    Works Every Time.
    I work in AV support at an educational center. Presenters can come in with any of the recent and not-so-recent video connection standards. This little gem has worked without fail each time I have used it, unlike a more expensive brand purchased elsewhere.
    Mac, Dell and HP, no problem. Ordering more to eliminate conflicts caused by having only the one we ordered first as a test.

    PROS: Low cost,
    Works every time (so far),
    Great item for my bag-o-tricks

    CONS: I only have one (so far...)

    Works like a champ
    This mini Display port to VGA adaptor works great on the HP and Lenovo I haven't tested with Apple yet. I now only purchased active devices because of issues i have had with non-active adaptors.

    It works.
    This product does exactly what it says it does. Simply plug it in and it works. I used it to make my Mac mini into a dual monitor setup, the other connection being HDMI.

    Failed to work with my MacBook Pro and a projector (VGA input)
    I've never had trouble with an adapter from MonoPrice before, but although this one worked at home with my old VGA monitor, it completely failed to work with the Epson projector (VGA input) at the school in which I work. I ended up ordering an Apple branded adapter instead, which works perfectly.
