When to comes to custom or even pre-made coiled keyboard cables there are a lot of options to choose from. I think one of the big things that CableMod has going for them is their reputation since they’ve been doing power supply cables for a very long time and the type of customization they offer. You can fully customize your cable from the length, to the colors, and you even have options for different aviator connectors. Their online configurator is extremely easy to use even if you have no clue what an aviator connector is! The best part is they give you a live preview of your cable before you put your order in. Your customization options will be saved and CableMod provides a link for you so you can share your design with others, which is pretty cool!
In terms of their pre-made cables these are great as well, especially since you can buy them on Amazon now! CableMod offers a wide variety of colors and they are one of the few doing pre-made cables with colored aviator connectors. The quality on both our pre-made cable and custom cable is excellent. The cables feel great, the coils are straight, and the connectors have a nice finish to them. I really like that the custom cable came in a hard-shell case, but I was a bit bummed that the custom cable did not come with the cable organizer like the pre-made one does.
As far as pricing goes the pre-made cables start at $39.90 for the Classic coiled cable (no aviator) and $49.90 for the Pro Coiled Cable (standard aviator), although many of the Pro coiled cables are selling for $39.90 on Amazon! If you want to build your own custom cable a classic cable (no aviator) will start at $49.90 and a Pro cable will start at $58.90. The price may increase from there depending on your customization options.
At the end of the day CableMod’s coiled keyboard cables and excellent and a great way to really add to your desk setup! With this configurator you can really match your cable to your keyboard too! Overall ThinkComputers gives the CableMod Keyboard Cables a 9 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award!
