2 out of 5 eggsCheaply made

Pros: When it worked it gave a good picture.

Cons: After a few months of owning the adapter, things started falling of the circuit board.

Other Thoughts: Spend a little bit more money and get something more solid.

4 out of 5 eggsCant complain for the price

Pros: Looks pretty good on my generic HDTV. Im using it on an 09 15" Macbook Pro and it detected it instantly. Picture looks good.

Cons: I had the same problem of the top and bottom being cut off. It probably is a problem with my TV, though, and since its kinda older (for an LCD at least) its not giving me any options to fix it, but hey, not the end of the world. Its still plenty functional.

Other Thoughts: Would have been nice if they could have figured a way to fix the parts that are cut off, but I dont know if its possible without adjusting your TV.

No audio, but I dont even know if the port supports it, so again, no big deal.

If having the full picture is super important and you can't adjust it on your TV then yeah, it probably would be best to go the DVI rout and get an adapter, but that's assuming that would work. I liked this because it saved me having to buy and use yet another adapter.

1 out of 5 eggsMini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter

Pros: If it worked, would reduce the number of cables used
(iMac to Denon to Projector) Using the audio out separately for digital audio. It works fine. My current work around is mini to VGA straight to projector so need to make several adjustments going from streaming source to DVD or VCR. Curious why MAC doesn't make a cable.....

Cons: Tried numerous setting on Denon. Mac recognizes Denon but can't seem to get image on screen. returning cable (Bought elsewhere) and trying the other one posted here.

1 out of 5 eggsApple Mac Mini (2009)

Pros: None

Cons: 1) Does NOT properly output video from Mac Mini. It outputs, something strange happens to the resolution and colors/pixels display awkwardly. This can't be configured to work.

2) Does NOT pass through audio from Apple Mac Mini (2009) despite what other reviews say.

3) Noticeable lack of quality.

Other Thoughts: None

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: I use this adapter for my mac mini (htpc) --> Denon receiver --> Samsung TV. Works beautifully. For those having issues with overscan and the menu bar/dock being cut off, the problem lies in the aspect settings on your TV, not the output resolution or overscan settings on the mac.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I'd prefer that it were only an adapter plug (no wire in between) ... but then again, I'd prefer Apple to just put an HDMI output on the mac.

1 out of 5 eggsVGA and DVi are better, that's why Apple didn't make this (yet)

Pros: It's Smaller then my Apple VGA adaptor, and it's HDMI!!!

Cons: No Audio pass through for MacBook Aluminum
Resolution is wacko causes my dock and status bar to be completely cut off the screen no matter what resolution I'm using (with the exception of 640x400).

So Far I've tested this on 2 Samsung TV's (an LCD and Plasma) and a Vizio (LCD), and All 3 TV are having this issue So I've narrowed it down to the adapter being the problem. I've also tried another HDMI cable...
Also the picture and color aren't as good as what I've been getting from my trusty Apple VGA Adaptor.

Other Thoughts: People wonder why Apple has not made their own Mini DP to HDMI Adaptor... Well.. Now I know why and hope you as a consumer (who knows the value of great video quality) will take this review into consideration.

5 out of 5 eggsthis or the DVI adapter

Pros: Audio Passthrough for Mac Mini. one cable vs. two.
My first instinct is to do a DVI to HDMI adapter like the rest of the world. but with the new macmini's taking a good foot hold in the market, and being lack a full size DVI port, this adapter makes perfect sense for simplicity sake.
ONE wire for audio and video to an HDMI display that has decent speakers, or as I do, have connected the linear PCM coaxial out from the tv to an audio amplifier. With DVI I would need a separate cable for audio. When starting from scratch and wanting a clean install in a living room with a 65in rear projection DLP centerpiece, this adapter is a must.

Cons: Not being bulky and needlessly huge like the DVI to Composite/s-video adapter from Apple.

Other Thoughts: push button, receive bacon... That kind of joy. No tivo-dvd-blueray-appletv-betamax-MPEG-IMX-midget with a flip book.... just the mini(vlc) and a rear projection DLP. google skinwill.
