No, not at all. The first series of Blue Ribbons (it is a whole family of
connectors, not just the "Centronics" style. In fact, it is mostly just a
catchy name, because of the blue plastic they use) did have some
reliability problems, but they were corrected. I have not seen a new
design (since 1960, anyway) with these older Blue Ribbons.

Amphenol did make some really good connectors as well.
