I am not one to write bad reviews for products normally however,this product has nearly damaged my ps3, surround sound system and my pc capture card.I have had two of these cables and they are sent different to the image, they come with a dull chrome effect on the ends not gold. I have one of the gold ones which i bought from a different company and it works fine however, the one i was sent is made out of a brittle plastic. It goes into the optical input fine but when you try to remove it the plastic breaks and gets stuck in the input. Three out of the four ends broke off the two leads after only attempting to remove them once. I can assure you it is difficult to remove the broken end from your devices. I know this is a cheap product and you cant expect much but i didnt expect it to disintegrate when used. I recommend you try to buy a more expensive lead and do not buy this as it could be very expensive to replace your devices.
