If you have a Macbook, Surface Pro 4 or other laptop with a Mini DisplayPort, you can't connect it directly to an HDMI monitor without an adapter. But don't worry! There are plenty of options out there that will get the job done.
If you’re a Mac user, HDMI is the only way to go. However, if you prefer a PC or laptop and want to use your HDMI-equipped monitor with your computer but don’t want to buy a new one just for that purpose, then this is the best option for you.
This adapter/converter will allow you to use any monitor with an HDMI port as long as it has an appropriate VGA port on its side (and most monitors have at least one). This means that if your computer doesn't have an HDMI port but does have a VGA one, all it takes is this cable and adapter/converter combo in order for them both to work together seamlessly.
To connect everything properly into place while making sure they all fit snugly so that nothing falls out or disconnects itself when not supposed too; we recommend using solderless connectors instead of soldering because they last longer than soldered ones do especially if used frequently such as daily work environment where there may be issues with static electricity buildup which could cause shorting out which would result in damage being done quickly within hours rather than days or weeks depending how often someone uses these kinds of devices."
The Plugable Active DisplayPort to HDMI 2.0 Adapter allows you to connect your DisplayPort computer or laptop to an HDMI monitor, television or projector. The adapter supports resolutions up to 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160p) at 30Hz, so it can be used with the latest high resolution displays. This adapter also supports audio transmission, ensuring that your video will look and sound great when connected using this adapter. If you need support for older HDMI 1.3 displays, please refer to our [HDMI 1.3 compliant version](https://www.plugable.com/products/displayport-hdmi-adapters).
This active adapter is capable of driving high resolution displays using a single cable connected from the output display port on your laptop or desktop PC directly into an HDMI input on the TV or monitor as long as both support HDMI 2 (or higher). By connecting over USB 3 instead of through your internal graphics card's display outputs on both ends, we make sure that there are no compatibility issues between different brands of graphics cards and motherboards - just plug it in!
