The KIWI design USB-C Link Cable for Oculus Quest 2 is a USB-IF certified cable, with the highest quality and a bending capacity of 10000x. Due to the aramid fibre, the cable offers excellent tensile strength and 5X more durability. This Oculus Quest Link cable is so durable that the cable won’t break easily when in use.
This cable has worked very well with Quest and now Quest 2. It is a little on the stiff side, but not too bad. I have it plugged into my graphics card at the back of the PC tower (an RTX2080ti) and it worked from the start with zero problems.
It is not ideal for standing in VR. This is because it has to hang free to the front to be long enough to not hinder arm movement. You have to think about it when using VR in this way, so as to avoid catching the lead. However, it can be done. Roomscale VR is not an option for obvious reasons.
To sum up, I would definitely recommend it for seated VR, where you are close to the output. The output from my graphics card is about 1m away to the side. I would advise caution if it is required for standing VR. It does do the job, and to look elsewhere (i.e. wireless with Virtual Desktop) for room-scale.
Overall, the KIWI design USB-C Link Cable for Oculus Quest 2 is a good cheap alternative to the pricer official cable.
