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 my first ever review on Amazon and I couldn't stand idly by without posting this review. This cable is NOT a DisplayPort 1.4 cable. DisplayPort 1.4 is a standard which this cable is to supposedly meet but it does not. Buried in the description, there is some misleading info that invalidates that this cable is in fact not DisplayPort 1.4 as it doesn't support the standard. Do not buy this cable if you are looking to use 1440p @240Hz. This cable is shakey at best with 1080p @240Hz. I have tried it on multiple monitors and it doesn't render any higher than 60hz. Disgraceful that this item is allowed to stay on Amazon for so long in this state.
I bought two cables from this manufacturer, both with the fancy "'press to release" catch. I don't know what marketing genius thought this idea up, but they've obviously never worked with a Dell monitor. It clicked into the Dell's DisplayPort fine, but when I tried to remove it, I spent 20 minutes pressing the freakin little button and it wouldn't let the cable go from the Dell port. I finally used excessive force to almost pry it out while pushing their little "value added button" and it finally let go, although I think I may have damaged my DisplayPort on my brand new Dell monitor. I would dare plug it back in to find out, so I used the HDMI 2.0 port on the Dell with their supplied cable. I had the same problem with their DisplayPort to TB3 cable. If I hadn't have thrown out the packaging before this fiasco, I'd have sent both cables back to Amazon. Now I have to shop for two more replacement cables with a straight push in and pull out design that doesn't have this manufacturer's fancy click in-place forever button. Avoid this type of cable like the plague.
Looks like that after a few months of use on a VESA desk mount, the cable is starting to failing on me. It just can't output all the bandwidth, therefore, I'm able only to use lower resolutions (<480P and lower) and 60hz.
My monitor is 1080p, 144hz. My recommendation is to spend a bit more money and buy something that worth it. In my experience, the cheap cables just can't last as much.
Cable initially worked, but then soon after it became defective just from plugging it from one computer to another. I barely moved the cable. Tested the cable on three different devices keeps losing connection with the video signal blinking every 2 seconds.
I expected both of the cables I ordered to work. Only one of the two identical cables functioned at all. After the first cable didn't work I swapped it out with the other one I ordered and it worked. The return process was awful.
