    Great pairing with the Surface Pro for presenting

    If you are looking to hook your Surface Pro 2 up to a TV, projector, or external monitor via HDMI... This mini display port to to HDMI adapter is just what you want. It works flawlessly and doesn't have any issues like some of the other brand adapters I've tried. Many of the other non-Microsoft brands do not compensate for the angle that is needed to make a secure connection on the Surface Pro 2 at the mini display port. This adapter was made for the Surface Pro 2 and has the angle which makes it fit perfect. It will not lose connection when bumped like the other adapters without the angle at mini display plug end. Do yourself a favor and buy this one and not a non-Microsoft brand adapter.

    Don't waste time buying generic

    Even though Belking and other manufacturers might make an adapter that serves the same purpose, I highly recommend that if you have a Surface Pro 3, just spend the extra money on this one. The fitment is absolutely perfect, as compared to the Belkin I had tried previously. This takes away from the headache of making sure that the adapter doesn't fall out, since the way that Microsoft designed it really does fit like a glove and you won't have to worry about it fall off the dock that you have it plugged into. Even though I typically don't mind going with generic adapters in some cases, I suggest against it if you're using the Surface Pro 3 dock.

    Surface Pro and RT use different cables

    I found both cables and was going to choose the cheapest one (the one for RT), but a friend I was with told me they were different, which I didn't believe, so we asked. Yes, the ports for the Surface RT and the Surface Pro are different. That doesn't make much sense to me, but it is what it is. Just be careful to check which cable you need and if in doubt, have them open the box. It doesn't hurt to check between versions as well because in the future they might go to another type of port.

    I use my Microsoft Surface 1 laptop a lot to give presentations. I prefer using the Microsoft Wireless Adapter, but I'd say it only works about 70% of the time. That 30% is when this adapter comes into play. While it is my backup, it works 100% of the time. I've used it in TVs, computer monitors, and projectors. Again, it works.every.time. I will note that it also works flawlessly on my 2012 MacBook Pro.

    The surface angled bezel requires this cable

    If you want to connect your surface pro 3 or 4, the device has an angled bezel. This adapter is made specifically to fit that bezel. It is you best bet to connect directly from a surface pro to an hdmi tv/monitor. Good build quality. If you do not want this adapter, get a cable that has a protruding or longer display port end. Standard display port cables will not fit due to the angle.

    I bought this to hook my Surface Pro 3 to my LG projector so I could watch movies outside, the cable works great. *Note, I looked at the Apple mini display port and it looked different, and apparently it is and won't work with non apple products. The only downside is that this cable is a little more expensive.

    If you want to extend the display of your surface to extra screens you must have this accessory. I bought two of them so I can have two extra screens along with surface's tiny screen. I plugged one on the mini display port on the surface and with with the dock and now I have two extra monitors.

    Haven't had any issues with it so far. I use the docking station for my Surface and plug the adapter in the back, connect an HDMI cable to it and to my monitor without any problems. It annoys me that I have to use an adapter - why didn't they eliminate the need for this by putting an HDMI port on the dock?

    Works as expected but costs too much

    Microsoft is getting into the game of designing connectors that don't fit right with anything else (e.g.. an angled plug), and then over-charging their customers for the accessories that use these connectors. But... if you have a Surface Pro 3 and need an HDMI adapter, this is the one to buy.

    If you want to use any kind of external monitor or connect to an older TV you need this. I had to buy this for the Surface dock to connect our monitor in our home office. I wish the Surface 3 and its dock had an HDMI port but because they don't this is a needed purchase. Works flawlessly though.

    This little adapter is sleek and appears to be high quality. No issues here, it works great with my 24" ASUS monitor. I currently use it with the Surface Pro 3 Dock, but I did use it the tablet itself when I first received it and it worked fine, although it's kinda funky sticking out the side.

    This connector works just as it is supposed to. It's pretty easy to get going and configure as you want. I use it to mirror my Surface Pro to my large screen TV. The only downside I can see is that my mouse seems to lag when using the connector. No biggie and certainly no deal breaker.

    I got this at my local best buy at a great deal. This adapter has an angle cut into it that does not work on normal mini-display ports so I cut the angle off and now it works perfect for my surface book! And the price that I got it at really makes it worth it!

    Overpriced

    The adapter is designed for Surface pro 3. Partially works with other display port PC's (Lenovo T450) but the angled rubber surrounding the port caused adapter to fall out of the socket. Cheaper and better adapters are available in the TV department of Best Buy.

    I got this to plug my surface pro 2 on my display and use it as an extension... I found it great for watching movies and playing games on my big TV.... I have not experience any trouble at all with this products. If you want to extend your display this is the way to go.

    HDMI adapters to stream video to the big screen is pretty much the norm now. Ordering online was easy - picked up at the store = no problems. Just remember to get a HDMI-HDMI cable to go with this if you want to have your tablet any distance from the TV.

    It seems pretty silly putting a mini display port on a device as many projectors and monitors don't carry that native functionality. Case in point, if you want to display your Surface on the majority of presentation media, this is a required tool.

    Makes it possible to use any HDMI monitor or TV with your Surface Tablet. I was able to use the tablet to with a wireless keyboard and mouse to work at a large 32" TV/monitor using a surface 3. Not my usual setup but easy to carry when travelling.

    Easy installation. Plug it in the Mini DisplayPort (included in the Surface Pro docking station) and the HDMI connection of your display and you're ready to go! Some display settings may be need to be changed depending on what view you're going for

    I purchased this cable to connect a Surface Pro 2 to an HDMI monitor. connects to the Surface nicely with the bevel in the Surface end of the connector. Not for use with the Surface 3 or 4. Provided and excellent picture on my monitor.
