Apparently they are offering refunds in exchange for an "honest" review. If the first 4 star review is to be believed.

The first rule of Amazon reviews is to never trust Amazon reviews.
Fake, inflated, paid, and other forms of scammy news and reviews run rampant. A world drenched in online deceit, spiraling into oblivion.

Score is inflated, but this is in the 4.x / 5.0 territory. Good enough.

Not sure about the 90 degree kink, I realize it's suppose to be easier to connect. Not convinced.

Otherwise, a decent purchase.

I have these, bought as I was refunded for am honest review. They actually told us to review for 3 days minimum and provide a legitimate review. So far no issues, it's been 3 or so weeks.

To be 'paid' for a review is still in dodge land IMO. You're going to be writing it knowing they are now free which will increase your happiness.
Usually with cables like these, they only last a short while before exhibiting issues, so your instant out of the box review does not reflect longevity. Most folks don't update reviews either.

Hmm. That said, I do have quite a few of their cables. They are honestly pretty good. I have not been paid in any way for a review.

LOL @ things like "Superconductivity" and the "dual chips" bit. Not sure if these would actually have an ICs for any reason but you certainly don't need any IC in the cable for QC compatibility. This isn't Crapple...ICs for charging exist in power supplies ("chargers") and devices, not cables. (A cable with an A end and a C end should have a pullup resistor but that's not the same thing and these are C-C cables anyway.) Actually the C-C ones advertise only one "E-marker chip" whatever the heck that is so the second "chip" in the A-C cables are probably just the resistor.

They're also USB 2.0 cables, so all that fluff they got in there is just that--fluff. Personally I don't buy cables with a C end that aren't 3.0 cables, but that's just me.

cute, but untrue, most are probably useless but that's the same with all things. People can't communicate, they project their own assumptions, they use broken logic based on other false assumptions and group think nonsense.

but if you look through the reviews, you can very often find a sledge-hammer class review containing secrets and hard real world facts that can elevate your level of discernment in that product class.

Sure, but the majority just look at the score, too trusting of them.

Not doubting anything you're saying lol only giving my initial impression, and they seem fine. Amazon is my go-to for everything, if this craps out on me in a few months, I will update my review. I've already gotten my refund, so I don't have any incentive to lie.

Thanks OP. I've bought their cables before. Very high quality and have never failed.

Gonna pick these up. They'll be perfect for the kids' laptops with that right angle.
