A working usb extender – 5M USB Power-Boost Extension Cable Reviews

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 is not water tight, but nowhere does it say you could :)
Other:
Good cable, good connectors. Nicely built and definitely long enough.
Bottomline:
If you need usb extension this is what you want.
