PROS: Well constructed EXCEPT for the lock tabs. They fail QUICKLY. I have verified that on many of these cables.
CONS: As well as the lock tab problem, they are a bit heavy for smart phones.
PROS: Large gauge cable and excellent wire insulation.
CONS: Bad micro USB connector.
Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear about the issues experienced with PID 5458. I will pass this info to our product team so they can look into the matter further. If you would like, I can help setup an RMA for replacements. We offer a lifetime warranty for our cables and obtaining the replacements would be of no additional cost. If you wanted to proceed with the RMA, please provide the order number and I can get that started right away. Apologies again for any inconvenience and hope this helps!

PROS: Powerful, Durable, Speedy, Length options, Color options in the upgraded versions.
I haven't had these long enough to comment on the wear, but the "shoulder" of the cord seems to have "slotted" sections to it to fold as the cord folds to ADD to its durability while using the phone and charging at the same time.
CONS: None that I have experienced yet.
PROS: Much like any tool, these cables get the job done. Plug mini USB compatible junk at one end (eg. Android Smartphones) and any USB port at the other and holy moly, they be connected. End of story.
CONS: They did not summon any unicorns, wish granting genies, hot european underwear models (male OR female).
PROS: Cords are well made and they get the job done much cheaper than at the wireless store
PROS: Micro USB connects firmly into my smartphone and works well in different items ranging from USB wall jack, A/C adapter and even works well in my car too. Highly recommended if you need a 6' cable.
CONS: None noted.
BEST CABLE EVER!!! But I kid. It's a cable. Just a cable. However, the Verizon store wanted $20 for a 4 ft. USB to Micro USB cable (non gold-plated), and I got two of these, 6ft. gold-plated cables, from Monoprice for $5, including shipping. Great deal, quality product.
The cables are well made, but can seem a little stiff, but I don't find it enough of an issue not to get these. I would highly recommend people get these cables if you have a cell phone that uses micro-USB.
PROS: Bought these to charge my Blackberry phones in the car and to have extra cables at home and the office. They work as advertised.
CONS: The cable is a little "stiff"
PROS: Product works very well, thank you it is very nice too! (*****)
Anyway, as to be expected from Monoprice, the cables were wonderful. Thick, durable, and well-made the end of the connector made a tactile 'click' when I plugged it into my phone.
The only con to these cables is that I have terrible luck. After 3 days, my puppy ate one and I ran over the end of the other with my office chair. After just 72 hours of blissful high-speed charging and freedom to move about while doing so, I am depressingly back to sitting on the floor next to an outlet with a cord wrapped around my phone and bent just the right way to make a connection.
I'll definitely be tossing a few more of these into my next order from Monoprice. Better luck next time, I hope.
PROS: Everything. They were exactly what I wanted.
