Would not recommend. Seller is unresponsive. Ordered two cables from their website, each took 3-4 weeks to arrive which is fine. However, the last cable I ordered does not work (USB-C). I've reached out multiple times about the faulty cable with no response. To echo the other comments - no, the USB-C has not been fixed. My order arrived last week and does not work.

If you plan on using these with a CTRL keyboard, the cable is only rated at USB 2.0 and as such will cause the LEDs to flicker/dim. I learned that the hard way.

The cable that comes with the CTRL is USB 3.0 and the LEDs will only function properly if plugged into a 3.0 port. If you use a 2.0 cable, the LEDs will flicker/dim, no matter what type of port you plug it into.

I really want to purchase a USB-C cable, but the comments regarding the fit and durability are mega concerning. Have these issues been addressed @mechcables ?

Oh man tell me about it. Massdrop is essentially useless for Canadians... Hm I am asking this question though because I work for a company that has been making cables (among other products) for 30 years and we are thinking of making our own line of cables like this. Just looking on how to improve and give customers more options.

I would get one of these, but my Laser cable came with a bad USB C connector that would not insert into any device. Doubt I will ever get another since they refuse to acknowledge it as a widespread issue with their product.

If you don't mind a little soldering, you can get new USB-C connectors and fix it.

Got these about a year ago. They look fantastic, but they have stopped working. The connection goes in and out to, to the point that it is unusable.

The USB-C connector has a beefy strain relief that is crimped around the insulation, then the conductors are soldered to the connector PCB. Why I know this? The tolerances on the USB-C connector were such that it would not fit into any USB-C port.

These cables are kind of overrated. Just got my dev/tty cable from an earlier drop and the color on that one was mixed up and the accent color was used for main part of the cable. Will buy all my cables from zapcables in the future.

I contacted massdrop support and received a full refund, I'd suggest doing the same as they don't have any replacements. They let me keep the cable which is nice, maybe I'll find an adapter for it. Never buying the USB C option again from mechcables.

I also received my USB C cable and the male end cannot be inserted into a female port. I tried multiple boards and my phone :( Really disappointed as I spent nearly 50 USD on this cable.

I just received my cable today: USB C to USB A with a 7" coil, and unfortunately it seems as though the USB C connection is too small for a USB C port? I'm attempting to plug my cable into the Massdrop Alt board and it physically will not plug in. I've also attempted plugging the cable into my phone and a USB C charger with zero luck as well. Did I just get a bad connector? :(

I would really like to know the same. I have been told that heat shrink is an inferior method to connect the cable to the connector. Unless of course it is double injected like stock cables and then heat shrinked just for looks. I want to see what the cable looks like without the heat shrink.
