3 inches long, 1 inch wide.
PROS: Monoprice is fair, keeps their word, and delivers in a timely manner. I would use them again for this product.
CONS: The product did not designate if it was 1.4a compatible. It would be nice to include that information in the product description.
PROS: Good price. Good quality. Does what it's supposed to do.
PROS: Swivels 90 degrees to either side. Good quality item.
I have tried all of the different HDMI adapter gadgets (this one, the solid kind, and the short cable extenders). They each have their uses, depending on the situation. They all can help with the aforementioned problem, and I'd recommend any of them. That said, this is my favorite with one caveat. The shell at the plug-in end is still under stress from the cable, and may itself come apart, at least partly. It may be necessary to superglue the shell to help keep it from opening under stress. Perhaps duct tape (kidding).
Alternatively, suggest you try routing cables up thru holes in a mount (if they are flexible enough), then down to the connector. That might resolve the issue. I have used the short cable adapters this way, too, as any of these adapters are going to be under stress. The right-angle-down type is probably under the least stress, but frankly, I don't have many situations where I can use it due to other connectors in the path. It doesn't help with more than one HDMI cable, either.
That is the reason for my slight mark-off, because this certainly can be fixed in manufacturing (probably with glue or a screwed-together case). I hope in the future it is, because this is a great idea and perhaps the most generally useful solution.
PROS: Does exactly what I needed.
No noticeable loss.
CONS: 90-degree may not be possible, without bracing the pivot.
Not advertised as 90-degree, so that's not really a 'con'.
Nothing to list as a true con.
PROS: Good connectors to allow HDMI cable connector not to have a 90-degree bend. This adapter doe that for you. It also makes it easy to connect and disconnect an HDMI cable from the adapter which saves the port on your TV.
PROS: Price, Service, Delivery
