Well-built adapter with excellent video and audio pass-through
on October 27, 2010
If you're looking at this adapter, it's probably because of two reasons: You need to make a connection in a tight space, possibly a 90 degree angle. Or, you have an HDMI port that is constantly having HDMI cables connected to and disconnected from it. This is a well-built adapter with excellent video and audio pass-through. It makes connections more convenient since it swivels and can allow you to connect cables at a 90-degree angle. Perfect for those tight spots. Recommended.
Due to the adapter's design which allows swivelling, the wiring inside has to curve and then straighten out again in the casing. Despite the curve, the audio and video signals were not affected in my tests.
CONNECTORS: The connectors on both ends are gold plated, as are the pins inside the connectors.
Both HDMI cables I tested slid in easily and held tightly. The connection is strong, and the video and audio pass-through is also excellent. The first HDMI cable I used was an Amazon Basics HDMI cable which is a thinner cable. The other HDMI cable was a thicker Belkin cable.
SWIVEL: When laying the adapter flat, the head of the adapter can swivel/move almost 90 degrees to the left or right. The middle of the adapter is on a hinge that allows the adapter to swivel up or down vertically in a 90 degree position.
QUALITY: High quality hard plastic with gold connectors.
This is a useful adapter for either making connections in tight spaces and limited areas. It also serves the purpose of providing an endpoint where HDMI cables can be connected/disconnected multiple times without causing damage to the main connector on your equipment. Most people probably won't remove HDMI connections once they are connected, but if necessary, this is a great adapter. If I have any issues with the pass-through signal, I will update this review.
