        Comments about Gigaware® Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter:

        As the only local option, I gave in and went to the Shack. All the poor reviews are from Apple users. Since. All the positive reviews were from windows users. It may be safe to say: windows works, apple devices may have issues.

        My laptop: Dell Lattitude 7240 worked very well. Audio from my computer to any other device will still require an AUX chord. Given the outputs of this computer, this was the only/best option for me.

          I purchased this for a microsoft surface pro 2 and it works very well. Of the 8 reviews I read before purchasing, 6 were by Mac users who rated it very poorly and 2 were by Microsoft users who rated it very highly.

          BOGUS product caused horrible outcome

                Comments about Gigaware® Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter:

                I made the enormous mistake of believing the packaging that said it is intended for MacBook. Then I stood up in front of all of my colleagues at work to give the biggest presentation to date that I have ever had to give... AND THIS PRODUCT CAUSED MY MACBOOK PRO TO GO TO A BLACK SCREEN OF DEATH. After trying to troubleshoot it for 15 minutes, I was forced to give a one hour presentation with no slides. This, after spending three weeks creating a Keynote presentation chock full of high tech animation and graphics.

                Yes I am a fool for not trying the product out the day before. And I will never purchase another item from either of the companies involved with the debacle.

                        Used with Mac Mini - computer keeps losing display setting when it sleeps. The only way to preserve my settings is to turn the monitor off when I am not using the computer. In trying to save $5, it will end up costing me an additional $25 because I now have to purchase the Apple brand in order to keep my computer working properly. If you have a Mac, better stick with the brand or you'll end up spending double.

                            Bought this from a Radio Shack store to connect my Dell Ultrabook to a VGA monitor. Setup and use was simple - just plug it in - took 20 seconds. At first noticed a small white horizontal line flickering at the top of the VGA monitor (dell ultrasharp 23" widescreen), but after a simple horizontal adjustment on the monitors settings, the line was gone.

                                    I have a 13" MacBook Pro (2012) that I wanted to display with my new Samsung monitor. I spend a lot of time on the computer and figured a bigger screen would make my time easier. Unfortunately, this product is simply a piece of plastic. I literally tried every suggestion I found within various help forums on the web to resolve my issue (not thinking it could actually be the adapter). My laptop recognized the monitor display and even behaved like both were active, yet my monitor remained black even after countless tries.

                                    Sorry Gigaware. This product does not work. Test your products before you sell them. Thank you for wasting my time.

                                        I bought a Gigaware Mini Displayport to VGA Cable Adapter at Radio Shack, to see whether I could use a Mac Mini or a MacBook or a MacBook Pro to drive the brand new 27 inch monitor I purchased. Using this adapter, neither of the Apple laptops could drive the monitor. The monitor reported "No Signal." I took the monitor to an independent Apple repair shop to see if their Mac Mini would work with the monitor. No luck using the VGA cable with the Gigaware adapter. The technician said "let's try the Apple adapter." The Apple-brand adapter worked. The Gigaware adapter almost caused me to buy a different monitor.
