PSA : Take a look at the cable in the picture below. If you find a deal online for a cable that looks anything like this on Amazon, Ebay, or a site like Alibaba, don't buy it. AVOID IT AT ALL COSTS.

I've looked through my history of reviews online and I have in the past purchased at least 8 different variants of this cable for review. I dug up each of these cables from my collection of bad cables since the SurjTech cable (which looks exactly like the one in the picture) fried my equipment and did some additional testing.

With some exceptions, most cheaper cables you'll buy on Amazon aren't manufactured by the brand that sells them to you. They typically go to some common suppliers with specifications and put their brand on it. (as an aside, that's why cables from iOrange-E, Cambond, F-color, and other brands are so similar in a good way).

In this case, there is a common manufacturer for the following brands that I can see on Amazon today : 
* iKNOWTECH
* NXET
* SurjTech
* TRADERPLUS
* SAWAKE

What's troubling is that when I examine the different variants of the cables from this common manufacturer, none of the variants are correctly configured using a 56 kΩ resistor, but their errors are also not consistent!

Here are the types of errors I found with this kind of cable : 
1) No CC termination
2) 5.1kΩ pullup 
3) 5.1kΩ pulldown
4) 10 kΩ pullup
5) Swapped Vbus and Gnd + 10kΩ pulldown

The last kind of cable killed my equipment. It almost seems like the manufacturer is just trying random permutations of settings and pushing out the result into the market. Scary...

Furthermore, and here's the coup de grace, EVERY one of these cables claim to be SuperSpeed 10gbps USB 3.1 cables with the logo (the SuperSpeed trident below), the packaging, and the Amazon listings.

Every single one of these "strong" braided cables are missing the 4 additional SuperSpeed wires + 1 ground return needed by SuperSpeed. This is such a terrible deception. :(

I urge anyone to keep an eye out for this kind of cable and simply ignore it. I will leave as many negative reviews as I can, but it seems like random sellers pop up on Amazon and elsewhere selling this deceptive product every day.

Bad usb A to C cable kills laptop.
 
Hi everyone. The cable reviews are going to slow down a little bit due to an incident that happened with one cable...

A cable managed to destroy my test equipment, including my $1499 Pixel 2. I've done an analysis of the failure, and it's a really bad mistake they made.

Needless to say, I am very unhappy, and this is going to affect how quickly I get through cables and other accessories in the short term since my computer is dead.

“有组织地不负责任”(organized irresponsibility)。他在《解毒剂》(Gegengifte) 一书中指出,公司、政策制定者和专家结成的联盟制造了当代社会中的危险,然后又建立—套话语来推卸责任
 ·  Translate
风险社会理论(risk society theoty)乌尔里希·贝克(Ulrich Beck)说,人类历史上各个时期的各种社会形态从一定意义上说都是一种风险社会,因为所有有主体意识的生命都能够意识到死亡的危险。的确,风险是与人类共存的,但只是在近代之后随着人类成为风险的主要生产者,风险的结构和特征才发生了根本性的变化,产生了现代意义的“风险”并出现了现代意义上的“风险社会”雏形。这体现在两点:一是风险的“人化”。随着人类活动频率的增多、活动范围的扩大,其决策和行动对自然和人类社会本身的影响力也大大增强,从而风险结构从自然风险占主导逐渐演变成人为的不确定性占主导;二是风险的“制度化”和“制度化”的风险。人类具有冒险的天性,但也有寻求安全的本能,而近代以来一系列制度的创建为这两种矛盾的取向提供了实现的环境以及规范性的框架。与市场有关的诸多制度(典型的是股票市场)为冒险行为提供了激励,而现代国家建立的各种制度则为人类的安全提供了保护。但是无论是冒险取向还是安全取向的制度,其自身带来了另外一种风...
