Hi guys, I want to connect my MacBook Pro to my external screen, and the genuine Apple mini display port to VGA adapter costs 50$, I wanted to know if you know somewhere that has International shipping and it’s cheaper.Anyway, of course I prefer the genuine one but because I haven’t found one that ships to my country yet, what do you think about this one: http://www.dealextreme.com/p/mini-displayport-male-to-vga-female-adapter-1080p-27603
Should I buy it?
Thank you very much!
I got one off ebay and it works perfectly, the build quality isn’t as good as the original but I’ve had mine for about 2 years and it hasn’t broken yet. So yes, buy it
What’s build quality? And which one should I buy?
My mini display port to DVI adapter just stopped working . I suspect it’s the adaptor that malfunctioned and not a macbook pro bug .
I got a non genuine one and now I am going to buy a genuine one hoping to work. But I am still stranded to work on this tiny screen until tomorrow.
So I would recommend you going for the genuine.
I had that adapter and the maximum resolution it would take was 1680 by whatever, not 1920 by 1200 (or 1080) and the picture was very grainy and poor quality and the refresh rate was stuck at an abnormally low number. Overall, it was an awful experience. I would get the DVI or HDMI adapter, if I had to again.
Mine from ebay still works and does 1920×1080. No problems, but if Alex has experience with that same adapter maybe you should try a different one.
