    5Great deal but check your Mac Model 1st
    By Gabe
    This cable is well built and a great deal. Prior to ordering this cable however, you need to check a few things.

    First verify that your Mac actually outputs sound through the mini-display port. You can verify your specific model here- [...] Sorry, Amazon will not allow me to put in a direct link. Just go to the Apple support web site and enter "About Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapters" in search. You'll be taken to a page that lists all Macs and whether or not they output sound from their mini-display port.

    If you don't know what model and year your Mac is, follow these directions- Click Apple icon (upper left of your screen), click "About This Mac", click "More Info". On this screen you'll see the model and year (13 Inch, Mid 2009).

    If your Mac supports sound through the mini-display port, you're done. Go ahead and order the cable. If not, read further.

    If your model does not support sound output you can easily get around this by hooking up additional cabling (via the headphone jack or optical port dependent upon model). In either case you should also verify that your TV will accept both sound and audio through discrete sources. Even if your TV doesn't accept separate audio and video sources, if you planned to play sound through a separate receiver, you're okay.

    If you will not be using a separate audio source for sound and your TV does not support separate inputs for audio and sound (or maybe you're not sure) you may be better off purchasing an alternative device that combines sound and audio via cabling . One such device is the Kanex iAdapt51 for around $35 here at Amazon.

    1Worked for 4 months, then broke.
    By dalas verdugo
    Title says it all. Worked great for 4 months, but suddenly doesn't work any more. Might not be an issue if you never disconnect the cable, but I don't always leave my laptop hooked up to my TV, so I guess plugging and unplugging it wore it out somehow. I'm going to try a different brand.

    EDIT 12/16/2014: Three years after writing this review, they contacted me and offered to send me a new cable. The new cable is a different type, so hopefully it's more robust. We will see if it lasts longer than the original cable, but I'm changing my rating from one star to three stars because of the effort.

    Better late than never.

    EDIT 05/26/15: The new cable has broken as well. Back to one star.

    5One cable to rule them all
    By Rebecca Fogel
    Awesome all-in-one cable! I got this to connect my 2011 Macbook Pro to my TV, and it works like a dream. It transfers both high-quality audio and video via thunderbolt port, with no need to mess with expensive adapters or a tangle of cords.

    Quick tip: don't forget to configure your Mac to talk to your TV. I used the following settings:
    System Preferences > Sound > Output > select "HDMI"
    System Preferences > Display > select "Mirror"

    Perfect for streaming movies!
