Connect an HDMI® Display to a Mini DisplayPort® Video Source. The MDP2HDS Adapter converts Mini DisplayPort to HDMI® with audio pass-through support, enabling you to connect a desktop or laptop computer that is equipped with Mini DisplayPort A/V output to an HDMI® monitor, projector, or display.
Unlike a passive adapter, the MDP2HDS actively converts single-mode and dual-mode DisplayPort output, which is ideal for graphics cards that do not output dual mode/multi-mode (DP++) signals, such as ATI™ Eyefinity cards.
The Mini DP to HDMI® adapter is compatible with Intel® Thunderbolt™, when connected directly to a supporting DisplayPort over Thunderbolt™ I/O port.
Backed by a StarTech.com two-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

  • newegg Active Mini DisplayPort Conversion The MDP2HDS Adapter supports both multimode (DP++) and single-mode DisplayPort output signals, through active Mini DisplayPort conversion. It supports display resolutions up to 1920x1200, and 5.1 Surround Sound audio pass-through.
  • newegg Compatibility with Intel Thunderbolt The Mini DP to HDMI adapter is compatible with Intel Thunderbolt, when connected directly to a supporting DisplayPort over Thunderbolt I/O port.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent quality.

This review is from: StarTech MDP2HDS Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Active Video and Audio Adapter Converter - 1920x1200

Pros: Not overly expensive, works for everyday computing, hasn't died yet.

Cons: During gaming sessions with a triple monitor eyefinity setup I get a distorted line maybe 1/8" tall across the lower portion of whichever monitor I hook up to this adapter.

Other Thoughts: I run only 1920x1080 resolution on 23.6" ASUS monitors. Line isn't visible outside of gaming sessions. Have heard people saying a monitor will shut off after extended periods on their computers. I, however, have not had any problems with that.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks like it should

This review is from: StarTech MDP2HDS Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Active Video and Audio Adapter Converter - 1920x1200

Pros: It's an active converter. It works.

This is paired with my Radeon HD 7950 graphics card and it works fine.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: If you have this converter connected to a display that you frequently turn on/off that isn't your main display, there will be a ghost display that your computer will try to output to. Assuming you have the option, connect this to your main or an otherwise always-connected display, just to make your life a little easier.

1 out of 5 eggsGood when it works......

This review is from: StarTech MDP2HDS Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Active Video and Audio Adapter Converter - 1920x1200

Pros: Does what it should when it works.........

Cons: No con's that i could think off, its just a cable......

Other Thoughts: Worked for 2 hours then signal kept crapping in and out even after trying 3 different HDMI cables and both my mini display ports (AMD HD 7970 in crossfire).

Will be receiving replacement and if i get the same problem i will stay away from StarTech.

2 out of 5 eggsWish it worked!

This review is from: StarTech MDP2HDS Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Active Video and Audio Adapter Converter - 1920x1200

Pros: Works great when it's working. (Is that a pro!?)

Cons: Loses synch every couple of minutes. Looks like it's getting a static buildup or something because eventually it can't recover from it. I have to disconnect the adapter from the back of my machine, disconnect the hdmi connector, let it sit for a minute, and then plug it back in. And the cycle repeats itself again. Every few minutes it will lose sync, flicker and then come back. And after a 1/2 day of use, it goes away until I've disonnected it.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with Eyefinity

This review is from: StarTech MDP2HDS Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Active Video and Audio Adapter Converter - 1920x1200

Pros: Replaced a faulty MiniDP -> DP (active) -> DVI -> HDMI connection in my Eyefinity setup with this adapter and a regular HDMI cable. Works great so far and happy to be rid of the extra adapters.

Cons: Pricey compared to active DVI and VGA adapters. A bundled HDMI cable would have made the price more reasonable.

2 out of 5 eggsok while it worked

This review is from: StarTech MDP2HDS Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Active Video and Audio Adapter Converter - 1920x1200

Pros: Connected my mini display port to third monitor for triple monitor connectivity, and amd's eyefinity. This is ACTIVE as advertised.

Cons: This adapter worked for 3 days. Then it failed. I tried unplugging it and moving it to another mini display port to no avail. Oh well. refund.

Other Thoughts: I've personally had it with adapters and eyefinity. Since this happened I replaced my 6870 crossfire set up with an Nvidia gtx 680 4GB. Just plug three monitors into the card. done.
