This cable comes in the typical Uni braid and nice anthracite colouring. The picture quality is good, and the cable tidy is good. I tested this on a Samsung 4K monitor & a MacBook Pro 2018. My only compliant is that it the usb-c end is a little snug (tested in 8 different usb-c connections), which means its need s firm push to insert. This is unlike other usb-c from Uni products I've used which tend to fit well (therefore it might be just my order).
Je l'utilise pour connecter mon écran Eizo CS240 avec mon MacBookPro 2018 et High Sierra. Cela fonctionne. Par contre le fil est un simple cordon de tissu sans protection plastique. C'est sans doute plus écologique mais il faudra voir la solidité à l'usage.
So since lock down, I have been working from home. Home setup has two 29" dells monitors so I wanted to use the spare ports to plug my work Mac into them, so I bought this along with another one with mini dp. To be clear it works, I get a great picture and the cable seems to be working, my only critique, and to be fair this may be nothing to do with the cable and more to do with USB C, it does odd things to the monitor when it comes to power save. If I step away from the MAC and it goes into Power Save, the screen wont go into Power save but more importantly it wont come back on. I have seen other people with a similar issue and if I use just one screen on the Apple AV adaptor and HDMI, no issues at all. Its probably a USB C issue rather then the cable. Recommended but with caution, I have taken to power off the MAC at night rather then sleeping and the issue goes away, so almost sure its a USB C issue but you never know!
This is a good quality cable which works well with my 2020 Apple M1 MacMini, connecting to my display and giving 2k resolution @ 165Hz. A bit of information for MacBook users: The cable will only do 2k @ 60Hz when connected to my 2019 16" MacBook pro (and that took a time to sort out). After some web-searching, it seems this is a common issue with 2018 / 2019 MacBooks regardless of cable make - so it is not an issue with this cable. In fact, getting a bit more technical, when I run Windows 10 (via Bootcamp) on the same MacBook with the cable connected exactly as before, it works with 2k @ 165Hz. So It's specifically an Apple software/hardware problem.
The cable did exactly what I needed it to do for my work laptop - I now have a fully functioning external screen for the home office. Sadly, it didn't work for my personal laptop, but uni Online were great and upon providing model details, explained that the USB C port on my personal laptop is data only and doesn't support video output - so check your specs people :) I'm not concerned that the cable won't work with my personal laptop, as I have another connector for that. It just leaves me with the minor annoyance of switching out cables to the monitor. As that famous paint company say: Does exactly what it says on the tin :)
Edit: I have changed from 1 star to 5 as this cable does work with my laptop which has a USB C port and outputs video just fine to my Monitor, however it does not work on my NUC8I5BEH which I am trying to resolve with the help of Intel Support.
Original Review: I cannot get this to work on my NUC8i5BEH which has a USB C Thunderbolt connector to a DisplayPort on my Dell monitor, I get nothing. Any ideas? Thank you
Cable comes in great packaging, has great feel to it and really seems premium. I used it to work every day for 2 months with my Macbook Pro and it suddenly stopped working - I contacted UNI and they sent me a replacement free of charge which has been working for the last 3 months. Even though I had the unfortunate run with my 1st order, cable is of good quality and their support is excellent
