Bought this item. Works wonderful on a MBP 13".
Displays wonderfully for my MBP 15" (MacBookPro9,1). Unfortunately, WiFi does not. There are a few threads you'll find on the Internet (apple forums, too) that conclude the adaptor is causing interference w/ WiFi.
Essentially the moment I plug it in, WiFi starts acting real janky. Connection is intermittent - cutting in and out.
I tried using a VGA adaptor (Apple branded, purchased via Apple Store) and no issue w/ WiFi whatsoever. But it happens time and time again w/ only MBP9,1 for this adaptor!
It's very sad because it's kind of expensive. I'm thinking about returning it, but still find use for it w/ my MBP 13".
Bottom line: gorgeous crisp video w/ great sound transfer that work son earlier models, but not if you bought the MBP9,1.
