      Underwhelming

      I really want to love USB-C -- it's such a versatile connector, truly a technical marvel -- but it's shameful that this cable only supports USB 2.0 data speeds I really want to love USB-C -- it's such a versatile connector, truly a technical marvel -- but it's shameful that this cable only supports USB 2.0 data speeds and that it's not included with the purchase of a USB-C charger.

      Fast charges, breaks easily

      I have had my new MacBook Pro for less than two months and have had to replace this cable twice already! The cord bends and snaps so easily. Both times I'm unsu I have had my new MacBook Pro for less than two months and have had to replace this cable twice already! The cord bends and snaps so easily.

      Not your typical USB-C cable

      Transfers data slowly and doesn't support video.

      Could not connect two modern MBPs in Target Disk Mode with this cable

      Apple's "It just works" mentality died a long time ago. This cable is a piece of junk.

      Should not be marketed for data transfer

      The item name is "charge cable" but the description says its good for data transfer.

While it technically does transfer data, it does so at a top speed of only about 30 MB/sec. It actually makes my external SSD slower than a spinning disk. The external SSD should be about 500 MB/sec (and is that speed with a different cable)!

      Cable Has BAD ODOR

      I recently purchased MacBook Pro. Upon opening the box I smelled a foul odor. Isolated this to the USB-C cable. I thought maybe after using for a week or two I recently purchased MacBook Pro. Upon opening the box I smelled a foul odor. Isolated this to the USB-C cable. I thought maybe after using for a week or two, cleaning it and airing it out, the smell would go away. After researching this on the internet, I was surprised to find many have had this issue. I could not find anything from Apple as to what they are doing about it. I did call Apple support and they are sending me a replacement. The two support reps I spoke to were completely unaware of this problem.
