Works without issue. Works in 3 monitor nvidia surround setup.
Worked flawlessly the first time without issue. I used 2 of these in an nvidia surround setup with 3 monitors - the other connector is dvi. The graphics card is a 980ti. I wish someone would have wrote a review like this before, so that I could have bought with confidence... but since it didn't exist, I figured I'd better help the next guy out. If you're looking for cables for a similar setup, look no further; these are a cost effective solution.

Good, not great
Overall, this cable is great and is serving my purpose very well. However, it started out looking that that wasn't going to be the case. There is a lot of unnecessary bulk to the Displayport end of the cable; I base that off the fact I have much slimmer DP cables. That may not be an issue for many, but in my situation my video card is slightly recessed from the back, and by slightly I'm talking the thickness of a thin piece of sheet metal. That created a problem because I couldn't get the DP to fully seat because it was snagging on the metal back plate of my case. I had to open up the computer, unlatch the video card, and wiggle it slightly to be able to plug the DP in. It works, but it adds a bit of strain to my PCI slot on the motherboard. If it ends up failing because of the stress, and I lose an expensive workstation mobo, it will be a big issue... but for now, it's working great. Cable functions fantastic.

Good value, nice quality cables
These seem to be constructed well and so far the connection they provide is good. However, the casing around the DisplayPort (DP) end of the cable is quite large, and because of this I cannot use both DP connectors as the ports on my desktop will not accommodate the size. I don't believe that the ports on my desktop are closer together than normal. So I bought two cables but can use only one at this time. One other note I want to make, in agreement with other reviews, is that the product description could be made more clear. These are passive cables, meaning if the DP output on the computer is not processing the signal then these cables will not work; an active DP adapter would have to be used. The product description indicates (and I just checked again to be sure) that these will work both actively and passively. These cables will work if the ports on your computer have the DP with two plus signs next to it (DP++). If it has only a DP then the port is likely passive and will need either a different cable or and adapter in addition to these cables.
