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.

    Output to my 22" Viewsonic is clear and crisp and setup with no effort.

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.

    I had purchased a cheap Mini Displayport to VGA adapter knockoff from eBay trying to save a few dollars but it didn't work at all I had purchased a cheap Mini Displayport to VGA adapter knockoff from eBay trying to save a few dollars but it didn't work at all no matter how much I fiddled with it or which monitor I hooked it up to. Even though I was scared of these reviews, I went into Apple the next day and bought this adapter. I hooked it up when I got home and it worked.

    No fuss. No sweat.

    Sure I had to pay a little more, but it worked the first time I hooked it up. I don't know what all these other people are writing reviews on - perhaps Apple updated the adapter - but it works now so go out and buy it if you need it.

    P.S. I hooked it up to a Sceptre monitor (non-Apple) and a Westinghouse TV... so it does work

    We bought several of these for use in a school, many of them stopped working. They are expensive cables to work for only 1 month

The complaints in other posts I see could easily be addressed and the same thing accomplished if the user were to purchase an Apple TV which is intended for use with you guessed it a TV.
    Works as intended!
