    Wore out very quickly

    I have always purchased third party cables. Apple charges $15 for their cable which I don't think is built as well as many third party cables. I've had amazing luck with Anker and Amazon Basics, I have lightning cables from both brands that have lasted me the entire time I've had an iPhone (3+ years!). I am pretty careful with my cables not to bend or kink them, which is maybe part of it, but the Anker and Amazon Basics cables feel like they're good quality. This particular insignia cable feels like lower quality. The cable is obviously a higher guage (thinner wire) than the other two brands I mentioned, and the cable only lasted me 2 weeks before there was a short causing intermittent charging! Luckily, since it's Best Buy's house brand, they will exchange the cable for you in store within a year (you can see on the back of the box it says 1 year warranty - all you have to do is go into a best buy and they will pull up your receipt and exchange it for you on the spot!). That's the one redeeming factor, but I would still much rather have a higher quality cable.

    What sold me on this purchase was that I was going to be receiving a whole foot on cable length, as opposed to the standard lightning cable sold by apple. It was amazing making lounging and using the phone while it charged great and more comfortable(everyone that uses the phone on the charger knows what I'm talking about.) This feeling was great for the cheaper price of other cables, what a steal right? Unfortunately not. If you do not purchase the black tie protection for an extra $5 you will begin to experience cable failure within a few weeks. I purchased a second to give it another chance. Again... Failure. The cord also begins to fray similarly to apple Lightning cords by the Lightning adapter side. Not worth the 14.99 unless you purchase black tie to keep replacing them every few weeks.

    Canon Pixma all in one printer has poor features

    I was setting up my new Canon Pixma TR-8520 “All in one printer” and the first disappointing feature is a bright light, like strobe light that will blind you if you look at it. It signifies the printer is on. The paper Intake drawer has a cheap, flimsy plastic flap that just sits on top of the paper intake drawer and is unsecured. The printer was on sale for $99 and the regular price was $199. I am dismayed that the printer is such a poorly constructed unit.

    Fairly Good Replacement Cable

    Wish I would have spent more and gotten a better cable. This one works... don't get me wrong, but I found that if it is bent in the slightest, it may not charge. One time I plugged it in my car and put the phone on the driver side seat and it ended up bending a little, so it never charged.... must be a weak spot in the cable. Works great so long as the cable is straight coming out of the phone. I should have bought a higher quality cable (like Apples) because they charge no matter if the cable is bent or not. My 2 cents is spend the extra money for a slightly higher quality cable.

    And on day 90...it automatically self destroyed without a warning or obvious cause. Two stars cuz it did it’s job while it lasted and it didn’t frayed. It’s made of thick material and it looked durable with plenty of life potential. Nope. It just quit. it’s good if you just need something to get you by or use as your spare in your overnight bag but don’t count on this as your everyday charger.

    Charger didn't even last 6 weeks.. Worked fine for about 5 weeks and then I needed to "twist" the charger into just the right position and I'd get lucky. Then it all together stopped working. Pretty annoying considering I didn't even get 2 months out of it. Also have to mention, the charger wasn't being yanked out of the phone when I was done using it or anything.

    Not the best replacement cable

    My kids each had problem with their original Apple cables after a while, so we got them each this replacement cable. I'll say they loved it for about a week each. Then they said it would only charge if you didn't touch the phone while it was plugged in (meaning the connection would be lost). They aren't happy and neither are we that we now need new ones again after only a month. I wouldn't recommend this cable.

    I had to replace my old iPhone 5 charger cable which was also a insignia brand charger because it had broken. I needed something as soon as possible and this was the cheapest one I could get at best buy. I hope it lasts longer then the last one but these cords tend to break easily at the tip that goes into the phone. Definitely over priced I feel for a cord that doesn't even come with an outlet box.

    Doesn’t Last Long

    This is the 3rd or 4th one over the years that I have purchased because of the price. They only seem to last a year at most before they stop charging. This one was the worst one yet though because it came out of the box brand new with a kink in the chord by where it plugs into the phone so I don’t see it lasting to much longer before it stops charging.

    Bought in Oct 2016 and lasted litttle over a year. This cable however wasn’t my primary charging cable it was 1 of 3 that I have and if you take that into consideration, then it really only lasted a third of a years normal use . The cable gradually started to lose connection on the phone side . I would not buy insignia again.

    The smaller part of the charger is so fragile that it managed to stop working just by leaving it on the ground. When I felt that part of the charger just to see why my phone wasn't charging, I managed to snap it off without even trying. It's a godawful charger that's not worth spending your money on or getting it for free if someone offers it to you.

    I was told that this charger would last me at least 2 years which I found out to be a lie within one month. The charger stopped working sooner than I thought. It's sturdy but it didn't last long. It was a waste of $14.99. I should've just went to the Apple Store and spent the extra $5 for an Apple charger. I'm very disappointed with this charger.

    It worked great for two months and it is now touch in go. I have to place my phone in weird positions to get it to charge and my phone gives me an error message saying it's not supported. It's so irritating! I'm getting ready to dump this and going back to apple brand cords. Save yourself the time and money, and just buy the apple brand.

    This is my 2nd time purchasing this product and it was recommended from an employee but I found it to be less than satisfactory. It didn't last no time and stopped working. I thought I would give it a second chance, same thing. I am NOT rough by any means on my chargers. For the price I paid, these should last much longer.

    This was an ok purchase was recomended by the sales rep. as a afforable alternative from the apple brand. True it was but one only lasted a month or two and just stopped working. Returned both and repurchased to make sure not a fluke, which it did. Very hit or miss, not sure why purchased a expensive apple brand and has done the job.

    I was very disappointed in this cord. It didnt last a month before it started not comnecting. Frankly I think they should replace it but when I tried because we were out of town and didnt have the box they would not do it. I expect when I pay what I did fr this cord that it should last longer than the cheap 5.00 ones

    Stop working after 6 months

    We bought this to replace an iPhone charger. It stops working after 6 months - we think is due to the loose interior connector. You have to leave the phone still and untouched. If you move it it will lose connection and stop charging completely. Not reliable as an charger.

    I used this for my iPhone and iPad and it charged great for a few months then I started getting error messages and it stopped charging either of them. I hate to pay the extra for official apple products but better to go with them first instead of going through them in a short time period

    Fine for iPhones but with the big iPad it's hit or miss. The end with the lightening part developed black/dark lines. This happened with all 3 that I bought after using with a big iPad. But for the price it's a decent iPhone charger.

    Apple iPhone cords are not very durable, but this cord is not much different. I use this cord next to my bed, so it stays in one spot and I never move it. I have found that at certain points in time it causes my phone to spontaneously function even though I'm not using it.
