10FT 32AWG Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort Cable - White
Connect your DisplayPort and Mini DisplayPort sources and devices with this bi-directional cable from Monoprice!
This cable has a standard sized DisplayPort (DP) connector on one end and a Mini DisplayPort (MDP) connector on the other. The cable is bi-directional, which means that you can use a DP source with a MDP monitor or a MDP source with a DP monitor.
The conductors are made of pure copper and the connectors are gold-plated for improved connectivity and corrosion resistance. Additionally, it is well-shielded to prevent stray electromagnetic (EM) and radio frequency (RF) signals from interfering with your data.
Important Note! This cable supports the DisplayPort version 1.1, which does not support audio and has a maximum data transmission rate of 8.64 Gbps.
Replacing this cable with a short Mini-DisplayPort male to DisplayPort female adapter cable and the 6 foot DisplayPort cable that came with the monitor solved the problems at 2560x1600.
PROS: Nice length, good color?, while it worked it did what it was supposed to, 144hertz
CONS: Failed twice....one ordered from here the other from newegg...
PROS: - Cable is sturdy
- Good length
- Connectors are firm
No active adapter needed for direct connection
Extremely fast and cheap monoprice shipping
CONS: White cord - doesn't come in black.
32AWG seems a bit low, but it works
PROS: Works great with my 2010 Mac Pro and my NEC MultiSync PA271W and very reasonably priced.
PROS: Woks With MBP 15" Retina Display & Asus PB278Q Monitor. Achieved full revolution (2560x1440).
They will *not* properly work with Dell U2410 monitors. The output is OK, except that due to incompatibility the monitor cannot be powered off and then on again while power or DisplayPort is connected: you have to unplug the power & DisplayPort cables, wait about a minute, re-connect power, turn-on the monitor, and then re-connect the DisplayPort cable. What a PITA... There are several threads about this issue on the Dell Forums.
The work-around is to use standard (full size) DP-to-DP cables, with a good DP-miniDP adapter at one end. Monoprice's adapter is OK, except that their design leads to a LOT of stress on a very small miniDP connector... :-/ Look for an 'Accel' brand adapter with a flexible cable between the miniDP & DP ports. Currently these are about $12 online, and work great.
PROS: Good construction & inexpensive (typical of Monoprice cables)
CONS: Unfortunately, these cables are not fully compatible with the DisplayPort spec. As a result they cause compatibility issues with some Dell monitors. :-(
