Today, we added a very cheap USB-C monitor cable to our cables page. It’s so affordable because it’s shipped straight from Hongkong so in our case, it took about two weeks to get delivered. It’s a rather unremarkable cable: black, not very long and a rather bulky casing for the DisplayPort connector. However, it’s significantly cheaper than our previous budget pick: only 17 bucks. Although the description says that it’s 4ft./1.2m, that’s measured including the connectors. So for practical purposes, assume 3.3ft/1m.
That said, we’ve tested it and it works fine with our late 2016 15″ MacBook Pro when connected to our 4K monitors. It comes with a little velcro tie as well so considering its length, it’s a perfect cable to order and just drop in your laptop bag.
So have a look at our monitor cables!
