Default [Q] Any GOOD USB Replacement cable ?

Anyone know a GOOD usb replacement cable for the GS4 ? My stock one is starting to peel, and want to buy a reliable one or maybe a factory one, because I have tried several ones, sure all of them charge it, but none of them make a reliable connection when I need to use ODIN or ADB including the one that came with my GS2 and some LG phones.

I'm scared of those fake ebay OEM that are clones of the Original Samsung, so any recommendations ?

Thanks.

You can get an original Samsung USB cable from any of the authorized service centers. That's what I did here.

I bought 2 of these a couple of weeks ago and they work great, no slow charger issues and they fit with my Spigen case.

That's the problem. I have some USB cables that work awesome for charging and transfer files, but once used for ODIN or ADB they fail doing some weird behavior, I don't know what the original usb cable might have to be able make a flawless connection on ODIN.

Now that you brought this up I will be sure to use the cable that came with the phone.
