Received used item, bent out of shape
on June 9, 2014
The cord displayed in all five pictures on this page are new, and packaged as they come from apple (cord wrapped along an oval, and a clear plastic loop tightly slipped on the roll.) However, what we received was a used cord, which was tied together with a white twist-tie. There are several dents along the entire length of the cord, and dark stains in places too.
Worst of all, the point where the cord attaches to the plug is bent out of shape. You can see it in the pictures I have attached. This is concerning because this is the very spot that our previous cord bent at, and stopped working. This is a problem that all old and used plugs have in common that causes the wires entering the plug to become loose and finally break.
On a side note, the item was terribly packaged (see pictures). I expected better packaging than stuffing the mangled mess into a used kitchen ziplock bag, and a manila envelope (which is exactly how I received it).
