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 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.
Aucun soucis avec ce câble, il fait parfaitement son travail. Pas de scintillement, ou d'écran qui ne reconnait pas, en tout cas pas pour le moment (et çà fait plusieurs mois que je l'utilise). Bon produit
Haven't had an issues with these cables thus far. I plugged them in, tested them, tested the buttons to make sure they remove smoothly; make sure not to yank them before pressing the removal lock buttons. I'll update if I run into any issues.
That said... I did some research, and I wanted to make some things things known. 1.) Model 102005, Cable Matters 4K cable (that's this model) has 28 AWG wires according to my correspondence with the company. 2.) The labeling on this cable jacket is "E474198-E" "AWM Style 20276" "80^C 30V VW-1" 2a.) AWM Style 20276 is the UL style/ as dictated by Underwriters Laboratories, which lays out the standards and procedures for manufacturing and labeling of the cable. 2b.) E474198-E is the UL Manufacturer code. I don't know what the "-E" on the end means but that is assigned to Donguan Arin Electronics Technology Co Ltd. 2c.) 80^C (Degrees) is the maximum rated temperature of the cable; 30V is the maximum rated voltage of the cable; VW-1 means it's compliant with UL's VW-1 Flame Test (aka Vertical Wire Flame Test).
3.) Cable Matters makes another cable, Model 102025 sold on Amazon, which is their "8K" cable model. They said that the 8K cable has 30 AWG wires, which in AWG means that 30 AWG is thinner than 28 AWG (Used by the 4K cable). 4.) Model 102025 (the 8K cable) is VESA DisplayPort certified for their 3, 6, and 10 ft length variations, as listed on the official DisplayPort website (Model 102005, the 4K cable, is not). 5.) Model 102025's jacket labeling is "AWM E321484" "Style 20276" "80^C 30V VW-1" 5a.) Since I explained Style 20276 and the temp/volt/flame ratings above, I need not explain them again. 5b.) E321484 is the UL Manufacturer code listing for Shenzhen Anpubaoguang Electronics Co Ltd.
6.) I asked in my correspondence with Cable Matters what the mechanical differences between the Model 102005 and 102025 were, as they look almost identical and the only difference in their advertising is one of the cables is advertised as 4K and the other advertised as 8K, including the cable construction diagram. While they told me the AWG (for some reason the 8K wires were thinner than the 4K wires), they could not elaborate further on any mechanical/construction differences between the cables.
Should you buy the 8K cable? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Without more information (or testing) I remain skeptical of any difference between the two cables, other than the 4K cable and the 8K cable are manufactured by two different companies, and that Cable Matters decided to certify their 8K cable with VESA Displayport, however decided not to certify their cheaper 4K Cable. Both cables are constructed to UL Style 20276 specifications, so they're similar, but those specifications allow significant variation.
At the end of the day I'd say go with the cheaper cable unless Cable Matters can demonstrate or explain specifically why the 8K cable is actually better, in mechanical terms.
I hope this helps someone, though while this review contains a lot of information, it unfortunately cannot draw many conclusions other than skepticism. At least we now know what AWG the wires inside the cables are.
This is a good cable for connection a PC to a monitor using the display port. The cost was good, the quality excellent, and it was delivered on time. The review form asked for my rating for "Sheerness". Since I do not know what is a "Sheerness" rating for a cable, I rated it average. Other than that, the cable rates 5 stars.
