    Tough time reviewing lots of likes and concerns

    Plus. The machine is light and portable. The graphics are amazing. I liked the w10 interface better than w8.n (a step forward). Good battery life. Great storage space. Love the layout and the 2 in 1 features. Minus. Windows 10 is a big disappointment. Very intrusive (I choose who steals my online info not MS) and challenging to configure. Uninstalled apps and features only to have them reinstalled on next boot. Meaningful settings to me are buried or not available (not used to home versions thought so it might be normal). I tried to install Windows 7 on the machine but as of yet am unable. Have gone to the toshiba site looking for input from an online tech and was unable to find a chat/help link. The only thing I found was how to restore a previous version. The machine locks up when I boot to a w7 ultimate install disk. I would recommend this machine to an average home user that wants to surf, watch videos, listen to music and do light office work. Not for someone that needs performance beyond gaming.

    Cheaply made product

    I have bought this product twice now and both have stopped working within weeks despite being treated with care. I purchased this cord for usage with my over-ear headphones whose corresponding cord broke after years of usage. Within a week and a half of my first purchase, the sound was distorted via the cord. I returned the cord and got a free replacement. The replacement worked for three weeks and then I could only hear out of one ear. As a result, I bought another cord as it was now past the return/exchange period, yet the same has happened. My cord is kept neatly wound in a Cord Taco and I only use my headphones during my commute to work. I would not recommend this product and am upset at the waste of money.

    I bought this 6' 3.5mm Mini Audio Cable so I could extend the distance between my laptop and my digital recorder when I'm recording webinars. It does everything I expected of it...it allows the appropriate separation with no skips or stutters in the recorded audio. As a bonus, the black color contrasts nicely with the oak finish on the table top that I rest the cable on. Very happy with this purchase!

    Bad cable is bad

    I purchased this cable for amplifier I have hooked up to my computer. I've owned dacs/amps before so I knew what type of sound quality to expect. But when I used this insignia cable, it was downright awful. Could of been a lemon who knows. There was so much interference noise and hissing that I thought I had gotten a bad amp. I hooked this cable up to my phone and plugged it into some speakers for the same result. For 15$+ I would expect alot more. I ended up taking the item back and purchased a mediabridge cable off of amazon. Amazing cable, and only 5-10$ depending on the length you get. Save yourself your money and don't purchase this cable for any of your audio needs.

    I purchased this cable to connect a 22" Visio TV to a Samsung sound bar. Most smaller tv's don't have optical or Bluetooth audio out options, mine is no exception. As the tv only had an earphone out jack, this cable was required. There were several more and costlier options available but I settled on this as I didn't want to pay a fortune for a tv that is a secondary unit in my home. There is a bit of resistance in the output which causes me to turn the tv audio nearly to max to get any level of usable audio from the sound bar. A better quality cable would likely not have this issue. Regardless, it's working just fine and was at a good price point.

    This thing came in handy for me I was rearranging the living room, but only the furniture not the tv. Wasn't really thinking at that moment What about the bluetooth adapter I have hooked to the tv. It sits on a nightstand by the couch. Well I was short of the tv by about 5ft so I thought I would run to best buy and they had this 6ft 3.5mm audio cable there and I thought perfect and it was if your in a tight bind like I was. I recommend this part

    Mainly used in a vehicle with a dongle for my iPhone X. Bought as a replacement for a cord that was cutting out and it honestly felt like Christmas pulling out of my local Best Buy. Never had an issue with sound quality, and again it’s always used with a dongle, so that has seriously surprised me. Even closed it in my door on accident once or twice and it’s yet to cause any issue. Great product, well worth the investment.

    Purchased this cable because I needed to have my Mcintosh MX122 processor trigger on my Mcintosh MC8207 and B&K reference 200.3 amplifiers for my Home Theater. I learned that the Mcintosh amplifier requires a stereo trigger signal, one to turn on the amplifier and two to send power to the VU meter which shows wattage output. The price for the cable is very fair and the build quality is as expected and have had zero issues.

    I have some old audio cables that were thin and broke at the ends revealing wires, so I finally broke down and bought some new ones. There were some really cheap ones under $10, and debated getting not to get cheapy, but broke down and got these instead, these were $15 so not too much but more than what I wanted to pay for but bought them anyway on a whim. Works great and I don't feel like they are too thin.

    This is the first time I was able to buy a matching set of samsung . Unfortunately the last Samsung washer was recalled, it was a safety ishue. I was issued a rebate for the recalled and chose to use it on a new set, because my dryer needed replaced also. Best Buy is always my go to for everything I need . My new home has a complete kitchen set of appliances, to my tv, stereo, and washer and dryer, love that place!

    The length is accurate. The weight is light; it's a thin cable, so I hope it stands the test of time. I feel it was overpriced... three times the price of the extension cable of the same length. The only difference between the two are the connectors.. this one has two male ends, the extension cable has one male, one female. I doesn't make sense being such a different price.

    The Insignia - 6' 3.5mm Mini Audio Cable liberated me from the need to use an FM transmitter connecting my iPhone music to my 1997 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC aftermarket radio. In conjunction with an AUX input heretofore unavailable, the Insignia - 6' 3.5mm Mini Audio Cable eliminated extraneous signal interference and static noise so that only the fidelity of the music emanates from the system.

    I needed an added audio output for my laptop while on a recent get away. The condo I rented had the cheapest tv package and I needed to stream video with my laptop. To enhance the audio I traveled to a Charleston Bestbuy and purchased this audio input cord. Coupled with my JBL Bluetooth speaker I was able to enjoy music and videos.

    This cable was purchased to mate a portable battery powered CD player to the aux input in my automobile. Either the CD player or the cable do not work as they were described to work by the sales representative in the Best Buy store. Bottom line the cable did not work.

    We purchased our first Bose speaker in 2016. When we were in need of another speaker we did not even consider any others as we had been so happy with our Bose. My husband is very hard hearing and he can hear and understand the dialog on the programs. Bose is the best in our opinion.

    This is an Audio cable, not a trigger cable

    I purchased this for use as a trigger cable between my Panamax unit and my amp. Oops. A trigger cable looks very much like this one, but the plug tip is different. If you're looking for a trigger cable, this not going to work. It's probably fine as an audio cable (since that's what it's called. Duh!), but I have no need of it for that purpose.

    Iv purchased 3 or 4 of these cords in the past. They work great for a while, but after wear and tear they sometimes have connectivity issues. If I remember correctly they have a great warranty!!!! (They replace them) Which is great if I have time to return LOL

    These types of wires are all the same. They work good at first and with the slightest use, they get a short and you have to "shake" the short out or the sound will cut out. I thought that maybe at this price point I was buying better quality ($15). But it's the same quality that I used to eat at radio shack when I was 15. I don't recommend.

    Purchased for our vehicle Aux Port- it worked just as expected. Unfortunately, the Aux port in the car itself is intermittent so we are still having some issue. However, this has nothing to do with the headphone extension cable we got. Overall this seems to be a good product and meets our needs.

    This was my third attempt to hookup my new smart TV with a DVD player and a set of speakers... the prior two attempts were configuration suggestions by Best Buy staff that didn't work for my situation. These cables didn't initially work, either, until I reversed the cables plugged into a two-way splitter. Now, everything works great.
