Does what it says but bulky
This review is from: StarTech GCMDP2DPMF Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort Adapter Converter - M/F
Pros: Converts displayport to mini-displayport. Probably works fine for laptops as described.
Cons: Too bulky for some applications and fairly expensive.
Other Thoughts: I got these so that I could use some displayport-displayport cables that I had with my Radeon 6990. The size of the adapter prevents using all the mini-displayport outputs on this card because it overlaps the adjacent port. This is probably also the case for other cards where you have more than one mini-displayports in a row. The weight of the cable + adapter also seemed to be stressing one of the mini-displayport and if it got bumped it would cut out. I would recommend the adapters that have a cable lead or just getting a displayport to mini-displayport cable (which you could find for basically the same price) instead if this is your purpose. Otherwise I don't really have any functional complaints, but I should have thought my application through a little better before getting these.
