-Thick cable so it can take heavy use.
-It has a ferrite bead... so it will suppress high frequency noise. Some cables don't have that.
-Works @ USB 2.0 with usb flash drives.
-Due its long size it will no conect to external usb hard drives at first... however that can be avoided by getting a motherboard or a externally powered usb hub with more than 200mA or even more per port. Self powered usb ports can be only used for flash usb drives and externally powered hubs or devices.
-Usefull to be used to extend or conect USB hubs.
Usb powered Hard drives won't work with this cable directly or using a laptop or old motherboard with small PSU.
-The cable is well made... however needs a little extra power on source port to make usb powered Hard drives works and be detected correctly. You have been warned!
