This is just a well-made cable. Nothing more, nothing less. It fits snugly, without being lose or too tight.
I just wish that manufactures would make cables in more colours (some come in only black, some only in dark blue, and some only in gray). As more & more external paraphernalia get attached to one's computer, it gets harder to figure out what cable connects what. How about cables coming in red, green, yellow, & tan?
