    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.
