Product Information

  • Every Mac with a Mini DisplayPort allows you to connect an external display or projector using an adapter. You can use an external display as your main workspace or to extend your desktop, or you can work in mirrored mode with a projector so you can view what your audience sees.

    Use the Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter to connect your Mac to a standard analog monitor, projector, or LCD that uses a VGA connector or cable. Review the documentation or check with the manufacturer of your monitor to make sure you're choosing the right adapter.

    I'm very disappointed with this. I bought a new MacBook last week and got the VGA adapter so I could use it with my TV as I did my I'm very disappointed with this. I bought a new MacBook last week and got the VGA adapter so I could use it with my TV as I did my old PowerBook G4 (via the Mini-DVI to VGA adapter). The new adapter worked fine when I connected it to an overhead projector, but it doesn't seem to send a readable signal to my Samsung LN40A650 television.

    I tried booting in to Windows via Boot Camp and got the same result.

    I guess I'll have to try the DVI adapter with a converter from DVI to HDMI to use this with my TV. A Mini DisplayPort to HDMI (or even regular DisplayPort, which can be directly converted without using audio) would be ideal, but there doesn't seem to be any sign of that.

Seems to be of the same quality as the mini DVI to VGA adapter which I used everyday for a year with out incident on my old macbook. Should be priced in the 14.99 - 19.99 range.

    I can not get this thing to output to my Samsung LN-4042H 40 inch LCD. The old miniDVI to VGA worked no problem with my old MacBoo I can not get this thing to output to my Samsung LN-4042H 40 inch LCD. The old miniDVI to VGA worked no problem with my old MacBook. I have checked and it is not a TV problem, so certainly something hardware or driver related. Also $29.99 for a video dongle seems steep to me.

    The new Mac Book Pro Retina model has no DVI connection, as my older Mac Book Pro did. Needed to connect to an old Epson VGA proje The new Mac Book Pro Retina model has no DVI connection, as my older Mac Book Pro did. Needed to connect to an old Epson VGA projector. Made an appointment for the Genius Bar at my local Apple Store. They showed me how to connect to any VGA device by using the Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter. It was not apparent to me at first, that the Mini Display plug fit in the Lightning connector on the computer, but it does. The computer was already set up (default) to mirror the display, The Apple Store brought out a VGA display and it immediately mirrored the computer when plugged in. At home the Epson recognized the signal immediately and projected it on screen. It's a winner! This is all you need. Of course you still require your male to male VGA cable which is Blue to Blue and Apple considered this and made their VGA end on this adapter, Blue also.

    You should already know this, but to repeat; VGA is Video Signal only. There is no audio signal in VGA.

    On with the show!

    I love this adapter. The first time I used it required a few adjustments on display settings and usually each time I need to use I love this adapter. The first time I used it required a few adjustments on display settings and usually each time I need to use the sound output selector settings. It's great for hotels when on vacation
