Angusplay DP Switch DisplayPort1.4 8K@30Hz，4K@120Hz Adapter
8K DisplayPort to 2 DisplayPort 8K@30Hz，4K@120Hz Cable Adapter
8K DP 1.4 Switch: Support 8K@30Hz, 4K@120Hz, 1080P@240Hz resolution, provide you with transfer rates up to 32.4Gbps and backward compatible with all previous DP standards. (You need connect standard DP 1.4 cable to enjoy visual effects.)
IMPORTANT NOTE: You need to use a standard DP1.4 cable to connect this switch to work properly, otherwise it will flicker or the screen will turn black. Two displays CANNOT display simultaneously. While connecting to Source or Display, you must use the usb cable to power the splitter, If you do not power the splitter, your source or display can not show anything. Do not use too long cable(total 3m) for connection between the switcher and your devices.
NOTE: Because of the system limitation, our switch does not Compatible with HP ZR30W.
The DisplayPort switcher allow you to connect two DP source to one DP display or connect one DisplayPort source to toggle between two displays.
DP to 2*DP high speed 32.4Gbps 8K 4K DP Switch 1.4. But it cannot display two monitors at the same time
One PC connects two displays
Note: 2 displays can not be displayed at the same time
Two PC connects to a single display
8K ultra clear and visual 3D effects
Support 8K/4K resolution, enjoy ultra-clear visual feast, 3D visual effects and enjoy an immersive movie-watching experience.
8K Displayport Adapter Cable Plug and Play
Plug and Play: External power required, the DP selector box is easy to setup and operate.
Note: While using, press”select”Button to switch signal between two sources or displays, the indicator lights show the working status.
Bi-direction DP Switch Note:
1.Switch one PC, display shows one PC content;
2.Switch other PC, display shows the other PC content;
3.One PC is 8K and the other is 4K, then the display is only 4K, means the display depends on the lower one;
4.Two displays CANNOT display simultaneously.
You get what you pay for with this (Refresh rate does not update when switching sometimes)I purchased two of these to use two monitors between two separate GPUs. The GPUs and monitors are set to 144hz refresh rate. I use these to multiboot between Windows 10 and my Hackintosh. These little bi direction switches somewhat exceeded my expectations. However, sometimes (maybe 3 out of every 10 times) when I switch between monitors using the select switch, the switch does not match the refresh rate the GPUs are set to (it goes to like 50 or 60hz; very noticeable). In order to fix this I found a small work around: simply press the switch button again as if you’re switching monitors and then switch back to your active GPU by pressing the switch again. For some reason, this works every-time to reset the refresh rate to the GPUs configuration. You can also reset the refresh rate in your OS and then set it back, that also seems to do the trick. For $25 each, I guess I can live with it but I will eventually upgrade to some beefier bi direction switches. These are just cheap, but it works. I’m more of a ‘better value’ guy, not cheap.

Exactly what I neededI am reviewing after only owning one day, so keep that in mind. I did heavily use it. I tried on the following without any issues: 3440×1440 @ 100Hz (max of monitor), 2560×1440 @ 144 (max of monitor), and on an HP Reverb G2 VR headset @90Hz. Seems well built and switching is easy enough.

So far so goodWorks well so far. It does exactly what I expect it to – it allows me to share a 2nd screen between two computers exactly like I moved the cable from one to the other… without having to tear my desk apart to actually move the cable. No jittering, no observed frame loss or lag, full DPI, full detection of the monitor behind the switch. We’ll see how it holds up, but it does what I want.
Does what its supposed to…I needed a DP switch for a situation involving a 3rd monitor, and this unit switch does the job perfectly. I don’t use that monitor for anything with high demands (gaming, video production, CAD, etc.) so I can’t speak to the performance side of it. A few things from the design of the unit that could be improved are (although it seems almost all are like this one):1. I would prefer to have all the connectors on the back side of it. Having the cables plug in from on opposite sides makes it difficult to place on my desk and I have it sitting sideways.2. The blue LEDs are very small and dim, and due to me having to put it further back on my desk, it’s difficult to get a visual on it. This is really a petty complaint but something I noticed.If you’re looking for something that simply switches the input DP signal to a monitor, so far this unit has worked well.
Good little box, works as advertisedSwitcher is small, button is clear and works well. Only issue was the included USB power cable is absolute trash. The USB-C end of it bent and basically snapped off as I was gently maneuvering everything around. Luckily had plenty others.
May be issue with docking station.This requires constant 5V power. Many pictures displaying it do not show this. (Okay, one needs to dig a bit deeper.)This device encasement is metal and definitely has an industrial feel. This is not negative, but just information I share.I think that without a docking station, the problem described below would go away.>>>>>>>Here is the main thing which does not work as I thought it would. It may be that the docking station is causing some delay. Thoughts are welcome.PARTS: +computer1: new Dell laptop with very good graphics card. *using a docking station* +computer2: new Dell desktop with very good graphics card. +DP Switch (to toggle DisplayPort inputs to monitor) +monitorproblem:Step1: set switch so monitor displays computer1. – OKStep2: put some ProgramA on monitor (from computer1) – OKStep3: switch the switch so that monitor displays computer2 – OK //small delay of about 10secondsStep4: switch the switch so that the monitor displays computer1 -PROBLEMSProblem1: it takes about 25secondsProblem2: it seems as if computer1 is recognizing monitor for the first time. programA is no longer on monitor where I put it in Step2.I think the connection between the docking station and the switch is the problem. Because, I think the switch is completely disconnecting from the docking station.In fact, in Step3, when I switch the switch, ProgramA already moved back to computer1 (to the laptops screen).Any ideas? Are there some DP switches that will solve this problem?Unfortunately my laptop does not have a DP output. The docking station does, and that is how I planned to use this.

Close, but no cigar. Display issuesGetting terrible flashes and scan lines on DP 2 unfortunately. Returned and got a traditional KVM.

Works, but slightly temperamental if already a marginal signal strengthIt does require the usb power cable to be plugged in to work. Would have preferred it to be a microo usb plug instead of the circle power plug so I could use a different length cable if needed. Thankfully that wasn’t an issue for me.My gaming pc (g-sync, 144hz 1440p) settings worked perfectly fine out of the box! So that was really nice.I did have some issues with my work laptop going from usbC to DP then to the switch. I’m pretty sure it’s because the signal from the work laptop was on the lower end of being acceptable so adding the extra cable connections to use the switch made it drop just enough to want to flicker a bunch. I don’t think this is the switch’s fault, simply having additional connections cause a bit of voltage drop. This was fixed by getting a cheap DP signal booster.Which even if I had to get 2 signal boosters it would be cheaper going this way instead of some of the more expensive DP switch options.
Does not work with HDR gaming montiors at 4k@120 hzI bought this, to switch between my work laptop and gaming computer and while it works fine for the laptop it doesn’t work with my gaming pc. It will cause the screen to constantly switch between an image and a black screen every few seconds. And verified it was not cables. It may work at lower frequencies, but I’m not willing to drop below 120Hz, Kinda would defeat the purpose of a gaming monitor.Gave it two stars instead of one, because I’m using it as glorified power switch for my always-on-work-laptop to prevent my monitor from auto-switching inputs, when my gaming rig is turned off and constantly keeping my monitor on.
It works but constantly cuts out with slightest movementI don’t know what the warranty is for this item, but if I can exchange it for the same item I would. I have an issue with it cutting out if the slightest movement happens to the hub/switch. have another similar one that doesn’t suffer from the same issue.
