I've never received anything from Monoprice that was either defective, or, seemed to have some kind of manufacturing defect. I am in no way complaining, I am only writing this review as I've never had a product from Monoprice that had some kind of defect and figured I would write about it. That shows that they can be reliable yet extremely affordable. I don't know how many times I've ordered something, from all kinds of business and LOB's where the order was messed up, or the product wasn't up to snuff. I will always order from Monoprice!!
PROS: Does the job, and for a bottom line price!
CONS: The only con I can post is that the product came with a bent d-shell housing. I was still able to plug it into the device.
