AmazonBasics DisplayPort to HDMI Cable - 6 Feet
A useful accessory for video streaming or gaming, this AmazonBasics DisplayPort to HDMI Cable transmits high-definition audio and video from your computer to an HD display.

Whether showing movies on a big-screen HDTV or expanding a workstation by extending a desktop with a second monitor or mirrored displays, the AmazonBasics cable makes it easy to connect.
Note: The cable is not a bi-directional cable—it can only convert signal from DisplayPort to HDMI.
Durable Design & High-Quality Audio/Video
For superior performance and reliable connectivity, the premium cable features corrosion-resistant gold-plated connectors, bare copper conductors, and foil-and-braid shielding, which helps reduce electromagnetic interference. The overall result: exceptional picture quality and pure, genuine sound.
The AmazonBasics cable supports video resolutions up to 1920x1200 and 1080p (Full HD), as well as seamless audio pass-through for uncompressed digital channels (7.1, 5.1, or 2).
The DisplayPort connector includes latches for a secure connection. Push the connector’s release button to relinquish the latches before unplugging to prevent damage. Whether at home or the office, the AmazonBasics DisplayPort to HDMI Cable provides long-lasting performance, strength, and optimal signal transfer.
Note: The cable does not work with a computer’s USB port.

I've never heard of a unidirectional cable, so wouldn't have even thought to check. This needs to be WAY more clear -- as in, prominently in the item title.
For purposes of context, I used this cable to replace the combination of an HDMI cable, and a DisplayPort to HDMI dongle, to connect the DisplayPort video output of my computer to the HDMI input of my LED monitor. I'd been having intermittent problems with the monitor blanking out or losing sync, as well as startup delays during which Windows seemed to be looking for something, both of which seemed to be related to the dongle; so I decided to try this cable instead. It seems to have solved both problems quite nicely. Yay!
While reading through the reviews, however, I noticed that some people said this cable didn't fit, didn't work, or reduced the video resolution. I believe most of those folks simply bought the wrong cable. Let me try to simplify things a bit.
1. This cable is designed to connect a full-sized DisplayPort output (for example, on a computer) to a full-sized HDMI input (for example, on a monitor, television, or projector). If that is not what you are trying to do, then this is the wrong cable for you.
2. The source (for example, a computer) must be DisplayPort, and the destination (for example, a monitor) must be HDMI. It will NOT work in the opposite direction. In geekspeak, this is a unidirectional cable, not a bidirectional one.
3. If you're running your display at 4K/UHD (3840 x 2160), then this cable is NOT what you need. 4K requires an HDMI 1.4 cable. This cable is only rated to work at resolutions up to FHD (1920x1080).
Finally, please note that you do NOT need a DisplayPort to HDMI dongle if you use this cable. This cable replaces both the dongle and the cable. So if you're currently using a dongle / cable combination, remove them both before installing this cable.

For Christmas, 2017 I received a Chromecast as a present. I was ecstatic, as I thought I'd be able to do away with this cable for good. At first, I had a hard time getting it to work reliably. But working through web-pages of tips I finally got it working. But it's not reliable. The problem with the Chromecast is there are times when the picture stutters, pauses frequently, or just freezes for good. - all while the video is displaying properly on my laptop. Nothing I've tried could resolve those issues. No other wireless device in my house has connectivity or throughput issues, so I believe the real problem is that Chromecast is still best left to early adopters, or used in situations where other solutions are not practical.
For me, the bottom line is the Chromecast is now in a a drawer and I've gone back to using this cable. What a joy it is to have reliable streaming to my TV again. No more picture freezes, and the video even looks cleaner. Putting the cable away after every use is a very minor inconvenience considering the aggravation of rebooting the Chromecast or restarting Google Chrome in the hopes of bringing back the video on my TV. Of course in the meantime, I was missing the streaming content.
Bottom line: This is a quality cable and I still highly recommend it!
Update: December 7, 2017
I've been using this cable for about 11 months and it has held up well. And that's despite the fact I've coiled and uncoiled it several times a week to connect my TV and laptop. Very good cable and highly recommended.

This is a thick and sturdy cable and appears to be very well made. I've used it for several months with no issues, and expect it to last many years.

I have since spotted a less obvious HDMI input on the monitor and the HDMI to HDMI works perfectly.
This will work if you want to go from DisplayPort out on say your PC to an HDMI input on a monitor. Indeed it works really nicely there.
It wont work the other way round. Its not a USB cable.
DisplayPort out to HDMI in. If thats what you want this is the right cable.
Purchased this to run kodi from my pc to tv.
Was running kodi directly from my android tv. But started to get rather sluggish. As my pc is probally 20x more powefull than than the tv seemed a good idea.
Tv was up and running instantly. Good picture and no issues so far. 1080p resolution.
Lots of fiddling with settings but very happy. Seeing details in films i never noticed.
This is display port to hdmi only. Not the other way around. Take note.
Strange thing is my tv comes up at 27hz. Even though set at 60. Weird. But all works ok.
I got two of them and they both do it, so I assume it's a build issue with the cable itself. I went out to a high street shop and bought a replacement (which funnily enough worked out cheaper, I didn't even bother looking before, so serves me right!) and it doesn't produce the same issue.
Cheap as chips and you get what you pay for which seems to be the general consensus for most Amazon Basic stuff.
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.
QUINDI: se avete monitor con anche un pixel in più rispetto ai 1920 x 1080 pixel COMPRATE ALTRI CAVETTI.
Avrei dato 5 stelle alla luce del fatto che l'errore fondamentalmente è mio. Poi ho pensato che allo stesso prezzo si trovano dei cavetti (come quello che ho acquistato in seguito) che supportano fino al 4K. Per cui, due stelle in meno per il rapporto qualità/prezzo non in linea con le abitudini di Amazon, che di solito eccelle.
Picture quality is the same as the rest of the monitors which use various connections. So am happy to use.
Would recommend for an additional monitor.
Hope this helps.
These are one directional Display Port to HDMI. They cannot be used for HDMI to Display port. Ignore any reviews that comment on this.
