Pros:
- very nice build quality
- simply plug and work
- does not exist 'officially' from Apple
Cons:
- absolutely none
Other:
as other users have said, seems that almost all Macbooks DO NOT output audio to HDMI output. The newer Macbook Pros, those shipped with i5 and i7 processors, solved this limitation and DO OUTPUT AUDIO to the HDMI port as well when using this adapter. I have a new i5 Macbook Pro and have video and audio using this adapter. But be aware that on older Macbooks you'll get only video. This is NOT a adapter limitation, that's a MacBook Pro (before-April-2010) limitation.
Bottomline:
if you need it, just buy it ! It works fine, but be aware that you dont have a pretty recent MacBook (as March/2010 i'm writing this), you'll not get audio because of your MacBook limitation, not this adapter.
