Compatibility problems with laptops and external 4K displays
Reviewed in the United States on January 3, 2020
The cable may provide a working connection between laptops with Thunderbolt-3 ports and external 4K displays, but it is never recognized as a Thunderbolt-3 device. Display bandwidth seemed to be limited to 4K at 30P without HDR even when both laptop and display support 4K at 60P with HDR. If either laptop or external display went into sleep mode, it was often necessary to unplug the cable and plug it back in to force laptop and display to discover each other again. During a live presentation or video conference, that would be a disaster. Regularly unplugging and re-plugging cables will also wear out Thunderbolt-3 and USB-C ports. Better to go with a bulkier and more expensive solution that actually works every time.
Replaced this cable with true Thunderbolt-3 hub with two 4K 60P HDR HDMI video ports. While more bulky, that solution is reliable and more capable.
