Cons It says DVI-D, unfortunately the one I received was DVI-I
Summary Cable works, good price. After opening I realized that the cable I had received was most certainly a DVI-I cable, not the DVI-D cable listed. My computer monitor only takes DVI-D, so this almost was a deal breaker since while you can plug DVI-D cables into DVI-I slots, you cannot plug DVI-I cables into DVI-D slots.
Thankfully, my home theatre PC and TV both take DVI-I connectors and they had a DVI-D cable which I purchased from NCIX many moons ago in there. Simply swapped the cables, and saves me the hassle of trying to return.
Before buying, you might want to phone them and double check that it is for SURE a DVI-D cable you are recieving, and what your options are in case it is not.
Pros 24K Gold Connectors Very Durable Cable High Quality Very Flexible
Cons Will only work with DVI-I (Dual Link) Connections Not the easiest to tighten down with provided thumbscrews
Summary Bought this the other day and its a very high quality cable, better than my $20 ION braided cable but I wouldn't pay the $100 price tag. NCIX should change the name of this to show that its a DVI-I cable and not just DVI. People make sure to check which type of connection you have on both your components that you are connecting this cable to. The following image can be used to determine which type you can, if you have a DVI-I, you'll be good to go, if you have one of the other types, this will not work unless your prepared to pull/snip pins which would be difficult to do properly. [IMG]http://i39.tinypic.com/20uwgih.jpg[/IMG] The thumbscrews used to secure the connection are round with small grooved slots spaced around it. Made of a plastic with clear coating where you grip, they slip between your thumb and fingers very easy while tightening. This is really normally not something to be picky about, but paying over $100 for a single cable it should be able to attach itself with two claps of the hands.
My only real issue with these are the price, its top of the line but as with all monster products, overpriced. You won't find a much better cable on the shelf in a retail outlet, unless you went to a high end pro audio seller. Saying that, I have to give it 5 stars as its a killer cable if you have the money to blow or get it on sale then its definetly worth it.
Pros Quality, like the feel of the cable and a good length at 8 feet.
Summary Not really much to say about a DVI cable. The quality is good but what do you expect from Monster Cable. The retail price is not worth it but when they are sale for $13, you can't go wrong. You are getting a high end cable for a bargain price cable.
