    USB-C Male to HDMI® Female Adapter, 4.5-inch Black

    USB-C is here and it is a real game changer!

    • New reversible Type C connector plugs in the first time, every time!
    • Use a single cable for power, video, networking, and data
    • USB 3.1 SuperSpeed+ supports up to 10Gbps data rate
    • Charge and power devices with up to 100 watts of power

    Until this point we've had to deal with a number of different USB connector types with different shapes and sizes. One thing that is common among all the various USB Type A and Type B connectors is that they are all asymmetrical, which means that there is a top and a bottom, as anyone who has fumbled around trying to insert a USB cable by feel can attest. The old USB standards are also relatively slow and can carry very little charging power.

    The USB 3.1 standard introduces the new symmetrical/reversible Type C connector. The new connector is only slightly larger than the older mini and micro Type B connectors, which means that it can be used on mobile devices, replacing the existing use of mini or micro connectors. Also, unlike the earlier use of different connectors for the host (Type A) and peripheral (Type B) devices, the Type C connector is used at both ends. Best of all, the connector is symmetrical, which means no more fumbling around to figure out which side is supposed to be on top. Just grab either end and plug it in!

    In addition to the new connector, the USB 3.1 standard increases the data transfer rate to 10GBps, which is fast enough to carry full HD video and multichannel, uncompressed audio. The standard also increases the power handling capabilities to 100 watts, which means that USB C will replace existing power, video, networking, and data cables. Apple is taking this to the extreme, with the latest MacBook Air® featuring only a single USB C port for charging, video, and connecting peripheral devices.

    This 4.5-inch video adapter features a male Type C connector on one end and a female HDMI connector on the other end.

    Pros: Great price if you only want video without sound!!

    Cons: Wanted to play a movie on my flat screen, video was great sound was from the speakers on the Laptop.. James Bond just wasn't the same!!!!!!!!!!

    What good is a cable that gives you great video without supplying the audio??

    Pros: Output video to my display

    Cons: No audio
    Display corruption
    Loose connection

    Worked with a Lumia 950XL, but not great. I was unable to get audio from this adapter. Also, I observed a lot of display corruption., and moving the phone even slightly would lose the connection.

    I have no idea if it's the adapter at fault, or if its on the phone end (though it should be noted that I had no such issues with the official Microsoft Display Dock - but the official dock also includes external power), but while this technically works, it doesn't meet my needs.

    Pros: None seen

    Cons: Does not work with MacBook 2015

    Either product was completely defective, or not at all compatible with the new MacBook 2015. USB C, which is not supposed to matter which way is up when plugged in, showed differing performance when plugged in with different sides up. But at the end of the day, would not transfer any video whatsoever to a TV or video monitor.

    Thank you for your review on PID 12905. I sincerely apologize that this adapter didn't output video at all. Unfortunately, it does appear as though it is defective as this product is built to work with Mac OS X. I will submit a complaint regarding these issues so our product team can look into the matter further. We truly value your time and feedback. If there is anything that I can assist you with, please feel free to let me know!

    Pros: Works Perfectly
    Not Complicated to hook up to laptop and TV/other

    Cons: I would have liked if it was a little less expensive

    I ordered this adapter to connect my new MacBook 12" with a USB C port to my TV Screen. It works perfectly. I was happy with how easy it was to use, it is a great little adapter, the shipping time was reasonable and I would definitely purchase again.
