hard to discern the reviews because they're for multiple cables

I've been looking at this cable and other 10gbps cables for a while if you're in a bind I think this is a decent enough cable.

otherwise wait for thunderbolt 3 20gbps cables to go on sale, they are around $15-20 and are compatible with USB-C 5-10gbps

I actually bought this Thunderbolt 3 20 Gb/s cable a few days ago on a Lightning Deal for $15.99 and no tax. I haven't tried it out yet though so I can't comment on the quality.

Looks like they sold out. There's still a 1m one for $8 and a 6ft one for $10.

for top tier quality 3rd party cables, you cant go wrong with anker...6 feet usb c - usb c was on sale for 17 recently, they have power delivery which charges super fast, amazing build quality, and they have life time warranty to back it up.

dont know much about their other departments, but they got battery charging down to a science, be it cables, wall adaptors, car adaptors, or power banks, all top of the line quality, and not that expensive either, i personally own 2 banks, 1 wall adaptor, 3 car adaptor, 12 cables, bought them over the last 7 years or so, not a single item has ever failed or malfunctioned on me

I just bought a Fasgear 6ft USB Type C to USB Type C cable for about $20 bucks off of Amazon (paid a bit more because I wanted a red cable). The first cable I received didn't work to well with my triple monitor dock, but after reaching out to Fasgear Customer Support, they sent me a replacement cable the next day. I didn't have to return the defective one either so I am using that as charging cable now.

If the cable doesn't work, try contacting their customer service, but I think it would be better to spend a bit more and ensure you get a quality cable that works.

Actually have used this cable for a decent few months, can confirm amperage and data throughput are accurate, however despite the cable feeling quite touch durability at the most common failure point didn’t match - this will of course vary by use case

Thanks for sharing. For a couple of dollars more you get a way better cable.

Fasgear customer support might be good, but, from your experience I sense that their QA is dismal. I wouldn't expect them to use some statistical process control as part of their QA workflow, but, if they are a small volume provider, either they or their provider should be testing individual cables one-by-one. I would have been pretty annoyed if the cable was DOA on arrival. I expect that when a product is shipped to me that it's functional.
