    Found better on amazon.

    • Written by Shae S from Spruce Grove

    I purchased this for my 2012 MacBook Pro in about 2014. From the first time I used it there was glitches. Sound wouldn’t come through the tv, it would freeze, restart my computer, the image would flicker or not be the correct ratio. But it worked reliably enough for me to hang onto it for 5 years. Ultimately it wouldn’t work unless I was holding it at a certain angle in the port, and the screen was pixelating terribly. I went on amazon, found one from amazon’s brand, “amazon basics” for $10. I’ve used it for a couple months now and have had not one issue with the image or quality. I would recommend the amazon brand over the belkin one for price and quality any day.

    Not capable for 60Hz

    • Written by Norbert C from Budapest

    I purchased one, and used a Macbook Air 13 Early 2015.
    Unfortunately this Belkin adapter does not support 4k at 60Hz, it only supports 4k at 30Hz!
    Also it is strangely getting too warm when used.

    It works great

    • Written by Cody M from Duncan

    I recently created a new home office for online college classes etc instead of using my MacBook Air on my lap as usual and needed one of these to complete my setup. I bought a new HP Flatscreen Monitor with 1080p HD and connected it through the Belkin Adapter and I couldn't be happier. I as do some gaming on here and I haven't had any of the issues others are talking about with screen bleeding, jumping etc. It works flawlessly. Just plug it in and close the MacBook and bam, perfect imaging. I had read the reviews on the Moshi Adapter and decided to go with this one and I am glad I did.

    error with product

    • Written by Arun M from Suffolk

    Within a two years my wife & myself had to replace this product twice (once a year). Only due to the fact that when we got the product it worked fine, picture & sound perfect, but then by a year the picture would stop showing on & off & the sound wold on & off static. We got told we would not be able to exchange the product a third time.

    This is Junk

    • Written by Christopher B from McKinnon

    I purchased this to allow me to plug my old 13" late 2011 MacBook Pro into a new monitor. Seemed to work at fist but the signal would drop out occasionally. After a while it failed more often than it worked. I recently purchased a replacement from another manufacturer for $12 which has worked without a problem. Simply don't purchase this, look elsewhere.

    4K at 30Hz only

    • Written by Roger D from Aurora

    I just purchased this cable, but unfortunately I'll be returning it. I was hoping to get HDMI2.0 3840x2160 @ 60Hz since it's converting from displayPort. This doesn't seem to be the case though. I max out at 30Hz (and I have the latest 1TB Macbook Pro 15" - as of May 2016).

    So far, meh.

    • Written by Alfredo D from Boca Raton

    I plugged into a 1080p TV to give a presentation. I configured the TV as an external display and used my MacBook Air's display for presenter tools. This was my first time using this adapter and things did not go smoothly. At some point the screen dimensions seemed to get out of wack and parts of the desktop displayed on the TV bled into my MBA's screen. At one point I disconnected the adapter, but the problem did not reset itself. My MBA's desktop was still shifted over by the area that had previously displayed part of the external desktop. This same MBA normally drives a Thunderbolt display so I don't believe that it was just a matter of its graphics capabilities maxing out. I'll give this adapter another try next time I have a chance, but I'm not confident that I won't have similar results.

    4K works, but capped at 30hz (can't achieve 60hz)

    • Written by Jonathan Q from Toronto

    I picked up this adapter in an attempt to achieve full 4K res from my 4K Samsung TV to my MacBook Pro Retina.
    The Belkin adapter was able to convert the HDMI signal to 4K, but it was capped at 30hz (so screen movements looked choppy).

    I tried everything I could (adjusting display resolutions, using SwitchResX, different Thunderbolt ports, etc...), but I was unable to get anything higher than 30hz.

    The adapter also felt warm to the touch when in use.

    - Macbook Pro Retina -> Samsung 4K TV
    - 4K works, but 30hz only
    - Can't go higher than 30hz
    - Adapter felt warm/hot when in use
