2 out of 5 eggsvery sporatic

Pros: allows me to go from thunderbolt port on iMac to DVI monitor

Cons: on, off, on, off, wiggle wire, off, on, off, on. Sometimes it works fine, sometimes I want to throw it in the trash. It's very inconsistent and not stable at all. I'm constantly screwing with it to get the signal back on the monitor

5 out of 5 eggsFour monitors!

Pros: This little adapter did exactly what I wanted. Other than that, I don't really know what else to say.

Cons: The thunderbolt end of the adapter feels really loose when plugged into my graphics card, but it could be this or the card.

Other Thoughts: A note for people looking to take advantage of the thunderbolt port on their graphics card who already have 3 monitors in surround: this WILL work with another monitor. Unless the thunderbolt monitor is going to be the ones in the surround setup, a passive adapter will work just fine.

3 out of 5 eggsDoes NOT work for Multi-monitor support

Pros: Does work for output to DVI through a mini-display port

Cons: This is a PASSIVE converter denoted only by the lack of the word "active" in its description, which means it cannot be used for output to a third (or more monitors).

Other Thoughts: At the very least the difference should be made more obvious as neither the video card manufacturer (XFX), the adapter manufacturer, nor New Egg brought to my attention the limitations of using a passive converter.

3 out of 5 eggsHalf Functional, didn't work on Monitor...

Pros: Mac recognizes it

Cons: Monitor does not

Other Thoughts: I have been using a VGA to DVI cable for my monitor on my PC for the past 2 years and have had no problems, just purchased this adapter for my 2012 15" Macbook Pro, my mac recognizes my monitor (LG Flatron W2250T) but my TV does not receive a signal and goes into "Power Saving Mode." I believe it is a problem with the adapter because I can't think of any other place that could go wrong seeing as it works on my PC without the adapter. I will be returning it.

3 out of 5 eggsStarTech PASSIVE Mini DP to DVI

Pros: Allows for displaying on dvi monitors when you run out of dvi ports, but have display left over.

Sturdy when plugged in. It looked like it would fall out but it does not.

Cons: Does not allow for eyefinity to work properly or for AMD cards to draw on over 3 monitors when this is in use. Do not purchase for AMD cards like I did. Opt for the active version instead. I was unaware than an active adapter was needed.
