To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
So, I bought these knowing they were cheaper. However, I really thought the protective springs on the ends would extend the life of these. Not even 6 weeks later, my first one went out. These look and feel high quality, but if I have to buy another cord in a month, that's pretty cruddy. I'd expect it from a dollar tree cord, but at least those are only a dollar.
