Adapters are great for when you need to connect to an existing cable like on a projector or monitor at a temporary location. For use one your desk at home I recommend getting the cable wit the right connectors on each end as that is fat better than having the large adapter end hanging two inches off your Mac.

Be sure to see my three different videos to find the right option for you.

For whatever reason, the video on the mono price cables has the least amount of views but these are. The best option for people that want to connect theirMac at home.

    Hello Tech128,

    Great video, although I do have a question.

    I have a Late 2013 Retina MacBook Pro (13 inch) and I also have those two thunderbolt ports on the side. The only thing that’s throwing me off is the Mini DisplayPort cable; to me, the cable looks a lot bigger than the thunderbolt port, but it fit in just fine on there. Is it just my eyes playing tricks on me?

    No VGA selection option on the older monitors.
    They both have VGA and HDMI.
    the monitors can play DVD's Player in the monitor /TV itself .they both have cable selections,PC games ,

    I was starting the VGA was just a out put!

    I've used the adapter years ago with FCP 5.
    On a basic Monitor No VGA selection option on the older monitors.
    They both have VGA and HDMI.
    the monitors can play DVD's Player in the monitor /TV itself .they both have cable selections,PC games ,

    Thx
