    It works

    The reason I gave this 3 stars is not because it doesn't work because it does work. The problem is if I do not use this over priced adapter, I am not able to get more then 2 monitors to work with my Surface Dock and my Surface Book 2. I want to use 2 external monitors and the Surface Monitor. Problem is if I do not use the MS Adapter, I can only use 2 total monitors. If this adapter wasn't $60, I would be fine with it.

    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.

    Didn't support 4k @ 60 hertz

    I returned this. I decided to spend a little more money on a nicer cable hoping it would support 4k @ 60 hertz. Unfortunately, I couldn't get it to work and I plugged it into my monitor's 4k @ 60 herts HDMI port. I kind of wish cables and standards were better defined, more consistent, and easier to understand. I don't recommend this product for those seeking 4k resolution.

    I could not figure out how to hook up the hdmi from my laptop to my smart TV, because the only hdmi cable I had was for a larger opening. That is, until someone showed me how I needed to get this item, with the micro for the mini port I have. And it works just great. Don't know how I got along without having the ability to watch streaming from my computer to the TV.

    Expensive but excellent

    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.

    Surface Mini Display Port

    While there might be other brands with a lower cost, I decided to keep all my computer connections Microsoft to go with my Surface. It works perfect and I know it'll last. Every time I try to save money with something cheaper, I just end up replacing it sooner then later. So might as well buy quality the first time.

    The night before a meeting held at my house, I realized I needed this cable to connect my laptop to my super-sized TV so I could display photos during the meeting. Best Buy had one in stock, so I ordered it online and made it to the store to pick it up just before closing. The cable worked perfectly and saved the day!

    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.

    I teach-some places won't let me hook up Chromecast to their tv. With this little connector, I can plug right into the HDMI port of their tv, and students can see what I'm doing on my laptop. Thanks to the tech woman at Best Buy who looked up what kind of connector would work with my laptop.

    $30 to save my eyesight well worth it. I bought this because I use a Surface Pro for work which is great for its portability I can take it on job sites and do work while I'm sitting monitoring a crew. But not so great when I'm in the office all day now I have a nice big monitor to look at

    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.

    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.

    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 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!

    I bought this so that I can use my laptop to stream movies, online sites on my TV with the hdmi and screen looks great BUT the audio comes from the laptop and not the TV. That's the only reason it's not worth buying and the 4 start rating

    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.

    Keep your HDMI compatible external computer monitor. Works well as a portable accessory; or connect it more permanently to the Surface book docking station at your work desk for immediate use when you launch your Suface-book computer,

    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
