We bought this cable (25 ft) for our conference room and now our projector randomly (and sometimes repeatedly) loses the picture. It never did this with the previous cables (a standard length VGA cable with an extender on it). I wondered if these ultra slim cables would have enough shielding, but all the reviews were positive, so I took a chance. But it doesn't work for us. But thanks to Monoprice's low prices, it wasn't a costly mistake. We're ordering one of the CL2 rated cables to replace this one.
I bought several of these for conference rooms to allow end users to attach to several projectors and a flatscreens. Eventually (after 3-6 months), all have failed. Colors go off as if a pin is bent or missing but no pin is bent/broken. Display will then have tint of blue or purple. I ended up replacing the cables with traditional thick cables.
Nice idea, and maybe works well if the cable is never unplugged/replugged.
PROS: Slim, light, easy to work with. Worked fine at first.
CONS: Repeated plugs and unplugs leads to eventual failure
I do presentations daily both nationally and internationally. I always carry my own LCD cables just in case. I LOVE these little cables. They fit in my cable/cord/adapter bag easily. They do fail from time to time, but for $6+ I can't expect them to last forever! I have used heavier cables that last longer, but they are just too cumbersome to pack and carry around. I just order several of these at a time, and then carry one and a spare - still lots less weight than a heavy cable. I have traveled for about 10 years and probably have gone through 10 of them, but again, $6 a year is nothing - just the cost of doing business! I highly recommend this product and this company. If you don't expect these cable to last forever, you'll be pleased.
PROS: Extremely light weight
Easy to pack
CONS: Fairly high failure rate (not a big problem for me - see full review)
I have ordered several cables and adapters from here and have never been disappointed. MonoPrice.com always ships fast, with a fair shipping cost. eXcellent quality and price. Good info on website too to make sure you can find and need what you are looking for. I can only imagine their tech support would be the same. I recommend MonoPrice.com to everyone who needs things for today's connected world.
PROS: eXcellent quality and price with massive selection
CONS: None, except that I don't run a business like this.
I like it very much. It's very lightweight & slim. So easy to set-up. The cable's not bulky and putting a lot of weight when connected to the devices. So slim that when I ran it across the room and placed a small carpet over it, you couldn't even tell that there was a cable lying under it. The picture quality was the same as using the heavier gauged cable.
PROS: Very slim. Easy to pack & transport. Very easy to set-up without the cable being to bulky & stiff. Great price. Same picture quality as the heavy gauged cables.
