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.
I was a bit nervous when I ordered this cable because I had problems with cables from other sellers (with good reviews nonetheless). I even contacted the seller before purchasing the product and he answered in less than 12 hours. My problem with most of the DP cables on the market is that they don't work to the full Display Port 1.2 standard and at 2560x1440 resolution at 144 Hz refresh rate my monitor would constantly blink.
This cable solved my problems. It works just as it's supposed to, I can confirm that it works for 2560x1440 at 144Hz. I am very satisfied with the product and would definitely recommend it to others.
I bought an amazon DisplayPort cable as I thought with the cable being Amazon, with good reviews, and rep, I wouldn’t have any issues. At first I didn’t, all was well, but approx one year after owning the cable if the cable was moved ever so slightly the screen would flicker off and on. I could not use the swivel on my monitor or move the pc chassis at all without the screen flickering.
I eventually got annoyed of having to readjust the cable I needed to buy a new cable.
I looked online for a new cable, checked some forums and read that people had issues with many different brands of DisplayPort cables, mentioning issues of the monitor disconnecting and flickering. To cause confusion I found information that said the solution was to buy a cable with pin 20 disconnected.
After the monitor flickered a few more times, driving me up the wall, I took a chance and ordered this locking mechanism cable from cable matters, it works well, no more monitor flickering and I can even wiggle the cable slightly at the back of the monitor/graphics card, no issues at all.
Cheap solution. Cable seems well made. Problem solved.
Having made cables that go into avionics I can recognise a well made cable when I see one. And this is a solid piece of kit. Does it have fancy gold plating, braiding and shiny aluminium bits? No. Does it do the job? It certainly does at 1920x1200. I bought three of these for my three identical monitors and the pictures are all uniformly perfect.
I've owned mine for three years now and it's still working perfectly. For the price, this DisplayPort cable works really well and provides much higher data transfer rates than HDMI.
The only issue that I've had with it, is that it's quite easy to knock and even a slight knock temporarily disrupts the display and causes the screen to go black. This wouldn't be an issue if your monitor is further away on your desk or wall mounted.
Overall, great budget DisplayPort cable which greatly improved the delay I was receiving to my monitor. I would recommend this cable!
For whatever reason my existing Displayport cable broke causing weird stuttering across the screen. The screen in question has a resolution of 3440 x 1440, so slightly more then the typical 1440p monitors. For some reason I cannot Fathom, LG did not use HDMI 2.0 on the panel, so as a result anything being sent over HDMI at this resolution is limited to 50Hz rather then the 60Hz.
Long story short, went out hunting for a Displayport cable but was shocked at some of the prices in the local stores such as Maplin, PC world and Argos with cables starting at around £30. Before even walking to the next electrical store, jumped on the Amazon app, £9.99 next day delivery and was here by 10:30am. Plugged the cable in, set the settings to ensure both sides were set to Displayport 1.2 setting and voila, 60Hz once more at 3440 x 1440. Cant complain.
One thing to note is the Cable ends are quiet thick, as a result it does interfere somewhat with the back of the PCI-E expansion slot brackets so I found I had to move all my GPU's down very slightly to get the cable plugged in. Not the hugest of issue as its likely my cause causing the issues, but something to bare in mind.
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 :)
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.
