    Works just fine.

    • Written by from Ferguson

    The adapter works fine, but you have to be aware of which adapter you need for your computer. It's extremely frustrating that the adapters keep changing with the new models. It would be helpful if apple included the correct adapter with the computer, especially with the laptop models. It seems to me they used to do that.

    Works perfectly connecting 2009 Mini to Sony Bravia

    • Written by from Calgary

    I bought a 40" 1080p Sony Bravia television in anticipation of the Mac Mini refresh. Due to the delays I hooked up my G5 tower to be our media center in the meantime. It worked pretty well but the new setup is far better - the Sony Bravia works perfectly as a monitor for the new Mini via this connector. It's seamless.

    Works great day-after-day for 2 years

    • Written by from Elgin

    I've been using this adapter day-after-day for 2 years at school. I connect/reconnect it multiple times per day in a dusty environment (the chalkboard is only a couple feet away from my laptop). It's still working great!

    Product works perfectly

    • Written by from College Grove

    I cracked my iMac screen right in the middle, rendering 80% of it useless. Alright, so it was in the back of the car, and a book-bag got thrown on it. It was "just" an accident! But never again...

    Fixing the iMac with a new screen would have cost about $700-$900, which gave me great pause for thought. But I had an old VGA monitor that I had bought years ago, so I got the DVI to VGA Adapter from Apple. IT WORKS PERFECTLY!

    As an added bonus (and I don't know if this is software driven or adapter driven), the desktop size automatically adjusted PERFECTLY for the size of my VGA monitor.

    (1) Apple sure knew what it was doing when it made this adapter.

    (2) Under this number (2), I had written a whole section praising Apple's technical support department, but when I read the "terms and conditions" for posting reviews, I had to delete it because the terms don't allow me to write about the service. Thanks anyway, you guys!

    It's an adaptor

    • Written by from Wynyard

    Yes, CP from Langley, remember that this is essentially an adaptor, so it is meant to adapt what you already have in the form of a VGA/DVI cable. Your VGA/DVI cable will be a standard type for your devices. Apple provide this to help you 'convert' your signal. Why do they do this? Well, have you seen the back of a modern PC or non-Mac laptop...who really wants all those ugly holes in the back of their beautiful computer. Just use the adaptor when you need it - you only wear pyjamas when you need to, they're not underneath your clothes all the time!

    Does what it needs to do

    • Written by from Shediac River

    Well let's face it, this is an adapter cable, so really, what do you need to know... I plug one end into the VGA cable that fits my BenQ projector, and the other end into my Macbook pro, and everything works just fine. I've read a few reviews claiming the cable did not work with Samsung monitors. All I can say is it does work with my Samsung SyncMaster 712N. Like just about every cable ever made, it is more expensive than it should be, but this is not unique to apple - Just try to buy a Monster HDMI cable!

    Very, very good

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I got this with my (now previous generation) MacBook, and I used it with a variety of displays, ranging from a VGA monitor from the 90's to a beautiful 19" flat panel to a HD TV, and every time, it provides a clear and sharp picture. If the DVI version is good, I'll probably get that one too.

    I highly recommend it, but if you just bought one of the new MacBooks, MBPs, or MBAs, be sure to get the one with the Mini Display port. This one won't work with those.

    • Written by from Waitsfield

    This works great does what its suppose to. People need to learn the Difference between Mini-DVI (Macbooks) and MiniVGA (iBooks). There different. So stop saying they sent you the wrong one or say there are two kinds. One kind. Works good!

    Nice product!

    • Written by from Wilkes-Barre

    I recently purchased this product, even though some people have given this a bad review. This product works great for the setup I have. Don't be so harsh with the reviews just because you bought the wrong product. It's not Apple fault. Do some research first to see if this is in fact the product you need before you buy it.

    Not fragile; works awesome!

    • Written by from Boulder

    I bought this nearly two years ago at the same time as my Intel MacBook. I've hooked it up to a monitor or projector nearly every day. I toss it into my bag every day with complete disregard, even though I've lost those silly protective caps a long time ago. I haven't had a single problem with it. It works like a dream, and I would recommend it to every MacBook owner!

    Great Product!

    • Written by from Richardson

    I was just looking over the reviews, and I've seen a lot of people complaining that the cable is not long enough, the VGA side is female, etc. Well, THIS PRODUCT IS AN ADAPTER, NOT A CABLE. The reason why the VGA side is female is because it is supposed to connect to a male-to-male VGA cable (typically a blue cable received with any purchase of an external monitor). So, you plug this cable into your apple computer or laptop, and the male-to-male VGA cable connects to the monitor on one side, and the mini DVI to VGA adapter on the other side. That's what this product is made for.
    Other than that, I have been using my adapter for about 5 months, and it has worked excellently. As any computer accessory, it has to be taken good care of and not thrown around. Thanks Apple!

    Can't People read?

    • Written by from Moncton

    I have bought many things from the apple store, all of them work perfectly and to the exact specifications that they were intended
    The Biggest problem i have with the apple store is the people who order stuff and then complain that it doesn't work because they can't read. If you read the description on what the device your ordering is for then you will get what you want. Its really not that complicated.
    Specifically on this cable, yes it is only for Intel based macs, NOT the older macs, (iBook...etc) and its not meant to be long, I don't know of any devices that have male connection points? It replicates a port on the side of your computer, its not an extension.
    So for all the complainer's, please for the good of all the Online store shoppers, please go back to grade 5 and learn how to read

    Will it work with a tv too?

    • Written by from Demarest

    I bought this and it only goes to a moniter but i think there are some cables out there that will go to this and goes to a tv. I mean I bought this and it was good when I hooked it up to my moniter and the picture is great but I wanted it to connect to my TV even my flat screen downstairs. But on the other hand this item is the best and it is useful

    Apple Mini-DVI to VGA Adapter

    • Written by from Leesburg

    This is an amazing product. I just plugged it in and it worked perfectly. There was no need to setup anything or install any drivers. If you are looking for more space and need to plug in another monitor, I highly recommend it to everyone in the apple family.

    I use the adapter to connect a macbook to multimedia projectors at schools where I do presentations on the landmine and cluster munition issues. I've been using it for close to a year and have not had any problems.
