Cable doesn't work with my 2014 MacBook Pro Retina and recently (May 2016) purchases ASUS PB278 monitor
By Errol B.
The cable works with my 2014 MacBook Pro Retina to my 2 year old ASUS PB278 monitor, but not with the new ASUS PB278 I purchased last week. Initially I thought the display-port on the monitor was bad, but it works when I hook other computers to it with standard display-port connections on both sides.
I ordered another cable that specifically says it certified with Thunderbolt 2 ports. Hopefully that will work.
AmazonBasic cables usually get the job done for me. They'll still be my goto. The problem may be be with Apple and ASUS.
I received a Cable Matters Gold Plated Mini DisplayPort (Thunderbolt Port Compatible) to DisplayPort Cable, Black, 6 Feet (101007) that's specifically says it works with Thunderbolt 2 Port. The cable works with my new ASUS PB278Q 27" WQHD 2560x1440 PLS/ IPS DisplayPort HDMI DVI-D VGA Ergonomic Back-lit LED Monitor Monitor.

Perfect to extend Macbook desktop to Dell U2412M 24" monitor using DisplayPort
By Jessie Y.
Worked fine to extend desktop space from my 13" Macbook Pro Mid-2012 to the Dell U2412M 24" monitor running 1920x1200 resolution. I got this cable out of convenience to connect the Macbook Pro using the DisplayPort port from the monitor so I can use the DVI port to connect to my Windows laptop.
I was using a DVI cable with a DVI-to-miniDisplayPort adapter before switching to this AmazonBasics cable. Highly recommended if you want to use the DisplayPort connection on the Dell U2412M monitor to connect with a Macbook Pro. Seems to look more hi-def than my old setup using the DVI cable. I had to lower the monitor Brightness again under the DisplayPort mode on the monitor. Try 20% Brightness and Contrast unchanged.
Cable arrived in a sealed generic AmazonBasics labeled padded envelope.

Gives me the native resolution of my 2K monitor on a macbook pro retina mid 2012, so it works as expected. I am not sure this meets HDCP requirements to watch the HD content from Amazon prime video.
