Exactly what you would expect from Monoprice and from reading the reviews
I would recommend this to anyone with a new or old computer that has a dvi port on their graphics card, I went from having some blurry spots when using d-sub to everything being crisp with this dvi. The cord is very strong, a little stiff so I am glad I didn't get the higher gauge cord, the male connectors are built solid.
So, in a nut shell.. the visual quality could be better (remember this is the low end cable), but the cable is built very well. I just wish I bought a second one with this, to have a spare if I may ever need it or if a friend needed one.
PROS: Very cheap for decent quality, the best you will find at this price and a very good step up from D-sub.
CONS: The only con I have is with the shipping, was 2-3 priority, took a week to reach me, for some reason it was shipped across the U.S. and then back to finally be delivered, so it has no impact on my rating for monoprice.
I bought this after buying a cheap cable on eBay and finding out it was a fake Dual Link DVI cable. This one actually is a Dual Link cable and lets you run your monitor at 144hz! Great sturdy build quality too.
PROS: -Sturdy and well made -Works for 144hz monitor -Good price -Fast shipping
This cable is more flexible than the heavy-duty 24AWG, which allows easy connection to monitor. Digital input delivers perfect horizontal/vertical screen position, no matter which display resolution I choose. Very pleased with this.
We ordered these cable to go in our computer lab, and we're connecting them to Dell monitors. They all work perfectly, but the thickness has two minor disadvantages. 1) The ferrite core is slightly too large to fit through the monitor's cable management hole. 2) The thickness of the cable (and lack of flexibility) make it difficult to route the cable through our cable management trays. Neither of these is a big enough deal to mark it down, but I wish we'd known in advance.
PROS: - Price
- Should be very durable
- Good quality
CONS: - Very thick, so much so that they are a little hard to work with
After purchasing these cables in hopes to upgrade my rig to 144 hz after a year of school I decided on a pair of 3 of these cables Unfortuantitly with the BenQ 2420T/TE editions of monitors this cable did not support 144hz... this did not make sense as the AWG should allow this as well as the DvI D cable itself Awkward..?
