5.0 out of 5 stars Good adapter
Good quality adapter, works fine with my late 2008 macbook pro at 1920x1200 and half the price of the official Apple one.

1.0 out of 5 stars It'll work for a little while…
Perhaps the seller thinks that if the product lasts for 18 months that'll be long enough because no one will think to write a review in that time. Well this isn't really what I expected for the lifetime of a product I only use occasionally. Now to get it to work at all I have to contort the wire into the most bizarre positions and be super careful not to so much as jog...

I used it between a Thunderbolt port on a new MacBook Pro, and the blue VGA cable to a monitor - it works fine.

1.0 out of 5 stars It'll work for a little while…, 12 Nov 2013

This review is from: HDE Mini Displayport To Vga Female Adapter For Mac (Personal Computers)
Perhaps the seller thinks that if the product lasts for 18 months that'll be long enough because no one will think to write a review in that time. Well this isn't really what I expected for the lifetime of a product I only use occasionally. Now to get it to work at all I have to contort the wire into the most bizarre positions and be super careful not to so much as jog the desk, because the connection to the monitor is so dodgy that repeated changes in the number of monitors available will actually crash the computer.

In short, don't bother with these cheap knockoffs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works with Mac Mini '11, 4 May 2012

I was really nervous about buying this product - I'm still quite new to Macs and I'd already had to purchase a VGA-DVI adapted for the old G5 Mac Mini and was gutted at having to purchase yet another adapter!

No reviews really mentioned Mac Minis before, so I wasn't sure what would happen, but I was very, very pleased that this worked instantly in the Thunderport with my Dell VGA screen. So far, I definitely recommend the product...

1.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunately, didn't work., 20 Mar 2013

This review is from: HDE Mini Displayport To Vga Female Adapter For Mac (Personal Computers)
Tested on a Macbook Air 13" (June 2012)

Detects the screen (sort of) but refuses to display anything.

The build quality is 'okay', nothing special, I guess you get what you pay for!

This review is from: HDE Mini Displayport To Vga Female Adapter For Mac (Personal Computers)
As the title suggests, this broke after two uses. and it does not look like the much more professional one in the picture.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not usable, 12 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: HDE Mini Displayport To Vga Female Adapter For Mac (Personal Computers)
I used to have the Apple branded version of this, which was great. Unfortunately I lost it (or somebody in my office stole it!) so I needed to replace (I do a lot of video-editing work, that requires two screens). I've just tried to use the item for the first time, it works fine.... for about 5 seconds at a time. The display is intermittent, not working more than it's working. It hasn't worked for more than 5 seconds at a time!

It's entirely useless like this - I'm requesting a refund or replacement from the seller.

I'm sure some unbranded versions work just fine, the one I received from this seller doesn't.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the trick, 25 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: HDE Mini Displayport To Vga Female Adapter For Mac (Personal Computers)
One of the disadvantages of owning Macs is that sometimes you have to have adaptors such as this for everyday usage. The price for 'brand' products is very high so as its only for occasional use decided to go for a non-branded product. Works perfectly well and does exactly what a 'brand' product would do (have used one from a hotel). There is a feature of using a OHP that causes screen resolution to change but that is down to the interact of Mac Books with projector and not down to the adaptor.
