Price point is way too high unfortunately. With 22” monitors coming down to that price range, I don’t think many will be anxious to buy yet another converter for this single purpose. Maybe at $99, but $180 is a bit steep.

Agree totally. Things change all too fast to invest another $180 in just a converter. Sorry guys. Thumbs down on this one.

How is this unit different? Why the box/power supply/ etc. isn’t it just a plug adaptor?

This one is the other way around. The Apple one lets a DVI monitor plug into a Mac with MiniDisplayPort. This one lets a monitor with MiniDisplayPort plug into a computer with DVI output.

I agree that $180 is too steep.
