    Not for the Surface PRO!

    This product certainly has the high quality that you expect from Microsoft's surface line of products. I'm sure there's cheaper adapters out there but I certainly do enjoy the look and feel of it. Now I originally bought this for my Surface Pro 2 tablet. I must not have read the package carefully enough. Because this cable will NOT fit into a Pro. As I suspected this is for the RT model. So, I gave it to my younger sibling, who has the Surface RT, and it worked just fine. Next time I'll learn to read the box better. Other than that it's a great adapter that goes well with the look of Microsoft's surface line.

    Bought this product so I can stream movies and shows to my flat screen tv. 1080p looks great and easy to use. Found that it works best using split screen to give the highest quality pic from tablet to HD TV. I was spending $6 per week on movies at redbox now i have been using this product solely and already saved myself more in the cost of movie rentals than the adapter cord cost. Well worth it. Great for presentations as well: PowerPoint, word, etc.

    The cable is fine, and it works as intended. The only issue is why it is really needed at all. This cable fits into the dock fine, but it's not a secure connection, and I've had multiple times where my second monitor won't come on, but come to find out it's just because the cable has come loose. Good cable, and works...but yeah...not sure why the connection isn't sturdier.

    I use this cable to watch movies from my surface on my tv or do spreadsheets and other documents on a bigger tv screen. It doesnt transfer the audio over to the tv but i use my speakers to make it louder. Works for the Surface 2 Rt. You will need to buy or have a HDMI cable to complete the connection over to the tv or whatever you are using

    I purchased this product to use with company presentations but after purchasing found that it does not work well with many computers. Does work with the Surface Pro 2 and 3 but not well with any of my Lenovo of Dell laptops I have. Looks like it would be great for home use but not in the office.

    Much better than the Best Buy generic one. I had a dynex adapter and it started shorting out. I purchased the Microsoft one and immediately I could see that my picture quality was much better and it’s lasted for years.

    Was Sold the wrong Item

    This item could not be used with this computer. I needed a VGA adaptor. The sales staff was inept on this matter. It turns out this model had been equipped with a port exactly like that of a MAC, so needed a MAC adapter. It took a return trip to the "bricks and mortar" to rectify the situation.

    I travel quite a bit and bought this because I love watching movies on my Surface, but hate having to hold it in my lap the entire time. With this cable, I'm able to hook this directly to the Hotel TV and use it as my Computer Screen or to watch and control movie while I'm away from home.

    Buyer beware, when purchasing this item that you have the correct one as the surface 2 has the mini usb port and the surface pro 2 has the standard usb hub (larger). The incorrect cable can damage your usb port so KNOW what style port your device has..

    The price for this wire adaptor is way too expensive. The downside of it is that every time you plug it in to the TV you have to redirect the sound to the TV speakers which is just an added step vs plug in and go.

    Great cable to have for the Surface Pro 3

    I bought this cable so I could connect my Surface Pro 3 to HDTV and it works great. As soon as I plug the AV adapter to my TV's HDMI cable the TV picks it up and it automatically shows on the TV screen.

    Surface and Surface 2 Adapter

    This is the only adapter to the Surface and Surface 2 because it is designed to fit the slanted edge of the Surface. Others just won't fit or won't fit well enough to stay attached.

    It was suggested by one of the BestBuy guys that I needed this for my setup. He was wrong, I blame myself because I am tech knowledgeable person and I followed his suggestion without checking it out.

    To get video out to an external screen from your surface pro 3, you will need this cable. However, despite the lack of choices, it works as intended and gets the video feed where you want it to go.

    I loved how I could use a input on my television as a designated "computer channel". This adapter is very well constructed and transfers the best quality picture.

    Bought this so that we could watch a movie on the TV in our hotel. Very simple to use and small enough to not take up too much room in smaller bags or cases for your Surface.

    I bought this to watch movies on my big screen, it costs more than it should, but it works as advertised. A little quirky set up on the Surface, but not the products fault.

    Easy to connect Surface to HDTV (and other devices). Small form factor of tablet and use of this adapter makes it much easier to carry around and display digital content.
