    This cable is very disappointing—which is saying a lot considering that I only use it for the bare minimum (charging). No data transferring, no video, etc.

    It DOES seem durable (though I don't know how long it'll last, exactly) but it comes at the price of being very thick, so it gets tangled fairly easily. Also, after moving your MBP around, you'll also notice that the cable starts to become "twisted."

    I have a late 2016 macbook pro with 2-usbC ports or the non-touch bar mac book pro. I will have to say that the charger is perfect, it's not clunky and it detaches from the charger box. This saves me space and I can move the "charger-box" more towards the inside of my bag to protect it from the occasional knocks as I'm hurrying through the day.
    I do miss the magsafe but in a professional environment there was truly no need for it as these machines are ultra portable. I've gone through the process of adding Windows 10 to my Pro using Bootcamp and it monitors charging speeds and it takes about 30-40 minutes for the Macbook to become fully charged from a low as 25% and it last me all day.

    I think there is much to be said about the Increased efficacy and speed of charging and you can put the charger in any way and in any port on the machine. unlike the Mag-safe that had only like one way of charging and the ridiculous wearing out of the ports. The only thing I'm worried about with these chargers is that they look a bit flimsy like the Iphone lightening chargers. However the Box-parts should last a lot longer than the Magsafe as they don't have to do much but provide power.

    Nope. This cable is terrible. It was connected to my macbook pro when I tripped on the cable. Of course my laptop landed sideways, bending the connector while inside my computer, rendering it useless and broken. Why did you get rid of the Magsafe, Apple? Why?? Please come up with a better option.

    Not happy with the loss of Magsafe

    Magsafe was a part of what made Apple computers feel so premium. Quick on/off, reversible, and doesn't take your computer with it if you trip over it.

    Now you need a bulky magnetic USB-C aftermarket dongle to recreate the functionality of what was one of my favorite MacBook features.

    Not your typical USB-C cable

    Transfers data slowly and doesn't support video.

    Quality of cables not up to typical Apple quality

    I can't believe how much Apple manufacturing quality has gone down over the past few years. The USB-C to USB-A adapter sits completely flush with the deck of the MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016) while this one sticks up a few mils. It catches on your hand when using the keyboard. It sounds like a very small issue, but I'm used to Apple products having very high-end fitment. For $20 for something that used to be included with the charger, and them charging extra again for the AC cable which is now an accessory, I expect it to be on par with their other USB-C ends. Probably made by a different supplier, or it's thicker because it can handle higher power delivery rates.

    Data Transfer speed disappointment

    Crazy that this cable that comes with my new MacBook Pro 13" is very poor for transfer speeds and that if I want a higher speed transfer I have to buy yet another cable. Apple, you really should put your best foot forward and make this a Thunderbolt 3 cable!

    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.

    Solid Cable

    This cable is solid. They redid the jacket of the cable so I suspect we will see a lot less pealing and fraying like old mag safe. The cable supports USB device and 100 Watt USB-C PD. This is huge for a 20 dollar cable. This cable is one of the few things apple priced lower than the value it delivers. The cable is also already the max length supported by USB-C PD.

    Great Cable

    Got one of these cables with my 2016 MacBook Pro (13" Non-Touch Bar). The build quality is fantastic (much thicker and more durable than the Magsafe Cable). While a lot of people are upset about the loss of Magsafe, I will say it's very nice to be able to replace only the cable and not the power adapter (Magsafe required both). I do wish they offered longer cables (3, 4 meters) as Magsafe did have the extension cable.

    Overall great cable and a huge leap over Magsafe and the Lightning cables in terms of durability and build quality.

    No Rapid Charging Supported

    So right before I was on my way to the mall I had realized that my USB Type-C cable had broke. So, once I arrived to the mall I went and checked out Apple's USB Type-C cables and had noticed that they were very cheap for the length. Long story short, I got home and plugged in the cable to phone and it wasn't charging rapidly. I will say, however, that the cable is very high quality and the length is amazing (maybe because it's for the Mac's) but I must give it 2 stars for not charging my phone rapidly. You would think that a cable this thick, which is made to charge a 15 inch Macbook Pro with an 87 watt brick, would support rapid charging.
