Lemon Crapshoot... I lost.
on November 6, 2013
This may just be a case of a random "lemon" but this adapter had difficulty working properly right out of the packaging. I have a Macbook Pro and have enjoyed plug and play success until now. The connection inside the adapter seems to not be consistent as I could wiggle the adapter and have the connection flutter. I bought this to connect my laptop to my TV, and it only actually worked one time, and that was with some finagling and then propping the cable so it wouldn't bust the connection. When I pulled it out to use it again recently I couldn't even get it to register my TV, and as a control I tried it on my wife's Macbook...same problem.
Very disappointed. I know there were poor reviews of this product, but there were also a number of very positive reviews. It's a shame with such a cheap product (as in it can't be very expensive to produce) there isn't a way to make it such a crapshoot whether or not you're going to fall into the "I love it!" category or the "honey, take the kids out of the room while I use bad words" category...
