I am very disappointed with HDCentral on this purchase.
This is a great item in theory however the manufacturers description leaves some very important information out. If you decide to plug this item close to any other ports that may be susceptible to interference, then that is exactly what you will get. I plugged this into my laptop in order to get a better angle on the HDMI out lead... well what do you know... all the ports on that side of the laptop started playing up. My wireless keyboard and mouse completely conked out all together. Simply removing the adapter restores everything back to normal. Well it doesn't take Sherlock Homes to figure the problem out (or so you would think)
So like a good customer I brought my findings to HD CENRAL and asked them what they thought of this. According to them there is something wrong with my laptop configuration and there is nothing wrong with the hdmi adapter itself. They did not offer me a refund or replacement and so this has been a complete loss to me. This is despite explaining to HDCentral how hdmi operates independently of a laptops configuration and I clearly explained how the problem is isolated to interference leakage which points to issues of the shielding or that shielding is non existent with this adapter. It is crucial that all hdmi components have excellent shielding or you WILL get interference around the leakage spots.
Well thanks for your understanding HDCentral. I see you take your customers concerns very ignorantly and I for one will steer clear of you in the future.
