Cable works as described, but note that it is uni-directional. It will work with DisplayPort as the output and HDMI as the input. It is described this way as well, but my intended use case was the opposite. I've never heard of a one-way translation for digital video signals, but that does appear to be the case. I verified this worked fine from a Dell docking station (DisplayPort) to a Dell 4K display (using HDMI input). Using the DisplayPort input on the monitor and HDMI output on a laptop did NOT work. Not deducting stars from the rating due to my lack of knowledge on the reverse not working, but writing this review in the hope that it prevents someone else from encountering a similar issue.
After wasting a ton of time fiddling with this and it not working at all, I noticed way down at the bottom of the item description, it mentions this is a unidirectional cable (video source displayport, destination hdmi). I needed to connect with the opposite polarity.
Long story short, this is a cable. It appears to be well-made and it works, which are all one can ask of a cable, hence the five stars.
Did not work for what I needed, but I didn't order the right cord. This will only work with the DisplayPort as the video source and the HDMI as the output. It doesn't work the other way around. That being said, It was a quality cord that worked well when I used it correctly. Worth the price if your video source is a Displayport
I needed HDMI from my laptop to Display port on my monitor. I was in a bind and quickly found this option because amazon bubbles their options to the top. I paid extra for same day delivery. This cable (as others describe in their writeups) is only one way: Display port to HDMI. I have never ever heard of this before and have paid the price. Writing to reinforce that this cable will not work HDMI to Display port.

Before you purchase the cable make sure you are using it as Display port out and HDMI in. For example if your graphics card has a display port out and your monitor has HDMI in, you will see a picture on your screen. If you try to use it as HDMI out and display port in IT WILL NOT WORK. Dont blame the cable. Please keep that in mind when you buy this cable.
Nur um es nochmal deutlich zu sagen: Diese Kabel funktioniert NUR von einem DisplayPort-AUSGANG auf einen HDMI-EINGANG! Man kann also mit diesem Kabel NICHT einen Rechner mit HDMI-Ausgang an einen Monitor mit DisplayPort-Eingang anschließen. Das ist technisch nicht möglich und geht auch mit keinem anderen Kabel!
I almost didn't buy this product because of the ratings but then I saw the actual reviews! I brought this for my PC as the graphics card I brought only had one HDMI port but 3 DisplayPorts and I have a dual monitor set up which only have HDMI inputs.. This product works just fine (I brought it a few months ago) and there is no difference between the screens, some people just don't read the description fully! No, it won't work from HDMI to DisplayPort neither will it be compatible with 4K demands, it literally says it if you read the information about the product! I recommend this product for people using it for up to 1080p (and anything below) quality :)
There is nothing necessarily faulty with the cable but I'd advise caution to anyone hoping to use this for connecting an HDMI output (laptop) to a DisplayPort input (monitor). I'm not sure if this is something specific to HP laptops, Dell monitors or just the configuration in general.
This does exactly what it should. I was nearly put off by 12% of 1* reviews. Most of these seem be about where this doesnt work.
Out HP EliteBooks only come with VGA & DisplayPort ports but not HDMI whereas most of our clients facilities have television for us to hook up using HDMI. Every few minutes the laptop or the DisplayPort to HDMI adaptor (HP one mind you) hiccups and goes blamk for 5 seconds before taking another 10 seconds to return the image. Pain int eh backside. since using this DP to HDMI cable, the numbers of times this fault occurs has dropped by 90%. So it was a good purchase.
I'm using it from my PC DP to my HDMI port on my monitor and it has the strangest forced refresh issue, leading to a momentary signal drop, I've never experienced it with a cable before.
I tried to use it for (laptop) HDMI to (external display) DisplayPort, but don't believe it's suitable for that. Seems it's only a 'one way' signal. This should be more obvious from the product description. Not happy.
Does a good job but my Lenovo desktop PC had to have a separate audio cable set up as it wouldn't send both video and audio through this cable with Windows 10 and an Intel sound card driver. I ended up using a 3.5mm to RCA plugs for sound when connecting to a Denon amp. It's works fine but does mean it's not digital sound into the amp, however, I don't really notice it as a problem because I'm not watching films via the PC, just youtube videos
Posseggo un monitor Full HD in formato 21:9 con risoluzione massima 2560 x 1080 pixel. Il cavetto supporta, a leggere la descrizione, risoluzione fino al Full HD: ho sottovalutato la cosa pensando che, alla fine, nel mio caso sempre di Full HD si tratta, pur con un formato diverso. Evidentemente quei pixel in più da gestire nel mio caso, rispetto a quello indicato (correttamente) in descrizione, rappresentano a lungo andare un problema per il cavetto, che ha funzionato senza problemi per poco meno di un mese. Dopodiché mi ha "imposto" la risoluzione di 1920 x 1080, che è la massima indicata dalla descrizione e che sul mio schermo origina delle immagini deformate.
I purchased this to connect an RX 570 with 3x DisplayPort to my aging 1080p HDMI ASUS monitors.
Bought this to run my third monitor from the DP (Display Port) connection to my Benq Monitor Hdmi connection.
I ordered 2 of these and 1 was faulty. Replacement was sent quickly and works perfectly.
