Reviewer: domingo13 Location: Costa Mesa, CA Age: 35-44 Experience Level: IT Professional Owned Product: less than a month
Rating: 5/5 Works perfectly for connecting your Mac via HDMI! April 10, 2011 I purchased the NewerTech Mini DisplayPort w/ 5.1 Channel Audio to HDMI Adapter to connect my iMac "Core 2 Duo" 3.06 24-Inch (Early 2009) and a Toshiba 40XV645U 40" LCD HDTV. It was a simple matter of hooking up the cables and switching to HDMI 1 on my TV. I am watching Netflix, iTunes and DVDs without a hitch. I would highly recommend this product to anybody who has a Mac without audio passed through the Mini DisplayPort. It is truly a plug-and-play solution that works as advertised!

I would recommend this item to a friend!
