I'm rather dissatisfied with the performance of this cable. I usually order Cordial cables for studio use so this cable's lacking came as a rather unfortunate surprise.
I purchased this cable because I needed to connect my Scarlett 2i2 to my laptop, besides my stationary PC.
My stationary PC is hooked up with the provided cable that came with the interface and this works 100%.
When looking at the pictures of the Cordial cable on the page it seems to be as girdy and fat as the standard cable which I always go for in cables, but this doesn't seem to be the case when it is shipped. That was the first little disappointment: a thin plasticky cable arrived.
Next when hooking my laptop up with the new Cordial cable, the interface turns on, then off, then on, then.... you get the picture.
I managed to get it working after a lot of tries - that is only until I engage phantom power to power my large diaphragm mic. Then it turns off again. This time completely off.
Wherever the error lies (for example maybe with my USB-ports on the laptop or maybe the length of this cable) everything can be solved in any usb port on any system with or w/o phantom power, IF I use the provided cable by Focusrite.
Therefore this cable is either bad from production errors or just of general bad quality.
2 stars because this cable baaaaaarely scrapes by as usable, but in overall performs horribly.
I definitely do not recommend buying this cable! If possible find and buy the one that Focusrite provides with their Scarlett range, as I own both the 2i2 and 18i20 and the cables provided here works 100%
