From the seller:
For details as to how this item received the given rating, see below:
Strong cable that gets the job done. The only down side is that you have to flip it one way to get audio. Aside from that, it's a really nice and strong cable.
Packaging could have been better, no need for plastic wraps/bags/etc.
*Note, there are two ratings applied to the reviewed item. "Product rating" and "Packaging rating". The actual product will not be impacted by the packaging as these are two separate ratings.
In regards to packaging, the following are contributing factors against the "Packaging rating":
In an effort to globally reduce and promote less usage of plastic, any usage of plastic or non-environmentally safe packaging/products/material will be marked negatively.
Single use items that do not biodegrade or cannot be easily recycled (see point above on plastics).
The packaging rating is being introduced to help drive a shift to more sustainable and environmentally friendly resources.
