This review is from: Logitech K400 (920-003070) Black USB RF Wireless Standard Keyboard
Pros: Small keyboard with integrated touchpad. Perfect for home theatre PC's. Touch pad supports multi-touch. I purchased a refurbished unit for $25. No problems with it, looks new. The keyboard actually has all the F Keys, some of the others I was looking at didn't. No software required to make this work.
Cons: The touchpad buttons feel a bit flimsy.
Other Thoughts: I unboxed, installed the batteries, plugged in the receiver and expected it to work. I didn't. Of course there was a simple fix. I had to flip the switch from off to on. That threw me for a second since none of my wireless keyboards have an on/off switch.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: DP connector is small and so is the HDMI side. Much less likely to be physically broken than dongle type convertors. Works great for switching the DP++ ports on my ThinkServer TS140 to HDMI for outputting to my TV.
Cons: None than I've found so far.
Other Thoughts: Shipping not free, but Newegg already knocked the price down to $7.99, so I can't complain.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Nippon Labs AD-DPM-HDMIF Displayport Male to HDMI® Female Adapter
Pros: Smaller than most dongles. Gold plated contacts. Supports video and audio pass through when connected to my DisplayPort++ port.
Cons: The dongle design is prone to breaking due to how far it protrudes from the back of the computer. Less than ideal if the back of your computer is close to contacting anything.
Other Thoughts: After reading the reviews I was concerned that I bought an adapter without audio support. Another reviewer posted that this doesn't support audio. After trying it out on my new HTPC I can confirm that it does work with both audio and video.
That said, I purchased another DP to HDMI adapter that has the "short cable" design so that I won't break it and also give me more clearance on the back of the computer.
