I don't understand why this is an Active cable. The spec says USB-C supports Displayport signals natively, right? The description reads, "Just plug the reversible USB Type-C connector into your computer's video output and connect to your DisplayPort display." What's the advantage of using an Active cable for this use case?
I always get my cables from Monoprice as I've always had the best luck with their quality. This USB-C to DisplayPort cable looks exactly as it is pictured here and works great with my LG 32" 4K display connected to my new Surface Dock 2. 4K performance is fast and smooth. However, it does not appear to be passing audio through from the PC to the display. I don't use the display for audio and I can't be 100% sure that the cable is the culprit, so I'm just going to write this one off and recommend the cable nonetheless for anyone who is more concerned with video performance.
After not being able to connect my new laptop to my monitor through the HDMI port, trying something new with this connector was a god-send. It has worked great and the chord is thick and good quality/size.
I have struggled with my Dell monitor (U2715H) and my MacBookPro (late 2016).. I have tried 3 different cables, with and without a dock and had screen flickering or simply no input recognized. I was about to give up. This cable saved the day. Works great.
