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.
Functionalally, this cable is perfect. If your set up rarely moves, its absolutely fine. I regularly move my pc between set ups and the pins that keep the cable in place do not retract with the button anymore. Meaning I have to pull my cable with some force out of my PC , which is so painful considering the gpu is high end and this issue isnt covered by warranty.
Overall, the cable comfortably plays QHD at 144hz with absolutely no connection issues, ... it's a cable, and its reliable at being a cable. It may just be my unit.
This cable just flat out wasn't physically compatible with my ArtPro monitor. There's a button that you push down for the release catches. The button itself curves up on either side, presumably to make it easier to use.
The button was extremely stiff to push down. Even when the button is fully depressed, the curved bits of the push button part still stick out. They blocked the end of the cable from being able to fully insert into the port on my monitor.
I guess whether you count this as a defect depends on how many different monitors this happens with. Before you order this, take a really good look at how much clearance you have around the port. This is a thing where millimeters count!
Hard to plug since the two pieces of metal that are suppose to fix the cable into place safely is broken, However hard I press on the button to release, it is very hard to unplug. I almost fear to brake my components.
I tried to find an affordable cable that seemed to be okay and have okay ratings. I settled on this one. I wish I hadn't. The cabled has worked for about 3 months then I started having issues with it basically having a short at the connector in the back of my computer. It appears the resting weight of 6-8inches of this cable is to much of itself to support on that connector.
As for the image, I have never used Display port cables but it appears on par with HDMI when it is working. I mainly run 1920x1080 at 144mhz or 4k at 144mhz, it I would have some freezes at time, but I believe that was the short in the cable.
It flickers when trying to play movies or games at ultrawide 3400x1440 at 100hz. Seems to work flawlessly at 60hz. Flickering was so annoying that I had issues at 100hz so I went out to buy another cable from 3dclub which was vesa certified. There was no issues at all from 3dclub's cable at 100hz.
Can't recommend Cable Matters cable if you plan on using a gaming monitor for ultrawide resolution with fast response rate.
It works if you need to extend your Valve Index, but don't expect the video feed to be perfect even if you use their active repeater like me. I get sparkles, sometimes a lot of them sometimes not so many but they are always there. Maybe I got a bad cable?
