Top critical review
Works as intended, but a deceptive title for some users
March 14, 2019
If you are buying this product for a laptop that does indeed support 4K@60Hz over USB-C to HDMI, or if you have no idea/don't care what that means, then treat this as a 5 star review - it will probably work fine for you.
I have 2 of this cable, and was extremely disappointed with the naming of it, and want to clarify something that really should be in its title/description, considering it is labeled as "for MacBook Pro."
While yes, this cable can carry a 4K@60Hz signal from a USB-C port to your monitor/tv - it can old do that IF your laptop supports such a setup. In the case of the Macbook Pro, you can only do 4K@30Hz over a USB-C to HDMI converter like this one. If you want 4K@60Hz, you have 2 options.
Option 1 - Get a USB-C to Displayport cable instead, if your monitor has display port. This is what I ended up doing. The Macbook Pro can do 4K@60Hz over a displayport adapter only. The same company that makes this cable makes a USB-C to Displayport cable that works perfectly (and even looks almost identical to this one, with the same build quality).
Option 2 - Get a USB-C to Displayport adapter AND an ACTIVE Displayport to HDMI converter. I haven't tried this myself, but it should work - You can get a USB-C to Diplayport cable (With a female displayport connector), then buy an ACTIVE converter to go from Displayport to HDMI. this requires a lot of cables/adapters, but such is life in Apple. You would also need to buy an HDMI cable to go from the second adapter to your monitor - so this may end up tripling the price of your cable, which is why I recommend option 1 if you have a monitor with a displayport input.
Other reviewers have not noticed or pointed out this issue, and it may not affect you, but for me it makes a very big difference to my workflow and use case for this cable. I would have rated this 5 stars if I didn't feel I was lied to by the title of this product.
