    Does the job and makes connecting a breeze

    This adapter allows the docking station for your surface to attach to any monitor you can hook up an HDMI cable to. It also gives you the freedom to have the docking station a good distance from any monitor and not have to crawl behind the monitor to connect or disconnect HDMI cables each time you want to connect. Connect to the monitor one time, plug it into the surface docking station and whatever is on your surface is on your monitor. Simple and fast.

    Good 60hz 4K Adapter.

    I purchased this adapter to connect to my iMac mini displayport to connect my 4K TV. Seems to be a really good adapter, but obviously I believe it plays well with Microsoft stuff better than with Mac stuff, which is to be expected and not surprising at all. But I do believe it fulfills its purpose for what it's for and it is a good adapter. Just make sure that your iMac is recent enough that it's mini displayport is like v1.2 and supports at least 60 Hz to take advantage of what this adapter does.

    I have had cheaper surface converts but the build quality isn’t any where close. I know it is expensive, however I have never had an issue using it (can’t say the same for cheaper options) and the build quality is the best. I travel 90% for work with this packed along every time. And the physical condition is better than people in my office who infrequently travel wth cheaper options.

    Works perfect, but hate the need for it

    This is the ONLY solution if you want true 4k 30fps HDMI off of your MS Surface Display Port. Tried 2 highly rated alternatives on Amazon, but they did not work or were inconsistent. Just wish that Microsoft had a more standard option, or if they delivered the Type-C adapter a year ago and for a reasonable price.

    Works Perfectly

    There's nothing really particularly interesting about a dongle, but this does the job perfectly. I use it to connect my Microsoft Surface Pro 4 to a 32" TV as an extension monitor when I need LOTS of extra screen real estate. Images are as crisp as they can be via HDMI (of course, the Surface's screen resolution is WAY higher than the TV's, but I knew that going in). Overall, it works like a charm.

    Works well.I thought I needed this to get it to transmit Audio and Video from the Surface to my Projector and Surround Sound system but turns out it's a setting you need to change and really any adapter should do the trick. Buy if you want something good and reliable but realize there are other options out there.

    This adapter serves its purpose as advertised. Until corporate-like conference rooms change their standard, this will be needed. Wanted to use my surface for a meeting but only HDMI cables were available. Pulled my surface mini adapter out and it worked like a charm. Killed the meeting!

    This mini display port to HDMI adapter cable works perfectly when connecting the Surface dock to an HDMI TV monitor. It also transfers audio, along with the video signal. For some reason, it was REALLY tight trying to plug the HDMI cable into this female adapter plug, but it eventually wiggled in with some extra force.

    I bought this adapter to add HDMI display capability to my Surface Book. Since thus is a Microsoft product, there were no compatibility issues. Paired with a 12' cable, I have used it successfully in several different settings. Would like to see Microsoft come out with a dual SVGA/HDMI adapter. For now, this works as advertised without any problems.

    This cable was great. Worked exactly like it should. Broadcasting my surface pro onto TV. I returned only because of cost. I felt it was a little too expensive for the amount of time I would be using. If you would be using this a lot then it’s great and I would recommend buying

    I have been using this to project onto a wall with a projector. The quality does not take a hit at all. The same quality that our good projector projects it receives by using this adapter. I am very happy so far. It is not going to break anytime soon. It looks like it will last for quite a while.

    I was able to plug this into my Surface Pro and a HDMI cable from the TV and use it right away. It was very easy to display a screen from the Surface pro to the TV for better viewing by large group of family members.

    This is an extension onto the standard cable. My new computer only has the mini connection so I bought this adapter. The larger screen doesn't look as sharp as with my old computer and the standard video end, but I don't know if it's the new computer or the adapter. Still, it works so...

    This adapter is necessary for anyone using a Microsoft Suface or Macbook to conduct presentations using HDMI as standard HDMI cords do not fut these devices. It is simple to use and fitss well into the device and standard HDMI cord.

    This is just what I needed to use on my surface pro. While I appreciate the portability of my surface I still like having a large screen to look at when I'm in my office. It works great and it's not that expensive.

    Got to have this device if you have the MS SurfaceBook or other Surface products. Dongles are the way at this time to keep connectivity in multiple situations. Works and made well. Easy to use to connect to a tv, projector or monitor.

    Bought this to be able to add an external monitor to use with a Microsoft Surface Book. You can add a wireless Keyboard and Mouse to a Surface Book and fold th tablet and use an external monitor as the primary screen. Simple to use no set up required for the adapter.

    Aside from the fact that I despise the whole "proprietary connector" tendency of Apple/Microsoft/et al, the product itself does not fail to do what it promises to deliver, even if it is overpriced for what it is.

    My Microsoft book uses these as it only has mini display port. Wish the computer came with these but this product has worked great. I’ve purchased multiple over the years so I’m set up wherever I’m docked

    I was having an issue with connecting my Surface Pro 4 to my projector, but this cord made that process so much easier. I can also use it to connect my Surface Pro to my TV. Great product. A little too expensive though, It shouldn't be quite so much.
