  • Short mini USB cable

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

    Pros:

    - A hard-to-find *short cable* that allows you to conveniently connect your phone or card reader to your laptop!

    - Takes little space

    - Supports both charging and data transfer (see below)

    Cons:

    -The cable looks different from the photos, please, compare with customer's own pictures

    - The cable feels a little stiff, which, for a cable, is not an advantage

    - Not suitable for an external hard drive

    - Data transfer with USB 2.0 is SIGNIFICANTLY SLOWER (about 21 MB/sec) than with a certified USB 2.0 cable (about max speed 34MB/sec)

    OtherThoughts:

    -Comes in retail packaging

    -Short cables like this are usually sold only bundled with some hardware

    Bottomline:

    A tiny short Mini USB Data & Charging cable for those who are tired of long and clumsy standard cables. This cable is not suitable for high speed and high volume data transfer. If you needa cable for an external hard drive look somewhere else.
