The same is true of almost all cables with more than a few wires and in
fact all computer equipment in that the originals are good and as they
get cheaper and cheaper and cheaper, the failure rates skyrocket. Some
motherboards are now advertising "double the copper". If you are
having that much trouble you could try buying some more expensive
likely non China versions.
