    Hey guys,

    I'm trying to get a mini displayport to HDMI, and came across some 3 in 1,

    I'm not sure which 1s support sound, i've heard about some miniDisplay to HDMI did not support sound. Is this laptop dependent or converter?

    I was looking at this item,

    It is on ebay at the Hootoodeals store. (not sure if i can post link to the item)

    Any feedback or experiences would help, thanks!

    Just bought this from this eBay dealer (only because he's not shipping from Hong Kong) and it arrived in four days. Works beautifully with both video and audio, and my Air 11.6" pumped out an HD movie on its "secondary" monitor perfectly.

    For $10 shipped, it was a steal. Even shipped in Apple-esque packaging (white anti-static bag stapled with a black hard top.

    Thanks,

    I think i just found my answer

    Says the HDMI doesn't support audio.

    I think i'll settle for a HDMI only one.

    I was trying to find info about these 3 in 1s, because i'm worried bout some monitors not having hdmi and only DVI

    I got exactly the same adapter in the same imitation Apple packaging for a bit less than $10 via Amazon in the UK. Nice looking adapter without a bulky socket end like some others have. Can only recommend it.
