To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is my first ever review on Amazon and I couldn't stand idly by without posting this review. This cable is NOT a DisplayPort 1.4 cable. DisplayPort 1.4 is a standard which this cable is to supposedly meet but it does not. Buried in the description, there is some misleading info that invalidates that this cable is in fact not DisplayPort 1.4 as it doesn't support the standard. Do not buy this cable if you are looking to use 1440p @240Hz. This cable is shakey at best with 1080p @240Hz. I have tried it on multiple monitors and it doesn't render any higher than 60hz. Disgraceful that this item is allowed to stay on Amazon for so long in this state.
Functionalally, this cable is perfect. If your set up rarely moves, its absolutely fine. I regularly move my pc between set ups and the pins that keep the cable in place do not retract with the button anymore. Meaning I have to pull my cable with some force out of my PC , which is so painful considering the gpu is high end and this issue isnt covered by warranty.
Overall, the cable comfortably plays QHD at 144hz with absolutely no connection issues, ... it's a cable, and its reliable at being a cable. It may just be my unit.
- fits nice and snug in the ports of both my gpu and monitor - was more than long enough for my wide spread - all I needed was 4k 60hz so this more than met the requirements - I have been using this for several months now and I have not noticed any unusual behaviour, if I had I would have tested by process of elimination to ensure it was infact the cable and nothing else. - I heard positive reviews about UGreen, but they did not have the cable that fit my needs. - the latches clip on just great (if you plug and unplug often you might find the latches bothersome, I don't, I plug and fugettaboutit. IF you move your monitors around, but don't need to unplug, the teeth will prevent it from detaching) - I just tried unpluging it as I was writting this review to test how easy it is, and it seems about the same as the cable that came with my other monitor, so not dificult, but not too easy either that it could just fall out, just about right I'd say. - If the diplay port on your monitor, for what ever reason, would make it dificult to push the release button, you may want to consider going with a cable that doesn't have the latch teeth. - that's all I can think of.
Good quality cable but the latch mechanism can be hard to use. The latch mechanism does not have a clear bottom (does not click or bottom out) when depressed so it is hard to tell whether it is unlatched or not. Depending on the angle of your port, you may have difficulty unplugging the cable. Alternatively, this means it won't fall out easily.
