    Works perfectly

    • Written by from Bourgas

    It works perfectly on my iMac with connected Dell 2007WFP via DVI-D.
    I wish only if there was a way to duplicate the menu bar so to be able to have two on the two monitors :)), but that is not in relation to the adapter, so I set 5 stars!

    does not work with apple DVI to RGB converter

    • Written by from Gateshead

    I bought this along with my new macbook, thinking that I could connect my VGA monitors via the old apple DVI to RGB converter that came with my mac mini. It does not work, as the old converter is DVI-I and the new converter is DVI-D. How frustrating! As others have pointed out, why on earth doesn't apple provide a DVI-I connection on this adaptor?

    Horibble!

    • Written by from San Jose

    I have tried the adapter many times and i have even gotten new ones from the store and every time i try it is like my computer does not even recognize the connection to the screen. I have a mini DP to VGA that works fine but the mini DP to DVI does not work at all.

    This Works With My 13.3" Aluminum Macbook

    • Written by from Cicero

    This Mini Display Port works just as it should. I connected my DVI-D Single Link Cable that I brought from Amazon to this Display Port. WARNING it does not provide any sound. You will need an audio cable that connects from your head phone jack to your TV. WARNING you need a DVI-D Single Link Cable Not a DVI-I. Big Difference!

    Does not work

    • Written by from Mountain View

    I bought this for my brand new Samsung Monitor and MacBook Pro.

    The adapter simply does not work in that configuration although my older MacBook Pro with the regular DVI cable does work with the monitor.

    I ended up exchanging it for the VGA adapter. Old technology seems to be the only thing that works for these 1 month old devices.

    Second Display with not turn on

    • Written by from Decatur

    Sometimes when the display that is connected to the Mini DisplayPort to DVI is connected nothing will be displayed. Most of the time this happens when the machine comes out of sleep mode. Unplugging and replugging does not work either. I have rebooted the machine and nothing seems to work. The screen will flicker when the second monitor is connected so it see it but no signal is sent to the monitor.

    so simple, great

    • Written by from New York

    I got this adaptor for my Samsung Sync Master HDTV monitor. Initially they suggested a wrong adaptor, but they exchanged it with the right one. I am new with Apple and still finding my ways with my Macbook. But with this adaptor, it was so simple: just connect it, and that was it! Tech support people are great too.

    Not backwards compatible with DVI -> VGA adapter

    • Written by from Amityville

    If you still have your DVI -> VGA adaptor that came with the previous generation of laptops and where thinking that with purchasing this item you would be able to use that adapter to go from mini display port -> DVI -> VGA and save money instead of having to buy separate Mini D -> DVI and Mini D -> VGA, you thought wrong.

    The product works as specified but I gave it 3 stars for lack of compatibility which when developing a product is something you should consider, also lack of information about this products compatibility and function on the packaging itself when purchased in store.

    bought it to use with my unibody macbook pro + Samsung Syncmaster T240 24" monitor. Works perfectly, although sometimes when switching to it (dvi) from my PS3(hdmi) I get white noise displayed on the screen. Will write another review after using it for a few months to see how it lasts

    This is a great buy, and the Belkin DVI to HDMI cord at $19.99 is UNBEATABLE!! Looks great on my HDTV, love high-res images and videos at 40". One thing, probably user error is no audio through the TV... ??

    Poor Quality/Short Life

    • Written by from Benicia

    As others have noted, the adapter worked fine for about 3 uses on both the imac and the MacBook. Then it started to fail, preventing the installed computer software from loading (or at least I could not see it on the desktop). This seemed to be progressive failure over a couple of months. I am led to believe that this unit is very sensitive to handling and perhaps electronic challenges largely based on what others have written. I had noted that the resolution is lousy so when I get the replacement unit I will follow the suggestions of others to adjust the computer resolution to get a better picture (once I figure out how to do it). Getting a replacement unit of the same design seems to be the only way to achieve the computer to TV connection. At $19 it is not a bad way to go, only if I could get the unit to be more reliable and to last a little longer.

    If you're gonna be condescending, being correct should come first

    "It appears that some people are being mislead into leaving bad reviews, but in the end, User Error is to blame. To clarify, this is a SINGLE Link DVI adapter, intended to be used in conjunction with a SINGLE external monitor. Apple also sells a "Mini DisplayPort to DUAL-LINK DVI" adapter if you need to run, you guessed it, dual monitors! "

    DUAL -LINK refers to running a SINGLE display with greater than 1920x1200 resolution (like a 30" @ 2560x1600) It has nothing to do with the NUMBER of monitors you are running, just the resolution of a single one.

    Confucius is wrong

    • Written by from Fort Worth

    You cannot run dual monitors with this product or the Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter.

    The Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter is meant for 1 external display up to 1920 x 1080.

    The Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter is meant for running 1 external display up to and beyond 1920 x 1080 resolution, such as the Apple 30" monitor which runs at 2560 by 1600 pixels.

    Please do your research before recommending a product. Dual-link does not mean Dual monitors. The Digital formats are available in DVI-D Single-Link and Dual-Link as well as DVI-I Single-Link and Dual-Link format connectors. These DVI cables send information using a digital information format called TMDS (transition minimized differential signaling). Single link cables use one TMDS 165Mhz transmitter, while dual links use two. The dual link DVI pins effectively double the power of transmission and provide an increase of speed and signal quality; i.e. a DVI single link 60-Hz LCD can display a resolution of 1920 x 1200, while a DVI dual link can display a resolution of 2560 x 1600.

    Please purchase the correct adapter for your application.

    • Written by from Fairport

    This is an excellent product that performs quite well if you understand its intended purpose. I use it in conjunction with a 22" HP w2207h LCD monitor via DVI to HDMI cable. I have no complaints. Any limitations are a result of the way Mini DisplayPort has to "emulate" a legacy DVI signal or the monitor itself, not the actual adapter.

    It appears that some people are being mislead into leaving bad reviews, but in the end, User Error is to blame. To clarify, this is a SINGLE Link DVI adapter, intended to be used in conjunction with a SINGLE external monitor. Apple also sells a "Mini DisplayPort to DUAL-LINK DVI" adapter if you need to run, you guessed it, dual monitors!

    That said, if you purchase a SINGLE-link adapter intending to run DUAL monitors, you'll be disappointment and logically assume it's because your MacBook Pro is vastly inferior to your neighbor's Vista laptop, not because you purchased the wrong item!
