    A working usb extender

    posted by Python1320 on 01/08/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It provides enough power and indeed has a chip in the black box which repeats the usb data and makes it operate over longer cables. You can basically have 10 meters with this if you have 5 of cable on the other side of the black box in the cable!
    Cons:
    The plastic cover breaks easily. (definitely doesnt handle stepping on it) Probably can't be used outdoors since the repeater ...

    posted by Karrashin on 12/29/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Product does exactly what it should do. I bought this extension cable to use with my keyboard, which does it's job perfectly. I also tried using it to connect an usb key, also no problems. You can't expect the same speeds as when you directly insert the usb...
    Cons:
    No cons to speak of after a month of use.

    5M USB Power-Boost Extension Cable

    posted by BogdanMorgun on 09/19/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    LONG, this is the longest length you can have USB devices plugged in. The price is right, EXACT same cable goes around here for 5X as much making this an excellent buy if you need lengthy USB cable that actually works.
    Cons:
    Seems slower than a standard cable straight to USB, so I wouldn't use it for things that require actual speed, like USB wireles...

    Just plug and play. I did not have much confidence in the product but it works very well! Use it with multiple devices (cameras, wifi card, sound card, printers ..) No need to worry about cable length. Every device that connects operate smoothly (usb 1 and ...
    Cons:
    No cons.

    Works

    posted by aeris on 03/11/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Has worked fine for months. I use it to connect a corded mouse to a computer that's on the other side of the room. - Affordable. I can't even get a non-powered cable at local stores for this price. - The female connector is tight enough to hold a dangli...
    Cons:
    - The plastic cover came off, but it was easy to put back together. I used scotch tape.
