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 a first for a HDMI cable. Due to the length of the gold insert, shorter than others I have, and thickness of the plastic housing for it, it would not properly fit into the back of my PC and make a connection. So basically didn't work.
It does work great when it works. Using this cable to run a 1080p monitor at 144hz with freesync. Every so often the monitor will lose signal until I unplug the cable from the back of the monitor and replug it in. Sometimes when I plug it back in the monitor only outputs 800 x 600 at 60hz. This has become a real pain in recent times, as anytime I shut off the computer I have to remove and plug the cable back in to be able to get a signal for what feels like borrowed time until another issue arises.
Otherwise, cable length is perfect and it seems robust enough to survive all this extra plugging and unplugging I've been putting it through since I got the cable.
If I get a replacement cable that fixes the issue I will update the review.
I purchased 2 of these 10ft cables for my new 144Hz monitors but unfortunately they didn't work. Not sure if I was just sent the wrong products because I tried them on my old 60Hz monitor and both cables worked.
You can't tell what these cables actually are since there's no product description anywhere on the packaging or in the literature insert. However, the build quality is decent, and the price is great. Unfortunately, they just didn't work as advertised. Best guess the ones I was sent are older versions. I will be returning these.
Received last friday. Plugged my monitor (1080 @ 144hz) last saturday. Thursday night my monitor had no signal. I tried the 3 displayport output on my video card. Tried to unplug/plug from monitor. Still no signal. Contacted the company. Since i was in the 30 days return, they suggest to refund from amazon and by another one. I did my refund today. Not sure i will buy a other one from them.
Suppose that we ignore the fact it was defective, the connector/wire seem to be good quality. The wire look strong so i guess he is hard to break. Do not buy if you intend to do multiple turn to reach the plug.
