Customer Reviews

I would recommend this produce as a great value and at product.

There's not too much to say other than it works as advertised and that I have had it a few months and it is still working so don't be scared to buy this cheaper cable.

Doesn't have the grooves to "pop" into devices for a snug fit and may come out easily if jostled.

While this cable will indeed provide a path for photons to move as with any other optical cable, the connectors are very poorly made. I'm guessing that they don't meet the mechanical specs for toslink, as they don't hold themselves in the jacks as they are supposed to. I literally had to use tape on one of the connectors to keep it from falling out of the port under no more pressure than its own weight. Correctly designed toslink cables stay in the same jack just fine.

Conclusion: Don't spend $100 on an optical cable (since they all perform exactly the same as far as data is concerned,) but do get one with good connectors (which can be had at reasonable prices, but apparently not this low.) Of course, for any form of digital data, whether electronic (HDMI, DVI, etc.) or optical (toslink, fibrechannel, etc.,) there is no difference in signal quality as long as the data actually gets to the other end, so a medium-cheap cable will perform *exactly* the same as an expensive "high-end" cable, unless you are in an environment with an incredibly high amount of electromagnetic noise (at which point you shouldn't have your TV or receiver [or yourself] there anyway.)

12 FT Digital Audio Optical TOSLink Cable Optic 12ft

I recently purchased these cables and I am glad to say they are fantastic. I was hesitant initially due to some reviews saying that the cable didn't fit properly. When I received the cables I realized that those who are inserting the cables, claiming they don't fit, are putting the cables in upside down. So if you have difficulty initially, just turn it so that the rounded portion of the male plug faces down, (which the receptacles have all the rounded portions on the bottom of all of my equipment) and then it should just snap right in! So with that, I highly recommend this cable and you can't beat the price!

Good cheap cable. Only caveat is that it does not plug into devices securely. Doesn't have the grooves to "pop" into devices for a snug fit and may come out easily if jostled.

12 FT Digital Audio Optical TOSLink Cable Optic 12ft
I bought this cable based on the reviews and Amazon's reputation. I received the cables in record time, however, neither of the two cables I purchased fit properly. The fiber tip is approximately 1/16" too long to fit properly in any of my audio equipment. I nearly damaged my audio unit's digital jack trying to get it to "snap" in like all my others do. It may work fine, but without being able to click the connector in it certainly will not stay put.

I've been using this in my home theater for months now and it works perfectly fine. Stay away from overpriced brand-name cables in chain stores!

Don't go and spend $20+ looking for a "High Quality" optical cable at a retail store. A cheaper cable such as this will do the exact same job for less than $5.

This specific cable is very well made and works perfectly for my audio setup. I definitely recommend this product.

Hope I helped,

- Justin

You can easily spend 6-8 times as much for a 12' TOSLINK cable, but there is no good reason to do so. This cable works well and the signal is digital, so there is no improved performance to be had from the name brand cables.

I got two of these, and they both work great. The cable is nice and flexible, but not flimsy. Fit is snug in my devices - I'm not sure why some people are having issues. Maybe there are differences in port sizes, or maybe people aren't taking off the cap or trying to put them in upside down lol - who knows.
