    Here is a product you can count on! Both ends fit just as I had hoped. The length of the cable was long, yet it is surprisingly light and thin, very flexible. One could say; perfection in a cable that will soon no longer exist or be needed! Like standard RCA cables or even Optical, you may want to stock up on this one now, before it becomes outdated by some new fangled creation... oh wait, it already has. It's a cable for Pete's sake, and who the heck is Pete anyway, and why do we care what he thinks. Think for yourself, don't follow Pete blindly, don't be a sheep when it comes to your cables, be an 'eyes wide open' non-sheep!

    USB cable for my camera

    Camera had error message: "Communication Error". Talked with CSR at Best Buy, he said it might be the cable. Bought it, took it home, plugged in my camera, got same error message. Oh well, have an extra USB cable now. PS: Had to bring my camera in for that error message, they sent if off, and weeks later, they returned it, NOT FIXED-they would not fix it due to a recall (plastic around lens could cause an allergy)!!!. I took it home, still got the error, put in a different memory card, and poof whalah-it worked-no error message, software came up properly. Sure wish Best Buy Geek Squad would have known that-it sure would have saved me alot of time and trouble and frustration!

    ... it carried supply voltage to a circuit board until I accidentally cut it while cutting a zip tie that was holding it. Up until that point it performed it's duties admirably. While I was saddened by it's sudden and unexpected demise, I was lifted by the memory of how well it performed right up until that time. It worked flawlessly as a means of carrying information from one board to another. I'm just glad that the machine was powered down at it's time of demise, the cable went peacefully in it's sleep.

    My Canon camera quit uploading photos to my computer. I couldn't find a solution and needed the photos for a small business. I took my camera and computer into the Geek Squad and one of the personnel checked out the problem. It was a worn out USB connecting cable (which I would never had figured out, as I was looking at the computer having the problem). They told me which USB cable to buy there at Best Buy and it fixed the problem. I'm grateful to the Geek Squad for their help.

    Good Cable - Maybe Wrong Applications

    The cable itself is fine and everything you'd expect. However, I was sold this as a replacement power cord for my Garmin GPS and told it would work just fine. It did work in the store and initially in the car, but after about the 4th time of using it in the car it no longer would recognize this as a power cord and thought it was plugging into a computer. Don't let them sell you one of these if you're looking for a replacement power adaptor for Garmin - I ended up ordering directly through them for an exorbitant price, but their products do work as advertised.

    I needed one to connect my camera to the laptop to download pics and as it's an older model, it required this connector. Luckily this was on clearance but I understood why. The USB part that connects to the laptop doesn't fit tightly so I had to hold on to the portion that was connected to the laptop each time I do a download. Works fine if you're willing to keep on doing that, but I just ended up getting another one on Amazon that I just plug in and it works immediately without any issues.

    Does the job

    This item is the cheapest HD cable you can purchase. If you are not the type of person that is interested in the best quality picture with your television than this would be perfect for you. This HD cable is very inexpensive compared to others and will do the job but if you are knowledgeable on the quality of pictures in the different levels of it then this is not for you and suggest getting information on the more expensive ones like the gold tip or the silver tip hd cables.

    It's been years since I purchased a device with a USB Mini-B connector (the thick one). However, every now and then you have the need for such a connector. In my instance, it was an older camera of a family member. They had misplaced the cable, there was no way to charge the device. Best Buy to the rescue. This cable was in stock, and the day was saved! Now, to family, I'm the hero.
