The product I received was not "by Apple" as the description indicated.
Jeanna Wheeler
Much cheaper on the wallet buying from these guys and the quality looks the same as the product on the Apple store shell.

Fast service and product was said to be used, yet almost looked brand new.

I bought this for my new aluminum MacBook to connect to a flat panel VGA monitor. I read the Amazon reviews about this product, which said that people bought it for their "MacBook," but didn't realize that they were written for the earlier generation MacBooks, which use the mini-DVI. The new aluminum MacBooks now use a different port, the MiniDisplay port, which is much smaller than the mini-DVI slot and looks kinda like a mini-USB port, except with rounded corners on the bottom.

Luckily, I was able to exchange this product with no problems. I contacted the seller, CE Compass, who very professionally just allowed me to exchange it and I only ended up paying $5.95 shipping, which is much better than having to buy a new one and keep an adaptor I couldn't use. I even had already opened the packaging, and they didn't charge me any sort of "restocking" fee for that.

So, if you have the new Aluminum MacBook 13-inch, don't get this one! Get the mini-Display port to VGA adaptor, also available on Amazon. I can't really speak for MacBook Pro. I think the MacBook Pro came with the aluminum body earlier than the MacBook. I think the miniDisplay port is only on the newest generation of MacBook Pro's with the unibody aluminum body. (Note: this review was written in May 2009)

By the way, I do like the mini-Display port to VGA adaptor just fine. It worked immediately and it's just great to be able to have that second monitor there so you can stretch out your workspace and windows across two monitors.

This adaptor will connect a VGA projector or monitor to an intel iMac or MacBook, but the older flat panel iMac and iBook have a port which looks nearly identical, but is actually miini-VGA, and this adaptor will not fit. I also do not think the comment about a higher price at the Apple store is correct, at least the online store.

I had one of these and it began shorting within six months. Still usuable if you fiddle with it and set it just right, but not suitable for serious work where having your presentation go all green, for example, would be a disaster. But there aren't many alternatives. I may use the mini-dvi to dvi adapter with a vga-dvi adapter. Clumsy, but would probably work.

This product works well with connecting any Mac with a mini DVI port to a VGA cable. The only problem I had is that Apple should have either included this WITH the computers at no additional charge. No one should have to pay extra money for a feature (in this case the VGA port) that is normally standard. One of the few changes I would make to the MacBook.

I've had this adapter for about a year now, and I've never experienced a problem with it.

I know many complain that Apple MacBook designs require the user to purchase these extra parts, but I'm not here to comment on this issue- I'm here to explain that this product works well for me.

I bought this adapter when I acquired a ViewSonic 1080p LED screen, and wanted to hook up my 2008 MacBook to it. I called up the Apple store, told them which computer I have, and they recommended this product. I highly recommend asking the Apple store which product to get, as I've seen enough people leaving comments here that they've purchased the wrong adapter. Anyway, Apple recommended this product, and I purchased it. Since then, I've avoided bending the adapter in any unusual way, and it has worked for me ever since, with no problems whatsoever.

I bought the adapter at the Apple Store, which set me back $18 or so. I see that Amazon lists it for a little less, so you're getting a bargain if you buy it here.

I hope this helps. Please comment if you have any questions or concerns.

I use this cable to connect my Macbook to a 22" Viewsonic LCD as a desktop replacement. It has been shorting every other day since i bought it. So every other AM I fiddle with it for about 15 minutes to get it signal the proper resolution to the monitor. Shame on me for putting up with it, but from what I read it's a common quality control problem with this cable - so shame on Apple. If the cable cost more than $20 you would see more bad reviews, but at $19 I figure people just suck it up and buy another one.

I beleive the first picture for this product is the wrong item. The picture provided by MidwestReviewer is correct.

Apple initially provided adapters for Dual-USB iBooks that connected to a "mini-VGA" port. Later iBooks and powerbooks came with the "mini-DVA" ports, which were somewhat different, although similar in size and function, and were sold seperately.

Title says it all. Observed that the monitor had a yellow and then a cyan cast. Wiggling the cable lightly would fix it temporarily, but a loud sneeze would ruin it. I noticed that others have had the same problem. I bought mine thru Amazon from Setec (CEcompass), and they promise an exchange within a year after purchase. Haven't heard yet from them, but I'm hoping for the best. This is the first Apple product I've not rated highly.

Update Aug 26,2009 : CEcompass promptly sent me a replacement cable when I emailed them and told them about the problem. This seems like a reliable source for these cables.
