Do not purchase this product if you are looking to buy the "newest" (November 2009) Mac dongle that works with the unibody aluminum Macbook Pros and such. It is the old adapter for the white Macbooks (and other Macs). Finding the appropriate adapter you need for Macs is very difficult online, and this image is nothing short of directly misleading customers. Part of the blame should lie with Apple, who continually invents new adapters with confusing names (mini display port, micro DVI, etc.).

This is not a mini-display port adapter. The pictures on the page are of a mini-display port plug, not a mini-DVI, but they are selling the mini-DVI at this point I believe. Be cautious of this product, Amazon or the sellers keep changing the description and the product that is being sold. Three months ago, it was listed as a mini-display port adaptor. I purchased it and it worked great. One month later, I decided to get a second one, ordered the same exact product, all descriptions on the page stated that it was a mini-display port adapter, except that the title had been changed to mini-DVI. Because it was the same product page that I had order a month prior, I ordered one and ended up with a mini-DVI adapter. After I requested returning the wrong adapter, the description of the product changed, but the pictures are still wrong. Use extreme caution! You never know which adapter you may get if you order from this page!!!

This adapter is a little bulky and still overpriced for what it is - but it's a lot cheaper than the one you would get from Apple and it seems to work fine so far.

If you have a Mac computer that's 2008 or later and wish to connect it to your television set equipped with a typical VGA (also called RGB) jack, chances are you'll require not a mini-DVI connector but this mini "display port" connector. Of course, you'll also need a VGA cable with male pins on both ends (unless you plan to stand in back of your TV set while holding the computer with its 6" adapter right next to the VGA.) This adapter appears to be close to Apple quality at a fraction of the price. And indeed it does work, but you may need to exercise a bit of patience before the Mac and your Sony, Samsung, or Sharp TV learn how to communicate with each other. After tweaking the settings in my Sony, I made the connection and instantly saw a vivid, sharp image of my computer's desktop but not of any of the files--visual, video, documents--on the desktop. So I went into System Settings on the Mac, from there to Display and kept fiddling. Finally, I did something that activated the box called "Refresh Rate." I tried several different rates, and only when I came upon 60 HZ did my television screen mirror my computer screen--quite handsomely, in fact. Of course, you'll require an audio cable with 3.5mm plugs on both ends to send sound from your computer to your TV.

But when all is said and done, the point of this exercise may be hard to justify unless, of course, you're using your computer in conjunction with a projection TV in the classroom or some other public place. Of course, you can download movies from Amazon or Netflix or the large library of freebies at Hulu(dot)com and, rather than watch them on your computer, transport them to your TV.

What can I say? It works as it is supposed to. Hook up the monitor cable to one end and the other end to the laptop port and wait for it to connect. My only problem with it is that it's short, so all that bulk is too close to the laptop. It looks identical to what you get at the Apple store, so I think it's a design flaw with all of them. Apple MB572Z/A Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter Be sure you get the proper adapter for your monitor: VGA vs DVI.
