I have had a few third party usb c cables that claim to be good for the quest 2 using the usb Type A ports and to be honest third party cables can't hold a candle to the offical oculus fiber optic cable for oclus link.
The main benefits are you head set will charge and it will charge fast, how ever you need a REAL usb c port on your computer NOT AN ADAPTER I do think alot of the issue with people having problem are before there computer is not up to date, mainly there MOTHERBOARD if you have cheaped out on the motherboard in you PC built, you will most likely not be able to use this cable. Only get this cable IF YOU HAVE A MODERN MOTHERBOARD that is decent with usb c ports on the back.
Over all I am blown away how good the quality of graphics are now that oculus link are out of beta and the link cable shines, you want PC gaming to be lag free this is your cable handsdown but only if your PC has a USB C port, if you don't have that don't bother getting this untill you upgrade you motherboard or buy a pcie usb c port card.
This cable is for people that don't cheap out on motherboards and get the latest IO on there boards.
I have also tested this cable out on a macbook pro 16 inch intel in bootcamp windows and works great too.
The MAIN issue is that, this IS NOT the best way to experience PCVR on your quest headset, not by a long shot. I find my performance lackluster while using this cable.
I would suggest someone who is aiming to play pcvr to try the MUCH superior method of wireless streaming via virtual reality, it's 80% cheaper, performs better, wireless, and its just mind blowing tbh. Try that if your network can handling it first before buying this cable.
I move around alot and live in sharehouses so having this cable as a backup makes sense.
- Light & length is long enough to power the Quest 2 for far more than 2 hours of gaming/movies watching (most important)
- Charging is possible quite fast if you connect it to any USB-C 3.x port.
- Great performance on PCVR gaming using Oculus Link.
- A bit high on price.

As it happens, it does work well! I did the speed test and it came back at 2.1 to 2.2gbps or whatever the unit of measurement was.
It doesn't click nicely into the port on my PC but does when I plug that end into the Quest 2. Yet other cables do click firmly into my PC. So I've strapped it to other cables coming out of my PC so that it doesn't get nudged out.
It works well. This is a review of the cable and not PC Link but the image quality is impeccable and the latency is no different to playing natively on the Quest 2's build in CPU.
Being tethered isn't ideal but it's a lot better than the triple thickness cable on the Vive. If you use your brain, you can put the cable over your shoulder and down your back in such a way that it doesn't inhibit game play. I tend to turn with the pad anyway so I'm always facing in one direction (in the real world) and the cable behind me has no impact.
One thing to note, the battery still drains when playing with this cable. The USB port can't provide enough power to run the headset so some drain will occur, only no where near as great when running on battery alone.
It doesn't get a 5 star review due to the disgraceful pricing, but would if half the price.
