    Cable was a lifesaver

    My son graduated high school last year. During his celebration, we wanted to do a slideshow. However, my old PC projector, which hadn't been plugged up in 20 years, was not up to the task with today's technology. I was scrambling for a solution when I stumbled upon this cable that would hook my MacBook Pro laptop up to the television set. It was my fault for not testing the old equipment but this saved the day and gave the family a great slideshow! It was very inexpensive compared to other potential solutions and of course an extremely easy setup. My family continues to use it. Very happy with this purchase

    Decent cable to link Mac to HDMI TV display

    Overall, the cable did the job of connecting my Mac to our HDMI input on our TVs so we could watch streaming content (on out non-smart TVs). It was the cheaper option to AppleTV. I also own a Google Chromecast, but of course, you can't stream iTunes movies and some online content on Chromecast (yet). My only complaint is that when watching live streaming video such as the Rio Olympics, the cable seemed to cut out the sound. Not sure if the bandwidth of the cable isn't high enough or the cable housing is cheap. Downloaded content works fine. Until various media support both AppleTV and Chromecast, this is a good and inexpensive option to watch online content from Mac on your TV.

    Pricey but works

    I went ahead and spent the $40 even though the store had it hanging in the wrong place marked with a price of $25 because my employer was reimbursing me for it. Have a new Cad station with 4 mini display port outputs on the video card. Needed to connect an LCD screen that only had HDMI capability and thats what I did. I can't see the cable being worth $40... but i didn't feel like waiting on something made in China to be shipped through amazon.

    Over the last few years I've tried some cheaper Mini DisplayPort to HDMI cables and, to my frustration, none of them worked. The other day I decided to give this rather pricey cable a shot, and my frustrations have been abated. You get what you pay for! The product easy easy to use, is an appropriate length, feels extremely durable (as it should), and is just generally a good purchase. I would recommend it to a friend.

    Works great, just plug into PC and smart TV, change the input on the TV remote and the TV becomes a reflection of the PC screen. I have a small tablet/PC with a correspondingly small display screen. This allows me to turn my TV into a large work screen. Also good for viewing movies, YouTube videos, etc. I tried the wireless version but the display especially with videos/movies was jumpy, not smooth. The cable setup solved that.

    Great openbox price

    When I was choosing this wire for my Mac output to HDMI there was minimal choice options. For a brand new cable was kind of pricy in my eyes. Then I noticed they had a opened box price. So I went & ahead & took my chances with the open box resealed for 1/2 price basically. I've used it every day with no connectivity issues. Another thing I was somewhat skeptical about was the brand because the tv's by this brand & performance reviews weren't all that great. So I assumed it would be like that because of the brand but I'm glad to say no issues for the brand. Overall it was the "Best Buy"

    I had to return this. It does NOT provide audio.

    I asked the salesperson when I purchased this if it would do the same as the mini port adapter I had already. I was assured it would. But it doesn't. Audio does not work through this one. Be sure you purchase the one that indicates both audio and visual. It was frustrating because I returned it later than 15 days so I couldn't get a refund. That is simply too short of a time. I live aways from a Best Buy and was away for most of the month I had purchased the cable. Fortunately, they had something I could exchange it for. This policy is discouraging enough that I will continue to shop Amazon.

    Works well with my old school MacBook (white)

    I own a late 2009 white MacBook 13" and I wanted to have the ability to browse and to do editing on a larger screen. This cable fits my needs perfectly and I can do work from the comfort of my couch (sometimes bed...lol). There are wireless options that will do the same thing but I preferred to go this route. The cable is 6' long so this may or may not meet your needs. I don't believe Insignia offers a longer option but to get the length I needed, I purchased a 12ft Insignia cable and Rocketfish HDMI coupler (check out my review on it). Now I have 18ft of cable.

    I needed this cord to connect my iMac to another monitor. It worked for extending the desktop to the other screen, but it does not pass the sound. For some reason it wants to make the sound come from the other screen, which does not have speakers. I could connect speakers to it, but why do that when they are already embedded in my iMac. I ended up going back to a VGA cord with a mini DisplayPort adapter. I returned it, but the cord would work in most instances; just not for what I wanted.

    I'm very happy with my tv. The person that help me with my purchase was very helpful with making the right decision . Helpful with answering questions . I feel happy with my decision. I do have a slight complaint I did returns/exchanges 3 times customer service was great. But the second time I was doing a exchange I went to see what tvs you have and the gentleman that help me was not helpful with answering question almost like he was bored helping customers. I'm sure thats not how you want any of your employers to react to customer.

    This cable is quite good, and works for my particular use case- from an OWC dock to an HDMI monitor. That being said, I was surprised at the steep up charge on this particular item; in recent years BestBuy has been much better about competitive pricing. I'll be keeping the cable though, as it is good enough to use despite the extra wallet pinching.

    Good cable for general use

    Good cable for general use. Don't fall for the gold plated BS. There is no real perceivable difference between regular plating and gold plating. save money and get this cable versus the overpriced gold plated one. i mainly use it for going from my laptop to my TV for working (not watching video or playing games) so it works fine. For basic stuff (cables, keyboards, mice, etc) Insignia is an OK brand to buy. I personally wouldn't buy any of their high-end stuff (TVs, etc). But that's just my personal preference.

    I purchased a Screen Beam HDMI product and this cable, as I needed to get my work laptop and other things to connect to a large display monitor...and the less wires the better, so I thought, and this was a back up plan to the Screen Beam. unfortunately the Screen Beam kept losing the connection, but this cable connected perfectly every time. Yes, i have one more cable, but it's reliable and does the job perfectly.

    I purchased this to connect my iMac to another monitor. The display worked perfectly. The only problem was that it wanted to force the sound to the monitor. Therefore, my iMac speakers would no longer play any sound. I think there is a way to make this work, but nothing I was willing to do. I ended up purchasing a VGA to mini DisplayPort adapter and kept it moving. However, for someone that just needs video it would be perfect.

    This cord made it easy to use my MacBook Air on my secondary monitor via hdmi. It is nice to have hdmi vs other means to connect to the monitor because that gives me the ability to use any tv as a monitor as well. Since I travel a bit, this means hotel room tvs can be used. This came in handy last week when I was out of state and wanted to watch a game that was only on my local fox sports station. I streamed it on my mac while plugged into the hotel tv. Perfect!

    couodnt find anything online that would hook up my Apple MacBook Air into my tv so I went into Best Buy and picked this up. Did exactly what the guy at the store said it would. Now I can stream movies from my computer straight to my tv and even watch slideshows I created-straight from my computer. There's no lengthy process into making this work. Just connect one end into the computer, and the other end into the HDMI port and it automatically brings up whatever is on your computer.

    Great display cable for Mac Mini

    Bought this displayport to hdmi cable for my Mac Mini. It works very well. Also, the size of the displayport connector is smaller than other ones I've seen which makes it fit well behind the Mac Mini. Other displayport connectors I have are bigger and end up making it difficult to attach multiple displayports next to each other on the back of the mac mini.

    Cable needed for successful connect

    Needed cable to connect computer to LCD projector. Picked Best Buy due to needing the cable immediately. After purchase, looked up on-line to compare prices. Found that I could have purchased for a 1/5th to 1/6th the price at various common retailers! Felt that item was highly overpriced! Wondered if the price was mistakenly marked or just overpriced. Like Best Buy and the service, but if prices vary this much on items, it makes me want to try on-line first if no immediate need.

    I bought this to use with my Microsoft Surface Pro 3. It was either get this cable or get the cable with the female port and use yet another HDMI cable. I didn't want to buy two separate cables for my needs and in addition it was more expensive to purchase the two other cables together. This cable was the solution. I found it in the Apple area of the store and I believe it actually listed Apple on the box but it works for any mini display port to HDMI connection.

    For those of us still somewhat intimidated by the whole Internets and Streamers and speakers with blue teeth, it is a joy to be able to simply plug my laptop into my television set (do we still actually say "television set"?) and watch Netflix or AmazonPrime immediately (or, once I remember if it's the HDMI 1 or 2 or some such number). It may be clunkier than more tech-savvy solutions, but I can make it work, and the video quality is lovely.
