Saved me a great deal of money buying this vs. Monster.
Geekdomo
With the my new RCA LCD TV which has Optical output I connected it to my Sony amp which is hooked to 5 bose speakers producing an awsome surround sound.
Paul D. Wilson
What I got was a very thin cable, no tethers for the caps, and the connectors are loose and go in crooked.

As stated in other reviews, bits are bits. If they get from one system component to another, you're doing just as well with a $5 cable as a $60 one. Monster and other companies are ripping consumers off with gobbledeygook buzzwords designed to obscure the mind and open the pocketbook.

I have installed this cable in my system, and its performance delivering 5.1 channel audio and DTS from my PS3 to my receiver is flawless. It performs identically to the other more expensive optical cable I have.

As of my last check of this product page, $1.31 as a list price and $2.98 for shipping makes for a total of $4.29. This is an outrageously good deal, beating even many other discount outlets. If you have a receiver that uses optical digital for audio input (as opposed to HDMI, which most newer receivers utilize), you simply can't go wrong. A definite must-buy at this price.

I recieved one of these toslink optical cables so I could connect my xbox advanced A/V adapter to my digital suround sound receiver. It worked just fine. In my opinion it doesn't make sense to get esoteric about optical cables for home Audio/Video applications. Save yourself the money.

Either a cable is going to carry the bits from one end to the other, or it isn't. Optical doesn't need fancy stuff like gold plated contacts (yes, there are vendors who make optical cables with gold-plated contacts!). This inexpensive cable works great, and is going to sound every bit as good as a TOSLINK cable that costs 10x as much.

OK, First of all I have to say that even though many people say that it does the job (which it does) it is extremely unacceptable to put a picture of a product and to sell another. That being said, I agree that the product did the job, but I had to do some work on one of the sides of the cable because it does not have the correct adapter.

Imagine that you get your product, you connect to your Playstation 3 or DVD Player or whatever. You see that it fits, it works, but then you see the other side of the cable and it is different, when you try to connect that to your home theater you realize it will never "click" so you need to put some silly putty or invisible tape to keep the cable in its place!! do you think that is acceptable? I think it is definitely not!

I know the product is cheap and I shouldn't expect a lot from it, but the least I expect is that the product I see in the picture is the same product I get by mail.

Update 7-9-2010

I thought this was significant enough to justify adding an update at the very top of the review. In my Update of 7-3-2010 I said I had decided to order another Optical Cable from Eforcity just to see what they were sending and see how it compared with the cable I got from SF Planet. That cable came in this morning and I can now see how the varying reviews can be explained, at least in part. The cable from Eforcity appeared identical to the cable reviewed in the video; it was much larger and had the caps for the ends of the cable on a small plastic strap attached to the cable for use when the cable wasn't plugged in. It is also much larger in diameter with larger plug assemblies.

I decided to try and make a comparison test of the two cables and decided to use a sound level meter to see if the smaller diameter cable from SF Planet caused any signal attenuation. To do this I selected a test CD which had a test tone recorded at 1,000 cps at - 0 decibels. I played the signal over my stereo system and adjusted the volume so that the sound level meter, a Radio Shack Model 33-2050, was showing a sound level of 80 decibels.

I left everything exactly the same except I switched over to the Eforcity cable and played the tone again; the meter showed exactly the same sound level, 80 decibels. It would appear there is no attenuation when using the SF Planet cable. I'll admit the cable from Eforcity looks a great deal more impressive, and more like what I expected from the beginning but I cannot detect any audible difference.

They both locked in and made good connections to the equipment, so there's no practical difference there. I will admit that I'm going to leave the Eforcity cable installed and keep the SF Planet cable as a reserve.

This was a very cheap optical cable. I have purchase other inexpensive optical cables before and they work fine. This one is just cheap. The connectors are just a bit to small, so instead of snapping into the receptacle they just fall out. I was able to wrap the end with some plumbers thread tape to get it to stay put. This cable will be replaced as soon as possible.

I used this cable to connect my DVD player to the receiver and what a difference in sound quality. I agree with other reviewers, thought this cable is non-brand name, there is no difference in quality of the sound.
