Pros:
Excellent performance. Still photos and movies look great on TV especially compared to the AV cable I was using. Great price for this previously hard to find item.
Cons:
You may have to be patient. Mine took 3 weeks from order to delivery including one week waiting for the supplier before it was shipped.
Other:
When I got my Samsung PL150 camera back in March 2010 I was disappointed that it didn't come with any video cables although it had a proprietary AV port and a promising new-fangled micro HDMI port. At the time micro HDMI cables were like hen's teeth. I couldn't find any online and couldn't find any in electronics stores in Sydney, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore nor Shanghai. So many people tried to convince me that the micro HDMI port was a USB port, even people in Samsung stores! I hadn't seen any other cameras with micro HDMI connectors but recent mobile phones are now supporting this standard so no doubt that helped convince manufacturers to start producing them and dealextreme to start selling them. So I've been patiently waiting for over 6 months for these to become available at a reasonable price (sub $10). Of course I jumped right in when I saw this one for $6.10 in October 2010 (Especially with my native Aussie dollar very high against the USD). As advertised, the cable is only 1.5m. If you are using it to connect a camera or phone to a TV you may want to consider a longer cable so you don't have to sit too close to the TV. Apart from having to wait 3 weeks, the only other "disappointment" is that the price has dropped 8% in that time from $6.10 to $5.63 :-) p.s. I posted some comments about the Samsung PL150 camera at http://www.cnet.com.au/samsung-pl150-339301740.htm
Bottomline:
Delighted with this cable and will be recommending it to others.
