What kind of cable/connector is this? It looks like an HDMI connector, with very similar pins, but it has a slanted edge on only one side and the other side is square.

    HDMI has two slanted corners, not just one. – Daniel Beck May 23 '13 at 22:06

    @slhck Why was this question closed as "too localized"? There must be millions of these ports and cables out there, and I found this question by searching for "HDMI one side square" -- this was the top Google result and it answered my question immediately. – Johnny May 21 '15 at 4:53

    @Johnny The rationale behind closing questions like "Here's an image — what's this?" is that they're not easily searchable and therefore will not help people in the future. In that case, with a little more context and description, it's probably worth keeping it. Thanks for your comment; I reopened the question. – slhck May 21 '15 at 7:09

    FWIW, I found this searching for "connector looks like HDMI". So this one is definitely pretty easily searchable. – Brooks Moses Aug 6 '16 at 6:43

This is a DisplayPort — it's pretty common on desktops and quite a few laptops.

  • Worth noting that you can use this kind of port to connect to HDMI cables if you just get a DisplayPort-to-HDMI adapter. They have the same basic job. – Noumenon Mar 27 '16 at 21:29
