Sometimes I see reviews that say "low quality", then argue that the cable isn't carbon fiber reinforced with gold plated connectors, so it must be low quality. That's not the kind of "low quality" I mean. What I mean is that the cable fell apart after a month.
As a few other reviewers have said, the cable is fine _as long as you don't touch it_.
I use the cable 'on the go', I plug it in only when I need it. After a month of light to moderate usage, the plastic coating has separated from one of the connectors. That's probably a grand total of 20 connections/disconnections from the computer. Obviously, it's pretty low quality, regardless of your definition, regardless of how you're using it.
(I uploaded a picture of the broken cable so that you can see the issue)
If the cable's just going to be sitting in a fixed location and never touched, and IF there's nothing in a similar price range that will suite your needs, this might be adequate.
For any other usage, get something else.
