OK, here's the first unit. Going out for test. I made it a 6' cable. It came out really nice. Particularly proud of these cables.

I've tested the cable :) I am happy to report all the link cable games work perfectly! The cable design is solid! Well done Kevin and thanks!

Great Xiden!

I'll have my second DC console monitor coming tomorrow. Then I'll have a complete setup to test each cable prior to shipping. Right now I'm building up all the connectors and so cables should start shipping out by this weekend. Definitely by Monday. It will take me probably a week or two to get them all shipped. I'll send an email update out to people who ordered as well.

These look great. Glad to see there is a good quality alternative. I really hope we see some homebrew supporting the vs cable in the future.

I received mine a while ago, and love the quality! A good friend of mine is coming over this weekend to try it out properly and I will report back with some footage. Those end caps are a neat touch.

Kevin was able to make a 12' cable and it works :). Just in case anyone wanted longer cables.
