Length: 6.5 FeetPackage Type: Standard PackagingVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
This cable looks, feels, and works great. I plugged it from my HD camcorder into my receiver and everything worked great. The cable has gold plated ends and also has a very sturdy feel to it, which makes me more confident that it will not kink easily.

One bonus is that the Amazon packaging means it is just a box with a twisty tie (the connectors have a small plastic protective end cap). So much better than the plastic packaging that requires a chainsaw to open.

To be clear, this cable is for plugging a mini connector such as your camcorder into your TV or receiver.

This is not HDMI MICRO(D type), but MINI(C type). Amazon doesn't have proprietary HDMI Micro cable yet, so don't get confused.

Simply put, this cable is great for connecting certain tablets to your TV. I own a Creative ZiiO 16 GB and a VL Android Internet Tablet that have a HDMI mini type C connection. I often take either one of these tablets on trips with me and for hotels that have flat screen TV's, it's great for watching your own movies, expanding work projects on a bigger screen and a variety of other different purposes.

Check your device before you buy this cable though. The type C connection appears common among most tablets but the recent Kindle Fire HD 7" connection is a Type D. This cable will NOT fit any of the Kindle Fire HD tablets. The length of the cable is great for hooking to the back of the TV and being able to use your tablet at a nearby desk or by pulling up a chair closer to the TV. The quality of video produced by this cable from my tablet to the TV is just what I would expect via an HDMI connection, very clear picture. The cable is very durable as well, I often roll it up and put in my bag for trips and it hasn't shown any signs of cracking or failure in any way. I don't use the Ethernet feature of this cable but it is great to have that option should I need it in the future. Overall, I've been quite pleased with this cable and would recommend it to tablet users for home or travel use.

This is a very good, inexpensive product for those with a need for a Mini-HDMI connector. Nowadays, a lot of portable video/photo products are including a smaller HDMI output -- the Canon 5D II, Canon 7D and Fuji W3 3D camera for example. The plug is basically a mini HDMI connector (hence the name!) which plugs into the device, but has a full-sized HDMI connector on the other end to connect to a TV.

Before buying this, check for the exact HDMI-type you need:

* HDMI
* Mini-HDMI
* Micro HDMI

The cable itself is good quality - it's not braided like some of the higher-end ones, but the quality is the same and theres no reason to buy a high-end one (unlike Analog cables, there will not be any quality loss).

Since HDMI comes in various versions (Some don't do high-quality audio (DTS-HD), some don't do ethernet or 3D, some don't have Audio-Return Channel... so it's important to look at which version you need.). This cable is a v1.4 cable (latest version as of this writing, so it does "everything" including 3D (for a 3D camera like a Fuji W3)

Length: 6.5 FeetPackage Type: Standard PackagingVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
This is a high Quality cable that has the Amazon brand. We can all be pretty sure Amazon does not really make these, but whoever does makes em good.

Gold plated ends make for good connections between devices, and these fit securely for me. The cable is not flimsy or brittle, and at 6.5 feet (2 meters) length is fine for hooking most devices to your big screen or what have you.

I didn't get a chance to test the ethernet feature of this cable, as the devices I used it for did not have this capability.

Be careful when purchasing this item. One end is the standard hdmi, but the other is the mini c connector, used for things like digital video cameras, digital cameras, etc.

WHO NEEDS IT?

WARNING: this cable has one regular (Type A) and one MINI connector (Type C). It will NOT connect 2 regular components such as a TV and a receiver. The MINI connector is smaller/thinner and is meant for portable devices. However, you must make sure that your device needs a MINI because HDMI 1.4 added the Type D connector, oalso known as a MICRO connector which is even smaller/thinner than the MINI so make sure that you get the right cable.

It should work well with anything that supports HDMI 1.3x that needs a MINI connector but it's built to comply with the higher HDMI 1.4 or HDMI 1.4a standard. You may consider this product if you have TWO devices that support the HDMI 1.4 standard. For these, the cable will carry through HD images and Ethernet data therefore eliminating the need for one dedicated Ethernet cable and one Ethernet port. You may also consider this cable if you currently need an extra HDMI 1.3 cable but you are planning to to replace your existing equipment with some HDMI 1.4 ready hardware in the near future.

Unless either of the above is true, you will not need this cable and, given that the HDMI 1.4 standards aren't set in stone yet - the HDMI 1.4a was released recently - you should be better off waiting for the dust to settle if you don't need it today. Keep in mind that BOTH connected devices need to support the HDMI 1.4 standard for this cable to make a difference and that it is NOT possible to upgrade any existing equipment (TV, Blu-ray player) to support HDMI 1.4.

As far as HDMI 1.4 stands, this cable is the complete implementation. It supports ALL HDMI 1.4 features.

HOW GOOD IS IT?

- Behaves as a HDMI 1.3x 'high speed' or 'category 2' cable.
- As a 'high speed' HDMI 1.4 cable, it supports video resolutions of at least 1080p and can go as high as 4K.
- The 'data channel' (Ethernet support) works only with HDMI 1.4 ready equipment.
- The 'audio return channel' is another feature supported by HDMI 1.4 ready equipment only. It will allow for audio to be sent 'back' from, let's say a TV to the HDMI 1.4 compliant receiver, therefore eliminating the need for a dedicated audio cable.
- It should support all the HDMI 1.4 extra color palettes because those are implemented by the HDMI 1.4 compliant connected equipment.

Get this cable if you need to connect with something that needs a MINI connector. Even if your equipment is not HDMI 1.4, it doesn't hurt to get a wire that supports a higher standard.

END OF REVIEW

______________________________________________________

What follows is the byproduct of me attempting to clarify 'HDMI 1.4' for myself and understanding this specific product's features. I thought I'd share.

WHAT'S IN A NAME? (understanding this cable's features)

- HDMI 1.4 is a new HDMI standard adopted in 2009, backward compatible with HDMI 1.3. This cable should work with your existing equipment.
- HIGH SPEED indicates that this cable supports resolutions of 1080p or higher and 3D video (unlike the HDMI 1.4 STANDARD cables which, believe it or not, are limited to 720p/1080i - why? nobody knows).
- ETHERNET means that this cable supports a full-duplex 100 Mb/sec Ethernet connection - if you have 2 HDMI 1.4 ready devices and they both need an network connection, this cable will carry through the Ethernet datastream to the second device, therefore saving you the need for one extra Ethernet cable.
- Audio Return Channel is a feature that would save you the need of a dedicated audio cable between 2 HDMI 1.4 compliant devices.
- This cable should support the full set of 3D features found in the new TVs.

THE HDMI 1.4x DIFFERENCE

HDMI 1.4 allows for the following new features:

- Ethernet Channel - allows for the 2 connected devices to communicate with each other and share one network connection.
- Audio Return Channel - eliminates the need of a second cable if you want to send audio from your TV back to your receiver.
- 3D - It's supported by HDMI 1.3x but HDMI 1.4a specifically supports all the currently agreed-upon industry standards
- 4K resolution - good to have it but there is nothing on today's market that would take advantage of this
- Expanded support for new color spaces - by supporting sYCC601, AdobeRGB, and AdobeYCC601 it better aligns your display with the color spaces supported by digital cameras.
- Type D connector - the 'Micro' connector is to be used by small, portable devices with supported resolutions of up to 1080p.

The HDMI Consortium defines 4 broad types of HDMI 1.4 cables:

* Standard HDMI Cable
* High Speed HDMI Cable
* Standard HDMI Cable with Ethernet
* High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet

Of the above, only the 'High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet' makes sense and it's likely to emerge as the common HDMI 1.4 cable.

Standard cables are limited to lower-resolution displays up to (approx. 720p or 1080i). High Speed cables support higher-resolution display (e.g. 1080p). They can deliver all video content currently defined for the HDMI standard (i.e. more than two 1080p/60 video streams, including 3D). HDMI cables with Ethernet are capable of sending 100/mbps over the HDMI Ethernet Channel. Since it is not likely that many HDMI 1.4 'standard' cables will be made or sold, I suspect that the crippled 'standard' type exists only to allow for calling the cables that support 1080p 'high speed' which sounds good and high-end.

This high quality Mini-HDMI to Standard-HDMI adapter cable is ideal for connecting the latest high-end graphics cards to your HDTV. It is well made and has a 9.8 ft length for a perfect distance between your devices.

I use this connector to view the video output of my Nikon D300s DSLR, attached to a Meade ETX-125 telescope, on a Samsung HDTV. It's a lot of fun to pan across the craters of the moon in real time with this setup. A more conventional use might be slides shows viewed from the camera body, but IMHO a better way to do that is view the images from a PC attached to the HDTV (better control of the show through software than through a camera). But the cable itself is up to the the task. It's well-made and affordable for 2 meters, which I think is the minimum length necessary to be useful in most situations.

Seriously, why and how are Best Buy still selling this for ridiculous prices ($30 and more)? Even if yours doesn't work, Amazon will refund you and give you another one within a week.

After buying my transformer was looking for some mini hdmi cable to connect to my tv.
Bestbuy sells one like this for like $40. so i bought this. read the review and thought might work, just $7 dosent hurt to try but.....

1. Fast shipping with prime
2. Cables Quality is great. Dosent look like some chines crap.
3. AND IT WORKS!

This is must buy cable for every transformer owners. so easy plug and play. there are no lags between transformer screen and TV. Now i really love my "YouTube Remote" app on my phone. Also i advice people to buy a Bluetooth mouse so you can use your tablet paired with tv from you comfort.

Again its a great cable for so cheap price compared to one they sell at bestbuy and workds perfect
