    Works but not high resolution

    I got this for my Surface Pro 3 to be able to project my computer on a screen during meetings. It worked but was disappointed because it was a low resolution image that appeared blurry. Maybe I do not know how to use this attachment to select the resolution for projecting the image. Just wanted to let others know that this may be a potential issue for your use.

    Worth the Price

    I recently bought a Surface Pro 5 and tried out the less expensive, off-brand, multi-port adapters, despite their questionable reviews. I very quickly learned that it was a mistake, as the adapter didn't work out of the box. This adapter works without fail and is built sturdy. I only wish I had a better way to keep track of it, but that's not the fault of the product.

    This mini display adapter for the Microsoft Surface is the most reliable adapter. I used to have an off brand and it failed. Ever since I shifted to this microsoft branded adapter I have had absolutely no problems. After having lost the last one (my fault) I HAD to buy it again as it is excellent.

    Needed a backup VGA adapter for the Windows Surface Book. The cheaper ones don't always work but the MS ones will work. You need to watch out for the earlier version where the Mini Display port worked for the older Surface Pros since that one is angled.

    This was exactly what I was looking for. I have a Surface Pro 4 and a docking station, this adapter allowed me to hook up 2 monitors for a total display of 3 screens. Easy to connect, set-up and use.

    I use this adapter to extend the screen from my Surface Pro 4 to my old desktop monitor. Having 2 screens to work from or watch a movie on one & work from the other is very convenient.

    This allowed me to connect to my older second monitor at work as well as at a customer site. Connects right up with a standard VGA connection and plugs right into my mini display port on my surface no issues with resolution either

    Wish it cost about half as much but at least it is built well and is a solid accessory. If you need VGA from your surface or even other device this is a good way to go.

    I find the surface is great for portability but when I have to do work in Excel, the screen is just too small. I Purchased this adapter to hook-up to a larger 25" monitor. Works great.

    My windows surface pro4 is a great computer. I am spoiled by having a second screen at the office so now I have a second screen anywhere I choose.

    If you have monitors requiring VGA input and plan to use the Microsoft Surface Dock then you need to purchase these to complete your setup.

    This mini display port adapter helped me use a perfectly good, but older, high res VGA based monitor with a new laptop.

    This is a must have if you have a surface pro and a dock. It lets you connect to an external monitor.

    This works well with my Surface Pro. I have used it with a 6 foot VGA and a 75 foot VGA. No performance issues or low quality signals here!
