Difference between Cisco SFP Cable and StarTech.com SFP Cable

A 6' Cisco SFP Cable is $180 while amazon sells a 6' StarTech.com SFP cable for $80. Besides price, is there any difference between the two cables in terms of reliability and connection? Anyone have experience with StarTech.com cables? 

Thanks in advance.

What do you mean by "SFP

What do you mean by "SFP cable"  You mean fiber cable or twinax?

If it is just the cable, it doesn't matter.  If it is the actual SFP optic, some 3rd party optics don't work with Cisco devices.

I'm referring to the optic

I'm referring this third-party cable:

Thank you, Reza.
