Pros: Small. Would have been perfect if it had worked.
Cons: Did not work.
Other Thoughts: Attempted to use this adapter to connect a Mac Mini to a VGA monitor. Did not work, multiple monitors, multiple cables. (Mac displayed fine when connected with hdmi only or hdmi/dvi adapter).
That this piece did not work could merely be an anomaly or hardware incompatibility (the latter being most likely). I will not be performing extensive testing. I will be looking at more well-known manufacturers to supply this product.

Pros: It only works for extended view on my laptop.
Cons: It displays for a few seconds when turning on the computer then goes to a blank screen. only worked for extended view on my laptop but was not the reason I bought it. I tried it on many different desktop computers and had the same result. I looked at the VGA end and notice it is missing a prong and it also show a prong missing in the display picture. Very disappointed in this converter.
Pros: Compact (for laptop use), active adapter, and latest specs.
Cons: Mini-DP side of the adapter is loose in the new laptop's socket.
Other Thoughts: The first symptom of a loose connection was loss of audio. Wiggling the connector usually kills the video, too, but then brings back both audio and video. The laptop is only a little older than this adapter.
