    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

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This cable is just what I needed. It's a little more expensive than buying just an adapter and a cheap HDMI cable, but Id rather pay a little more to not have a big bulky adapter so it looks a little cleaner. The wire is a little thin compared to my other HDMI cables, but it isn't too big of a problem because it does a great job sending video to the monitor (haven't used the sound function so I can't really comment on the sound quality). Over all a great cable, would recommend!

    Easy connection of your Mac to an HDMI display

    I've been using a cable to transform the mini display port to HDMI and a HDMI cable from there to my external display. This works, but the adapter cable sometimes gets lost and requires disconnecting everything and reconnecting it. So, for my home-office connection, I decided to relegate the adapter to travel and the cable to my external display and that has worked much better. It's also less bulk on the desk overall.

    I got this cable for an old MacBook Pro. I was able to easily connect from the Mini Display port to the HDMI port and the video transferred with no problem. When using this cable be sure to check the sound settings on the Mac to ensure you are routing the audio to your HDMI device; otherwise it plays thru the Mac's speakers.

    I purchased this Mini displayPort to HDMI cable to add a third monitor to my laptop when using it in my home office. Previously I had to use a USB to VGA Connector for my third monitor since my HDMI port was used for a second monitor. Now my machine's video card recognizes my two external monitors correctly to extend my desktop. It worked like a charm on my PC with no need for additional drivers.

    Several months back, while traveling, I found that I was lacking a cable to connect my laptop to the internet at a hotel. After that, I stocked my case with various cables just in case... Last week while on another trip, I used the mini DisplayPort-to-HDMI Cable for connection, and we were able watch a DVD on a big screen TV in our hotel room. I was glad I had it in my laptop case. It worked well and priced right.

    I bought this to connect my Xbox to my new FHD monitor so I wouldn’t have to move the Xbox from where it is in my house. I have not seen any reduction in quality or connection speed between this and the one that came with the Xbox. Worth the buy!
