Product Highlights
  • USB to HDMI With Audio

It's no secret that the lack of an HDMI port on Apple computers has been the source of much angst for Mac users. Since most HDTVs forgo the DisplayPort in favor of the HDMI port, Mac users have to buy video adapters to connect their Macs to their HDTVs. Finding the right one can be difficult, but the mLinq USB-to-HDMI-with-Audio Adapter from Kanex makes it easy to connect your Mac to an external display for full high-definition video output.

This adapter connects to the USB 2.0 port of your Mac computer and has a female HDMI port on the other end, which allows you to connect to a HDTV via male-to-male HDMI cable. Enjoy 1080p HD video playback right on your HDTV with full audio.

Support for Past Mac Models
For the legacy Mac (2006-2009) computers that do not have a Mini DisplayPort connector, this adapter is an ideal solution for connecting to any HDMI-compliant external display, such as an HD projector or an HDTV. Unleash your desktop applications by extending your legacy Mac onto a newer display for extra desktop space, viewing photos and watching videos
Panoramic View
Enjoy multiple desktops. Just connect this adapter to your existing USB port and create a panoramic workspace by viewing your desktop across multiple displays without sacrificing continuity
Quick & Simple
Set-up is a breeze for those who have plugged a USB cable or any other USB peripherals before. This adapter needs just a one-time software installation the first time it is plugged in and then it's plug and play from then on. It is even hot swappable with no need for hardware updates
Powered From Within
Don't bother with cumbersome power supplies that take up space. This adapter is powered via USB. With a built-in LED light, the adapter will conveniently alert you when its on and working

      Comments about Kanex mLinq USB-to-HDMI-with-Audio Adapter:

      Imagine that you bought the wrong computer and it didn't have a key feature that you needed. That was what happened to us. Surfing online about this issue only brought up adapters that cost about $150. Then the B & H Sales Rep recommended this model and it saved us a lot of heartache (and money...) Works perfectly.Thanks B&H!
