Is this genuine Monoprice? Really bad cable ends, missed QC
on July 18, 2016
I have had nothing but great experience with Monoprice gear and cables, mostly buying direct from their site. Now I needed a coax for my TV somewhat urgently – my hide-all-the-cables project couldn't stall any longer – so I ordered via Prime.
The cable that arrived looked fine at first, quite thick, as a quad shielded coax should be. But the copper inner connector finishing is really bad: the ends arrived off-center, not cut straight, and slightly bent.
At first I couldn't even get them to mate with my TV antenna input. After trying to center them, I could finally screw the end in. But I'm wondering how good the connection is, and what it might do to my equipment?
Absolutely not recommended. I'll see what the return policy is, I can't really be without a cable so I hope they do what they do in direct sales: just send a new one out.
