I wouldn't say buy from this seller, but the cable itself may be fine. It looks to me like besides being unresponsive, and apparently refusing to refund monies, this seller seems to regularly ship the wrong product.

Of the negative reviews for the HD/HD+ (BNTV400/BNTV600) cable, in a one month span, one was a failure to deliver ( I have had issues with the post office loosing a package recently - couldn't even get reimbursed completely, a long painful, and boring story but not at all the sellers fault ) and the other was probably the wrong product.

In the same one month span, I think I counted more positive reviews for the same product. So, I believe that the cable itself is probably fine...

That said, what I want to do is a case mod, or some type of snap on adapter that will hold the connector firmly in place and supply a standard USB port(s)/HUB with passthrough ( I have an HDMI adapter that I want to open and see if I can use for this ) in the bargain.

I am in no hurry however, so I don't know when I will get around to trying to do it...

Hopefully someone can find a cheaper source for this cable, for those of us on super limited income ( my mom bought my nook and hdmi adapter and case... )
