    Can't seem to find an adapter that will work for me to connect my 23" Apple Cinema Display (Mini DisplayPort) nor my 27" Apple LED Display (Mini DisplayPort PRE-Thunderbolt)

    I know the Apple TB3-TB2 adapter works for 27" Apple Thunderbolt LED Displays but since mine was produced prior to 2011, it used Mini DisplayPort.

    I've tried Juiced Systems product from Amazon, Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 from Apple, and USB-c to DisplayPort and DisplayPort to female Mini DisplayPort adapters and haven't gotten anything to work yet.

    I know people who have the 30" there's works, but that operates on a DVI connection, I've yet to see a working connection from Apple 27" and 23" Display users pre-Thunderbolt.

    I feel like there's a few of us in this boat who are either wanting to use our older displays or are waiting for products like the LG Ultrafine 5k to become available.

    I noticed there was a similar thread, but it became rampant with 30" Apple Cinema Display users, so I wanted to create a new thread for those of us who are in the same boat as I am...

    I bought from Lindy a DisplayPort Male to Mini DisplayPort Female Adapter Cable (41060) and a USB 3.1 Type C to DisplayPort Converter Adapter (43193) which works
