Unnecessarily bulky; you should consider others – Premium TOSLINK Digital Audio Optical Cable (3M-Length) Reviews

posted by MattInSoCal on 12/22/2009 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- Cable jacket is thick. This adds some protection.
- It conducts light.
Cons:
- Cable jacket is thick. This adds some weight and makes it harder to route.
- The fake gold-plated ring at the end is an annoying cosmetic addition. Mine slid out of place when trying to seat the cable.
- The cables are pretty hard to seat. I had to shove them into the devices pretty hard to get them to mate and then they did not always click solidly.
Other:
Compared to retail prices, this cable is awesomely cheap. I bought three and installed two, preferring to keep my one thinner cable as it is easier to route.
Bottomline:
You should consider other cables ahead of this one. The fake gold sleeve is annoying.
