I was looking for a genuine Apple part and checked the Expresspro site which identified both the Apple product number and their picture showed an Apple product. On receipt of the item it was clear that this wasn't the case, the adapter was bulky and the package was similar to Apple's but without the Apple logo.

I complained to Expresspro about mis-selling and received a refund promptly but I note today (nearly 4 weeks later) that they are still advertising this as a genuine Apple product. I would have less of a concern if the item was priced accordingly but they are charging similar to the Apple pricing.

Beware!

Despite the image shown being of an official Apple connector, I received a much chunkier 'clone' of the apple product. I wouldn't mind if they'd said somewhere 'not an apple product' but they're blatantly advertising the Apple brand. Very disappointed as I need this connector for a workshop I'm running in 2 days time...

I was fooled by the image they posted and the price that was identical to the Apple store.
What I got was a look-a-like, cheaply packaged, made in China unbranded cable.
How could they be selling it the same price for a fake, shocking.
This item will be returned.

The only problem I see with this product is the price, I understand it is the official Apple connector which partly explains the price, but still, £21 for what is essentially a 5cm piece of wire with a connector on each end does seem a little steep.

Having said that, the build quality is very good and it has worked as advertised from the minute it was plugged in. I'm currently using it to connect a second screen to my mid-2009 15" Macbook Pro.

Only used this once, but as far as I can see, this is a great piece of kit to attach my new MacBook Pro 15" to an external monitor or projector. It comes in the official Apple packaging, and was pristine in quality. Was even delivered earlier that expected!

I needed a mini displayport to VGA converter to connect my Macbook Pro to my monitor (Mitsubishi Diamond Plus 91 CRT), which only has VGA connectivity. Initially, I bought this Apple adapter as I figured that it would probably work better than non-Apple versions, being of the same brand and presumably designed and tested to work with the Macbook. However, I found that with the Apple version connected, the monitor would flicker and go blank quite often. I had noticed on the internet that this adapter was known to exhibit this problem in some cases and that Apple had issued a firmware update for it to correct the known problem. I tried that update and it reported that my monitor wasn't supported so it would not perform the update. This update may have fixed similar issues for other uses with different monitors, of course.

The other problem with this adapter is that the design prevented the thread of the thumbscrews on my VGA monitor cable from being screwed in to secure it to the adapter. While the cable didn't fall out, it would not have been robust to movement and if I had been using it in a projector environment for example, the cable could have easily come unseated.

So, I sent this back (Amazon refunded without a problem) and bought the Startech version (StarTech Mini DisplayPort to VGA Video Adapter Converter) (also through Amazon) based on the good reviews on this site. It performs 100% flawlessly on the Macbook Pro with my monitor (so far). Furthermore, the design of the Startech version allows my VGA cable thumbscrews to work as designed to hold the VGA cable in place. OK, it's not as pretty as Apple's sleek white version, but it's not ugly, works perfectly and is of a better functional design than the Apple version.

Works exactly as it says and ideal for a projector.

You can have the same image on the computer and projector or different images.

Beautiful, simple, elegant and functional!

Does what it's supposed to - built to last. Excellent build quality. Would highly recommend getting an apple original instead of a cheap fake or non oem part.
