My original review:
I used this a couple of times with mixed results. The connection required frequent attention and re-adjusting, the centering of the display from my Mac Air was a tenuous proposition, and, upon removal, the original display of the large screen was disproportionate. So I spent a bit more on the purchase of the Kanex iAdapt HDMI V2, which not only comes in a clearly labeled box (including complete specs) but is clearly better constructed--from the components of the cable to the transformer itself. The enclosure of the latter, moreover, is twice the size of the pictured generic unit, allowing sufficient room for small but intricate circuitry. Not only did the Kanex function more smoothly and efficiently but it gave me the extra confidence that any lecturer-demonstrator desires when using a computer to project visual information on a large screen before an expectant public audience.
If all you plan to do is play games on your TV set, etc., this item (1/4 the price of the Kanex) is probably up to the task. Be alerted that you'll receive a very plain-looking adapter in cellophane, with nary a marking let alone specs or instructions in sight.
DisplayPort to HDMI Sound is actually set up by using the MIDI setup utility found in :
Applications > Utilities > Audio MIDI Setup.
If you purchased an iWires cable direct from Apple the instructions are in the printed booklet that comes in the packaging. Most people don't read this as it's normally the case that when you plug a cable in to anything it just works (VCR, TiVo, Xbox, video camera etc). In this instance Apple are failing to live up to their catch-phrase as final setup is NOT intuitive; "it just DOESN'T work".
The booklet instructions basically say do the following,
System Preferences > Displays. There are 3 tabs in the window; Displays, Arrangement and Color. Be sure you are on the Displays tab. Bottom left of the window tick "Show displays in menu bar" and then bottom right click "Detect Displays".
Now click on the tab named Arrangement. Bottom left of the window tick "Mirror Displays".
You should now only see 2 tabs, Display and Color. Be sure you are on the Displays tab. Select the desired resolution for your TV (probably 1080i). leave all other settings at their default values.
System Preferences > Sound. There are 3 tabs in the window; Sound Effects, Output and Input. Be sure you are on the Sound Effects tab. Middle of the window select your TV where it says "Play sound effects through:".
Select the middle tab named Output.
Select your TV from the drop-down list next to HDMI, below where it says "Select a device for sound output".
Using either Finder or Launchpad go to Applications > Utilities > Audio MIDI Setup.
On the left-hand side of the window you should now see HDMI. In the middle of the window, on the Output tab, where it says "Source:" select your TV from the drop-down list.
This last action below is NOT described in the iWires notes but was required in my case, it may also be required in yours. If you CANNOT see a speaker icon next to HDMI in the list on the left, do the following:
Bottom left of the window select the wheel icon with the down-pointing triangle. Make sure that sound output is selected and that you can now see a speaker icon next to HDMI in the list of devices.
If you still cannot hear sound, log out of your account and then log back in.
You will now have sound coming out of your TV from your computer
You may have to do some or all of the above to get sound out of your TV from your computer using the DisplayPort to HDMI cable. On my Aug 2011 MacbookPro I had to do ALL of the above. If you take your laptop to a different TV you will have to do it all again so be warned.
This has been compatible with every different HDMI cable I've used. It works without fail and the video quality is amazing. This is a perfect converter from my Macbook to big screens.
This converter is made of durable plastic and a nice sturdy rubber wire casing. I've never had any problems transporting it anywhere with my laptop bag and that thing gets slammed around pretty frequently. I have had this product for one year or longer and it's just as good as the day I purchased it.
The connector to the macbook fits snuggly and seems just as good as any apple product that may be used for the same purpose. I feel like this could've easily been made by Apple given the great quality and ease of use.
Overall, it's an affordable converter that has lasted me for a long while without any lag or wear in the connectivity. Make sure that this is the proper one for your macbook as different years have different ports and I actually made this error before purchasing this. Trust me, double check.
