    DisplayPort to HDMI. Have an LG 34" wide 21:9 ratio monitor that needs a HDMI connection. This monitor needs to be setup on photo mode. If placed on read mode, the light hurts coming off the monitor. I thought I needed game mode for CAD, for SolidWorks, this type of PC monitor is good for the computer, you can put on a TV screen size as well. Both PC monitor and the PC works better together at max of 34 inch. And then there's VR goggles that looks like the size of a movie theater or 70 inch screen even. If you want 5 of friends on movie mode or gaming, VR goggles is getting cheaper but the virtual computer internet feature, the internet has to be fast to be live intereaction with other people in the world to play games. Maybe a server will be best for 5 graphics card and not sure how many CPUs but is more dedicated GPUs that's needed. This displayport to HDMI, today's VR just needs HDMI to see what the VR user sees. Is fast enough to see what they are looking at. AR, isn't worrisome, is just at less intensity as of a VR game. Cost less and is more for I of making stuff, then worrying of film per second gaming. The horizontal view is only 90 degrees to seeing the products in my living room. Works. Happy there. Thanks.

    Lousy

    I purchased this adapter for my oculus rift & GTX 1070. Worked fine initially but noticed some problems with connectivity from the rift, Oculus seemed to always think the HDMI was unplugged unless I manually unplugged it and plugged it back in. I thought it was possibly a problem with Oculus or possibly my video card. Over the coming months the problem degraded to the point where my Oculus would not work at all. I came to the point where I had to make a decision to troubleshoot the problem and as usual...you start with the cheapest solution (which for me was a new Displayport adapter) I went to local store and picked up a different brand which comes with a lifetime warranty for $10 cheaper and I have had NO problems since. Like most insignia products this is both inferior in quality and over priced with only a 1 year warranty that you must prove with a receipt. Never again.

    Adaptor needs tweeking

    The Insignia DisplayPort to HDMI adaptor didn't work when I plugged it into my computer and I considered returning it for a refund. I decided to see why it wasn't working and found that the male end of the adaptor has a housing that was too thick to fit into my DisplayPort so it wasn't getting fully seated into the plug because the adaptor was hitting the metal-work around the receiving plug. I had to trim the outer housing of the male plug of the adaptor to allow it to fit into my DisplayPort on my computer, at the risk of voiding my warranty. The other option was to trim the metal surrounding my DisplayPort plug and that would have been a harder and riskier job. After trimming the adaptor plug the adaptor worked as it should. But you shouldn't have to trim anything if it is made properly in the first place.

    Not too much to say about this product, other than it works great. My computer tower came with 4 display ports and one HDMI. I have 2 monitors that are only HDMI... and there lies the problem. Alas! problem solved. This adapter plugs right into a display port, then an HDMI is then connected to the adapter and the screen. Screen now displays what it needs to. I would recommend this product to anyone that needs it, or they wont be able to view what's on the computer screen. Solid product, solid build, solid no wiggle connection.

    Fine unit - DisplayPort Limitations

    DisplayPort cables are not bi-directional. For example, I presume this adapter works fine when plugged into a DisplayPort output jack on a laptop or PC. However, there is one case where it is not supported - if this item is plugged into the DisplayPort input on a monitor - it won't work - not because the unit is defective, but because the DisplayPort system does not support conversion from that direction. (I was trying to connect an HDMI output jack to DisplayPort input on a monitor, and that is not supported.)

    Bought it to set a dual display on my desktop. I'm running an ASUS Maximus IX Hero. Was already using the HDMI out for my main monitor. Grabbed this instead of an expensive HDMI splitter as neither monitor has a display port. First one I bought sent no signal.. Scared me. Almost thought I was going to have to RMA a motherboard.. Returned, very easily, for a replacement product. New one worked as soon as I plugged it in. Now I have a 28" main monitor and a 32" secondary, both of which are merely old tvs I kept after a whole home 4K upgrade. Has worked great for weeks now. Will update review if necessary.

    I purchased this adapter to try to revive an old monitor I had lying around and take advantage of it's HDMI capabilities but this adapter does not have 2 way communication capabilities so unfortunately it did not work for my project. Worse off, I purchased this adapter at the beginning of my build and didn't realize it wouldn't work until it was nearly complete. I returned to Best Buy to return the item and purchase the components I needed but it had been 15 days and apparently Best Buy won't honor returns past 14 days, so I threw it away next to the customer service register and took my business elsewhere. I won't shop at best buy again, period.

    I thought this would be a simple adapter to use, but it did not work for me. I have an HP laptop with a display port output that I wanted to show on an HDMI monitor or TV. Tried everything I could to get it to work, made sure laptop was powered, checked settings, etc. I don't have a problem with the VGA output on my laptop or using the Display Port output with a different adapter at work. Not sure if mine was just defective or what. I returned it. Best Buy is the best for returns!

    Honestly, there's not much that can be said about a DP-to-HDMI adapter. it's designed to allow you to connect a monitor that doesn't have DP inputs, to a computer that doesn't have HDMI outputs...it's that simple. There's nothing fancy, or complicated, about it. If you have a computer needing to be connected to a monitor, and the computer has a full-size DP output port, but no HDMI port...and the monitor has an HDMI input, but no full-size DP input...then you NEED this. It's (relatively) inexpensive, it does what it's supposed to do, and it does it without fail.

    Great product. Ran out of HDMI plug ins and needed alternative to plug in monitor from our desktop for gaming. Made mistake and bought $69 J5 product which is very high end for gamers. Retuned and bought Best Buy name brand for less then have the cost Insignia™ - DisplayPort-to-HE even though I am using a display port over an HDMI port on my desktop I still got the same resolution on my screen. Can't go wrong. I used both products and they produced the same results. This product is excellent for gaming and those that run too end graphic cards. Good deal.

    I was in Reserve, Louisiana and discovered that I could not connect to the monitor for the presentation I had to make the next day. Incidentally, this proves that you should always arrive early and make sure everything works. I had been assured that I could connect with what I normally carry. The Insignai DisplayPort to HDMI allowed me to hook connect and everything worked perfectly. Now I can connect to anything. Until I can’t.

    We wanted to show a video slide show during a funeral reception, and needed an adapter to go from USB to HDMI. We went into Best Buy and the associate said "they don't make them, you should buy a new laptop." After doing a quick search on my phone, and then going to the Best Buy website while in the store, we found this product. Even though the clerk stated, try it, but it will never work," we did and it worked great after also buying an HDMI cable. Best Buy has the typical big box help, but products are available if you can dispense with their "advice."

    I purchased a docking station with DisplayPort connectors only and I only had HDMI cables. I had to use my monitor immediately, so I ran to Best Buy purchase this. If I had known better, I would have bought the cable instead. This unit is a little pricey and a cable would have cost about the same. If you do not want more cables, then I would recommend a DisplayPort-to-HDMI adaptor, but you can find them cheaper and they work just as well.

    This was purchased as an open box item but was never used so it was basically new. I was attempting to save the costs of the HDMI to DisplayPort cable which seemed unusually expensive for what it was. This little adapter allowed me to use my current 4k HDMI cable and plug it in and I was up and running in less than 30 seconds. I have seen no visual degradation or loss of quality at all. This item supports 4k levels of DPI and my gaming monitor was no exception. Great lower cost option to the more costly cable.

    This is a straight forward device. No configuration, no setup, no drivers, no problems. In my case, I have two of these connected to a computer's video card in addition to a third HDMI cable. Using two of these adapters allows me to connect two 55" 1080P televisions to my existing video card in addition to my main computer monitor using existing equipment. HDMI cable from a TV to this adapter, and this plugs into the video card. No ghosting, no herringbone patterns, no signal loss. Excellent, even on a picky 55" screen.

    I had to do a little research to figure out what to use on my laptop since a "standard" HDMI cable didn't fit. Online information indicates the DisplayPort is no better or worse than and HDMI cable...it's all preference of the manufacturer. The price of this adapter was more than the cost of a DisplayPort cable, and Best Buy's selection of those was slim to none. Performance is fine. I would recommend this only if you can't find an actual DisplayPort some place else. (Timing was an issue for me. I didn't have time to look around anymore.)

    DisplayPort TO HDMI

    Posted

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    The adapter is a DisplayPort to HDMI, not the other way around. It clearly says this in the name of the product and does not try to dissuade buyers. Must Read. The product itself is 'OK' it does not support above 1080p resolutions officially and should not be used if you were planning on using something of this like for a VR headset or 4k monitor/TV, as both of those exhibit much more detail and data than 1080p.

    I bought a computer display port connector to connect my computer to an HDMI port on the TV. I thought I would never find it. It had a connector with a short wire between the computer port connector and the HDMI connector. This was not nearly as convenient as one I had bought before which just had computer connector on one side and an HDMI connector on the other end without any wire. It works fine, but it cost just as much as one with a much longer wire and was just as expensive as an HDMI cable.

    So when you need an adapter like this in a hurry, Best Buy is the best option! The adapter does exactly what it should. It plays video perfectly. I bought this because my PC video card only had 1 HDMI out and I bought an Oculus Rift that required 2...one for the monitor of your PC and one for the goggles. I adapted the display port out to HDMI and my troubles were over. Good price, not the best but good. I needed it that day, so you can't beat the convenience. Thanks Best Buy

    Many laptops (my Dell being one) have a display port rather that an HDMI port. If I wanted to watch my presentation or movies I'd downloaded in the old hotel room, I had to at least convert to HDMI. This adapter plus a standard HDMI cable, did an excellent job in the hotels that allowed an external connection and gave me a backup in case the client didn't have exactly the right setup for that presentation...
