Quality short USB-C cable

PostSat Sep 18, 2021 9:10 pm

Connecting an external SSD to the BMPCC4K is easy to do, difficult to optimise. Can anyone recommend a good quality, short USB-C cable that supports 1 Gbit/s transfer rates? It's difficult wading through all the "charging cables" and other mis-specified junk.

EDIT: I am in the EU.

This cable has never failed me in over a year of use on my BMPCC 4K. My cats chew on my Samsung T5 cable because it is so gummy. They don't like to chew this one because it is harder and better shielded. It's rated at twice the speed of USB 3.1.

A special line of cat-retardant cables would do so well.

Thanks for your help.
