okay, I edited the red all caps shouting out. it was causing jitters on my screen. :-)
but joking apart: yes, there are upper limits in terms of physical properties. there often isn't as much improvement with higher expenditure. but nonetheless you do have to admit that there are shoddy cables, suffering from quality control issues or crimping or any number of other issues, so the fact is that many people have in fact experienced an improvement in going from free (or supercheap) cables, whether USB or power, to something that is put together well and to exacting standards.
please maintain a level of civil and rational discourse before turning on the all-shout fonts...
