Displayport cables from Lindy, they any good

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello

 

I am looking to get this Displayport cable for my monitor from Lindy, however I cannot find them as a Displayport certified company on Displayports website. Also how comes they list bandwidth at 17.28Gbp/s and not 21.6Gbp/s like other DP companies

 

So is Lindy any good as a cable company

 

This one

Thanks

DisplayPort 1.2 sets the standard at 17.28Gbps. (Source: Wikipedia)

 

I personally don't see the point paying three times more for a display cable. Either of them should suffice your needs just fine.

I am using a unknown brand DisplayPort cable for my 34UM95, no issues whatsoever.

If you have heard about scan lines on the ASUS PG348Q, the ASUS cable is not certified, then a few people used a different certified cable and scan lines were reduced, that is why I want to change cable :)

Well, I definitely wouldn't pay for the more expensive cable at all if you decide to buy it.

Yeah, I am more likely going to buy the cheaper version, however I cannot find out if these cables are DP certified, do you know?

I went to the Cromo website directly and they also made this claim:

All DisplayPort cables in the CROMO range are DisplayPort compliance certified, giving you the assurance that they will work perfectly with all DisplayPort equipped devices.

Thanks, tempted to get the Gold one, however £55 is quite expensive, although if you want the best it will be expensive :)

 

It is difficult as I cannot find any reviews for it, unlike the Chromo cable

 

Thanks for your time

Though as a quick note, more expensive cables are not likely to benefit you unless you are that concerned about the materials used. If it's DisplayPort certified but only $5 and meets your requirements, it'll be fine. It is a digital signal after all.

One more question, is there any DP company better than Lindy

 

Yeah, however this ASUS cable is not certified and a few people are using different cables (one used the Lindy Chromo) said it reduced scan lines, so I just want a good quality DP cable now :)

I don't focus on any cable companies per se, as I generally buy cheap cables. Heck, I bought HDMI cables that were $1 that were totally fine.
