Could be better
on 19 August 2013
Signal wise it's fine - I connect the Mini DisplayPort end to my MacBook Pro, and the DVI end to my monitor, and a perfect picture comes out of it. Unfortunately the physical construction of the cable leaves a lot to be desired - the thumbscrews on the DVI end are only pushed over the metal rods, and are very loose to the point where you can't use them to tighten the connector, so you have to pull them off and use some small pliers. This also means that this cable is useless if you need to frequently connect and disconnect the DVI end. I intend to leave the DVI end connected to my monitor, so I can live with this, but this isn't a good product to leave in your laptop bag and travel around with.
Hopefully the Mini DisplayPort end of the cable is constructed better, as this will be used with my laptop.
