    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.

    Hello,

    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.

    Cable came in relatively decent time. Works as expected. No issues to date.

    Doesn't Work In All Applications

    • Scott,
    •  Brampton, ON

    Pros: Hard to say since I can't use it

    Cons: Doesn't work in my application

    Purchased this to connect a Surface Pro 3 to two Dell displays, daisy chained. Get full resolution on the first display, but second display only gets 1024 X 768 resolution (it's native 1920 X 1080). Spent a lot of time trying to solve this issue changing drivers, updating firmware, etc. Removed this cable, replaced it with a 6' cable purchased from Monoprice at the same time - and presto, full resolution. DisplayPort is supposedly designed for runs up to 15 meters, but this cable apparently isn't.

    Hello Scott,

    Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear PID 5993 did not work out with your needs. I just wanted to note that while Displayport can be ran up to 15 meters as mentioned, the full bandwidth may not be supported for that long of a run unless an active cable is being used. For 1080p over a Displayport v1.1 cable, it would be best to keep the distance 3 meters or shorter. Anything longer than that can cause signal degradation which would lead to lower resolutions. My apologies for the trouble and I hope this helps!

    Buyer bewared

    The cable is not fully satisfy Displayport standard. I use the cable for some other applications but found there is no VSS wire in the cable. if you use the cable only for connecting monitor that may be fine. but if you want to use the cable for Thunderbolt, or displayport hub whatever may need build-in power supply function you may want to buy other brand. BEWARED! this is not standard displayport cable. Shame on monoprice for just saving maybe a few cents per each cable.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your feedback. PID 5992 is a Mini DisplayPort cable rather than Thunderbolt, and will not support the same features as thunderbolt. Mini DisplayPort will support video and sometimes audio, whereas Thunderbolt supports data, audio, and video. If you need a Thunderbolt cable, we have PID 11578:

    http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=103&cp_id=10301&cs_id=1030107&p_id=11578&seq=1&format=2&rep=meow

    Should you no longer have a need for PID 5992, I can assist you in setting up an RMA for a return. We do offer a 30 day return policy as well as a one year warranty on our cables. Please let me know if you would like to proceed with an RMA. Thank you and hope this helps!
