have had no issues with it and it works great. I absolutely love it and it works with our iMac, MacBook and my mom's PowerBook.

    Please keep in mind that the new MacBooks will not work with this device.

    works just like i wanted it to

    • Written by from longview

    I have a "white Macbook" and this cable works great with my 32" Maganavox HDTV in my Cedar Creek fifth wheel. I can download my camping pictures at the lake and edit them right there on my HDTV. Watch home movies, view slideshows, etc. When I get sleepy I just recline my leather recliner and take a nap!

    Works like a charm!

    • Written by from White Plains

    Based on the reviews, I really hesitated to not just get the cable, but to get a 30" monitor at all. But I have a feeling that many of the users who are unhappy with this adapter are not using the correct dual DVI cable to connect their monitors.

    I am using this adapter with a brand new HP 3065 30" screen with my new 17" MacBook Pro. Everything works as advertised, and without a hitch. What a thrill to have that much screen real estate; and how much easier it is to work with iMovie, Photoshop and Lightroom. No flicker, no blinkies; and 2 beautiful screens at once. Sure, it's all expensive; but you don't use Apple products if you're a Wal Mart shopper...

    Twice the Space!

    • Written by from APO

    There was almost no effort to this setup. I plugged the adapter into the back of my old iMac, then plugged into the back of my Dell monitor (from an old PC that had long since broken down-surprise, surprise). The iMac automatically detected the type of monitor that I had plugged in and it was ready. Twice the desktop space in about 3 minutes. It looks great and is very helpful when editing videos, music, etc. it makes multitasking much easier.

    Overall Great Product.

    • Written by from Oakdale

    I got this product for my Macbook. I am gonna dual screen my Macbook to my 32" Samsung Tv. I suggest that everyone make sure what model your Mac is before purchasing any Mini Dvi Adapter. Because they are different Like with this one.

    Works with Mac mini (Early 2009) too

    • Written by from Houston

    This adapter works with the Mac mini (Early 2009), notwithstanding a claim to the contrary by another reviewer. My Pioneer plasma TV has a "PC" wide XGA (analog) port for connecting to a Mac or other personal computer. The Mac mini automatically recognized the available resolutions and color profile. The picture is beautiful. Couldn't ask for more.

    Works just fine

    • Written by from omaha

    Mini DVI to VGA Adapter works just fine with VGA connections. Apple only dropped connections to analog...ANALOG IS DEAD! AOK with digital. So it will work with any digital VGA monitor/display. If you are connecting to analog, then you will have problems.

    Coming from PC laptops - I LIKE IT!

    • Written by from Westbrook

    I've had mine in service for about 2.5 years; it hooks my MacBook up to an old Envision 17" inch monitor and works flawlessly.

    I once had a problem when running dual monitors (laptop and 17 monitor at very different resolutions) where I unhooked the monitor from the laptop while it was active. Then tried to watch a movie on the laptop and it got confused at which resolution to run. The people at the Apple Store (thanks you guys) and online help instructed me as to the proper procedure to unhook the monitor and the problem was resolved. They also showed me another way to fix it when it is unplugged while the laptop is active.

    If, I remember correctly:

    1. put the laptop to sleep then unplug the monitor.
    2. go to System Preferences > displays > gather monitors also solved the issue.

    I like it because the adapter is small and very portable. Specifically, I like the mini DVI on the laptop because it is also small and helps therefore in keeping all the connections on the left side of the MacBook.

    I'm not sure what the actual useful differences are between VGA and DVI, but I am looking forward to someday trying DVI to DVI as VGA has been around a long time.

    Works Fantastic!

    • Written by from Goderich

    Just got it in a few minutes ago, and it works perfectly! The only problem with the negative reviews is that they order the wrong adapter! Do what I did, and really research it!

    The delivery was faster then I ever expected. All in all, 5 stars.

    AMAZING.... but be carfull

    • Written by from ETOBICOKE

    So when I purchased this cord i had no doubt that I would be impressed, and I was! it was amazing it worked great and improved my computer use so much! But however I noticed one thing that could be easily fixed, I found that the mini DVI side of the cord easily fell out or got disconnected, this resulted in the displays having to reset, which does not take long but can be a bother. So make sure that your cord is in there nice and tightly and not in a awkward position.

    Other that than it was a amazing product!

    No problems - works great!

    • Written by from MARSEILLES

    I am the Video specialist for our church. We just bought a new iMac with which needed the Mini connection. We have had the set up for over a month and have had absolutely no problems. Knowing we needed this type of connection was a different situation. The computer was so new that even the sales rep didn't know we needed the newer connection.
