1.5ft Premium DisplayPort 1.2 Male to Mini DisplayPort Male Cable - Black
Transmit DisplayPort 1.2 signals from your video card to your monitor using this Premium DisplayPort to Mini DisplayPort Cable from Monoprice!
This DisplayPort cable features pure copper conductors and nickel plated contacts. It includes connector locks at the DisplayPort end, with a quick release button built into the connector head. The polycarbonate connector heads measure 1.3" x 1.0" x 0.6" (33.8 x 25.2 x 16.1 mm) at the DisplayPort end and 0.9" x 0.6" x 0.5" (23.8 x 15.9 x 13.0 mm) at the Mini DisplayPort end. The cable is shielded and includes two ferrite cores to prevent interference from stray EM and RF signals.
I wanted a short cable to declutter a desk, and this works. It's thin (except for the coils at either end( and flexible enough. The connectors have a nice sheen. I'm using it with a 1920x1200 monitor on a MBP, and have no issues. The DP 1.2 spec should be able to drive 4K monitors. The cable also carries multi-channel audio and works fine in my setup.
Note: Not shown on the picture but the DisplayPort side has a clip on one side (as per the standard) so the connector has to be pressed when plugging or removing. This is like in any other DP cable I've seen.
PROS: short cable, good construction on the connectors thin cable
CONS: Short (make sure this is what you want)
CONS: Doesn't work for dual-to-5k application. Being on the bleeding edge.
PROS: Works for only a few weeks.
CONS: Failed to last longer than three weeks - the bad experience I will remember to not to buy more cables from this vendor.
