Mini Display Port Male to Male Cable vs Thunderbolt to Thunderbolt

Hello all


Before I spend my money on expensive Thunderbolt cables. I want to use a machine to check another machines display, mirror the contents on a bigger screen.


I ask this question; has anyone successfully connected their MacBook Pro to iMac using a mini display port male to male cable ? (plugged into both thunderbolt ports on both machines) CMD + F2 ?


I know Thunderbolt to Thunderbolt cable will do it, but will the mini display port cable male to male do it also ?


Any downsides to using the mini display male to male cable ?


I know I could check the display using a mini display port cable to HDMI adapter and just connect direct to TV also.


Thanks for reading.
