    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 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 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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Microsoft Connection to project your screen from your Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) model to a TV. Just hook it up using any length HDMI cable and select duplicate screen from the project setting menu and get your screen duplicated on any size TV

    What can I say. It works? Not cheap but converter that are cheat sometimes don’t work well. EDID, HDCP etc can cause issues with cheap cables and consumers that do not understand the technical ramifications of inexpensive cables

    It’s a bit expensive but it works great with Surface devices and hasn’t caused any issues with damaged mDP connectors. With other non-brand name devices is the only thing that points to damaged mDP connectors on Surface devices.

    These cables are absolutely essential if you want to send video or show PowerPoints from your Surface or many other computers on large screen televisions and many monitors. This one works perfectly!

    This product, allows an easy to use interface between my new Surface Pro and my large panoramic display at home. It gives me the ability to smoothly edit and view the videos I am creating for school by giving me a second monitor to view the preview on.

    Its a docking station for the surface line of products. It works as advertised. We connect two monitors to the surface, and use the surface itself as a third - but small - monitor.

    Nice Quality, but over priced

    Does what it should do, but the amount microsoft charges for a passive usb to hdmi connection is kinda ridiculous. But if you payed the premium for a surface pro, you don't have much of a choice for connectivity.
