If you have a "modern" Apple product with the mini displayport and a VGA monitor into which you can plug a male-ended VGA cord, you'd be foolish to look elsewhere. However, road-warriors take note: These cables have the *male* end, not the female end the projector cables in most conference rooms are expecting. Oddly, monoprice doesn't sell a mini-displayport female VGA cable. Thus, you'll need to pick up an inexpensive f/f VGA gender changer while you're here.
PROS: Priced right. Looks nice. Works perfectly.
CONS: If you need F VGA for conference rooms or monitors that have a hard-wired cable, also buy a gender changer.
I thought using an hdmi cable would have given me the best resolution, but for some reason Apple decided to not allow the Mac Mini to do full HD with an hdmi cable - the reason being that Apple wants people using their proprietary cables and such. Good thing monoprice exists. No set up necessary. I just plugged it into my Mac and connected the other end to my 32 inch Sony Bravia and I was good to go. If the display you are using doesn't pick up the singnal, all one should do is unplug the cable from the Mac and then plug it back in. That should work
PROS: This cable works well with my Mac Mini (2010). Good alternative for Apple's expensive Mini Display Port converters.
