    Adapter does NOT work with Mac nor MacBook Pro

    I bought this thunderbolt to HDMI adapter (recommended buy sales guy) in conjunction of the 27" Mac 5k screen so I could display on a second screen, but it did not work.. I also tried it with a MacBook Pro with the same results... how do I know it doesn't work?? Talked to Mac technical people and they couldn't make it work they had me do different things, but no luck. Finally I got a different cable (not an adapter) that they sell on the apple website and all I had to do is connect it and started working.. only reason I gave it a 1 star is because it did not work with the my computers, the quality look good and it may work just fine with other computers.

    Don't use with MacBooks.

    Do not purchase if you have a macbook. I have the Macbook Air and was hesitant about buying this because I know that usually non-apple products don't work with apple products but I didn't want to buy the apple product since it wasn't in stock the day I purchased this one. It will work for a short period of time but then will stop working entirely and waste the money that should have went to just buying the apple converter. I even asked a Best Buy associate if it would work the same as Apple and he said it would, however he was clearly wrong. As a college student I don't have a lot of money just to be wasted down the drain by crappy products, so if you want something to last you should just make the investment with apple products.

    Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't

    Just like the title says. It started out working and then after 2 weeks or so it would only work once in a while. I take my laptop with me everyday so it gets unplugged in the morning when I leave and plugged back in at night when I get home everyday. It got to where the monitor wouldn't come back on and the only way to get it to work was to restart my Mac Air. Total pita. I ended up buying the same adapter made by Mac and never had any issues with it. Save your money with this and just start off with the Mac built one and save the headache.

    This was exactly what was needed. Without it we would not have been able to view a slideshow. Can still be connected, but it was slow, choppy & the A/V totally out of sync(hilariously)! Hooking up the Laptop to a Projector using this solved all that instantly!! Worked so good, even the venue manager wanted to know buy one & where he could get it. Saved the day, for a Special Occasion for TWO VERY SPECIAL PEOPLE!!!! Great & useful product that worked exactly like it was supposed too. But still better than I had believed it would.

    I bought this on sale so I only paid about 15 bucks for the item. I have bought several similar items before for less but they have all broke or stopped working after 1 or 2 uses. This is a little more pricy but definitely worth it. I have used it several times and have traveled abroad with it and haven't had any issues with it. I use it primarily for my surface pro 3 and the picture quality is great! My only complaint is that when transmitting data to certain tvs, the aspect ration changes and it doesn't transmit full screen video which is not too big of deal depending on what you are watching (ex: watching a movie on 60in.+ tv is fine). Other than that, its a great product.

    Tried two different Macbook Air's, locked up both

    Tried with two different Macbook Air's purchased over a year a part. Laptop display goes flips off and on then stays black, no signal to TV, keyboard lights on. Big apple logo on top of case on with lid closed! Had to hold power button to reboot. Tried several cables, with and without HDMI switch connected to Mitsubishi TV. Tried Belkin adapter, it just worked. Laptop screen flickers off then comes right back on. Can select mirror or different displays. Tried with my mom's TV, it still worked. Tried the Insignia, locked up again. Pretty confident the Insignia adapter caused lock up. Sound also worked through TV as expected. Very happy with the FC2D024BT also sold at Best Buy.

    Good Product, but faulty construction

    After purchasing a Surface Pro 3, we shortly discovered we could not use the Pro with our Power Point Projector (hence the lack of a wireless connection from the projector) so we were looking for Mini DisplayPort-to-HDMI Adapter. One of the reps from Best Buy suggested one from Insignia since it was the same and a little less $$$. We used it the first Sunday for our services, worked great (still works great), however, one of my staff noticed when he pulled the HDMI connector out of the Mini DisplayPort-to-HDMI Adapter, also came apart the housing. It still works, just need to go back to Best Buy and replace this faulty item.

    I'm a windows guy, the gf is a mac girl. Being such I didn't know I couldn't just hook up her laptop to the tv via an HDMI cable and kept forgetting each time I would go stay there. This was a problem because she didn't have cable and I needed something to keep me busy. This is where my digital movie library would have came in handy. I finally bought this, it plugged right in and turned her mac into something almost as good as my windows (<~~sarcasm . . . kinda.) This allowed me to access everything on her laptop but be able to watch it on the tv. SAVED ME FROM GOING OUT OF MY MIND!

    Not an ACTIVE display port adapter

    Purchased to add a third monitor to my PC ( Needed an ACTIVE adapter to be able to use three PC monitors to enable EYEFINITY on my Alienware PC / AMD Crossfire graphics cards.)... This is a PASSIVE adapter, so it's useless to me. I purchased this adapter based on other reviews on here that said it was an ACTIVE adapter... they were wrong. I will be returning tomorrow since I found a cheaper/better solution on Amazon.

    DO NOT BUY

    unsatisfied

    I bought this adapter because it was the only one best buy had, i came home excited to use it and it did not work at all. At first i though it might be my TV or computer but it wasn't. I tried it on my roommates computer and TV, it still didn't work. I went back to best buy thinking it might have just been that one so i returned it and got a new one. That one didn't work either. My roommate has a rocketfish which i guess is the old brand and it works perfectly. Very unsatisfied especially having to drive 20 mins there and back twice only to still not have a working product.

    Absolutely fantastic SmartTV.

    Absolutely fantastic Smart TV! 55" and delightful to watch. I added a sound bar to enhance the audio quality. (TV's now a days don't really put big speakers in them). ~ You may want a Samsung Sound Bar, or buy the large portable BOSE box. ~ I got the large BOSE box because its small, but really puts out the sound. Bass and treble are excellent! ~ The TV has Equalizer settings, so all is adjustable. ~ In summary, for the features, exceptional picture quality, and above all the great price at Best Buy you can't go wrong!

    I had seen the reviews and saw they were good so we purchased it. It worked great one time and afterwards it stopped on one of my TVs it began blinking like it was trying to get a signal but it couldn't and then stopped working completely. I even tried 3 different hdmi cables and have up with that tv. I tried my living room tv and it worked better but every now and then it would lose the image. I returned it and got the next price up which was like $5 more. That one works great in my living room tv but I think my other tv got ruined no hdmi connection works any longer.

    Sometimes Great, Sometimes Not

    I have very mixed thoughts about this HDMI adapter. This cord does not work well with some smart TVs. For example, on one of my TVs, the cord often pauses the movie that I am trying to watch, freezes my laptop, or restarts my laptop completely. This is a commonly reoccurring problem for me. However, on another TV that I own, the cord works flawlessly. The picture quality is great, and the cord serves its purpose. Ultimately, it depends on the type of TV that is being used with this adapter. Sometimes it works great, but other times, not so well.

    Hooked my MacBook Air to my large Samsung HDTV

    Allowed me to project trip pictures onto my large screen TV from my MacBook. Had always done it from a DELL or HP in the past but clearly needed an intermediate connector and was so happy to get the right part from the very helpful salesperson which allowed me to easily use my MacBook Air with a normal HDM1 adapter. He sold me the right thing and explained well how to use it.

    OK, but the PNY brand worked better

    I bought this to replace an older PNY adapter. I was told that the old adapter was the reason that I was not getting 4k from my computer to my new HDMI monitor. This model didn't work any better and sometimes the screen would go black and glitch ad 1080. I ended up switching back to the PNY and returned the Insignia brand. Ironically the guy behind me in the return line was also returning a similar Insignia adapter. Perhaps up the QA on your store brand Best Buy?

    We were sold this device to be an adapter between a computer with a Mini DisplayPort port to a TV with an HDMI input. We needed a cable approximately 16 feet long and this was suggested as a transition from the computer to another HDMI-to-HDMI longer cable. We found the correct Mini DisplayPort-to-HDMI longer cable elsewhere and didn’t need to use this short adapter so we returned it.

    I visited Best Buy to try to find an adapter to go from my Surface Pro 3 to an HDMI cable so I could play movies on Hotel flat screens. After wandering all around Best Buy I finally asked in a very loud voice can SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP ME!. I was met immediately by a staff member who took me around to all the places I had already visited. Finally another more senior staff member suggested what I was looking for was actually a Mini DisplayPort-to-HDMI Adapter. Guess what... we had to go to the Apple section to find it. It works well and I am satisfied.

    I purchased this to use with my Macbook Pro, I used an HDMI cable that I had verified to work. plugged into a flat panel TV that had a working port, trouble shooting for several hours, online with Apple care for almost an hour and couldn't make it work. I picked up a different adapter at the Post Exchange, plugged it in and had zero issues. I later asked a friend to try it with his Macbook and no luck. Judging by the reviews it would appear I may have just picked up a bad one, but buyer beware on this one.

    HDMI for MS Surface RT

    I have been looking for a way to connect my MS Surface RT to an external monitor via hdmi and I heard my only option was to purchase the connector directly from Microsoft. I did some Youtube researching and finally found someone who said that they used a brand other than Microsoft and got their Surface RT to work. I purchased this item because the price was perfect and it was suggested to work. Fortunately it did work and now I enjoy movies on the go all the time! Great product at a great price.
