The MDP2DVIS Mini DisplayPort to DVI Active Adapter (single-link) let's you connect your Mini DisplayPort video source (such as any of your MacBook or Microsoft Surface Pro devices with mDP) to a DVI-D display, including televisions and Apple Cinema Display HD, eliminating the expense of having to upgrade to a DisplayPort capable monitor.

Unlike passive video adapters, this Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter offers an active conversion for use with any Mini DisplayPort output - ideal for graphics cards that are not capable of outputting multi-mode DP++ signals (e.g. ATI Eyefinity) .

Supporting resolutions up to 1920x1200, this compact device provides a simple solution for adapting PC or Mac Mini-DisplayPort output for DVI monitors, televisions or projectors.

The Mini DP to DVI adapter is compatible with Intel Thunderbolt, when connected directly to a supporting DisplayPort over Thunderbolt I/O port.

Backed by a StarTech.com 3-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

StarTech.com Mini DisplayPort to DVI Active Adapter is rated3.00 out of5 by5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we neededWe needed an adapter to hook up devices with the mini display port to our older projector in the boardroom to do presentations and such. This cable let us do exactly that. The picture looked crisp and clear. The adapter was well made and looks like it will withstand many bends and crimps. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not what you are looking for! it is not ACTIVE!I bought this adapter because I needed my laptop to display 144Hz at my 144Hz monitor. I needed an active adapter for that, and this product claims to be an ACTIVE adapter. However, it isn't supporting anything over 60Hz. My laptop has the configuration required to boost 144Hz and that I know for sure, but this adapter is not what its description claims. Do not get it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work but high defect rateMy company buys a lot of these and it seems like for every 15 we test, at least 3 of them are defective.....wish that they had a better quality control for these.
