I purchased the adaptor to drive a Wacom Cintiq first generation under the suggestion of the Wacom customer service. Unfortunately I didn't solved my problem and the Wacom still not showing any images.

I bought this adapter to hook up my new Wacom graphics tablet to my MacBook Pro. I love this adapter! It works perfectly to connect these two machines… no sputters or loss of data, no screen flickers as reported with adapters even made by Apple… It Is Perfect!

I use this to connect a Macbook Pro to a Wacom 21UX Cintiq drawing tablet. I originally used a connector that I bought at the Apple store. From time to time my Cintiq screen image would wobble or get slow-moving waves in it. I thought there was some error in the driver software, or perhaps the Cintiq itself was falling apart. Then I saw a post from someone experiencing a similar problem, who had discovered that the connector was at fault. I searched and found Kanex, bought the product and have had no problems since. It is an excellent connector, far superior to the one that Apple themselves supply. My only dislike is that the brand name is not printed on the connector itself anywhere, and when I wanted to buy a spare I couldn't remember the name of the company, and had to search until I recognized the logo.

Hello, I returned it because it was the opposite of what I needed for my old Mac studio display monitor to work with new Mac Mini. The gentleman I emailed with correctly identified what I did need, based on photos I sent... I found it on ebay, as Kanex doesn't make/carry it. Thank you.

Works as expected, when it works.... It worked fine at the first time I connected my digital-only LCD monitor via this product. At some point later, OS went to sleep mode and so did the monitor. When OS wakes up, the monitor does not. During several subsequent attempts to get the image to the monitor, the monitor presence was detected perhaps 40% of the time. Never after sleep mode. Eventually I turned the sleep off in the monitor and turned it on/off manually. This worked for 2 days, then again no image to the monitor. Now I don't even try anymore.

1. To connect my iMac to my Wacom tablet. 2. Easy and simple and efficient. 3. nothing 4. I appreciate that the packaging mentioned "gift" and a value of $5, so I did not have to pay any other taxes. I found it a bit expensive, the packaging and delivering ant it took a bit of time. I can say that i am very satisfied with the product and it deserves a 5 stars. Thank you! Sorry for moy English.

I used this to connect my Macbook Pro to a Wacom Cintiq 18sx drawing tablet/screen. It works perfectly, the connection is strong and secure. I guess it'd be nice if the cord was a few inches longer, but it's a standard adapter length so I have no complaints on that.

1) This is used to connect an older monitor to a Mac Pro Tower that only has one VGI output and two thunderbolt outputs. 2) It seems pretty sturdy. 3) none - Too early to say. I only used it for a couple weeks. 4) Way over packaged for something as trivial as an adapter. Granted, certainly it is good quality, but it is a waste of paper and plastic.

1. I use this to Connect my MacBook Pro to an 18' Cintiq SX 2. Ease of use- just plug it in 3. I don't think its your product, but my Cintiq loses its calibration data when in sleep mode, meaning that the monitor either has to be turned off and on, or use a mouse to drive to the calibration controls. Mildly annoying, but not a deal-breaker. 4. This product was recommended by Wacom, and I appreciated the recommendation!
