I originally purchased this to use with a keyboard that had a very short cable. I ended up just using a different keyboard before this arrived, and I liked the keyboard so much that I'm just going to keep using this. I do, however, play my Xbox on my computer so I don't disturb others here in the house. The wireless adapter for the computer is being used by someone else, so this extension was just what I needed to stay connected to my computer without having to be so close to it. My tower is on the floor a bit of a distance from where I sit, but that's not an issue with this extension.I have purchased many cables before, and they would always fall apart after a few months. A few years ago, I began purchasing these AmazonBasics cables wondering if they would be any better. So far, every single cable by them I've purchased still looks and performs like brand new. Even the HDMI cables, which usually break off at the end with other brands; they are still solid. Now that I have this USB extension, I'm going to buy a few more to sort of custom install in some of my custom furniture (usb ports in the coffee table to charge and connect to the tv without always having to move the tv, etc) throughout my house. This and all of the AmazonBasics cables are simple, inexpensive, but not ""cheap"". Keep up the good work!
