      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.

      Bad

      I only use this cable for charging my MacBook and nothing else. Though, after just a few months of using it, it breaks.

I have done absolutely nothing with it and the insides are all messed up. This is a cheaply made cable.

      Cable does not fully support USB-C

      This is exclusively a charge cable and does not support USB-C monitors or USB-C data transfer levels. I mistakenly assumed that the reason they sold the cable a This is exclusively a charge cable and does not support USB-C monitors or USB-C data transfer levels. I mistakenly assumed that the reason they sold the cable and the power brick separately was that one could use the cable to plug into USB-C monitors for both video and charging simultaneously (or plug your MacBook Pro into other USB-C devices). Nope! You have to get a real USB-C cable from another vendor to do that. More cables, more dongles: the Apple way.

      Wish it had a charge indicator LED

      First of all, I like USB-C and I believe it will be worth it in the long run, just like the transition to USB was a little annoying at first but worked out for First of all, I like USB-C and I believe it will be worth it in the long run, just like the transition to USB was a little annoying at first but worked out for the better. But unfortunately, the new change didn't just get rid of MagSafe, it also got rid of the charging LED. The new MacBooks don't have any LEDs on them, either, which means if you want to make sure your laptop is charging after plugging it in, it HAS to be open. I'm all for minimalism, but Apple is pushing it a little too far these days.
