The DPEXTAA6IN 6-inch DisplayPort Port Saver Cable/coupler avoids expensive repairs to a computer or display. It does this by extending the port by 6in, thereby eliminating the weight and stress that would typically be placed on the port by a DisplayPort cable. This is especially useful in an environment where cables are unplugged and re-inserted frequently.
This review is from: StarTech DPEXTAA6IN 6" [15.24 cm] Black Connector A: 1 - DisplayPort Male Connector B: 1 - DisplayPort Female DisplayPort Port Saver Cable M-F
Pros: I purchased this cable to switch my monitor between PC (for gaming) and MacBook Pro (for everything else). It works 100% of the time for the MacBook Pro. It works most of the time on PC. Most recently, Street Fighter V kept blinking in and out, making it unplayable. Plugging directly into the monitor and not using this cable fixed that issue. So pros:
- Cheap - Mostly works
Cons: - Doesn't always work when gaming. Sometimes cuts out 100%, sometimes "blinks" off for moments at a time. - I suspect this has to do with games that can produce higher frame rates, e.g. the higher the frame rate the more it cuts out.
Other Thoughts: Just know what you are getting into, a product which "mostly" works.
