Cable Matters Gold Plated DisplayPort to HDMI Male to Female Cable Adapter
Cable Matters Gold Plated DisplayPort to HDMI Male to Female Cable Adapter
Offered by Cable Matters
Price: £10.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Audio works too, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My laptop doesn't have an HDMI out, but has a DisplayPort and to connect it to the projector I bought this adaptor. I'm happy to report that both video and audio get transferred from the DisplayPort, through this adapter, and into the AV Receiver. I believe the DisplayPort on the computer has to support audio to make this possible, so older ports might not include audio. My laptop is designated with a DP++ sign next to the DisplayPort, so if you have the same, you should be safe, but check the manual first.

The only thing I don't like about this adaptor is that it locks itself when inserted into the DisplayPort, and to extract it back, you have to press the button on the connector to release 2 small metal tabs on the sides. If you connect it once and keep it that way, that might be fine, but if you constantly connect and disconnect, it's a bit annoying. But overall, this adaptor is a good value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection, 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although this box set does not contain Kubrick's every movie, each film included in this collection is a different genre, so you'll get to watch one of the best war, romance, horror, sci-fi, etc examples in cinematography. Overall, it's a great collection for the price and is highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely breathtaking on Blu-ray, 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You have to watch it on a big screen! The images are fantastic, sharp, clear and the scenery is beautiful. Each disc also contains a section on how a particular part was filmed, and it's merged at the end of the main feature, so you don't have to switch menus, etc. This is probably the best documentary on the subject. It travels to the remotest areas of our world, and gets really close to the animals, birds and fish shown, and so it feels even more realistic. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cross trainer, 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It took me about 2 hours to assemble this cross trainer with my friend (if I did it alone, it could have easily taken 3 hours, I'd assume). But after it was ready to use, it's been a great equipment for the past several months. It's quiet and has lots of settings and adjustments to accommodate practically any needs. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really great, 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this console for my son, and he loves it. His previous system was PlayStation 2, and so it was a very easy transition for him. In terms of the box design it's very compact and nicely fits into a shelf under the TV set. With the blue and white LED lights and the shape of the box it looks rather futuristic. The system performs well and so far we haven't had any issues.. He mostly plays games, and doesn't use apps much. When playing intensively for 2-3 hours, the console gets noticeably hot, so we take a break and switch it off (just in case, as the heat is bad for any electronics). The included game is Knack, and is a great game with nice graphics and story. My son completed it in a couple of weeks. Overall, I am happy to see that he loves his new toy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game to play for weeks, 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My son and his friend have been playing this game for several weeks, until they completed it, but even so they haven't collected all items or unlocked all characters, so definitely it could be played even longer. In terms of the gameplay itself, it's really great. The graphics are fantastic and the levels are engaging with different environments and tasks to accomplish using different super heroes. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice case, 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The colour of this case is very bright in real life, just like it looks on the picture. In terms of usability, it fits on the phone very tightly and there are no loose spots anywhere along the edges or elsewhere. If you love green, it's a good cover for your Nexus 4.

This review is from: PENCIL CASE "BRIT ROCK" by Helix
Bought this case for my son and he likes it. The case is very light, but seems sturdy enough, and comfortably stores all of his pens, pencils, eraser, sharpener, and a few other things. The Union Flag and the overall design are nice too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but thin plastic connectors break, 6 Dec 2013
This review is from: Velbon CX-440 Tripod (Accessory)
This is a very nice tripod, light and easy to use, however unfortunately the plastic arms that connect to the legs get easily broken at the connection points. In a short period of time where I only barely used the tripod a few times, 2 out of 3 connectors broke. Have a look at the image that I uploaded (click the "See customer image" link under the main product image) and you will see that the rings are made of very thin plastic that breaks even under light use. I'm still giving it 3 stars despite of that, because overall it's a good product, but beware of the inherent defect.
