I need an upgrade in length but I also decided to opt for the 24AWG over the 28AWG. That was a bad choice. The cable is nearly twice as thick and hard to maneuver. Seems like a good cable but if you want to route this through monitor arms or cable tracks, the gauge of this wire is not worth it. Go with the 2AWG unless you need it.
Purty good. Just wish i would've measured out how much I actually need. Would've gone with 10ft instead. It's also very thick, mind you i really had no idea what 24awg thickness would equate too, so i would also drop the thickness as well if I could
Got these to replace the cheapo DVI cables that come in the box. Noticed signal degradation and artifacts on the cheapo cables, but once these were installed everything was perfect. Almost as thick as my big toe, making it a little stiff and hard to bend.
PROS: Long Thick Perfect signal propagation Badass looking
I thought I'd try the "higher quality" 24 AWG. This cable performs just fine, but so does the 28 AWG, so I'd have to say these are overkill for typical users. The cable is surprisingly thick and harder to fit in tight spaces than 28AWG, so on account of that and the higher price, I'm going to stick with 28 AWG.
I purchased this cable to relocate the PC tower at the rear of the cubicle desk arrangement. Bigger is better to transmitting electricity as it provides for less resistance and with that thinking I purchased the 24AWG. This cable is huge and heavy. I relocated the LCD Monitor on a decent size arm but I did feel some concern once the cable was hanging from the LCD mounted to the arm. The weight of it is substantial. I helped disperse this weight by zip tie-ing the cable along the arm. I don't recommend this cable for the home or office as the signal is digital and not analog, requiring less need to protect the signal against degrading. This cable would is better used for industrial application where there may bunches of cable near one another, or if the cable was articulated repeatedly. It would offer protection against signal interference and physical wear.
I have bought DVI, HDMI and Firewire cables from these guys. All great prices. All great cables. Delivery as promised (based on your shipping choice).
PROS: Best Buy (and all the other box stores) want absolutely RIDICULOUS prices for cables. Example: A 6 ft. DVI single link cable is $30...and it's about pencil thick. Monoprice has this 24 AWG 15' Dual Link DVI cable for $15.50 (and no tax, which pays for the shipping). It is as thick as my little finger. (PS: I didn't notice and difference in picture quality so you could buy 28 AWG and save even more.)
