    Good cable

    posted by mixtrader1001 on 11/19/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    This is a good cable. Gets the job done. Connects normally and doesn't drop. Spring-loaded rolling can be paused by holding it still at any point. Just like that – you hold it at some point and the mechanism comes to a halt. Then push it a little outwards ...
    Cons:
    When it rolls, it does very quickly. Not to just be left free, to not break. Sometimes the cable entangles and you have to put ...

    Nice and handy retractable cable

    posted by Trogain on 01/29/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    I have owned this retractable Mini-USB cable for over three years. I am very happy with its quality. It's easy to carry around: all in all it's reliable piece of tech. Tested: works with HTC Hero (for both charging and data transfer) and Canon S100 (data ...
    Cons:
    There are no cons really. After all it's relatively simple retractable cable.

    Cheap Handy but a little too short

    posted by Hafnium on 12/11/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    It is a very cheap and handy USB cable. I use use it for mobile test equipment that requires 2 usb cables. It is very handy to wind-up the cable when the equipment is not in use.
    Cons:
    Quality, it doesn't look it will last very long. The retraction mechanism is not always easily releasing. Length of the cabl...

    It could be little cheaper. Also it could be longer. I wanted to use it in my car to charge my phone which is mounted on my win...

    useful cable

    posted by Juso00 on 11/18/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It works, price is good, building quality would be better, also price is quite high. It is very useful, it goes a small space. Also the cable will not mess because of that retractable system. It works with charging or data transfer.
    Cons:
    Sometimes retractable system gets stuck. Also this item looks a little fragile. Hope it doesn't broke. Cable would be longer, e...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    - It is very compact and convenient so I use it as a backup item for all my USB devices - Works perfectly both for charge and for data, and transfer speed is as good as any other USB 2.0 cable - Tested with Lacie external hard disks, HTC Magic, Samsung Gala...
    Cons:
    - Looks fragile, even tough it has been working for one year without any problem, so it is probably sturdier than it looks - No...

    A tangle free cable for on-the-go users

    posted by adriantc on 10/29/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Could be a little cheaper, but worth the price considering you won't have to deal with tangled cables ever again. They should make them without that white sticker.
    Cons:
    As with the other retractable cables, the retracting mechanism doesn't seem very reliable. Expect that at least one of your cab...
