Long story short, I bought a Mac (mini), decided I wanted a decent screen so I got an LG 29UM55 which is a 21:9 monitor. I plugged in with the Thunderbolt to HDMI port. No good. End up with a 16:9 screen with "skinny screen" bars on the sides. Full mode just stretched the 16:9 to fill and of course, that looked terrible. Read up and found out HDMI isn't capable of carrying 21:9 from a Mac, so I needed to use a displayport adapter. I'll be honest, I didn't know all the technical info on the cables and pins and whatever else goes on in these otherwise plain black wires. Decided I'd just try it despite some buyers experiencing monitor wake issues.
Glad I just went with it. Plugged in and I'm now getting full 21:9 resolution. It's been 2 months and I haven't had any monitor wake issues, so I suspect quality control may have been the reason some other buyers were having this issue.
Anyway, if you have a Mac, YES this works directly into the Thunderbolt port. It's a no brainer really, if you need this, just order it. Don't even bother with resolution apps, they won't help with getting the 21:9 over to your monitor.
It's just too bad they don't sell these in physical stores. I'd have paid twice the price if I didn't need to wait for it to ship.
My motivation for writing a review is for a niche group of consumers who may which to know this tidbit of information -- I'm using this to connect my work laptop, a PC, to my home display -- a 27" Apple iMac. The iMac doubles as an external display with an HDPC-compliant source, and I can confirm that this cable works just fine in this configuration for both video and audio.
Recommended without reservations!
I did all of the usual procedures with the MacBook - thinking it was a system issue (reboot, adjust the settings, ect). I also read that there could be interference from wireless devices near the cable. After having no luck fixing the problem, I ordered a different brand with more shielding from Amazon. I received the cable today and hooked it up to test if the new cable solved the problem. So far, it seems to be working flawlessly with the newer - different brand cable.
There is no such thing as a difference between DisplayPort 1.1 and DisplayPort 1.2 cables. This cable has no problem with 4K (actually 3840x2160) at 60Hz because I'm using it between a Samsung 28-Inch Ultra High Definition LED Monitor (U28D590D) and a Intel Next Unit of Computing 2.5-Inch Drive Option BOXNUC5I3RYH, and the UHD display indicates 3840x2160 133.3kHz at 60Hz.
I do have an issue where there is an intermittent failure to wake the Samsung display from sleep, requiring a 10-second removal of power from the monitor. I'm quite unsure about whether this is the fault of the Samsung display, Intel NUC, or Linux (Debian with kernel 4.0 through 4.2). I've decided to work around the issue for now by not letting the display go into sleep mode. I can't see how this could be an issue with the cable.
