Very useful for my portable HDD – Mini USB 5-Pin Male to USB A-Female Adapter Reviews

posted by luriahs on 05/20/2010 Certified Owner

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.
Other:
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.
