Does it work near a mobile phone?
I've suffered no interference on my monitor from my mobile which lives on the desk next to it.
How it works for me?
Concerns over cable quality:
Collective negative reviews paint a picture of a thin, weedy cable that's badly manufactured. I'm not sure how they decide if it's a "quality" cable or not. Like me, no doubt the only basis some "Mr B Hornet-Face from Wolverhampton" has as a basis for comparison on any electrical lead is an average each of our brains has made over all the years of all (or lack of) cables we've handled. Before a review can be written or the physical item be bought in a shop we must have an internal purchasing conversation to decide that. For me and a cable (and 99.5% of all reviewers no doubt) it generally goes:
Q: Is it a bit thicker than usual?
A. Yes. Its just shy of a thin-ish worm.
Q. Have you read the product specification to ensure it will complete the job you want to use it for?
A. No, that's what asking a question is for.
Q. Are you sure the bits on each end are the correct ones you need to connect your items? (If not, see the Questions footnote).
Q. Are the ends gold with a fully-complete black wire connecting them? Gold must be seen or at least mentioned somewhere.
A. Yes everything looks visually complete. I see gold.
Q: When you bend it can you feel the internal wires folding and bursting in an attempt to get out? (refer to cheap eBay ethernet cable purchase for practical example)
A. No. I can't feel the wires inside at all even if I make quite a tight turn. It also has the necessary resistance to force ratio I like to have when making such a bend.
Q. Inspect the cable where the bend just was. Are there any visual marks it was ever bent?
A. No, looks new still. I'm happy with it's overall bendiness.
Q. Does it feel more rubbery than it does plastic-y?
A. Yes. Yes it does. My fingers like it.
Q. Is it lighter than you expected?
A. Oooh no, there's definitely some grammage there.
Q. As per the "standard cable budget" does it cost less than £8.99 (please note for most cables at the top end of that bracket should be at least 3m in length but ideally 5m)
A. Yes, it's only 1.8m in length but as it's on sale it's now firmly back in the "good value" category.
Q. Do you have any technical knowledge of cable manufacturing techniques or processes, anything to do with any part of the internal componentry used within this cable or indeed have any idea what's in the black wire at all let alone having the merest inkling of how it magically connects and works those twos items on each end of it?
A. No, none whatsoever.
Result: Good enough. Get it in the basket.
Further notes on questions (like resolution capabilities):
If I'm not sure, instead of googling my Product Model and checking the resolution under a heading likely called "Resolution" I'd rather get someone else to answer it for me. I'll just post the 318th question about what resolution it can handle rather than reading the supplied product description of the cable which clearly states anything up to and including 4k @ 60hz over DIsplayPort 1.2 and gives the maximum pixel rate for 4k if you aren't sure what that maximum actually is. (So "Yes", either your PC/Macs gpu or monitor/screen combination will be the bottleneck not the cable). As a question-asker I may or may not even return the topic at a later date. If I do get the right answer that is found to be correct I also won't vote it up as a solution/helpful answer. I'm also aware when asking a question this could get me the correct answer but will also attract the Guessers, the Ill-Informed (it is possible to become a member of both with a single answer) and my favourite group, the Clueless who provide such (real and actually posted) answers of:
"I don't know, I don't own one. Sorry".
To respond to a question on a product you have zero knowledge on and don't even own is also beyond me let alone why you think your input is in any way helpful to that person or any of the subsequent 100s of people who will read it for all eternity who do like to read the Questions section to find the answer themselves before they also post the same or at best slight variation of the question over and over.
Like many others after me, I thank you for making our lives shorter.
Working well for several days now.
