Mini DisplayPort 1.1 to HDMI®, DVI & DisplayPort Adapter, Black
When your MacBook® needs to connect to a variety of different display types, you need this multifunction adapter from Monoprice!
This adapter has a mini DisplayPort (mDP) connector on one end for connecting to the output of your MacBook, MacBook Pro®, MacBook Air®, or any other device with an mDP output. The other end has DisplayPort (DP), HDMI®, and DVI output ports, allowing you to connect to a single display using either of these standards. This adapter saves you the hassle and expense of purchasing and transporting different adapters with your MacBook because this one adapter fits all the primary standards you are likely to encounter in your travels.
Note that this will not connect more than one display at a time. Only a single display can be connected to one of the outputs.

PROS: Very inexpensive
Has multiple different outputs.
CONS: Not active.
Can only hook up one output at a time (fairly expected)
CONS: Is passive, not active.
PROS: cheap and quick delivery (since I'm in CA)
CONS: none so far
PROS: Otherwise it works fine on my Surface 3 Pro.
CONS: I wish the cable from the device was longer so the tangle of wires wasn't on my desk. That's the only reason I subtracted a star.
PROS: Solid construction, several output options (minus D-Sub)
CONS: I get that random and annoying 1-2 second black screen
The device was used regularly with a Macbook Air but in a location where there was little to no stress placed on the adapter, i.e. it was plugged into my Macbook Air mini displayport adapter laying flat on my desk. The cable that it was plugged into (majority of the time, DVI, but occasionally DisplayPort and HDMI) also laid flat on my desk so there was little to no stress placed on the adapter.
I now realize this adapter had been failing for several months but I initially wrote it off to a variety of things. The initial problem was that the external monitor would occasionally not display when the Macbook Air was restarted from sleep state. The issue was easily resolved if I unplugged the adapter or the video cable and plugged it back in. It was unclear what was causing the issue as I thought it could be caused by a number of issues including OSX upgrades, my laptop's displayport hardware, cables, etc. I never once thought it was the adapter since this is the first time I have had an adapter fail on me in almost 30 years. But this last week it became very clear when it permanently failed. and I borrowed several other adapters and when they worked I realized my adapter had failed.
In retrospect, I should have reported it to Monoprice sooner but didn't because I could not identify which component in the chain was causing the problem and the problem was easily resolved. Needless to say I will be returning the replacement adapter I just purchased as soon as it arrives and replacing it with display adapters with a longer warranty period. If I cannot acquire display adapters with a longer warranty period then I will purchased dedicated format adapters so I can replace only what is needed when they do fail.
PROS: convenient - multiple ports in one adapter
purchased from Monoprice (regardless of what happened with this item, I really, really like this supplier as they have what I consider to be superb customer service)
CONS: completely FAILED after 1 year, 4 months
warranty is only 1 year
when one adapter format fails they ALL fail.
PROS: worked for ten months,
CONS: 1 defective (broke) and 2 lacks VGA (more common than DVI), but you know that going in.
Thank you for your review and sorry to hear of the issue you have experienced with PID 12744. Did you happen to have the order number? I can help in setting up an RMA for a replacement if you would like. Just let me know and I can help in setting that up.
