WHICH END PLUGS INTO THE MONITOR MATTERED!

4.0 out of 5.0 by C. Douglas on June 1, 2015
I just purchased the 15ft version of this cable for use with my Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 and Acer XB280HK monitor.

My setup has my computer in a ventilated closet next to the computer room. This helps cut down on heat and fan noise in the room, but it also means I need longer cables. I purchased the 15ft version to take care of this, but when I plugged it in, I saw HORRIBLE on/off flickering. It was worse for the ports farther from the PCIe pins (closest to the edge of the card) than the port closest.

I almost sent the cable back, but then I tried something odd... I switch the cable around and plugged in the side with the label into the back of my computer and the other side into my monitor. This completely fixed my issue. I can now plug the cable into any port on my computer and do not see ANY flickering. Why would this happen? Maybe Cable Matters only terminates the shielding of the cable at one end, which is a practice to eliminate certain modes of interference. This could mean that one side of my setup is grounded better and is able to sink any interference better than the other. Worth a shot if you have similar issues as mine.

TLDR: If you experience your monitor flickering on/off, turn the cable around and try it the other way.
This cable is not DisplayPort certified, here are the problems you will encounter.

1.0 out of 5.0 by gabe on December 24, 2016
When buying this cable, I did not know it was not officially certified. In fact, I didn't know there was really an official certification, nor did I know what that meant. I assumed that it was like most HDMI cables, and that since the signal was digital, it would just work to the standard set by displayport.

This cable will:
- Display a 1080p signal at 60Hz.

This cable might (untested by me):
- Display 4k signal at 60Hz

This cable will not:
- Display 1440p at 144Hz...sorta. (It will display it if you can get your computer to boot up, but it wont allow your computer to boot while plugged in sometimes.)

The problem I had with this cable was that when it was plugged into my GTX 980Ti and a Dell S2716DG G-Sync monitor, the computer would not start. Nothing. No LED lights on the power button. Video card wouldn't light up. Nothing, it was completely dead. I couldn't tell if it was a power supply issue, monitor issue (it was a new monitor), or video card issue. It turns out it's a cable issue. A google search of "PC Fails to Boot When DisplayPort is Plugged into EVGA GTX 960" will lead you to a reddit thread that states, "It's a common problem...you only have to buy a certified Displayport 1.2 cable and it will magically work, any known brand like a $30 Startech will do...If you also want to know why, it's because most Displayport cables (even the ones included with monitors) send back a 5v signal on the 20th pin to the gpu, making the entire system instantly power off, while the certified 1.2 ones do not."

This is how I learned that this cable is not certified. It does not have the official DisplayPort logo on it, which certified cables do have.

Do yourself a favor and just get a certified cable. You can view a list of certified cables at displayport dot org. If you need this for 1080p, I still wouldn't suggest it in case you try to reuse this cable later down the line and end up forgetting that it's incompatible with whatever you buy next.
Pros: - Cable is thick. It's almost hard ...

5.0 out of 5.0 by Jett Angeles on March 7, 2018
Pros:
- Cable is thick. It's almost hard to bend the cable because of how thick this cable is.
- Gold plated.

Cons:
- The thickness of the cable makes it hard for me to plug in my GTX 1080 and the back of my monitor, which is the Asus PG278Q.

Other thoughts:
This actually works with my monitor, it being Asus ROG Swift PG278Q, it's a 1440P monitor with a refresh rate of 144 Hz and it works flawlessly. It's just it my monitor/GPU makes it hard to plug in just because of how thick this cable is.
Quality it, exceptional customer service

5.0 out of 5.0 by Tony Viveiros on January 17, 2017
UPDATED:

Original order of both cables apparently came from a defective batch. After posting about this, Cable Matters Customer service was VERY QUICK to contact me and send me out two working cables.

The new Cables work as expected at a fraction of the cost. They are not fancy shmancy cables but couple with the customer service i experienced, I think this deserves five stars and will consider Cable Matters brands again!
Great product.

5.0 out of 5.0 by Nicholas R. on November 11, 2015
This is a great cable. After educating myself on DisplayPort vs HDMI vs DVI-D, I began to ignore the negative comments left on this product. This product works great. I have it on a 60hz 24in monitor. I know it will support faster refresh rates, but that is all my monitor can handle.
I have ZERO flicker issues, and I like how it latches into place as opposed to HDMI which doesn't. It feels more secure, so no fear of anything becoming loose.

Anyone who's nervous about DP versions and compatibility should read a book and educate themselves. If you have a modern monitor and GPU, you shouldn't have any issues.

Other than that, it is a cable that carries a signal from my GPU to my monitor. I see things, and can send feedback to my PC. I think it successfully completes the job. I would recommend to anyone.
Works as Advertised,

5.0 out of 5.0 by Corbin W. on October 9, 2016
Used on my Gaming PC with the 980 Ti. Cable is smooth and no problems displaying. I use it with my Pixie PX277 monitor 144HZ IPS monitor. I needed an extra foot and the supplied 3 door was kinda tight so I went with this cable. I'd highly recommend the monitor, if you're on a budget, and I'd highly recommend this cable if you need one. Can't beat the price or quality, 144HZ is smooth as butter, and Borderlands 2 on 2K 200FPS+ is a whole new game. Can't believe I used an Xbox to play this game when there was so much I was missing. Oh yeah, it shipped same day no problems with anything.
Noticable improvement from HDMI to Display Port

4.0 out of 5.0 by Daniel on September 20, 2016
Really helped improve my video output from the monitor and hdmi I was using. There definitely is a noticeable difference from DisplayPort to HDMI. The only thing I have against them though is the rubber cable it uses for the cable itself. It kinks real easy and retains the curves from originally opening the box. Outside that though it's cool it has a lock on it to prevent it from falling out. It's a blessing and a curse because at least for my monitor. My button is on the backside of my monitor so I really have to fight to get it out but outside that is fine.
DisplayPort Easy Connection and Good Quality

5.0 out of 5.0 by SR56 on May 14, 2016
Bought several sets of these for dual monitor set-ups at work. Haven't failed us yet in over 2 years of use. Inexpensive compared to other vendors for those that might use Staples or other business accounts. Well worth it if you've got DisplayPort PC and monitor hook ups. Works like HDMI with audio. Would be great for a single monitor setup as well. The cables are thick and durable.

I actually prefer these to HDMI connections since they lock on instead of just plug in. HDMI tends to weigh down on some connections since they don't have that locked in fitting.
Works great

5.0 out of 5.0 by Vee S. on September 16, 2016
Works great. I hate the displayport clips though. If tension is good for HDMI then why does displayport need irritating clips that make it hard to press? Were PC people like "you know how irritating it is when you can't get a LAN cable out of the socket because of the boot over the clip? What if we were to make that same effect on video cables? That would be great.

Worth it to not have to mess with overscan and crap like that. Plus my videocard is mostly DP ports now.
Thicker than I expected, but not overly stiff

5.0 out of 5.0 by A. Holaway on January 3, 2014
This cable is a lot bigger than I expected it to be, but still remains very flexible. I use this cable to connect my work laptop to my Dell 23" monitor when working from home. The cable needed to be flexible because it runs about a foot to the back of my desk and then takes a 90-degree turn downward to get out of sight (I hate seeing cables on my desk). This bend in the cable has introduce no degradation of video quality and doesn't appear to have caused any damage to the cable or jacket either.

Because I work from home only one day per week, this cable is plugged in or unplugged at least twice per week. After a few months of this light abuse, the connector is still in excellent shape. At first, I had to get used to the push-button release, as I'm used to using HDMI cables which don't have any sort of latches. Despite some accidental abuse there, the connector still connects with a satisfying click and holds the cable firmly in place.

Video quality through this cable is excellent. I've run a number of tests on it and don't see any noise or artifacts, and the colors on the Dell monitor are as faithfully reproduced as they are with the DVI cable I've had connected to my gaming desktop for years. I can't speak for any longer distances as I don't own those cables, but the 6-foot cable is great.

All in all, this cable feels like a high quality cable and has excellent video quality. Highly recommended!
