Question Advise on where to buy MicroUSB cable on a budget

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, recently got the new 8900 and wanted to get a few micro-usb cables to replace the old mini's.. Not so easy.. I've ordered 4 cables from Newegg, deciding to go with the Nippon Labs 6 ft version.

On arrival, I discovered that two of the cables didn't work. Confusingly, I could see the blackberry as storage, however the blackberry device manager wouldn't recognize the device as connected to the USB port. The RIM OEM cable works with no problems. I also noticed that the newegg cables are somewhat thinner and more flexible compared to the OEM one.
Any idea what would be a good place to buy a few working cables without overpaying?

On a separate note, I think, RIM should have given all the veteran customers 5 free cables.. What do you think?
