    Works wonderfully

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I dont know why there are numerous bad reviews on this product. I have a cintiq 12WX plugged into my Macbook Pro Retina display and it works wonderfully. No dropped connections or anything. Its sturdy and stays in its socket. There aren't any flickering or noise signs on the monitor from the connection. A++ product

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

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    "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.

    HDMI to DVI Video Cable

    • Written by from New York

    To those of you who are having problems with your connections. Try connecting a HDMI to DVI video cable To the DVI adapter. A staff person at the Apple Store had informed me of this connection. There are two parts to connect ( the HDMI to DVI video cable AND the DVI adapter). I used a 20" monitor and so far I'm happy with the outcome. TRUST ME IT WORKS.

    THIS IS A DVI-D!!!

    • Written by from garden grove

    so lets get to the REVIEW of the actual product.

    QUALITY: quality is excellent. i have been using this since the day the new MacBook Pro came out. i connect/disconnect this plug to my macbookpro at least 6 times a day; and so far, the connection fit is still tight as the first day. this product in terms of quality is solid! it doesnt feel cheap and flimsy! it is also very light and weights almost nothing.

    MONITOR: im using a gateway FHD2400 (24" LCD monitor) and it works fine. my monitor supports DVI-I, DVI-D, VGA, HDMI, Svideo and a few more.

    IMPORTANT NOTES: MAKE SURE YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE AND DO YOUR HOMEWORK/RESEARCH before you buy this connector. make sure your monitor supports DVI-D... search on wekipedia if you are not sure...if your monitor doesnt support DVI-D, then DONT BUY IT and give it a bad rating...wait untill apple comes out with one that works, or an updated one...or simple go talk to an apple genius and see if they can give you a legit reason.

    Get this instead of the VGA adapter

    • Written by from Oakland

    I have a late-2010 13" MB Air and was using the mini DisplayPort to VGA adapter with various monitors. It appears that the VGA timings or signal strength on the laptop are marginal at higher resolutions (1600x1200 and above). The effect is that you periodically get zig-zag bursts across the entire screen. This is the analog VGA signal slipping between scanlines.

    I switched to this DVI adapter, which fixes the problem. However, I'm using a KVM switch so moving to DVI was a downgrade because now I have to switch the monitor separately. I know some Macs can output a clean 1200 lines through the KVM switch and VGA because my 2009 Mac Mini and a 2007 Windows notebook works fine with the exact same setup.

    As other reviewers say, if you are using 1920x1200 or higher resolutions, get the dual-link adapter instead of this single DVI adapter. But below that resolution, this one works fine. It does not have the zig-zag display problem that VGA has.

    Summary:

    If you have a single monitor running at 1920x1200 or below, get this DVI adapter. If you want higher resolutions, get the dual-link adapter. If you're doing presentations, you have to use VGA but switch to a lower resolution than 1600x1200 to avoid the zig-zag problem.

    Does its job.

    I'm using it to connect my 13" MBP to a Viewsonic VX2450vm-LED monitor's DVI-D slot. Works well as its supposed to at 1920x1080 resolution.

    Ignore other reviews that gave this product 1 or 2 stars b/c they bought the wrong product.

    • Written by from St. Catharines

    It's an adapter. If you get the right one to do what you want it to do it works perfectly.

    The reason for all those low reviews isn't because of this product. It is because people got the wrong adapter and are blaming Apple for it. If what you need isn't a DVI-D adapter but you bought this DVI-D adapter, guess who is at fault? Here's a hint, it's not Apple.

    Everything I could ask for

    • Written by from chapel hill

    I bought this along with the belkin DVI to HDMI cable and it works great. The picture that I'm capable of getting is fantastic. A word of advice, if your television has HDMI available then this is the way to go. The VGA cable is good, but requires more from the user to make it work. This thing definitely fits the bill.

    Excellent, Works Out fo the Box, A Must Buy

    • Written by from Mumbai

    I recently purchased this Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter from an Apple Reseller, and had lots of bad feeling about it working properly after reading all these Negative Comments on the Review of this Adapter.

    Well, what I found was, it works flawlessly with my Macbook Pro 13" (Mid 2010) and my Samsung 2233SW LCD monitor. After Connecting the DVI Cable from my monitor to the Adapter and then when I connect the MiniDdisplay port connector to my Mac, I instantly got extended desktops on both. 1280x800 on the MacBook LCD and 1920x1080 (extended desktop) on my Samsung 2233SW.

    I never had any problem using it, not even a hint of performance drop.

    So, whoever wants to buy this Adapter, and are confused like I was with all these negative comments, please, go ahead and buy it, its worth and works great.

    With the latest Mac Updates, this cable works without any glitch.

    A superb product. And a highly recommended addition for any macbook.

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    I bought this cable and a DVI to HDMI cable to hook up my macbook pro to a 40" samsung LCD. You will also need a Y audio cable to get the sound. After hook up, close the top enough to make the laptop sleep. Then use an ipod remote to navigate the menu. The product works great.

    Works as intended

    • Written by from Galena

    Recently migrated from a PC to an iMac and reused my 23" ASUS (VGA,DVI,HDMI) display as a secondary display.
    Connectivity and configuration was very easy and I have not encountered any problems to date.
    I am very happy with the purchase and ability to reuse a newer display device I otherwise would have had to get rid of.

    With a simple product like this, it either works (5 stars) or it doesn't (1 star.) It works. I wish Apple would include it with my $2,000 computer though.

    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!

    I've used a couple of these for some time and they do exactly what they aim to do. It's true they don't do DVI-I analog, but I haven't seen a monitor in years that expects that.

    It Just Works

    • Written by from Tucson

    A bit pricey but it works great. I have it hooked up to a dvi to hdmi adapter, to an hdmi cable going into my 32" 1080P toshiba regza. It's like having an imac when I'm at my desk. The picture is not as good as the native screen but that has to do with the native resolution and the pixel size of the tv, either way it works for me and if you're going to use an hdtv as a monitor you will not be disappointed.

    Got the Job Done

    I bought a lcd tv on Black Friday and I thought that it said it had a vga output. However when I got it home it didn't so I was worried on what to do. After much research I found that I could by a mini displayport to dvi and then a dvi to hdmi to hook up to my new tv for an external display. For the sound I had to get a audio cable and connect that to my audio out port on my 13in macbook pro. Everything works great.
