Good product at an excellent price. – 5M USB Power-Boost Extension Cable Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Good build quality, excellent USB throughput. Good cable thickness. Also works with bus-powered devices. I have tested it with usb to serial converters, usb sticks and spectrometers.
Cons:
Exterior of the female usb connector is not shielded. Shielding it may protect against short-circuit in some applications. Other than that the build quality is excellent and the product appears to be well constructed.
Other:
Shielding the female connector side to avoid contact with other metal surfaces.
Bottomline:
Excellent product for the right price. Always comes in handy.
