    Pros:

    - This IS an USB OTG host adapter! Not just Af-Bm converter.

    - EXCELLENT PRICE!! Just $1.1 for each USB OTG host. Generic USB OTG host cables costs about $10 worldwide.

    - It is small and lightweight.

    - Shortest wires for fastest speed.

    Cons:

    No yet found.

    OtherThoughts:

    This IS an USB OTG adapter. There are lots of similar adapters on the market even on this site. For example SKU 28991 or 26783 - but they both are NOT an OTG adapters, just "cable converters". Instead of this SKU 50944 IS and USB OTG host adapter. Difference between cable converter and host adapter is connection of 5th contact inside it's body. In converter this contact is not connected anywhere. Therefore if you use converter to connect PDA and NAND flash - then it won't work. PDA won't see flash cause it won't turn on host mode. But in host adapter SKU 50944 5th contact is bound to 4th contact. This forces PDA turn on host mode and recognize external USB devices - flash, mice, keyboards and so on. I tested it with COWON A2 PMP - with generic USB Af-Bm converter it does not see flash memory attached. But with this adaptor it works well.

    Bottomline:

    Recommended for use with PDAs, smartphones, PMPs, MIDs and other gadgets with USB OTG host mode. If you loose the sole cable from gadget package - just use this adapter.
