Good product – Mini DisplayPort DP Male to VGA Female Adapter Cable (10CM) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- Price is quite cheap
- Looks like the original
- Does mostly what it should do
Cons:
- Does not actually work exactly same way than original (see Other Thoughts for more information)
Other:
Well, main reason for Ease-of-use Rating (I gave 3/5) is, that the adapter needed shutdown and restart to get work. Original one can be used "on fly". The adapter is needed to plug in while booting so that MacBook Pro "recognises" the "new device" or someting like that. These are of course my thoughts and depends on my experience.
I noticed, that my MacBook Pro boots up very fast, so therefore there is no reason to use sleep mode. Only reason for sleep mode is, that browser and other programs keeps ones state.
Bottomline:
Good product, I can recommend.
