    Appears well built, doesn't work with Dell 34" Curved monitor

    I have a Dell U3415W Monitor which I have been using with a Thunderbolt 3 to Displayport cable successfully on my (old) 2015 MBP. Recently upgraded to a 2018 MBP, and this cable does not send signal to my monitor. Tried all ports without success. Apple returned the item without question - could work for your monitor, but didn't work for me.

    An essential part of my travel bag

    This is a really high quality cable that does well being coiled and connected repeatedly. I do a fair amount of traveling and work on-site with a bunch of clients. Originally I purchased a less expensive cable that stopped working after only a few weeks. This one was a solid investment.

    I highly recommend this cable, mostly because it's durable, but it's easy on the eyes too. The captured velcro cable management strip is really handy as well.

    Inconsistent

    I have been using this cable with my 15" MacBook Pro late 2016 model, hooked up to a Samsung 28" 4k UHD monitor and it is very inconsistent when it works and when it works properly. The slightest touch to USB-C side of the cord when it's plugged in causes the display to become interrupted and sometimes just shut off. The latest issue that I'm working through was halfway through a session of using it, the screen sizing (scaling) reverted to the same size as my laptop. I have no issues when using an HDMI cable, but the DisplayPort causes all sorts of issues. Be prepared for potential issues.

    Works great from 2017 MB Pro to 1080p display

    My monitor has 1x HDMI, 1x Display Port, and 1x VGA. The monitor's connections were extremely limiting, because I was trying to hook up two laptops to it. Before this cable, I was faced with two choices: 1) Swap an HDMI cable between the laptops when I wanted to switch which one I was using (personal & coding laptops). or 2) Hook up one of my laptops to a VGA conversion cable, which resulted in blurry text (converting digital to analog).

    With this cable, I can hook my MB Pro to the Display Port, and my other laptop via HDMI and swap between them with my monitor. I've been using it for a few days now, and the only issue I've had is a small red overlay in the very top right corner of my monitor that went away when I started doing stuff. Maybe it was something with my monitor, not sure, but again it went away and I've only seen it once.
