I needed to connect my 2007 Mac Book to the AV machine for a presentation I would be doing at a convention. I had from other venders ordered the mini-DVI to DVI adapter only to find out it was the wrong one. What they sent had the thunderbolt side, which looks like what you need but is actually quite a bit smaller. I called Apple and they said this product would work from Monoprice, so I ordered it. It was the CORRECT mini-DVI end. Yeah. I had no problem hooking my computer to the AV machine and do my presentation. Thank you Monoprice!
Bought 2 of these for office laptops in September 2014. Both setups are mostly stationary, but about a month ago displays started flickering, a couple of weeks they started cutting out if the adapters were jostled. Now, any significant movement will cause the video to cut out completely and the user has to fiddle about with the adapter to find the "sweet spot" for video to return. After testing with other monitors, DVI cables, and computers, I've isolated the problem to the adapters. Still, for 1/10th the price of Apple's adapter, I believe the computers in question will be retired long before I need my 3rd or 4th adapter!
PROS: Worked immediately and flawlessly for 1 year, 5 months, and 4 days.
This item came quickly and I cannot imagine expecting more from a connector (a back rub would be nice). I did not give it a ten because I cannot predict if it will somehow breakdown too soon, and I have only had it a couple of weeks.
PROS: feels solid, fits well on both ends, longer cord than the original from Apple
My order arrived promptly and in excellent condition. The adapter was just what I wanted and it fit perfectly on my Mac Mini, connecting it to the monitor. It has performed flawlessly since first connecting it. I couldn't be more satisfied.
PROS: Inexpensive, fits properly, arrived in excellent (new) condition, fully functional and does the job flawlessly
