Top customer reviews
With that said, I've always paid the price of shopping cheap. I've probably purchased over 30 cheap cords over the years. All of them have failed; literally all of them have fallen apart (cords pull out from connectors, etc). Worst of all? All of them had syncing issues - either I couldn't transfer music to/from my devices without errors, or updates/backups would fail. I always thought syncing issues were my computers fault; until I learned only the official Apple cords will sync correctly without errors. So recently I decided to end the frustration and buy a REAL apple sync cord ($20 once is cheaper then $2 over and over, and you can't put a price on eliminating all the frustration that comes with syncing errors, broken cords, etc).
AND THEN to my utter joy (and hesitation) I found this cord. I didn't want to believe the reviews or the claims, as every non-Apple cord I've purchased in the past has been a complete failure (despite the claims of the sellers).
With Amazon's return policy backing me up, I thought why not. I'll try it. And I'll return it if it doesn't live up to it's published claims on the Amazon website.
And here I am today inspired to write this review to tell you that in fact, I just backed up, and updated 2 iPod Touchs (2nd gen), and 2 iPhones (3gs) WITHOUT A SINGLE PROBLEM (both iPhones transferred over 1,200 photos/videos and 8+gb of apps). No data errors, no transfer errors, no problems whatsoever. FYI - I did the backup/transfers on a old Windows XP Dell Laptop, and a home built tower pc with Windows 7.
As a bonus, this cord is extra long. Which is perfect for my use!
-The cord and connectors are a little lower quality. Time will tell if these hold up, if they don't, I'll drop my stars and let my fellow shoppers (and Amazon) know. (Lower quality as in the cord material is the stiff, shiny, harder plastic vs the softer Apple rubber cords. The connector (cord ends) seem to be shiny thin/brittle plastic.)
That's it for now! Hopefully this cord will last. I recommend it for now because of the great price, the longer length, and most of all the charging and full data transfer without any errors!
UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 2012
I wrote my original review on this product in August 2011. I've now owned this product for a total of 1 year, 1 month.
My cord has lasted 13 months. 13 months of what I consider maximum abuse. Imagine twice a day, 2 little kids pulling the iPhone back and forth, front seat to back seat, over and over and over and over. Its been crushed on the floor, jammed in the seats, slammed in the doors, chewed on by a puppy; and it finally broke. Where did it break? Where the cord connects to the head of the connecter that plugs into the bottom of your iPhone/iPod/iPad. Its been used every single day to charge either an iPhone(3GS+4S), iPad(v2), or iPod Touch (v2). It's probably the single most used item I use every day, next to my iPhone.
I'm a very pleased, very impressed, and very satisfied customer... and I'm even happier that it's now half the price as when I bought it in the first place.
Thanks RND, whoever you are. We appreciate quality products at fair prices. Please keep it up and never give up on quality.
I'm ordering 2 now...

My wife was complaining that the charge cord for her iPad2 was too short so, as usual, I checked Amazon to see what was out there and since I wanted a longer cord for my iPhone I thought I'd get one for me, too. So, I ordered 2 long (6 ft.) cords and got them from different suppliers to see what worked better. I ordered the cords from RND ($10.99) and from Gator ($3.79).
These cords are virtually identical and the build quality on both appeared very good. They both connected solidly to the iPad2 and iPhone 3GS and syncing worked everytime. (One other cord I had purchased some time back from a different vendor did not always prompt a sync with iTunes when plugged in.)
The only visible differences:
>>The cable on the cheaper (Gator) cord was just a bit thinner and more flexible, which actually was a bit favorable in my view. I cannot speak to long-term,travel-type, use in-and-out of a briefcase, etc. as we use them for overnight charging and powering devices in use when the battery may be running low.
>>The cheaper (Gator) cord is about 8 inches longer than the RND.
Bottom line: Both of these cords work fine for me so I recommend you get the cheaper one. If long-term use shows a problem, I'll update this review.
NOTE: Review updated after 6 months of heavy use. Initially I had preferred the feel of the other cable, but the durability of this cable has changed my mind.
