        I got this cable for my Mac Pro (late 2013) and HP E241i (second display).
        There is a connection compatibility issue between my Mac and E241i.
        I should have got DisplayPort 1.2 cable from the beginning instead of 1.1
        I purchased Accell UltraAV Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort 1.2 cable after all and it works perfectly.

          Using this cable to connect a MacPro 2010 with a Samsung 2560x1440 monitor.
          Works perfectly, far less $$ than the Apple cable.

          Just some jam when my cell phone is too close.

              Needed this to connect Dell 2713HM to Late 2013 MacPro "Tube"
              There are much less expensive cables but Gefen is known for their quality and this cable is well made.

                A high quality cable that accomplishes the job of adapting a mini display port to display port. Connectors are gold flashed and perform well with a solid connection that stays put - no intermittent connections.

                  The cable appears to be well built, is quite flexible. I'm using the cable to connect my PC to a 1440p high resolution monitor and it does the job. No problems. The cable is white.

                      I use this to connect my MacBook Pro retina display via the thunerbolt port to a Dell U2412M monitor. Works perfectly. White color blends well with other peripheral cables. Doesn't require any adapter to connect to the monitor which is a huge plus. Inexpensive. Allows for the max resolution that the monitor is capable of.

                      I have nothing negative to say about this product.

                        Comments about Gefen Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort Cable (6'):

                        I wanted to use my Dell U2711 high resolution monitor as a display for my 2012 13" Macbook Air, particularly for photo editing in Adobe Lightroom. I was skeptical of dishing out $ for Apple's badly reviewed proprietary dual link DVI cable. I did some research and came up with the idea of using a Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable. I turned down some cheaper cables of this type on Amazon and other sites due to complaints about flickering problems. I trust in the quality of products B&H provides and decided on this cable. I can say with confidence that this cable works wonderfully. Just plug and play. The quality of the cable is solid, sturdy, and plugs in with a snug fit into both my laptop and monitor. I'm able to use all different monitor presets (including Adobe RGB, RGB, Media, Standard, etc.). The other great thing about using DisplayPort is that I now can have my PC connected via DVI/HDMI and never have to go through the inconvenience of pulling out cables to use other devices. I will note that I've only used this cable for 1 day or so, so I can't report on the overall longevity. However, I'm assuming I'll have no problems due to the workmanship and durability of this cable.

                            Connected my Macbook Pro Retine to a Dell U2412M. The reason for 4 stars is that the cable is a bit pricey for what it is.

                              We purchased this cable for use with a new monitor. We've never used a Mini DisplayPort connection before, but it is working well with no issues whatsoever. The cable seems to be of very good quality, and I especially appreciate the solid connection with the PC interface and the monitor. The product description indicates its use for MacBook products and HDTV, but we use for a PC to monitor connection.

                                  Comments about Gefen Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort Cable (6'):

                                  I am using the Gefen cable from a 2010 MacBook Pro (mini DisplayPort) to an HP LP2475W monitor (DisplayPort) at 1920x1080. The direct connect seems to be more reliable and is recognized more quickly when I wake up my system.The cable supports HDCP v1.1. It was packaged in a plastic tray in a rather large box (5 x 10.5 x 2.5 inch). RoHS and CE marks are displayed on the box which indicates "Designed by Gefen. Made in China." The cable supports 2560 x 1600 and 1080P resolutions.Previously, I was using a DisplayPort to HDML adaptor that sometime would not be registered as an active port.

                                    Plug and play. And it works.

                                    Durable feel to it.

                                      This cable seems to be built well and works as advertised with my NEC PA241W.

                                        I recently purchase a Macbook Pro and wanted to use my Dell Ultra sharp monitor as a second display. The Mac has a mini display port and the Dell has a regular display port. This cable worked perfectly.
