    A must have product if you are using an older projector with your Surface. It adds the VGA port that Microsoft left off of the Surface. I chose the Microsoft brand over other 3rd party products to insure compatibility with my system. The fact that it cost less by a few dollars didn't hurt either. Have used it three times now without problems. Just plugged it in and it worked the first time. The product was not available in the store, however the store associate was very helpful in getting it ordered and sent directly to my home and arrived in two days (I could have had it shipped to the store). I highly recommend it and Best Buy

    I purchased this adapter to use with my Surface Pro 4 when making presentations at locations where I cannot use the wireless hdmi adapter (which I love). Simple plug & play. No issues thus far. My only criticism is the cord could be just a little longer so the vga block could sit on the table next to the tablet - reducing the pull on the Mini Display-Port plug when the Surface is upright. That's just a minor gripe. The on-sale BestBuy price was better than anywhere else I had seen too.

    It's not an overly complicated or new type of product on the market place, but it's well built and handles being thrown around in a computer bag daily. The MD port insert easily fits comfortably into my surface, as well as my other laptops, which with other similar products, the MD port insert doesn't stay comfortably attached or sometimes doesn't easily plug into my surface pro computer.

    The adapter works perfectly but the video port connector is squared-off and doesn't fit well into the surface tablet. It should be great on most tablets but since the surface's port is on a sloping surface the connector doesn't fit fully into the port. Since this adapter is advertised for the surface you would think it would have the correct angle on the connector.

    I purchased this adapter for our company laptop which we use for public meetings and presentations on the go. I carry this adapter and an HDMI adapter in the bag so no matter what the setup we can connect without an issue. It works very well with our Microsoft Surface Book, it clicks in with no issues and fits perfectly and looks nice with the surface to keep things consistent.

    I really didn't have a choice in buying this adaptor, but it is nicely made and works great. I really like the fact that I can screw the pins on the projector plug into the adaptor - that way nothing can come undone partway through a presentation. Please note that this adaptor must be itself connected to the power module and the power module must be plugged in.

    Sales team completed well in closing the deal. Stove is very good and functional. Microwave is also a great fit for us and efficient. Dishwasher is good and reliable. The side by side frig is good but the freezer turned out to be a bit narrow. However, the fit for the space is just right. Overall purchase was good. I will recommend the product.

    Plug in port on surface pro...plug into external monitor. Automatically installs drivers...tweeks to screen size and icon placement needed, but, this is an excellent option for those wanting an inexpensive solution to a "desktop" surface pro. Also recommend adding a powered USB hub to extend that 1 usb port and add a wireless mouse and keyboard.

    Great adapter if you need to hook up your Surface to an external monitor. I imagine this is mostly for when you are on the road and you need to give a presentation. You can easily connect your Surface tablet to a large screen TV or a projector. It works well every time. 4 stars because of the high price compared to 3rd party alternatives.

    My work bought me computer monitors that required vga. I bought two of the adapters, especially happy they came in black, and now with the dock, my surface pro 4 is a complete workstation. I have two monitos, webcam, keyboard, mouse, and mic all plugged into the surface and all in black, looks clean. These were plug and play, work great!

    Grabbed this so I can set up my Surface in my bedroom to have a 2nd monitor by the bed, works great! I can work while playing Netflix on the other monitor. I have the HDMI adapter as well, but with this VGA one I can just leave it there for quick hookup and take the HDMI as a travel adapter. Well worth the cost to me.

    I converted from an Apple laptop to a Microsoft Surface Pro 4. I love the Surface Pro. This handy adapter is very useful for someone who does presentations at different venues with different projection equipment. I always keep it with me when I'm presenting so I can "adapt" to whatever projection equipment is there.

    This adapter helped connect my surface pro to my tv. Now I can stream from my computer to my tv for large screen viewing. This adapter was easy to plug in to and use. I only wish that I brought my computer to the store with me because I purchased the wrong adapter during my first visit and had to go back to get this one.

    I'm glad this is available for the surface pro so I can attach my laptop to standard projectors using VGA instead of HD. I can also attach it to my current monitor and also when I finally get a dock for it so I can use my surface pro as a desktop. Nice to have simple cables like this and comes handy.

    This adapter is perfect and works fantastic with my surface. I had bought an off brand adapter and it broke within 2 months of use. This microsoft adapter is made for the surface and it is sturdy, performs well and it is easy to use. Plus the looks of this product makes it look more professional.

    Had a presentation and I always bring my surface pro as a backup just in case the company has computer issues. 8am Presentation and the computer the company had hooked to the projector was not working. The Mini display port saved my presentation and a couple thousands dollars...

    I needed to hook my Surface Pro 4 to a projector to present a PowerPoint presentation. It worked as promised with a good, clear display. I won't need this very often, so I'm glad I got a good price on it from Best buy. ... alot less expensive than the one at the Microsoft store.

    This worked as expected in terms of allowing me to show a powerpoint through a projector. I didn't give it 5 stars because I don't know if it will transfer the sound as well as the picture. The HDMI adapter like this that I bought doesn't transfer the sound...only the picture.

    As this is a desktop docking station, why would the manufacturer position the connection cord on the side. Looks weird and is annoying when figuring out desk space. Should be around the back. Only reason i would recommend the product is because i couldn't find another one.

    I recently gave up my laptop at work, and started using my personal Surface Pro 3 with a VDI. That was great until I started having to go to meetings and present on the mounted screens. I grabbed both this adapter and the HDMI adapter, and carry them in my laptop bag. Very handy.
