      I support a facility that has standard VGA cabling for its displays, so when our new macbook pros came with the DVI-D model of this product, I had to purchase a lot of these to be compatible with our facility. The work perfect. I have tried a couple of the off brands to save a few bucks, but they have major problems with consistent connections. This one works perfect, but it could be a bit longer for certain situations, maybe offering as a separate product.

      Not much to say about an adapter, but you can't go without it if you want to hook up to an external monitor. You can also go for the HDMI adapter if your external screen/monitor allows it. Only gave it a 3 star due to the value-for-money issue...a bit pricey for what you get.

                                    We used this to generate an analog signal to several projectors using a distribution amp. It gave me the quality I was hoping for on every screen without compromising the main display of the Mac. I was hoping to output VGA as well as composite but a scan converter within the loop helped me accomplish that. I would use this again and I hope thay come out with a mini display adapter to other analog signals.

                                            small, works right out of the box, size allows easy transport (since non of the conference rooms you ever go to have anything other than VGA adaptor)

                                                    I'm a photographer and occasionally need to connect my laptop plasma screens to run slideshows during weddings bar mitzvahs and sweet 16s. While I've had HDMI cords fail on me this adapter has proven to work every time. I purchased this product as a backup in case I lose my first one. I would recommend this product again and again

                                                            This is the most simple form of getting what's on your macbook to show on any external monitor/projector. Can't be any easier. As always, it comes in the fancy Apple packaging that we've all come to know as their standard.
