The Mini DisplayPort to HDMI or DVI Video Display Converter from Griffin Technology is an interesting two-in-one device for use with MacBook and MacBook Pro computers. This converter fits into an available Mini DisplayPort port on your MacBook or MacBook Pro and features a female HDMI connector on the other end. If you are connecting an HDMI display, all you need to do is hook up the converter to your computer and then connect your HDMI display. However, if you want to connect a DVI Video Display, connect the included DVI Video Display piece on the HDMI side of the converter, and then you're ready for DVI Video.

This converter will pass on audio signals as well for your MacBook Pro so long as your computer is from April 2010 or later

        It is definitely worth what you pay for, at first I didn't understand how it was supposed to work, but once I called the company, customer service ended up helping me out. It's sort of confusing at first but you get used to it. Out of everything I'll say that it is a great product, and the only thing that may annoy you is having the perfect screen resolution. Other than that it is pretty handy, and very useful! Thanks for this, my girlfriend and I can watch movies together!

          I wasn't sure that I needed both converters but ended up using the one I originally didn't think was necessary.

            Running on a MacBook Pro. Works great in the studio and opens up options for when I'm at presentations. The short cable is a little stiff but seems very well made.

            I bought this product to connect my iMac to my Samsung flat screen. Its working with no issues. Quality picture and I'm getting audio. Be aware not all converters transmit audio. Just make sure your Mac is compatible and you will appreciate this converter.

                I use it to stream HD movies from the MacBook Pro to my LCD Samsung TV w/ an attached HDMI cable (not included). Easy to set up & use, only a couple of settings to fool with in System Preferences to get the audio to work. No real issues, works well.

                    Took me 3 days of figuring out why my ne MAcbook Pro w/ Thunderbolt would not show a picture on my external 27" monitor - without a second mini DisplayPort cable to test it became a big mess... Should have stated on description that it was not thunderbolt compatible

                        When connecting MacBook Pro to HD TV. the connection between the Griffin Converter and a 25' HDMI cable, the picture was awesome when they were working, but fairly often, the connection failed. I needed to fiddle with the connection between the converter and HDMI cable to bring the picture (and sound) back. My objective was to keep the computer on my lap while watching the display on the HD TV. I returned the product and will look for another solution.
