You will have curly-Q-ing and tornado twisting, whereas the original cable laid over itself, on one plane, due to its structure. The old cable would come untangled almost by itself, while the twists in the new cable need more attention.
I've modified my cable by wrapping it and two lengths of clothes-line rope with electrical tape, giving it the shape of the original cable, for all but the last 5 feet. This makes it lay the way the old cable did.
In my opinion, the 3-in-1 is an improvement over the ribbon, but I wouldn't call it a game changer by any means. It's definitely less noticeable, and while spec sheets may say different, it just feels lighter and more maneuverable. The build quality is also top notch, which is a relief after reading reports on some of the quality issues of the Vive headset + peripherals. Is it worth $40? It depends on you and your situation. Do you want the best VR experience and don't mind spending more? Go for it, ti's a decent stop-gap in comfort until we get true wireless headsets/adapters.
Note: If you've recently purchased a Vive, chances are your headset came with this 3-in-1 cable so don't waste your money.
