I bought a replacement after my original one's cord broke off the power brick. Lesson here is NEVER pull it out of the wall outlet by pulling the cord. I learned the hard way and a replacement is not that cheap.

I lost my old adapter to my macbook and had to buy this out of desperation. It's [$] which is ridiculous, and the rubber exterior is really stiff and hard to use when I wrap it around the knobs. Some folks at B&H told me that Apple has this patent for a few more years, so the price of it doesn't look like it's going down any time soon. I mean, if the type of material that they're using for this adapter will last longer, that's terrific. But if you're looking to replace your old adapter and actually can afford to live without it for a few days, order either the old model, or hunt around for cheaper prices.

      I would have ordered the wrong product but because of the assistance I received when placing my order, I received the correct product. I appreciate that kind of assistance. This is a backup replacement for my current power adapter - which I have found to be satisfactory.

                  I am now on my third one of these. Where the cable connects to the magnet is so poorly designed and weak that the internal wires start breaking, and they eventually melt through the plastic coating. I am very careful with these things, and no matter what I do, they fry. If Apple isn't going to fix this problem, the very least they should do is allow other companies to make them--someone could undoubtedly design something better.

                      Arrived on time and in great condition (brand new). I was definitely happy with it. I thought it only came with the power adapter, but it also included the extension cord, which I was happy about.

                      I ordered this for my daughter's MacBook, she needed it very quickly as she is in college and always needs access to her documents. Of course, I find out that she needs ASAP because hers broke. I ordered Sunday night and she had it by Tuesday. It fits perfect and is the right price!

                        It's a replacement power adapter for your Macbook or Macbook pro. Mine's a 2 year old pro. Laptop works fine, original power cord developed some wear and wires were visible. The replacement is exactly the same as my old one. Past laptops usually needed replacement because the physical power brick got messed up, and the replacement usually cost more than this. It's much better to have the failure be a slow fail with plenty of time to get a replacement.

                          Although the magsafe is a good idea, the wire that connects to the laptop is a bit thin and prone to easy wear and tear. Take care of this one because unfortunately the Mac doesn't offer too many options. This is my second adapter, hopefully lasts longer than the first one.

                          Since our kitten chewed on the one part (adapter plug in) of the original cord and I lost the other half on a train, I needed to cough up $ for a replacement for a 4 year old MacBook Pro. I gave 4 stars because Apple charges too much for a necessary part. Simple Apple design. I like that when we travel I only need to bring the Mag Safe part which saves on items to pack and store in our camper, unlike PC power cords that you have to use both parts. The best part is the Mag Safe connection which separates easily when I or a dog trip over the cord. My first PoweBook G4 had a conventional power cord which I tripped over and ruined the plug in port. B&H has very competitive prices and I believe this shipped free. One of the best parts is no Washington state sales tax (8.7%). B&H has a very wide array of goods to sell and I can always find what I am looking for.

                            After many years use, my old MBP charger broke. The new one seems to be stronger and built better (even though it looks 100% the same).

                            Thank you B&H for the excellent customer service.
