    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.

    Works Good, but not what I needed

    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.

    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.

    Works well but too short

    It was meant to work with my Macbook 13'. At the very beginning I had problems with it because my Mac was not recognizing my Samsung TV, but then I found out that the problem was due to a bug of El Capitan OSX. Once the bug was solved, everything worked flawlessly. The only downside of this cable is that it's really too short for what I needed. And honestly too expensive (I'm never going to spend 70 bucks or more for a longer cable).

    Was in need of a Mini DisplayPort to HDMI cable so I could connect my MacBook Air to my TV. Works as expected, pretty straightforward. When using a previous cable that was of cheaper price and quality, the signal would get lost whenever I would bring my laptop out of sleep, but I haven't experienced anything like that at all with this cable. Sure this cable costs a bit more but it's essentially guaranteed to work.

    This was more of a spur of the moment purchase. I needed a mini to full HDMI to connect my Mac to an older plasma 42" so I could stream movies for the children. The Insgnia did just the trick without breaking the bank. Not recommended if you're looking for that 4K experience, but handles standard and 720 HD very well be it movies or working with applications on a larger screen. Audio was sufficient.

    This connector is sooooooo amazing! It lets the computer talk to the TV so that the moving pictures show up! I hear that there are little drone ants inside the cable that carry the data packets back and forth. Seriously people its an HDMI connector. If it didn't work, I would have brought it back.

    I purchased this in order to display items from my Surface to a television. It works great - shows pictures in good quality and handled streaming shows well. You did have to adjust the volume a bit usually from what the TV was on - came in quieter. But otherwise worked fine.

    Excellent choice for connecting your tablet to your monitor or tv. I had bought another similar product online, but the cable ran hot! This cable is something where you get what you paid for. Super satisfied with the performance and quality construction.

    I bought this for use with an Apple Mac book and have found it to be better than athe apple branded adapters. This cable was the mini display oort to HDMI which allows me to connect directly to the HDMI port with just this cable. Decent quality and worth the price to be dongleless.

    Solid construction and good performance! Much better than the gold plated cable I bought online from a 3rd party vendor. Cable is flexible, good length and connectors fit snug so it's a great choice. Plus, unlike my previous cable it does not get hot.

    I use this cable to mirror or extend the display of my Microsoft Surface Pro 2. It is real easy to pack up and easy to connect my devices without the use of multiple dongles. It does however limit the true power of mini DisplayPort with its max res of 1920x1200.

    If you need to connect your Mac to a TV this works well. I use it to stream from my Mac to my TV. Video is good, but not great. If you just want to see things on the big screen it does fine, If you're a video geek, you might want one that's a little beefier.

    Good. Serves the purpose perfectly. I wanted to walk into a store & have this item in my hand instantly as I needed it for work immediatley. It was easy to find. Price was okay considering these are all over the market.

    Bought the cable to hook up an external monitor to a surface dock. Worked well, the HDMI plug was a little bulkier than I was anticipating but it still fit and worked well. The box said for Mac but it works with PC.

    Bought this because my mother in law wanted to watch the opening ceremony of Olympics live. I stopped by the near by store and bought one of these. Works properly, no problem at all. Only concern is that it is a bit pricy.

    It’s works, did what I wanted it too, and I’m keeping it for future activities that require the need for more than one USB port.

    It is almost an apple product exclusively. It does the job done but a very high cost. Better to go with this option rather using a dongle. Simple and easy way to connect your mini display port Macbook to your HDTV
