    Doesn't work properly!

    • Written by from Coimbatore

    I got this for my 15' High End Macbook Pro for connecting to my Samsung 23" monitor. Disappointingly it supports all the resolutions but does not support the native 1920 x 1080 resolution. The display is visible but the screen is moved to the sides leaving a big black bar in left of the screen.

    Works Fine at Times

    • Written by from SAINT AUGUSTINE

    It doesn't fit tightly on the projector cable, but that has not been a problem. The biggest problem is when I've been using the computer and the projector for a while during the school day, my computer screen will just go "white" and the only way to resolve the issue that I've found so far is to re-boot the computer which is a major inconvenience in the middle of a lesson as I have everything I need for the lesson open. It doesn't happen all the time which is why I went with 2 stars instead of 1, but it when it does, it wastes my instructional time which is very valuable in language arts.

    Does its job-with a Samsung

    MacBook Pro to Samsung TV. No problem. Taught my wife how to mirror the display and she can watch all the Netflix streaming movies she wants to, using the TV.

    Awesome Product!

    • Written by from New Lenox

    I recently purchased a 13-inch MacBook Pro and the screen is a good size for when your not at your desk but I decided to go ahead and get the Mini DisplayPort to VGA adapter so I could hook it up to my 20-inch LCD Monitor when I'm at my desk at home. So, I bought it and brought it home and I plugged everything in and it instantly recognized my monitor all I had to do was set the resolution higher so it looked better on the bigger screen! The adapter is nice and compact so you can carry it around with you in your laptop bag if you wanted to. I didn't have any problems with the plug falling out of the socket like some people had been complained about, the plug seems to stay in well enough so as to not fall out but also loose enough to be taken out without any hassle. This is a very nice product and I would recommend it to anyone looking to attach a larger monitor to their MacBook or MacBook Pro!

    Cable "works" but has issues

    • Written by

    This cable does the job but the connector screws to the VGA don't fit properly and I needed to use electrical tape to keep them together.

    Also, I work at a College and we provide these adapters for student loan. It is VERY frustrating to purchase a new $34.00 adapter every 4 months because Apple keeps changing the "standard".

    Works great!

    Just got a Macbook Pro 13" and the adapter works seamlessly with my projector. There were non in the Apple Store by my house and I was told that it didn't exist by a genius there, but I found it online and it works well. :)

    Works perfectly with my VGA monitor and my company's overhead projector. Caution: This is NOT a TV adapter, it is an adapter for a VGA compatible monitor.

    Blinking monitor with my Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter

    • Written by from Denens

    Dear Apple,
    I am fan of your products, but this is getting strangely disappointing.

    I have a 26" Benq monitor, and with my previous MB Pro it was already pretty complicated to synchronize it in full external screen definition. You needed a trick: put the Mac in standby, then open and close fast, etc...

    Now, with my new MB Pro and the Mini Displayport to vga adapter, not only you didn't fix this problem, but I am experiencing constant blinks (every 3-5 minutes).

    I have noticed that there are many other unanswered complaints regarding this matter.

    I am tired of searching for forums throughout the net; is there any way I can get a feedback about this?

    THANKS

    Works w/ HP w2207h!

    • Written by from Lawrence

    I was hesitant to buy this adapter at first because of all the bad reviews. However, I was wanting to project my Late 2008 Macbook's screen on to my HP w2207h monitor. I'm glad I ended up going and purchasing this adapter! Plugged it in and worked without one single glitch. I'd definitely recommend this adapter to someone looking to project their tiny 13" Macbook screen onto a much larger screen.

    Broke after less than a year

    • Written by from Evanston

    First it flickered a lot, and then finally it stopped working entirely. Have tested with multiple monitors, cables, and computers and it is definitely the adapter that is broken.

    One reviewer suggested that if we don't twist it, or leave it plugged in for more than an hour or two at a time, it will last. If that is the design specifications for these adapters, then the design specifications are wrong. Many modern professionals use their laptop as their primary computer. They plug it into their external monitor at the beginning of the workday, use it all day, and then unplug it and bring it home. When my workplace gave me a PC, I didn't even have to fiddle with cords; there was a dock I could trivially snap it into, and pop it out of. I didn't need a special dongle to connect it to a monitor, and I could use a monitor all day without difficulty. It is not unreasonable to expect to have that same kind of functionality in an Apple product, which is marketed as reliable and easy to use. I have to plug and unplug at least four things to dock my Mac. That's not easy to use, and it isn't reliable when one of those plugs keeps on breaking. Apple should be ashamed.

    Burnt Out Within 9 Months

    • Written by from Denver

    I used this thing a lot and it eventually burnt out like a bad fuse. As best I can tell, all brands are equally worthless. I expected it to last as long as my macbook will, but it looks like this is just the beginning, and I'll be replacing these adapters until someone gets it right.

    Thunderbolt!

    • Written by from Malolos

    bought it few weeks ago, I used it for my Keynote presentation. This adapter is simple, elegant and easy-to-use. In my opinion I think the owner is responsible for the care and use of this device. The first time i plugged it in my MacBook Pro Thunderbolt port it was easy, effortless. works fine. Thumbs up APPLE :) I wish that there would be an original Apple Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter.

    VGA Adapter

    The adapter works perfectly when connecting a 13" MacBook Pro to a Dell (or any non-Mac) external monitor. Great size to travel with as well.

    Disappointed.

    • Written by from Brighton

    Previously used a Mini DVI to VGA adaptor for presentations and screening film clips on my Macbook without problems. After upgrading to a Macbook Pro, I bought this adaptor only to find that it delivered dim, washed out images. Black and white films are an indecipherable mess. Tested on multiple systems with the same result. An inferior product, and I'm not sure there's any alternative.

    WORKS GREAT!

    • Written by from Frisco

    I have a Mac 2.0 duo core and needed an extra monitor to run windows 7. Plugged it and works perfect! One problem I ran into was not being able to close the laptop and the external monitor stay on. After trying everything I realize I just needed to hit the space bar on the wireless keyboard and Wallla! Simple solution to what seemed to be a major problem. Only tried to do this because my PC crashed at work and needed something to work quick. When I get the PC back I will be putting it on Craig's List and NEVER again will I buy another Pc! Unfortunatly the rest of the world has not transformed to MAC. When will people realize they spend twice money in the long run buying software and ultimently getting them fixed. With Mac theres never any down time!

    Set up?

    • Written by from Sugar Land

    I rated this 4 stars only for my iMac. On my iMac I have the Mini Display Port to VGA Adapter and it works fine.

    So far I can not seem to make it work for my Macbook Pro. Is there a different way to configure it for the Macbook?

    For the iMac, I went to System Pref, Display, Detect Display and it works. Not so on the Macbook.
