    HDMI out to MiniDisplay Port In? Not so much...

    • Written by Christopher S from Campbellcroft

    I was looking for a cable to connect an NEC display with MiniDisplay input to my MacBook Pro using the MBP's HDMI output. You might think that this cable would work. It does not. Seems to be a one way wonder.

    Oddly, yet fully, inadequate

    • Written by David H from Cotati

    Bought this on the assurance of the rep that it would deal with at least 60hz, 4k, going from my 2015 iMac to a TV. TV does it fine, with Apple TV. It's been a few years since 4k external monitors have been a talking point at keynotes and WWDC. Surely the cable works on this fundamental level.

    No, it doesn't, and neither do any of the other mini-displayport to HDMI adapters currently available at the Apple Store. Not ONE of them. It's almost 2019, and the shelves and online store are stocked with nothing for this common adapter scenario that is adequate. 30hz refresh is a ghostly, fuzzy, flippy mess of a scenario. It's unpleasant, and bad for the eyes. That Belkin doesn't even make a better cable, and that the Apple Store doesn't bother to supply any of those that do exist, instead opting to offer 4 different adapters which will, under no circumstances, permit the display of 4k at a passable refresh rate, is mind-boggling.

    After a lot of research (this adapter was $50, not falling for it again), discovered that many cable makers do indeed make appropriate adapters. Some even make crazily forward thinking adapters that support HDMI 2.1 and the highest datarate possible, for future scenarios. I could have ordered online, but I needed a replacement while I have a day off, so the only one offered in a retail store is....Microsoft's Surface 2 Mini-Displayport to HDMI adapter. I just drove 2 hrs each way to get it from Best Buy. And...it totally works.

    Gross. What is the world coming to?

    Works great the first year, useless thereafter

    • Written by Sergio C from Irving

    On the one year anniversary of buying this product, it stopped working. I used it very little during that year and took good care of it. Now my television doesn't pick up the signal. Disappointment.

    Awesome for MacBook Pro Retina (2012) to newer 4K displays

    • Written by Robert B from Salem

    My ThunderBolt display finally bit the dust and I replaced it with the LG 27" 27UD69P-W 4K display. When I connected the enclosed HDMI cable, I was seriously disappointed. The refresh rate dropped to 30 and everything was slow and wonky. Then I searched the Apple Store and found this Belkin cable. It arrived just a few moments ago. I just connected one end to the display HDMI, and the other to my MacBookPro Mini Display Port. Eureka! I am back to the same crisp 27" display that I once had, and it did not require me to make any adjustments on the LG display.

    Color me happy! :)

    Dead within a year

    • Written by David L from Halifax

    Purchased Feb 15, 2017. Dead as a doornail Dec 11, 2017. RIP $50 cable. Should be able to give this a ZERO star review for dying in less than 10 months. Don't waste your money.

    Awesome buy!!

    • Written by Noah C from Elmvale

    The Belkin 4k Mini Display port is amazing!! Along with the mirroring display option (which HDMI cable's use), it also includes the ability to move applications windows into the separate connected monitor. This is really useful if you are using many applications at once or do not want to continually move screens around on your single computer display. For anyone who has an extra monitor available or wants to have more screen viewing space, I recommend this product.

    Very Impressed!!

    save your money

    • Written by Sandra E from Browns Mills

    worked great for about 1 year ..after that the connection to the display port got very touchy ..
    even if you slightly touch the cable..it will disconnect and loose picture on TV...
    and even after checking with your system display in computer.. the cable is not found even while still connected !
    Not gonna pay crazy money anymore for something with a limited warranty

    Doesn't work with some displays.

    • Written by James T from Adelaide

    Very disappointed with this product, the description promises plug and play usability but what it doesn't mention is that some displays do not support the use of the mini-display port. It works on my TV but doesn't work on my Samsung monitor.
    I tried doing the right thing - buying from the apple store instead of a cheap knock off for 5 bucks but it didn't pay off.

    Very, very disappointed considering the price of this cable. I will be looking to get a full refund.

    Doesn't work

    • Written by Huw T from Lewes

    Doesn't work with MacBook. After receiving it and coming away to a hotel and using it for the first time. Reading fine print on box, not on description on Apple Store page, I haven't got the Thunderbolt 2 connection on my MacBook. Maybe something to bear in mind when buying this item.

    need thunderbolt 2

    • Written by Rosemary R from Folsom

    I bought this adapter so I could display a slideshow from Photos on an HDTV. I found 2 options, one from Moshi and one from Belkin. The reviews of the Moshi was discouraging with many people having the adapter stop working. I decided the 6ft Belkin would allow me to reach the tv set without having to get another HDMI to HDMI cord. The on line description says it is 6.5ft but the package actually says 6ft though I did not measure it. The Apple store clerk said it would work with any thunderbolt port but when I tried it on my MacBook Pro vintage mid-2012, it did not work. I read the fine print on the package and it states thunderbolt 2 is needed. I hooked it to my iMac with thunderbolt 2 and it worked perfectly.
