works like a charm
By Brandon P.
I purchased this cable in order to watch content from my Lenovo T410 laptop on a HD TV. The laptop has a DisplayPort (DP++) output and the TV has HDMI input.
Simply by connecting the ends of this cable to my laptop and TV, I had an 720p HD image of my laptop screen almost instantly. However, there was no audio.
The lack of audio was *not* due to any flaw in the cable. In the process of troubleshooting, I saw several websites which simply blamed this sort of no-audio problem on a "cheap cable" -- but, while this cable is certainly inexpensive (which is one of the reasons I got it!), it has no trouble carrying audio (and very clear audio, at that).
I eventually found a Lenovo forum which held the answer: "First go to your audio settings by going FN + F6, choose 'Audio Defaults + Settings'. Then choose your TV as the default audio."
This did the trick for me -- I instantly had audio (both through the laptop speakers and the HD TV).
The poster on the Lenovo forum also had this piece of advice (which I never followed, since the first step solved the problem for me): "Now the sneaky part. Push FN + F7 and choose 'Projector Only', then sound will come out of the TV. Took me forever to figure out." Again, I had no need to do this, but I'm re-posting it in case someone else does.
In summary, after some fiddling with my cpu's settings, this cable delivered all that was promised: crystal clear audio and visual from my laptop to my HD TV. Note: I have only used the cable on a handful of occasions during the past few weeks, so I'm not in a good position to evaluate its durability. As a previous reviewer has mentioned, when the DisplayPort end connects to the computer, it "latches" into place, and a small panel must be pressed in order to release it -- this "release latch" doesn't feel like the most sturdy thing in the world, but it hasn't given my any problems so far, and handled gently, I would imagine that it will continue to function just fine.

Buy the 4k version if you need 4k!
Excellent cable, I've been using it for about 8 months now. I've never had a problem with it and the quality is by far the best I've seen in a cable. I was using it with a GTX970 to a Samsung 55" 1080p tv. I just bought a Samsung 65" KS8000 and this cable will not pass a 4k signal. It isn't advertised as 4k, so this is not a fault towards the company. Just for anyone who wants to possibly do 4k in the future, you should buy the 4k version of this.

Perfect length for laptop > monitor
My primary work monitor is a couple of years old. Initially, this cable hooked up and worked as intended. Then after a few days, I started having issues with the signal not being sent and/or received. I thought it was the cable at first, but it turned out to be the monitor after testing it on my TV and finding that it still works.
Now, in order for me to get the signal going, I have to do these trivial but annoying steps:
- Turn OFF the monitor (take out the power cord in the back)
- Turn it back on after a couple of seconds
- Go into the laptop's display settings
- Fiddle with the refresh rate/resolution of the monitor and apply the settings
- Get signal on the monitor, and revert the settings to the native resolution/refresh rate
It's probably a DisplayPort issue, and definitely nothing to do with the cable at all. In terms of the cable itself, not much else to say besides that it works well. The cable is a bit thicker than I'd expected, and the latch is a bit useless as it just pulls out without pressing the release.
