4Great for any type of use.
By P.S.Tang
I have a setup consisting of two HP Pavilion 27xw 27-inch IPS LED Backlit Monitors. I have both of those plugged into one Nvidia GeForce 980 TI. I had to use a Display port to HDMI adapter since the 980 TI only had one HDMI port. Monitor (A) connected through the adapter displays a washed out color compared to Monitor B, which was connected through the HDMI port. It was first noticeable when I switched my desktop background to black. I've read reviews that some of the HP monitors displayed a washed out color. To make sure that wasn't the case I swapped the adapter from Monitor A to Monitor B, and surely enough Monitor B became washed out in color compared to the now HDMI connected Monitor A. I've also tried connecting the adapter to the other display ports and have tried other HDMI cables, in case any was faulty. All came back with the same results. To take it a step further, I reconnected the cables into my second 980 TI. That ruled out any bad display ports on my first GPU. I would not recommend this for a multiple monitor setup if you are using it for gaming. For anything else it should suffice.

Update - 4/3/2017

This was originally a 1 star post, but I have now changed it. Amazon sent another adapter and I am happy to say that it works fine. Since writing my original review, I purchased another exact HP monitor and also an Acer R240HY and have tried the old cable on those as well. Both with the same results: washed out color. I tested out the new adapter on all 4 monitors and they all look great. It could quite possibly be a bad adapter that I received. I would recommend this adapter or AmazonBasics DisplayPort to HDMI Cable - 6 Feet
for a multiple monitor setup. They both work well for gaming. I have them both connected along with an HDMI cable to 3 HP monitors in Nvidia surround, and notice no color differences.

5Love it!
By Amazon Customer
This device was exactly what I needed to connect my laptop to my TV. Just plugged it into my laptop, connected it to an HDMI cord, and plugged the HDMI into the TV . But, I just want to point out that this is NOT a USB to HDMI converter. I will post a picture of the port that it plugs into, because it does not connect to a USB port.

4Works with a Cisco DX80 video endpoint.
By Dominic
I used this to connect my desktop PC to my Cisco DX80 video endpoint. The DX80 only has HDMI inputs and comes with a HDMI/USB cable but the HP desktop doesn't have any of these video outputs. This was a great solution for a common problem. Also the HP desktop supports audio over the display port and this adapter allows the audio over HDMI to pass through to the DX80 onboard speaker.
