Top Positive Review

I purchased this extension USB cable for use with a hard drive and Y splitter to give the hard drive power from an AC/USB adapter. The Y cable wasn’t long enough to reach the power outlet, so I added this extension cable to the connection and now it does! It works perfectly for power. Note that this is a USB 2.0 cable, and not a newer USB 3.0 cable, so if you have a USB 3.0 hard drive or connector and want to transmit data with it, pay extra for a 3.0 cable that will give you faster data transmission speeds. If you just need it for power like I did, this cable works perfectly and at a great price! Overall, I didn’t find any flaws with the product and recommend it to anyone who needs a little more length to their 2.0 USB cable. 5/5 stars.

Top Critical Review

I am currently using a basic player from the National Library Services for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS). I must use the remote control device provided to some patrons due to a medical condition similar to chronic fatigue syndrome, which prohibits extensive arm movement. If you’re familiar with the NLS digital player, they come equipped with one slot for proprietary cartridges and one USB port, which may be used for either the remote control system or for a standard flash drive. Until my health made the remote system necessary, I always used a flash drive because it could hold over 950 books, compared to the 200 or so books one could get onto a large NLS cartridge. I have had some success squeezing a flash drive into the NLS cartridge slot, but not without sighted assistance and intensive labor. All of this, to say that I felt a USB extender might help. If one end could plug into the cartridge slot, then perhaps I could use the other end touse a standard flash drive without assistance. Sadly, this cord did not work for that purpose. I understand that the Perkins School for the Blind does manufacture such a product, and I have recently ordered it, but if you try to use this specific product with NLS equipment, it will beep in recognition, but will not function. Both ends connect a expected, but there is no true compatibility–the NLS player does not register that a flash drive has been connected. If you’re thinking about this drive for NLS digital player purposes, please reconsider. I have heard that the Belkin Pro Series USB 2.0 Extension Cable is much more compatible for this purpose. I will bereviewing it when I find out whether thatclaim is accurate. If you’re in a position to use NLS equipment, I assume that, liek me, it’s very difficult to return products that don’t meet your needs. So, please don’t make themistake I did in buying this cord.

Is this two cables all usb a type (not b or c tyoe)? i don’t care if it’s usb 2.0 or 3.0.
Answer: I used it to extend a camera cable male. To female

what is the cable dimension, not the ends but the actual cable thickness?
Answer: Its pretty thick. Lookz like heavy duty high quality cable. Im impress by it. Worth the purchase

Will this work with the roku streaming stick?
Answer: FYI not “anything with usb port should work properly with this 2.0 usb extender.. specially streaming devices they need more power to run the internals.. and yes you always can return it, but if you want to do that just go for a usb 3.0 extender
