Never had a cable fail on me, maybe a cheap Hosa or an ancient guitar cable. This piece of crud failed after very few uses. I thought it was my hard drive going bad. But I replaced this with my ancient 14 year old FW cable and my hard drive worked perfectly. Tried to return it but it was too late. Amazon Seller are you reading this? Please give me a refund. Never buying "Cmple" brand cables again.
Lots of problems using any version of this cable over 6ft with Presonus Studio Live 16.4.2AI. Unfortunately i cannot use anything under 12ft with my setup and the 15ft version of this cable has a ton of issues with the mixer connected to any machine, windows or mac. I did find a brand that works well at 15 feet but it was more than triple the price. If you need anything longer than 6ft to connect your presonus studio live console or other equipment, consider spending the extra money up front. however, the 6ft version of this cable works just fine.
Nothing bad to say about this cable, it feels well made and it works. I use it between a PreSonus StudioLive 32.4.2 AI desk and the FireWire card in a Windows-based DAW (PC really), and it works. For under 10 bucks, no-brainer.
