Bad luck with defective cable
Reviewed in Canada on May 15, 2019
I purchased this to connect an RX 570 with 3x DisplayPort to my aging 1080p HDMI ASUS monitors.
During the first 30 minutes, everything worked well. But then one of my monitors stopped working.
I swapped the cable between two monitors to check if it was the cable, it looked like it was a faulty cable. Okay, defective cables happen, Amazon has a good return policy.
But when I plugged the original HDMI cable back into my monitor, it no longer worked. I actually found that the HDMI ports on both of the monitors I had plugged this cable into were dead now, and couldn't accept signals anymore.
So the defective cable I received actually damaged the HDMI inputs on two of my monitors. I replaced it with some DisplayPort to DVI adapters for my own needs, but HDMI is toast.
Based on the reviews here, the defect rate is low, and you run this risk any time you buy any cable anywhere. I think I just won the bad defect lottery.
