    Cable was intermittent from day 1

    • Written by from Santa Clara

    If it was physically aligned in a very particular way, the cable would connect properly when it was new. Eventually it wasn't possible to make it work at all. I purchased this at an Apple store, but you have to work through the manufacturer for warranty replacement with a different instance of the same bad cable. Apple should be ashamed that they are selling this product. My advice is to spend the extra $40 for an Apple TV if you want to use your computer with an HDMI display.

    Does not hold up to regular plugging in and out. Fails to read often and eventually may even make your Mac shut down/restart or just die. The HDMI port is fine but it's the Mini display port side that's the problem. Do not buy. Waste of time and money! I've started researching alternatives already.

    2nd broken cable!! Zero Stars!!

    • Written by from Calgary

    Bought our first cable and after a week of buying it and plugging it in/out maybe 5 times total the mini side metal housing broke off inside my mid 2012 MBP!! Using tweezers to remove the housing, took the cable back to Apple and they exchanged no problem. Got a longer life out of this second cable but now it's start to mess up. Poor connection issues and if the cable gets moved it flickers the tv and have to reset so display comes back on tv. Poor product, don't waste time, money and piece of mind on this piece of junk!!

    Terrible cable

    • Written by from Dallas

    I'm on my second one of these after the first one was replaced by the manufacturer for being defective after the store wouldn't take it back when it was just 3 weeks old. The cable is essentially weak on the mini-port side - the plug end can't hold up to everyday plugging in and unplugging and fails quickly.
