    I'd go with the Mini Display port to HDMI adapter from Monoprice. I have purchased a few adapters from them in the last few months, and they have all worked perfectly fine.

    Mirroring will look like crap as you are not mirroring the TV's native resolution, but a much lower one. You'll have much better image quality extending the desktop or running in clamshell mode.

    Just so you know.

    does this monoprice HDMI adapter allow audio to go from your MBPro Mini Display Port to TV's HDMI?

    I think you have to go into something like settings/audio and change it to HDMI out, I don't remember exactly what I had to do when I first set mine up.
