works like a charm
By Brandon P.
I purchased this cable in order to watch content from my Lenovo T410 laptop on a HD TV. The laptop has a DisplayPort (DP++) output and the TV has HDMI input.
Simply by connecting the ends of this cable to my laptop and TV, I had an 720p HD image of my laptop screen almost instantly. However, there was no audio.
The lack of audio was *not* due to any flaw in the cable. In the process of troubleshooting, I saw several websites which simply blamed this sort of no-audio problem on a "cheap cable" -- but, while this cable is certainly inexpensive (which is one of the reasons I got it!), it has no trouble carrying audio (and very clear audio, at that).
I eventually found a Lenovo forum which held the answer: "First go to your audio settings by going FN + F6, choose 'Audio Defaults + Settings'. Then choose your TV as the default audio."
This did the trick for me -- I instantly had audio (both through the laptop speakers and the HD TV).
The poster on the Lenovo forum also had this piece of advice (which I never followed, since the first step solved the problem for me): "Now the sneaky part. Push FN + F7 and choose 'Projector Only', then sound will come out of the TV. Took me forever to figure out." Again, I had no need to do this, but I'm re-posting it in case someone else does.
In summary, after some fiddling with my cpu's settings, this cable delivered all that was promised: crystal clear audio and visual from my laptop to my HD TV. Note: I have only used the cable on a handful of occasions during the past few weeks, so I'm not in a good position to evaluate its durability. As a previous reviewer has mentioned, when the DisplayPort end connects to the computer, it "latches" into place, and a small panel must be pressed in order to release it -- this "release latch" doesn't feel like the most sturdy thing in the world, but it hasn't given my any problems so far, and handled gently, I would imagine that it will continue to function just fine.

Returned - Cable is not Reversable - HDMI output to DisplayPort input
By Richard G.
I had to return this item because I need a cable that goes from an HDMI output (my laptop) to a DisplayPort input (my monitor.) This cable only works in the other direction (From DisplayPort output to HDMI input.) I didn't carefully read the entire Amazon description, so that is my fault.
For anyone who reads this, be aware this cable will NOT work from an HDMI output (such as a laptop, computer, graphics card or other source,) to a DisplayPort input (such as a monitor or TV.)

Great quality, gold-plated, and a double pack of display port to HDMI cables.
By Dane O
Fantastic cables for the price. I'm using my HDTV right now. I recently purchased a computer on a Daily Deal on Amazon.com. It was small and powerful and I wanted to hook it up to be part of my entertainment system for my TV. So I purchased the computer knowing that the only ports it had were 2-Display ports. So I browsed on Amazon.com and found these cables. They sell Display port to HDMI converter, but why would you buy a converter when you can just get a whole cable for around the same price? So the cables arrived and the instructions clearly state they are not bi-directional. They are solely used just to connect a Display port device like a desktop or laptop to an HDMI display like an HDTV. They can not be used the other way around. So it was exactly what I needed. 2 high quality gold plated cables. I am only using one right now, but being how popular they are I wanted a back up just in case I purchased any more devices.
