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.
Update: After the cable stopped working I reached out to Cable Matters through Amazon and they are getting me a new one under their limited 1 year warranty. Customer service was extremely helpful and I’m super pleased with them.
Original: This cable worked fine for 7 months, then one day it just randomly stopped working. My monitor and laptop ports are both working fine, but the cord just won't register on my laptop anymore.
I used to use Uni USB-C to displayport cable to connect my Macbook Pro 16 inch to LG 38GL905G and it is plagued with problems. A lot of time, the monitor doesn't detect signal and simply restarting the Macbook doesn't solve the issue, it will require me to unplug the cable from the monitor and the replug to solve the issue. I used to blame the problem to Macbook and the monitor, cable is just a cable, right?
I saw online recommendation on this cable because this cable can do 4k@120Hz (although Macbook would still limit to 4k@60Hz). Bought this cable, replaced the uni cable and all the above problem is gone. Cable really Matters!!!
I recently purchased a Samsung CRG9 to use with my 2017 iMac. The Mac has thunderbolt 3 via USB C connectors. I tried using a USB C to HDMI adapter and it was a nightmare. It had display issues (pink screen) and wouldn't wake from sleep, had to constantly play with the settings and unplug/replug. This cable fixed it all. The monitor gets the full resolution, and it wakes from sleep. Build quality seems good as well. Highly recommend this cable if you are in a similar situation.
