To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I purchased this cable to take advantage of a USB-C port to access an external M.2 SSD drive. While the cable works, it is quite slow, with a write speed of 18 MB/s and read speed of 38MB/s. After switching to the original USB 3.1 cable, the read speed was >360MB/s (which was the maximum that the programme I was using could record). So, if you are looking for a USB-C cable for high speed data transfer, don't purchase this one! Can anyone recommend a USB-C to USB-C that is fast?
Not had it for long - only 2 days but from the outset a few key qualities stand out: 1. Fast charging - able to charge my note 10+ at +1%/minute, using the fastest charging power bank - easyacc 4 port - Green Port: DC 5-6V/3A spec, which shows very good wires used for charge conduction. 2. Fastest data transfer - at 10gbp/sec, faster than most wires which is 5gbp/sec (2nd best) - thus ideal for transferring things or supporting UHD monitoring. 3. Sturdy cable - not fully tested due to only have it for 2 days and is not braided however the connection points appear quite think and robust so it at least appears to be quite durable.
Overall, I do believe the name amazon 'basics' is underrated as the item is relative cheap but does many things - as summarized above better than other third party USB-C items - I recommend reading over the item description and trying it out yourself to compare - if the quality is what you expected there is always the (responsibly) return option :).
