Does what it is supposed to do,
This review is from: 1.8m - Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Cable by Neet® - ( VIDEO Adapter lead for Apple iMac- Unibody MacBook - Pro - Air & PC with Mini DP etc. )**Supports Audio** (Electronics)
It is after all just a cable and so the only potential gotcha is you buy the wrong one. I am not a Mac user (but was buying for my daughter who is) and it seems the newer Macbooks use the MiniDisplay Port but older Macs used something else. The packaging actually comes with a warning sticker on - presumably to aid the process of returning the wrong cable without opening the packaging.
1.8m is not that long. Fine if you are connecting to a desktop monitor but HDMI is more likely to be on a TV and if you wanted to plug it into a TV then it is unlikely that 1.8m will be enough and so you will probably have to leave the Mac on a table somewhere and then view the TV from elsewhere.
Only other thing to remember - and not a function of the cable is that you need to know how to clone your Mac screen to an external device. For me by default it extends your desktop to an external device. So you see your screen background and no icons or indeed anything else playing on your Mac. So you think it is the cable at fault. Sound does come down the HDMI cable regardless and so you know that something is happening. There is a Preferences setting for sound setting (and the HDMI based sound) but I think mine did it by default. There is no Preferences setting to switch between Extend/Clone as far as I could find. And no icon printed on the keyboard like you typically see on PC laptops to remind you which function key to press. I believe on the Mac it was the Command key and F1 that switched it.
