Picked up a couple of new comnputer items, including some printers and need some cables (mostly USB) - is there any practical difference between brand name cables, cheapie no-names from China or super delux rhodium plated dilithium cables?

Guess I could go to the local office store or CompUSA or Circuit City, but not in a hurry and figure they probably overcharge for that sort of thing... any internet stores have really good cables for a really good price?

oh yes, here is one of the printers (laser duplex), pretty good deal I thought...

High quality cables only matter when using
very long lengths of cable.
Don't pay through the nose, but don't buy obvious crap.

Good tip! That place is a bunch cheaper than CompUSA or CC (USB printer cable was $25-30 at the stores, about $5 at A2Z)

much obliged!



ETA: shipping was very reasonable and went out the same day.
