I got this adapter over the Cirago Mini DisplayPort to VGA Active Adapter (DPA2011) because it was less expensive. But let me tell you, it works! It actually works!! If I had a dollar for every VGA or DVI adapter out there that was poor quality control junk, then I'd be raking it in. I was so pleased when this adapter instantly worked with no questions asked. I've heard that the Cirago adapter is also very nice and works beautifully, but I haven't tried it myself.

The real reason I got this is because it's an ACTIVE adapter. I have a MacBook Pro 15" Late 2011, and when I try to boot in Windows 7 while using an external monitor, there's absolutely no picture on the screen if I'm using a regular VGA adapter. The Mac OS works fine. HOWEVER, StarTech came to the rescue, and after weeks of grueling agony without my nice monitor, I can FINALLY use both operating systems on the big screen!

The problem with regular (or "passive") VGA adapters is that they need software to convert the digital signal to analog. Some computers have it and some don't. The *StarTech* adapter is awesome because it has built-in hardware for doing the conversion for you without any extra software or drivers. They're called "active" adapters because they actively convert the signal all by themselves.

If you have any doubt in your mind about buying a cheap knock-off VGA adapter, consider spending a tad bit more for this one because it's worth it.

Well made adapter, works like a charm and does not take up much space in the gadget bag. Price was way better than Microsofts, which didn't even have this adapter on their site; my price comparison is for the one for the Surface RT, which uses mini-USB. IF you have a Surface PRO... this is the one you NEED.

I own a Dell XPS L702X laptop. I ordered this adapter so I can connect second monitors and projectors that require the VGA connection. My laptop runs both Windows 7 and Ubuntu/Kubuntu. For the Linux OS, I do have to have this adapter plugged into the computer when I first turn it on else the Linux OS won't recognize it. However, most people run Windows and they will be happy to know that it is completely plug-n-play on the Win7 side and requires no restarting.

The only glitch I've noticed is the compatibility with only ONE Epson projector and it is only that there can be seen very slight "wiggling" of the image on the screen with certain colors displayed on the screen. It does NOT happen with the other Epson projector I own, nor the Samsung flat monitor or the Dell flat monitor I own. All other devices I have connected with it work perfectly. It must only be a rare compatibility issue with the image settings of either my video card, that particular monitor's color settings, or both. I do not believe this will be something that others will experience.

Great price, Amazon shipped quickly, very happy with purchase!

I have a Dell XPS 15 without VGA output. So, thanks to this adapter I can made presentations or simply use an old monitor. Exactly what I need!

After researching this cable, emailing the company, AND calling them, it was only after I had purchased this cable that I was informed that it only provided audio conversion from mini display port to HDMI1, the type of HDMI that no TV's are anymore. Highly dissatisfied, if I just wanted a video converter I would have bought one for 1/4th the price somewhere else.

Great product and works as stated. Bought it for my Acer Aspire V5-122p-0600 laptop . I put it into my mini display port & connected a HDMI cable to it and the other end to LCD TV & it worked immediately. Video & audio came thru the adapter. Would highly recommend getting this adapter.

This little guy was just what i needed to connect my Surface Pro to random VGA projectors for displaying PowerPoint slides. What can I say? Works perfectly. And, it's not white and it cost much less than the one from Microsoft!
