3ft 32AWG Mini DisplayPort Male to Female Extension Cable - White

If you can't replace the cable you have with a longer cable, the best solution is to extend it.  Monoprice offers Mini-DisplayPort extension cables to extend your existing cable for situations were the cables just are quite long enough to reach.

Doesn't work with Apple DVI adapter

Pros: Works with Apple 24" LED Cinema Display and older 27" iMac in Target Display Mode.

Cons: Doesn't work with Apple Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter.

I bought this item a few years ago. I worked fine with a pure Mini DisplayPort setup, such as a my 24" LED Cinema Display or using a 2009 27" iMac in Target Display Mode.

I pulled it out of the drawer recently to use it with a MacBook Air attached to an older Apple 23" Cinema Display via Apple's Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter. I found that it cannot be used between the adapter and the MacBook Air. This was very disappointing. Ideally Monoprice would make a version of their Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter with a longer cable to get the bulky white DVI plug out of the way. Currently it's cumbersome on the desk to have to deal with the large plug from the DVI connection.

Doesn't work with the 5311 HDMI adapter

Pros: Works fine to connect my iMac as an external display

Cons: Does not work with the 5311 HDMI or the 6002 VGA adapters I have

I had read the reviews about using this with active adapters, but the 5311 is listed as being passive. I'm not entirely sure about the 6002. Both of these adapters work fine when they're plugged directly into my MBP.

At first I figured the extender cable was just failed, and Monoprice very promptly sent me a new one... that does exactly the same thing.

I would get a different cable, but this is the only MDP extender Monoprice sells, other than the 6' long 5502, which I wouldn't expect to be any different. Maybe I need to use the 6502 female coupler with a 5990 male-to-male cable instead...

Needs better labeling.

Pros: Cheep

Cons: Does not work with Active adaptors. (I.G. mini display to DVI, etc)

Got this cable for a "Mini displayport to DVI" adaptor that needed some strain relief. When I hooked it my computer did not recognize anything connected. I did a little digging and found I missed the reviews on adapters. This cable is a passive extension instead of an active extension so it did not work with the adaptor. It would have been helpful to label the cable with this information.

Pros: Eventually, good quality for price
Monoprice immediately replaced it free, no requirement to return the old one, no additional shipping charge

Cons: First one I received did not work

Customer service is excellent. Second one I received works well.

Beware that this cable (for some reason or another) does not work with my late 2008 aluminum uni-body Macbook. All other cables and adapters for the mini displayport from monoprice have worked flawlessly with my macbook. This one just will not recognize the external display. I'm pretty bummed. Also, as one other reviewer has mentioned the male end that plugs into the computer does not fit in a Henge Dock.
