Having a problem with an Acer 4k monitor blanking for 5 secs while gaming. Swapping out the cable was suggested as a fix and found this at CM's very reasonable price. The cable itself is about half as thick again as the one it's replaced and looks like it means business. Not a complete fix for my problem, as the monitor still does it's little party piece, but there is a marked reduction in frequency. Happy to leave the cable where it is though :)
Hardware wise, it does what it says on the box, running 1080p at 144hz but I just have a slight problem with it that could be major. End of cable has button that when plugged in to my AOC monitor, faces inward therefore unreachable by hand. If you plan to unplug the cable then you may risk damaging the connector end and I think this is a design oversight (they could have buttons on the side of plug like a squeeze mechanism rather than the faces). I will keep a close eye on the cable and see hoe long it lasts for.
Review after a fortnight of usage: This cable clips in and is much more stable than the stock cable which came with my new monitor. My previous cable was very intermittent with whether it would display a picture and this new cable just seems to be much better build, a better picture quality and provide a satisfying click when inserted into the DP slot.
Cable Matters are brilliant. I bought this to connect a MacBook Pro (2018) with a Dell Monitor (P2715Q) - it is about the third cable/adapter option I have tried. Initially, it didn't work and so I contacted Tech Support at Cable Matters. They were quick to respond and offered me several possible fixes of which one worked (it was as simple as making sure my monitor mirrored my laptop). If only all companies offered this sort of service. So, as I say, great product and even greater service.
Perfect length for going between my PC to my monitor. Can't comment on the 4K capabilities yet as my monitor is only 1080x2560 60Hz, but my picture is clear and never had issues with it falling out the back or being funky when I move the monitor.
Had the cable in approximately 30 minutes. Seems like a strong and solid cable. Allows my display to display 1080p 144hz without problem. Does state on the page that it will support up to 4k at 60hz but i don't have the monitor to test that sadly.
Item has some clips to keep the display port in place. these seem a bit stiff but at least they are durable and i don't feel like it is going to fall out. No issues so far. £8 can't really go wrong. Will update the review if the cable fails or there are any issues
This is a sturdy cable, it's tough enough to bend so give yourself room. It will flex along a mounting arm but just don't scrim to much on length if you're wanting a tidy look. The picture seems awesome, i've got 144hz, i'm happy.
I have a 144Hz 34inch LG ultrawide monitor and when plugging in this cable, although i got a picture, i would constantly get a message on screen to basically get a proper DP 1.4 cable, it was quite annoying, So i ended up buying a much more expensive cable, So this was basically a waste of money.
