    Doesn't work with Microsoft Surface Dock

    Pros: Inexpensive, well made

    Cons: Not compatible with the Microsoft Surface Dock

    I just got a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and the Surface Dock, which has 2 mini-displayports. I have two monitors with DVI connections, so I purchased two of these mini-dp to AVI cables. Based on the posted reviews it seemed like it would work for this, but when I connected the cables to the dock nothing went to the monitors. I then found that the Surface Dock's mini-dp ports won't work with a passive cable/adapter, only with an active adapter. Although I'm sure this cable works fine for others, I was disappointed that the description for this device doesn't have any notes that it doesn't work for all systems with a mini displayport.

    Hello Peter,

    Thank you for your review and I am truly sorry for the inconvenience you've encountered with this cable. Yes this is a passive cable, so it will not work if the dock requires an active cable. I hope this helps, thank you!

    Hi John,

    Thanks for your reply. I have been a Monoprice customer for a while and really like your products. I'd like to suggest that your product descriptions clearly identify this and similar items as passive adapters and identify alternative active products if available.

    Thank you,
    Peter Hauck

    These cables handled connectivity from the Microsoft Surface docking station to my Dell monitor perfectly. Definitely recommend these.

    Pros: It works

    Cons: none

    I got this to be able to plug in dual monitors into my Surface Pro 4 using the Microsoft power dock (mini-display port)and it works great. I plugged 2 of these cable into my Dell 24 in monitors and it worked as expected.

    Pros: Nicely priced

    Cons: Failure

    On my office computer, I've had three of these fail at the MiniDisplayPort end (the big plug version). (This is the only MonoPrice product that has been unsatisfactory.)

    Thank you for your review and sorry to hear PID 5998 has failed on you. If I may ask, is the cable experiencing the issue where if you move it the picture cuts in and out?

    Yes. The MDP connector fails inside where the pins are soldered to the PCB.

    Gotcha, Thank you for that information. If you have the order number, I can help in setting up an RMA for a replacement if you would like. Just let me know and I can get that set up.

    I've already discarded them. Appreciate the offer.

    Nice cable, compact mini displayport plug

    Pros: compact size mini DP plug

    Cons: DVI side a little big and clunky

    I was happy to receive, as I did the last time I ordered one of these, a cable with a compact Mini displayport plug, not the big plug in the product picture. Not sure if they are now sending these every time, but glad to get them.
