    Does this work with a Microsoft Surface Pro?
    New User U on Apr 18, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The Surface Pro will utilize a Mini DisplayPort connection. This Mini-DVI connector will not fit. I would recommend Product ID 12743. Which will be a Mini DisplayPort to VGA adapter.

    I am very pleased with the products and service I receive through monoprice.com. I was originally referred to monoprice.com by an employee of Best Buy when I was looking for this adapter.

    I have made other purchases for different cables and adapters, all of which I can say confidently are still in use today.

    Just what I needed.
    After fussing with software solutions to get my MacMini to display properly on my Vizio Monitor. I read somewhere about these adapters. Since I was using the vga port for a windows computer and the resolution was fantastic I decided to give this adapter a go. Once it arrived, sure enough !!! Just what I need it. I just wanted to have 1920 res out my mac mini. 1080p setting over hdmi was simply horrible for the fonts.

    It works
    The device converts mini-DVI to VGA simply and allows a VGA cable to output video to a monitor, TV or any device accepting a VGA input. Saves a lot of $ by buying from MonoPrice instead of Apple directly or most other stores.

    Mini DVI to VGA for Mac Mini
    Little did I realize that the display port on my Mac Mini (running Leopard) works better with this VGA adapter than with the HDMI adaptor. It all has to do with native resolution of the HDTV. Mine, did not match the display resolutions available in the system preferences setting for "displays". The native resolution for the TV is 1360x768, nowhere to match in the preference display settings. So what happens then is the picture doesn't fit onto the screen from edge to edge. There is a 1 inch black border around the picture. If you select "overscan" from the options in display preferences, then the picture fills the screen but about 1 inch too large which means you lose the menu bar on top. Plus, the graphics and fonts were not perfect. That corrects itself with this adaptor. Now the graphics and fonts are perfect and the resolution matches so the screen is filled from edge to edge properly.

    Works great with quality connectors!
    It does what it is supposed to and it does it well. Great cable and high quality connectors. Better and less expensive than other options out there. You cannot go wrong with this one.

    Just what I needed
    Arrived in sealed, original packaging. Worked perfectly straight out of the wrapper with no configuration needed. Appears to be well-made.

    This item works perfectly. I bought these to work with ten Mac Minis that were donated to a local community center. The Minis do not have the standard vga plug-in and no one knew who to connect the Minis to the vga monitors. I've used MonoPrice for my personal computers and knew they would have the answers and they did. Oh yeah, the price was low and the product is top quality.
