    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.

    Worked for video, but not audio

    I purchased this to connect a Surface Pro to my parents tv while visiting for the holidays. The packaging says it's intended for Mac products, but I figured all mini display ports should be the same, right? Well, we were able to get video, but no audio so I'm not sure if it was an issue with the adapter or the TV (my dad has a complicated sound system). Found another alternative so am still unsure if it actually works.

    I purchased this product to use it with Macbook Air for teaching in my classroom. It worked ok for a few days. But then suddenly stopped working. Restarted, Plugging/unplugging did not fix it. Worked ok on my macbook pro. After SMC reset it started working again on the macbook air. It happens every few days and smc reset fixes it every time. Hope it helps anyone facing the similar issue.

    Decent Adapter

    This Adapter isn't quite the quality of the Apple original, but is quite a bit more reasonable in price. My main drawback is when used with a docking station, the hard plastic end piece is hard to secure with the set screw without splitting the plastic. A soft rubbery end piece like the Apple product would be appreciated. If you aren't using it in a docking setup, then it is not an issue at all.

    This is another adapter product that just doesn't last. Seems like they make these so they won't last and you have to rebuy one.. My thought is they should last the life of your product, and products should also last- but to many things are disposable. When you have to replace these adapters(like with MOST electronics) it's expensive to replace, and is not good for the environment.

    Works well for MacBook Pro to connect to a computer monitor for work that can be disconnected at any time for off site work with laptop but reconnect for in office desk work. Wished Best Buy could sell lightning port to hdmi for iPad Pro to hdmi for connection to monitor or tv for streaming at a more reasonable price. I do feel the adapters are way too pricey for cables.

    Too soon to tell

    The problem with these adapters is often longevity. While they work fine at first, they may work for 2 years, 2 month, or 2 weeks. It's impossible to predict. So far (2 months), my adapters are working fine. But like HDMI cable, you never know, and when it goes, it's without warning. Both of these are replacements.

    Sometimes the device was slow in responding after being connected to the laptop and the TV. The sound going through the TV didn't always come on right away, and then would suddenly blare after fidgeting with the device. We couldn't figure out what made it decide whether or not to produce sound. It was inconsistent.

    Lots of noise

    Running this with a brand new Microsoft Surface Pro 4. Had a lot of little red lines which ran horizontally across the screen. This was especially prevalent in Microsoft Word. Switched over to a dedicated cable without the need for an adapter and the problem went away.

    I needed this fast for a business trip, and did not have time to wait on shipping from another on-line vendor, so I paid the high price. It works fine with no issues, but I found a better quality product on the web for 1/2 the price. Best Buy charges too much for adapters and cables.

    Does not work to send screen to 27in iMac

    My biggest issue is that the employee at bestbuy told me this would work with my laptop to use the iMac as an external display, not even close, it only works leaving the iMac to an external display. It works great as creating an option for an external display.

    It does work but it gets flaky on an older Surface Book vs a newer Surface Book. I went with a Belkin with 4K support and it works fine with both laptops. I would recommend this for newer laptops.

    Great unless you want sound

    I purchased the HDMI hookups, not knowing I'd have to buy two separate cords but that's beside the point. This was for my MacBook. Apparently, sound is not transferred to the tv so you have to rely on the computer's sound...not happy with that part.

    I was trying to hard wire my TV as a display and I don't know if my Mac was to old or what but I couldn't get any audio from my TV only the Mac. If you plan on getting it make sure you do more research than I did. (I did about 5 mins ha)

    Was given this item by a Sales Associate for use with the Surface RT, as they said it would work and well it didn't ports completely wrong, so returned it with no issue though, but make sure you get what you ask for not something that might work.

    Yes, I checked every setting and made sure they were all correct, but regardless this made my MacBook Air look blurry on my monitor. When using AirPlay via Apple TV it looks fine, but connecting this cable made it blurry

    functional adapter but signal may have issues

    My experience is that the signal from computer to monitor will fairly regularly cut out from time to time, and leave the monitor with no image.Work arounds like turnoff/on seem to fix the situation, but it gets old after a bit.

    The quality of this adaptor is not nearly as good as the apple product. If you will only use t once in awhile, it works. If you will be using this all the time, spend a few dollars more for the apple adaptor.

    It definitely does the job but I have one monitor set up through this and the other through the HDMI lead. There is no difference in quality. I would opt for a cheaper version or a HDMI adapted if I was to purchase again.
