I connected this cable between my 2010 MacBook Air 13" and my 1920x1600 resolution 2006 Dell 2407WFPb flatscreen DVI-D input. On about 50% of resumes from hibernation or just from display sleep, I get heavy flicker, noise, and an unusuable Dell screen. Sometimes, unplugging and replugging the cable resolves it, but not always. (That also has the drawback of repositioning every open window, and I have to manually rearrange them)
I used the genuine Apple Brand adapter and a DVI-DVI cable for two weeks prior to buying this cable and never had this problem. Even now, the Apple adapter works without issues, and the cable does not. So it is not hardware related.
As others have noted, the mini-DP plug is huge and partially blocks the adjacent USB port on the 2010 Macbook Air. I can plug in small USB-sticks but not some more elaborate cables. Other lengths of cable on this site seem to have a more reasonable sized mini-DP-plug .
PROS: The cable is well priced. If it works for your setup, by all means get it.
Backed by MonoPrice's awesome customer service.
CONS: Flicker and noise upon resume from sleep (2010 MacBook Air + 1920x1600 DELL)
Huge mini-DP plug partially blocks the adjacent ports
The first cable I ordered I had a few issues with, but Monoprice was super awesome and sent me a replacement for free and super fast! You can't beat that kind of service. Will definitely make Monoprice my first stop for any of my electronic needs!
PROS: Cheap, great signal quality, plug-and-use, modified design makes the plug-in so much smaller!
PROS: very low price, very good build quality, works as described
