Cons: The Golden Premium Toslink Digital Optical sounds like a very expensive device but it isn't. The darn thing was delivered defective other wise as a piece of junk. Looks can be deceiving in this package. With its nice designs and gold ends the digital optical cord is just a decorative piece rather than a functioning tool needed to transmit audio/sound. If your looking for tech to fit you digital optical holes Don't Choose This ONE!

Cons: I purchased this as well as three CAT6 cables...all of them Belkin. None of the cables were made very well, with this one being a cable I had to replace with a cheaper one from a vendor I had never heard of. After plugging this cable into my TV and HTS, I was very disappointed to hear no sound coming over. The TV sensed that the cable was plugged in, but no sound. I jiggle the wire a bit and get sound for very brief moments. I got a different cable from a different vendor and plugged it in and it worked immediately. I had the same issues with the CAT6 cables Belkin makes as well as the cable will show unplugged if it gets disturbed at all. All three of them. Generally I do not leave bad reviews without trying to get replacements but these were two different types of cables and of four cables, none had quality connections. To me that means a major quality issue, not just bad luck or a bad batch. And no, I did not kink the cables or cut the cable or something weird. These were pristine cables that did not fully function because of intermittent data loss due to bad connectors. I re-did the RJ45 connectors on one of the CAT6 cables and it works fine now. I will be doing the same to the other two...but this one goes in the garbage because I have no way of fixing optical cable.
Other Thoughts: If you were to ask me my opinion of Belkin a year ago I would have said sure they make decent stuff. But after my last purchase I would have to say steer clear. At least steer clear of their optical and network cables.

Nice cable but has compatibility issues with my Intel NUC tosslink output
Pros: Well made. Solid.
Cons: Does not work perfectly with my Intel NUC. After hours of goofing around in windows for a solution i found that if i plug the male portion on my NUC not all the way in BOOM i got DD sound. If all the way in i get NOTHING. Could be a problem on the NUC itself or on the cable design.
