    Nice. A little too thick, a little too shiny

    I bought this because I wanted a better-than-average USB-C cable for my car for my new phone (which sent me scrambling because, even though I have HUNDREDS of micro-USB cables, my new phone meant I suddenly needed USB-C... PITA). I have this plugged in and shut into the center console door of my car with the end hanging out to plug my phone into-- the cable is so thick that the console barely closes. Also, you get the sense from the pictures that this is a fancy, old-school braided nylon cable, and it is, but it's too dern shiny-- it's like a bright, silvery white and has a very feminine character to it, which I'm not a huge fan of. -1 star for that. Other than that, the connector is solid and chunky and definitely gives off the "premium" vibe-- and, as you should expect of ANY USB cable these days, it works as advertised.

    Works, but how well...?

    The cable has a quality feel, with what feels like brushed Aluminum on either of the ports. The braided cable lends it a certain robustness, but not sure how I feel about it, especially due to hygiene (dirt and grime may accumulate in the threads over time, and could not be washed away). The reason for only 4 out of 5 stars was that my device which, I purchased this for (LG Nexus 5X), does not charge nearly as fast as with the original power adapter and c-type to c-type cable provided with the phone. Now is this due to the power adapters I am using with this cable, or due to the cable itself? Maybe the charging rate is inherently lower with a USB to c-type cable such as this one in comparison to a c-type to c-type. I just don't know, the phone only seems to charge fast with the original power adapter and cable, so I am somewhat disappointed.

    Decent(ish) cable

    This cable works well enough for charging and data syncing if you're not picky or looking for performance. The charge and data transfer rates are subpar by my standards when used with my LG G5. After upgrading to the G5 from the G4, I needed a 3.1 cable to charge my phone in my car; which this cable allowed me to do, albeit only capable of slow-charging. The braided sleeved style of it makes it very inconvenient to maneuver any device it is plugged into, and the short length of the cable makes it even more difficult. Overall, if you need a cable in a pinch, this one will work for you. But if you're looking for a cable to reliably and frequently use, I would not recommend this one.

    It's a charge cord... what can you say?

    It works. it's yet another charge cord for the collection. Seems we can't stick with a standard because that would be too much like the right thing to do (though we've managed for a good long while to stick with the same @#$% outlet configurations in homes depending on the required electric output). Sadly, this was purchased to accommodate the Note7. I'm sure something else will need it in future, but as the aforementioned phone poses risk of incendiary incident, we don't really have a use for it. My understanding is the Google Pixel might be using this type. Good on y'all who will need this. It's a cord. It charges. What can I say?

    Another Windows phone anomaly

    I love my Windows phone. Mostly. So the Microsoft store doesn't have every app known to mankind -- I can usually fake it. The real problem is that, unlike every other accessory I own, it insists on charging using an oval USB-C connector rather than the ubiquitous rectangle-with-the-corners-cropped micro USB connector. Finding a USB-C cable can be a bear, because your junk drawer is not overflowing with them. The el-cheapo one I found on eBay was worth every penny, not. So I turned to old faithful Best Buy and spent what I thought was a hefty price. But it works great!

    I had help in store to find out the price of a unit and all of the employees were very courteous to me. The purchase i made of the "corsair H60" satisfied my every need. It keeps my AMD FX 8320 at 30-49° Celsius. Easy to install and asthetichs are a must got me so you know it looks good in the side panel of my case. I was able to find what I was looking for and at a very low price compared to other stores.

    With my recent purchase of a galaxy note 7 I found myself needing all new USB type C cables. This cable seems fairly durable however I wouldn't say there is anything specifically remarkable about it. The price however was very good though again, this was the only Type C cable that my Best Buy carried so I can't really compare costs either. Though it was cheaper than some Micro USB cables which for being fairly new technology seemed surprising

    Expensive, but excellent quality

    I needed the cord to charge a new Nexus 5X, which shipped with its own charger and a USB-C cord, male on both ends. I sought to retain use of the several full-size (typeA?) USB ports on wall chargers I already have plenty of, so this product meets that need. It is a very heavy, braided cord, so I expect it will provide me with years of service, probably far more than the life of the phone or even the USB standards for which it is designed.
