The cable itself can work as a stand-alone product connecting two devices with standard size digital audio connections or, combined with the adaptor, connecting one device with a standard size connector and another with a mini optical output. The cable is lightweight and flexible and this product should be easy to pack for travel.
Like other Belkin products, this item appears to be a high quality product that performs well. My only reservation relates to its price of about $18 (as of the date of this review.) A cable and adaptor that should give comparable performance can be purchased as separate items at Amazon for less.
Some devices you might use this for would be getting optical audio out of a set-top TV box to your stereo, sound bar, A/V receiver, etc. Anything with an optical input you can put sound into with this and anything with an optical output, you can take sound out of from this.
The neat feature with this cable is that it includes an adapter for the mini optical connections. Not too many devices use that mini connection, but there are a few, such as Apple computers. Some Apple computers like Mac Mini or iMac, certain generations, have both analog and optical audio come out of the same audio out port (the computer detects what time of cable is plugged in). The adapter included with the cable lets you take sound from such "mini" sources. I also have an old iPod Hi-Fi Speaker that actually uses the mini adapter for the input of sound. That is why in some rare cases, you might actually have wished Belkin included a mini adapter for both ends of the cable if both devices, input and output, used the mini connector.
Oh, another device that uses mini optical output is the Apple Airpot Express to stream audio. Overall, there might be some cheaper cables out there, but Belkin attempts to bring you some versatility with the product by including the mini adapter. The versatility would have been enhanced had they included two adapters. Good product, but there might be cheaper alternatives.
