Rated 3 out of 5 by EuroSong Problems with 4k @ 60Hz
I just ordered a new 4k monitor (and graphics card to go with it). I read a couple of reviews of the monitor which stated that the included DP cable was substandard: I therefore ordered this Startech cable as a supposedly better option.
When I connected everything up, however, I could only get a 4k resolution while running at 30Hz (fps). When I tried the full 60Hz, the screen would either go completely blank, or flicker intermittently.
Obviously with 3 new items (monitor, graphics card and cable) I was left in a bit of a quandry as to where the issue lay. I initially thought it was the monitor's fault: however the thought occurred to me to just try to monitor's included DP cable, which at that stage was still in its packaging.
Problem solved instantly. Now getting beautiful 4K @ 60Hz with no flicker. The problem, therefore, was in this Startech cable.
I don't know if I just got a faulty cable (is there such a thing?) or if they would all suffer from the same issue. However if my Startech cable is representative of them all, and you want to run 4k @ 60Hz, I would be wary of this one.
If you don't need such bandwidth it will be okay. I ran 1920x1200 @ 60Hz without a problem.. and 4k @ 30Hz.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Miggerz Works beautifully
This was purchased to connect a Dell monitor U2412M to an EVGA GTX760 so that I could free up the DVI connection for another computer. After plugging in the cable and switching on, everything powered up and has worked flawlessly since.
