    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.

    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!

    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’ve been using this HDMI adapter for my MacBook Air to watch Netflix and I get a message that says there is a display error sometimes when I plug the adapter in and the movie is already playing. Sometimes the message occurs in the middle of the movie which can be annoying as I’ll have to unplug and reinsert the cord, but I generally do not have viewing or audio problems—whatever my Mac plays or sounds is transferred to my TV when it is used.

    Purchased one of these but it did not work correctly. My computer saw the connected monitor and adjusted settings accordingly, but no video out. Took the item and my computer to best buy to figure out the problem. While the store was busy someone did get around to helping me as I had connected the device to an in store monitor. Once attended to, the representative realized my first device was defective, and replaced it with another which worked perfectly. No problem, just time wasted.

    I bought this because I wanted to stream work out videos to my tv instead of watching on my small laptop screen. This device lets you watch whatever you are watching on your laptop on your tv. Just plug one end into computer and other the tv and whala! Only downside is that the cord isn't long enough. You have to get an extender or hope your hdmi cable is long enough to reach to your laptop.

    probably as good as Apple's $40 option

    I usually go for the Apple branded accessories, but for something small like this it's crazy to pay $40 for Apple's own hdmi adapter, especially for an 8 year-old laptop, when this little guy works perfectly well. Connected instantly to our new monitor, and has not caused any issues since. Build quality seems durable for what it's meant to do. A+

    This adapter seems to do the job just fine. I ended up returning this for the more expensive Microsoft version since it was for a Surface Pro 4....it is so difficult to tell if the Microsoft version does anything more or different. Also difficult to know if this works with 4K HD TVs and monitors at the various refresh rates...BestBuy staff did not know either. Which the product specs/packaging was more informative.

    Perfect Price for a Necessary Product

    I was in need of a short HDMI adapter for my Surface. I do a lot of traveling and presentations and I did not see the value in paying the higher price for the Microsoft product. While the colour does not match the other products for my Surface this adapter gets the job done. It has not failed yet and it is the perfect size for fitting in my little accessory pouch for my Surface.

    A bit too expensive for such a short cable

    Leave it to Apple to charge a premium for this cable. I needed it to be able to connect my new Huion Kamvas GT-191 pen display to my 27" iMac. The pen tablet requires an HDMI connection to the computer, but the iMac has no HDMI plug, so I had to use this cable adapter to connect the HDMI cord from the pen tablet to one of the two Thunderbolt ports in the back of my iMac. And it works perfectly.

    The adaptor works reliably and can be used when you need to connect your MacBook for presentations. The resolution is good and you are able to present in the quality you intended. The only thing is that the HDMI connector side of the adaptor feels a bit snug, and takes a second to securely fit. I often keep the HDMI cord attached already so as to not waste much time setting up.

    I wanted to go from an hdmi to mini display port so I could hook my Macbook pro or my lenovo work computer to my monitor at home. I already had an hdmi to hdmi cable, so this made things work for me. I later set up a monitor in another location for the same purpose and bought a Belkin cable that went from hdmi to mini display without an adapter needed. I like the i cable solution better.

    Just bought a new TV and wanted to hook up my MacBook Pro to a 40" TV. The Somewhat-Smart-TV did not have Spotify on it, nor CW Seed [Gotta watch Whose Line is it Anyways reruns!], so this was a super easy way to bypass the missing apps and watch it on a big screen! I also design, so it was especially easy to see my work on a huge screen, thanks to this wonderful adaptor.

    It's happened to me with Netflix and Chromecast and other dongles to talk to computers and tv sets at the same time. The dongle has an hdmi input, great, good quality, but the dongle is just a little too big and won't fit. You don't want to bend it. This does what needs to be done, and for not-too-too-much, especially open box

    I was a bit overwhelmed at the prices these little dongles were going for, but this one, the cheapest I could find at the time, seemed to be of good quality. It sits in both ports solidly, never losing connection. I did have a time getting it to work as a second screen for my Surface Pro 3. You may have to take it out put it back in a few times to get it to recognize it.

    NOT for dual monitors

    These adapters are passive. Will not work with dual HDMI monitors and Surface docking stations - had all kinds of issues with monitors (flashing, changing settings, etc.). Discovered that we needed ACTIVE not PASSIVE adapters. Works fine for docking just one monitor. I would NOT recommend for dual monitors, I would recommend for single monitors.

    Couldn't find an Apple brand thunderbolt to HDMI adapter. BESTBUY associate found the insignia brand adapter. Works fine, enabling me to output my 11 inch MacBook Air to a 19 inch TV with an HDMI cable input. Set the video controls for mirroring and adjust the underscan level for proper screen fit and that's all there is to it

    I bought one originally a year ago, then was out of town and bought a second one so I could watch movies in the hotel room because I left my original at home. The first one works great and has been going strong for almost a year now, the "new" one or second one stop working after a week, so if you get one that works it's totally worth the 25 bucks.

    Cable works great connected to my 15" MacBook retina. There seems to be a slight delay about 1/2 second when typing to response on my Samsung smart TV. I don't really use my tv other than for streaming video content from safari so it will suffice. An older Mac tv is pretty inexpensive so that could be the route you would take to eliminate wires
