Works with Dell U2515H and 2012 MacBook Pro Retina 13
After purchasing a Dell U2515H monitor I thought it would work fine with my 2012 MacBook Pro retina at full resolution 2560x1440 at 60HZ but the included mini Display port to Display port cable did not work at all. I decided to try this mini-DP to mini-DP cable and it worked great. Very happy that I can now use my new monitor.
I purchased one of these to connect my 2012 Mac mini to my Dell U3415W at 3440x1440@50Hz (the best available with this combination). I received it on time, and the product packaging is quite adequate. As a monitor cable, it works just fine, passing both video and audio without any apparent issues.
Bought two of these currently for my new BenQ 3201PT 4 K monitor. Runs 4K at 60hz on Win 10 flawlessly. I live in Australia and for the listed price I didn't expect much. Then the cables turned up and I was impressed in the quality. 1/5 the price to what retail charges here. I got recommended to Monoprice and will never buy retail Australian cables again. Shipping was fast, cheap and reliable. Thank-you Monoprice
I haven't tested this on 4K/60, but for a 1080p connection it's been working great. I'm currently using it to connect a 2012 mac mini to an Acer B286HK (the monitor handles 4K, but the mac mini doesn't)
PROS: High quality feel, no need for extra dongles
I have this hooked up from my work laptop (Lenovo ThinkPad W541) - my 4k Acer monitor. It works flawlessly. I get 4k resolution at 60 HZ. Mind you, I'm not playing any games so I cannot comment on how it will perform in those circumstances, but it works well enough for day to day programming / development tasks. I've been using this for a solid 2 - 3 weeks, so build quality is good enough. Bad cables usually fail within this time period.
I purchased numerous displayport - hdmi adapters in the past to try to get 4k on HDMI, but I could not get 60 HZ and the connection was incredibly unreliable (the adapter and cable stops working in 1-2 hours). Save yourself the frustration and get this single cable.
Build quality is exactly what you would expect from Monoprice. A great flexible cable at an affordable price. Thanks MP.
I've tried several cable combinations with both PCs and Macbooks and two Dell P2715Q monitors.. The monitors occasionally had trouble waking from computer sleep. The problem is well documented in Dell forums and basically requires you to power cycle the monitor by unplugging it to get it back to a working state. Using this cable (rated for display port 1.2a) the monitors have been working without issue for 10 days connected to my macbook pro.
