seems there may be an issue with Samsung TV's, and possibly more, judging by the comments at the Store.
Agreed, Mac cables are expensive but they are not alone in this regard.
I wonder what sort of answer you would get if you called the Store and asked questions about it.
Worth at try
I have the standard 13" aluminum macbook, and I was looking into getting the 'Mini DisplayPort to VGA' adapter to connect my 22" Samsung monitor. On the Apple website, I have seen nothing but horrible reviews about the connection cable, saying that it exclusively does not work with Samsung brand monitors and TV's. On the other hand I only see good things about it connecting to other devices and monitors.
Can anyone shed any light on this? It's already ridiculous that i have to pay the 30$ price for this cable just to use an external monitor, the least I can do is know that it will for sure work.
thanks in advance,
