The iVanky DisplayPort to DisplayPort costs $14.99 at Amazon, and it’s a great option for anyone looking to replace the original cable or connect a monitor further away from the computer. I recently was setting up a multiple monitor system, when I realized that the original DisplayPort cable was too short to reach the computer tower.
After a little research, I came across many brands, designs, and information that made the task to find the best DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable even more difficult, as there are a lot of aspects to consider. For instance, the refresh rate and screen resolution of the monitor, length of the cable, and audio pass-thru feature. In addition, you’ll also find cables that come with or without latches in the connector, and cables with or without DisplayPort certification.
However, after purchasing a cable identical to the original with certification and latches, which didn’t work, I decided to go with the 10ft cables from iVanky, and despite they’re not DisplayPort certified, and they’re built without latches, these are high-quality cables.
The iVanky cables comes in 10ft or 6.6ft lengths, the connectors are gold plated, slim aluminum alloy shell, and quality braided nylon housing. Although these are latch-free connectors, they stay securely connected and reduce the chances of breaking the port on your $500-$1000 graphics card.
The one I’ve purchased to connect my LG 27UK650-W 27-inch 4K 60Hz monitor was the space gray 10ft cable, and it worked flawlessly. According to the specifications, the iVanky cables support DP, DP++ and DisplayPort++, and they’re designed for 4K@60Hz, 2K@165Hz, 2K@144Hz, 3440×1440@100Hz and 1080P@165Hz/144Hz monitors. Additionally, they are compliant with version 1.2 specifications and backwards compatible with DisplayPort 1.1/1.1a/1.0.
If you’re someone who is looking for affordability and quality, you can’t go wrong with the $14.99 price tag for the iVanky DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable.
