Good extension cord for those overly short OEM cords.

I had a powered USB 3.0 hub I wanted to move to the other side of my desk. The USB cord it came with was maybe 2 feet at the most. This seemed like the perfect solution to my issue. It works great. I have no issues with it. Has helped me de-clutter my desk and made some USB 3.0 ports easier to access. So far, it's working fantastic. Would recommend.

Long Length And Quality Cable

I purchased the 9-foot version of this cable to connect an 8-bay hard drive array to my iMac with Retina 5K Display computer. The cable that came with the 8-bay array was rather short. This 9-foot AmazonBasics cable enabled me to place the hard disk array at a greater distance from my iMac. I could not be happier with the build quality and performance of this cable. I try to find AmazonBasics brand products first, as all AmazonBasics products that I have owned to date have been of exceptional quality!

Mine didn't work with Anker 7 Port USB 3.0 hub.

Bought this to stretch my Anker 7 port USB 3.0 hub out to the other side of my desk. Would not work.When using this cable with my Anker hub, Windows 10 continually reported ""A USB device has malfunctioned and exceeded the power limits of its hub port. You should disconnect the device."" Tried moving ports on my USB 3 card, rebooting. Same behavior.Removed this cable and used the original 3' cable that came with the Hub. Now there are no more errors and it works happily.

Good cord, looks well made and no difference in the speeds I was seeing in a factory cord for my USB hub. Came in the length I ordered, so all in all good purchase.Edit :My original cord was way too close to my router due to its short length, Looked as if it was causing some of my WiFi issues and my IoT devices, specifically the 2.4 GHz. With this cord I could route it away from my router and eliminate all my issue with my WiFi. So yep 100 % happy so far, I even bumper up the star rating as I have not had any issues at all.

Didn't expect this to solve my problem, but it DID!

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad W530 laptop with two USB 3 ports I'll call A and B. When using my AC-powered Vantec USB 3 3.5' External HDD, I would get USB 3 speeds when plugged into A, but B would get only USB 2 speeds (and I would get Windows 7's ""this device can perform faster if you use USB 3"" nag). But to complicate matters, my port-powered Innnateck portable USB 3 2.5' drive enclosure would operate at USB 3 speeds when connected to either A or B. Oh great, one of those oddball (likely) hardware issues. (I guess the glass half-full view is that the Innateck worked at Super Speed in both A And B, so at least B wasn't a complete loss as far as USB 3 functionality.)Long story short, I tried a number of solutions and nothing worked. So I decided to try a different (and somewhat shorter) cable, and settled on the AmazonBasics based on some of the reviews and the specs. I got the 3-foot, which is about 9 inches shorter than the Vantec OEM cable (which I believe they had already replaced as part of an RMA of the whole Vantec assembly). I wasn't holding out much hope that switching to this cable would solve the problem, but it did! With the AmazonBasics cable the Vantec is giving me USB 3 Super Speed with port B, too. Great! Hope the solution ""sticks.""BTW, other than length and the AmazonBasics' gold-plated connectors, the two cables looked pretty much the same to me. But on closer inspection I see the AmazonBasics seems somewhat sturdier and thicker the Vantec OEM cable.

Excellent - But not a 6 foot cable!

Great cable, just a little shorter than expected.It's barely 60Inches from TIP to TIP, NOT a 6 foot cable.You have easily less than 56 inches of actual cable left to work, and even less if your device ports aren't faced DIRECTLY at each other because the thickness of this cable makes bending corners a very large, rounded curve/

I bought three of these to replace shorter USB cables that came with Docks and hubs connected to my Sonnet Allegro USB 3.0 Pro card installed on a Mid-2012 Mac Pro. So far so good. All the external hardware that I have connected by these appear to be stable. I'd certainly recommend these if you need longer USB 3.0 connections.

Toward the end of 2016 I purchased a MacAlly external case for hard drive. It had the USB 3 option so I figured I'd try it with my new MBP.Other than not being able to daisy chain USB 3 the way I can firewire drives, I'm liking it, and this connector has given no problem over the past half year.

Bought four of these. One of them stopped working after two years. How does a USB cable stop working? There was a little (and I do mean a little) tension on one connector due to a tight fit, but nowhere near the abuse I have put other cables through. I guess for $4 I can't complain too much, but seems like a USB cable should last a lot longer than the lifetime of the protocol version for which it was designed. On the plus side I didn't have to replace my scanner. I was close to giving up and then the last thing I thought to troubleshoot was the cable. Very odd.

I've had and been using this cable for 7-8 months now. It is long and great. My external hard drive dock came with too short of a USB cable which is why I got this. I get great transfer speeds in and out of my 2 hard drives on the device. I'd recommend you get this cable if you need something longer. I would recommend any external hard drives (high current devices) that you plug into this have their own power supply though.

It's a cable. It works properly with USB 3.0 devices. Not much more to say. It will not bring you to a higher level of consciousness but it will connect stuff adequately.

I bought it for the DisplayLink USB3 docking station. It didn't deliver the full speed. One of my laptop got constantly disconnected with this cable. Later I bought cables from two other vendors on Ebay and some of them worked perfectly. However, two cables from the same vendor one worked the other didn't. Therefore I think these cables are hit or miss. You have to keep trying.
