If you care about getting the best quality USB cables, this if for you. 

Good quality USB cables have 1) less overall loss through the cable, 2) linear loss profiles,  3) ample margin to specification requirements, and 4) production consistency.  The better the quality the cable, the more insurance you have to prevent unwanted USB connection issues.  We were surprised that USB cable quality can vary so greatly and decided to share this benchmarking info with everyone, especially since most people can't tell the difference between the USB cables being offered online or at a store.

Unlike most online reviews, we use test equipment specially designed for cable testing- the GRL DI Tester from Granite River Labs.  We then applied big data techniques to develop a cable analysis and benchmark scoring system to make it easier for everyone to tell the difference in USB cable quality.

Not all USB Cables are created equally.
