Useful and nice, but... – Mini USB 5-Pin Male to USB A-Female Adapter Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
Very useful for its purposes, and itl ooks professional and well made.
Cons:
I accidentally side-swiped the memory-plug i had inserted into the adapter with my hand. While I hardly noticed touching the thing, that was enought to break the front metal mini-plug free from the plastic. It didn't fall off, but is now some 20 degrees off and the connection through the adapter is clearly broken.
Other:
This item is best used where there's no danger of accidental disturbances, such as close to a cd tray. A short cable with the same usb-plugs may be a more robust option.
Bottomline:
I think I'll buy another and try to be very careful around it.
