Good For It's Price – Retractable USB to Mini-USB Data Cable (74cm-Length) Reviews

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

Pros:
- Cheap.
- Easy to use.
- Doesn't get in the way.
It's cheap which is always good. Easy to use. Simple pull both ends, locks when it's fully outstretched then just tug on it to retract it. Won't get in the way because it's not overly long and it's retractable.
Cons:
- Built cheap.
- High gauge wire.
When it's full extended, you can, with fair ease, slide the holder around which will cause one end of the wire to retract all the way. I would've preferred a slightly lower gauge wire since wire this high gauge can break easily.
Other:
It cannot retract properly unless you fully extend both ends before retracting.
I use it as a data cable for my HTC Eris.
Bottomline:
It's good for it's price and it gets the job done. It's short but it works for me.
