Good quality, reasonable performance – USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Male to Female Extension Cable (180CM-Length) Reviews

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

Pros:
The cable itself looks well-made and sturdy. The length is useful for most purposes. I tested with a USB 3.0 computer port and a USB 3.0 external hard disk drive. Using the extension cable causes a drop in the transfer rate by about 25 - 30% which may be acceptable for most everyday applications.
Cons:
There is a decrease in the transfer rate when using this cable which may be attributed to the additional inline connectors and longer cabling. This may be acceptable if speed is not crucial to an application and all you need is a longer connection.
Other:
Bottomline:
This is a useful extender cable, good enough for most computer users, but bottomline is that you should stick with a single cable which is as short as physically possible if you need to achieve maximum transfer speed.
