  1. I bought one and it didn’t support higher than 1080p (ish), so I couldn’t get full resolution on my Dell 30″ 2560×1600 monitor. However, bought the same basic cable from Lindy ( and it does high resolution, audio and everything else I might want. I think the price might be slightly higher, but they do near instant delivery and otherwise very happy with their service (now buy all kinds of other cables from them)

    No relationship other than a happy shopper
