  • Very useful for my portable HDD

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    -Allows normal USB A plug to be converted to mini plug for use with portable HDD
    -The female plug is internally encased which hides the sharp edge
    -Small and handy
    -Allows multi purpose usage of a single USB cable
    -Build quality is very good
    -Connectors are secured when connected

    Cons:

    No cons for what its purpose is.

    OtherThoughts:

    Bought this because the cable that came supplied with my HDD is a single one and power may sometimes not sufficient to power the drive. Got another Y-cable for another HDD but using a USB A plug. With this adapter, I am able to use the Y-cable for my HDD with mini-USB.

    Bottomline:

    Apart from what I have mentioned earlier, this adapter may have much more uses. Therefore, if you think you need one, go get one since its reasonably cheap.
