    Not so great, but there is no other choice

    Unfortunately, as GREAT as most of the Apple products this one does not meet their usual standard. The wire cord VERY quickly starts pulling away from the plug-in part. I have had to replace mine 3 times already in not that long a time period. I will say though, that I have also tried "generic" cords and they are no better and often will not even work.

    Not For Heavy Duty Use

    This iPhone 4S charger cord is the only one offered for sale at Best Buy when I purchased it. It is not for everyday use and you need to purchase a back up since it is cheaply made and does not hold up to daily use. I am unable to find a heavy duty charger cord for an iPhone 4S and these require replacing about every 4 - 6 months.

    These are most definitely overpriced but when buying online isn’t an option this works pretty well (better than expected). Not only is this charger longer than expected but it seems pretty durable, maybe more durable than the Apple one?

    Cable works MOST of the time

    Bought this cable for my iPhone, it is not an Apple cable but I was assured that it would work, and it does about 99% of the time. The other times it results in a "Charging not authorized with this device" message. I can typically unplug it and plug it back in to correct this, but it is a mild hassle.

    It was over priced and he cord was extremely short. I would have done better at the dollar store but I had a gift card so I kept it only for that reason. I did not see the difference because for twenty bucks. It should have been from Apple.

    Good Charging Cable in Emergency

    Bought this Insignia cable for an older iPad. I only bought this brand because the store was out of the Apple brand. It works. Its a little tight fitting into the connection, so you have to watch and make sure you plug it straight in so you don't bend any pins.

    Too expensive

    It worked for the older model iPad I bought for my grandmother, but it was too expensive. I was in a pinch as the iPad was a gift. Otherwise, find the 30 pin cord somewhere else.

    While it serves it's purpose, this is the second cable I have had to purchase since buying my iPad 2 years ago. I feel that the quality of this cable could be better, but you can't expect much better with the price, unless you're willing to pay 4x as much for the Apple equivalent.

    When your 92 year old mother needs a recharge cable NOW because her ancient iPhone is dead, you go to Best Buy and pay a ridiculous price for a house brand 30 pin cable. You know, just like the one Amazon or Monoprice sell for a fourth of the price.

    This is a perfectly normal charge/data cable that I bought to replace a cable that failed. Over a month later it is still working without problem. I thought the price wasn't particularly competitive but then again this was the only compatible cable for my iPad in the store.

    Works, but not a recognized accessory

    This cord charges my iPad, but it is not an apple recognized accessory. The iPad does not always register that the cord is plugged in and sometimes I get error messages about the cord. It was affordable, but I would have paid a couple of extra bucks to avoid these small issues.

    This was purchased for my older iPad 2 after the original cord frayed. I am used to the lighting cords for my iPhone so in comparison to those, this cord charges at a snail's pace. Fortunately, I don't use the iPad often so it hasn't bothered me much.

    I purchased this item because the charger for my wife's S6 was acting up a bit. After a couple of weeks my wife tells me that the charger flickers when it comes to charging, it goes on and off, therefore this item does not convince me completely.

    I'm not sure why we bought this...we don't have any devices that uses this type of cable...but I'm sure it worked just fine...I think? But props to best buy for still carrying cables for antiquated tech.

    It works good and It looks just like an apple product but due to lack of manufacturers of this kind of accessories (other than Chinese cheap ones), I think it’s overpriced.

    We bought this item in the Apple section of the store,we thought it was an apple branded accessory until we looked at it more closely. We returned it and picked up a similar item for much less

    Replacement for OEM cable

    I was disappointed in the OEM cable which failed after 5 years of light use. The insulation split exposing the internal wires. We shall see how the new one holds up.

    The Insignia™ - Apple MFi Certified 4' 30-Pin Charge-and-Sync Cable - White does not have a history of long term use - after a few months, it starts to fail close to the ends.
