You never know with anything on eBay because anybody can sell there. If you want a low cost no risk choice, try monoprice.com. I've had no problem returning stuff there that hasn't worked out.

It's an analog adapter. In analog technology, you need good cables and shielding, else the image on the screen distorts and doesn't look nice. I bought my adapter from Apple when I purchased my Mac Mini.

When it comes to analog audio and video, the best you can buy isn't good enough. Everything else is good with cables/adapters from eBay.

all cable adapter

Well I bought a mini to HDMI/DVI/DisplayPort adapter about 2 weeks ago from a power seller named "all cable adapter" on ebay. This 3 in 1 ended to be cheaper than most of the other DVI only adapters I found (even if it shipped from Hong Kong). The quality of the thing really impressed me (for that price I was expecting mostly a not-so-good-looking-but-still-working kind of adapter) and it shipped faster than many other orders I made from the US (and actually shipped faster than another order I placed on the same day, shipping from ontario (canada) to me in quebec (still in canada)...)

I ended up plugging my display on HDMI and it works just fine.

The only bad feedback I can give to that seller is the more-than-poor quality of his english.. but hey; this guy comes from hong kong...

This adapter might suit you :

but he has many different mini-to-vga cables and I'm not quite sure about the differences, so you might want to double-check.
