Surprising plastic connector body!
on April 11, 2013
This is my 4th set of Monster RCA Cables, but the set comes with plastic connector bodies. The so-called "Striking Black Chrome Finish" is nothing but a coating over plastic. It looks striking, but feels like plastic. Another reviewer indicated that Monster Cable said these were to be metal shell connectors, but mine were plastic like his. He returned his cables, but I opted to keep my cables. The plastic seemed pretty tough and the cables were what I expected from Monster Cable. So while I was disappointed with the plastic connector bodies, the cables perform well. I do not know if Amazon gets a less expensive version of the MC 400I-1M cables to keep the cost down, or if the other reviewer go incorrect information from Monster Cable. I can not believe that Amazon is selling fake Monster Cables. Everything except the plastic shell connectors is high quality as you would expect from Monster Cable.
