Useful workaround for USB issues! – Quality USB 2.0 Extension Cable (1M) Reviews

posted by landxhp on 04/27/2011 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
I got this cable because I had some portable devices that had bad contact issues - somehow they were heavy enough to hang from my computer's frontal USB ports and:
A) Didn't charge.
or
B) Damaged the internal memory for data storage.
This cable is long enough so I can leave them on the table instead - great (and cheap) solution and I never had any problems ever since.
Cons:
Some told me the cord looks flimsy, but I own earphones with thinner cords and they never failed me, the same goes with this USB extension - it might look cheap but works great!
Other:
When you use USB cables to do data transfers, the right thing to do is to never touch the cable, otherwise the transfer might get compromised. As long as the cable is stable, it can be used for anything, not only charging but for reliable data transfering.
Bottomline:
Useful item for the everyday geek!
