Pin 20 erroneously connected

Pros: Works with 4K at 60Hz on my Mac

Cons: Destroys WiFi on my Mac

Looks like Monoprice has fallen victim to the "pin 20 connected" plague that so many DisplayPort cable manufacturers don't realize is a problem. Pin 20 is a POWER pin that is not supposed to be connected on usual cables (only captive cables for peripherals). Since my Dell monitor drives voltage over this pin, it dumps voltage directly onto the PCIe bus of my Mac, which knocks out WiFi while it's plugged in. On my previous laptop, the same problem actually destroyed my WiFi card *twice* before I caught on. If you have a Mac and you use WiFi, don't buy this cable.

My apologies for the inconvenient experience you have faced with this Mini DisplayPort cable. According to VESA specifications, the requirements for Displayport 1.1 cables dictates that the 20th pin needs to be connected. Our cables are fully VESA compliant and are built to VESA's outlined requirements for DisplayPort cables. I also wanted to mention that the DisplayPort line of cables is currently being refreshed. With the new family of DisplayPort cables, the 20th pin will not be connected as they will mainly be orientated towards use with displays. However, cutting the 20th pin will make the cables inoperable with many DisplayPort adapters and components.

Regarding the WiFi issue, if I may ask, what is the model and/or serial number of the Mac? Also, which Mac OS X version is it currently running? Please let me know so we can best look into this issue. Thank you!

I completely understand. Do you happen to know the exact year of that MacBook? If not, what is the full model number? The model number should be located underneath the MacBook. Or I can also check the specs by using the serial number which can be found if you click the Apple logo on the top left of the screen and look under the "About this Mac" section. Thank you in advance!

It's the late 2013 model. For reference, the monitor is a Dell P2415Q.

Thank you. Which OSX is the MacBook currently running? Are there any updates available that we can try? I also wanted to mention that I have been looking through Apple Support forums and this appears to be a common issue with MacBooks. One troubleshoot we can try is to change the wireless channel through your router settings. If the channel is currently set to auto or 11, I suggest trying channel 1 to see if that helps. If already set at 1, please test it with other channels. Should that not work, others have stated that lowering the resolution or even the refresh rate for the external monitor can make a difference. Please let me know your results from there. I truly appreciate your time and patience throughout this issue.

Just what I needed

Pros: Works exactly as represented.

Cons: None.

Just a note for Mac users: Check with Apple (online or at an Apple Store) to verify the correct cable to use for "Target Display mode". In the case of my Thunderbolt-equipped mini and Minidisplayport-equipped iMac, it's this cable that permits the mini to use the iMac's screen (and speakers!)

Nice Cable

Pros: Typical, high quality Monoprice cable. Inexpensive.

Oops - didn't read description closely enough to see that this is a MINI Displayport. Cable is so inexpensive that it isn't worth the effort and shipping cost to return. Don't make same mistake that I did!
