      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.

      Not your typical USB-C cable

      Transfers data slowly and doesn't support video.

      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 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.

      cable odor overpowering

      So Very disappointed with this cable. Tried to buy a new MacBook Pro, but the cable smell was so bad, we eventually had to return the computer. Tried airing i So Very disappointed with this cable. Tried to buy a new MacBook Pro, but the cable smell was so bad, we eventually had to return the computer. Tried airing it out in the basement, then the garage with no success. Causes headaches and nausea, and the odor seems to spread to everything the cable comes in contact with. We returned the cable to Apple store for a new one, but sadly had the same result. The staff in the store, including the manager, reportedly had never heard of the issue, but did admit the cable smells of mold when they opened a third one. Apparently all the cables are made of the same materials. This causes me to question why I would ever buy another product from Apple. We are long term users. I hope this issue will be corrected soon.

      Smells!

      I ordered two of these cables for my new iPad Pro, since the cable that comes in the box of this $1500 device is criminally short. Well, these cables work fine I ordered two of these cables for my new iPad Pro, since the cable that comes in the box of this $1500 device is criminally short. Well, these cables work fine and are a bit thicker than that one, but wow do they STINK. Both of these cables smell STRONGLY of mold/mildew. I don't mean to say that they have a light, bad smell. The stench of these cables is overpowering. I honestly can't believe Apple would sell something like this.

      everyone is right this cable and standard is actually a disappointment

      You can basically only use this cable to charge, and you HAVE to use the apple cable to charge at full speed. aftermarket cables in my experience take twice as You can basically only use this cable to charge, and you HAVE to use the apple cable to charge at full speed. aftermarket cables in my experience take twice as long to charge. So the "wireless future" that apple has described is actually double the cables you carry around with you all th time. Apple is expecting the aftermarket to plug all the gaps between accessories and macbooks, but its not graceful and its not carefully enough thought through. If I pull this cable our of my macbook 1st gen touchbar laptop even 1mm, I loos connection. it looks like its connected but its not. Also, my drives eject constantly. Thats a macbook problem more than a cable problem, but the two sides were ill conceived together. Lot of potential for USB-c, but its not helping me in my day to day life as a person who makes a lot of video and photo. Its just a lot of dongles and adapters and a heaping bag of cables. I now carry at least double the cables I used to.
