wasnt expecting much from this cable, being £13 and all. But when it arrived i was stunned by the build quality on it. The connectors are big and chunk, with a tight well made feel to them. They are made from very good quality materials and the brading on the wire itself is top notch. The connectors fit well and the handshaking process on my PS3 is instant, my mate with a similarly cheap cable took a good 3/4 seconds to handshake on startup. Absolute bargain.
