    A definite plus when cutting the cord.

    I recently ditched my cable and bought antennas for my TV's in order to get local channels. I used this 12ft chord to extend my access to a window that is 10 feet from the TV. I ran it under an area rug that's in front of the tv which allowed me to place the antenna in a window for the best reception. This particular room is a family room in a split-level, and is 4 feet below ground. So this cable, which boost the range of the antenna to 50 miles or more, worked perfectly. No one knows it's there but me, and the cord being under the area rug is a great camouflage. The reception I get is absolutely outstanding and there are no dangling cords to be seen to create an eyesore in that room. Absolutely a win-win!

    Great Quality USB Extension

    I needed an extension for my printer USB cable because I moved and the new setup put the printer further from my PC than the original cord would reach. I tried a couple different stores, but they only sold a long USB cable. I needed an extension because the connection to my printer would be very difficult to remove. It finally dawned on me that I should try my old favorite store! Best Buy! I'm totally satisfied with the cord & noticed the store in Port Richey has a LOT more than I expected! They not only have phone/computer goods, but also cool TV's. I will definitely return to this store!

    Worked Flawlessly; Better than Expected

    As a long-time IT professional, I was initially dubious when I first removed the cable from the package since the cable diameter was so small. In my past experience, USB cables with larger diameters were generally more reliable. However, even when added it to the length of the standard USB cable I was trying to extend, this extension cable worked perfectly with no noticable signal or performance loss. I am using it to extend the USB connection for a Brother printer/scanner to a PC and there have been absolutely no problems with either printing or scanning.

    I bought this product as a replacement charger for my nike+fuel band after searching all over for a charger, while it works to charge my fuel band I will be returning it only because I have learned that I can use my USB port on my computer to charge my fuel band. Please note I am only returning it because the cord was too long (mind you it was the last female to male wire in the store) which is why I purchased it so long in the first place.

    My desk could not accommodate the printer being right next to the laptop, and I grew tired of unplugging the laptop and moving it just to print one page. This cable was the answer. Now, the printer is wired to my laptop, and I can print without rearranging the office for every print job.

    This USB extension cable really helps with options for equipment placement. In many cases, were restricted due to a lack of length. With this addition, we're able to place the devices where we want and really do a good job with the cable management. Connection quality is very good.

    I was a little concerned about purchasing an “off brand” cable but I have to say the Insignia has delivered the same quality I have experienced in the past in much more expensive brand name cables. Will purchase again and will definitely recommend this product to anyone needing more length on the USB.

    Length For Speed

    We used to have 12 foot cords that would fit my 30 pin iPod/ipad but Apple stopped supporting 30 pin when they went to lightning. This purchase was an effort to replace a dead cord until we went to new devices. It was great for the length and the flexibility it gave while having to be tethered, but it cut the speed of the charge in half or worse. So you sacrifice sped for flexibility. Just know what you get going in

    I needed this cable to extend my racing wheel to where i was sitting. I didnt feel like waiting for shipping from Amazon and wanted to play now (I know you know the feeling). A bit pricey but it's a solid cable. Nice that best buy had something like this in stock as its getting harder to find specialty cables in physical stores.

    This extension cord is the perfect answer to what I needed. I was going to be some place where I needed the cord constantly plugged in and I could just change out from my iPad to iPhone adapters. it worked perfectly!!! I was able to easily reach and change out each plug as it needed charging! It was just what I needed! The main plug was far away and I couldn't reach it, so it was perfect for me!!!!

    This cable works really well, especially for the webcam it's hooked up to. I can place the camera on a tripod, and put the PC in another location. It works really well for business meetings and web-conferencing, where wireless connection is not feasible.

    I bought this cable to use with my thrust master racing wheel and I wanted something that was capable of fast data transfer so I had no lag in my racing wheel and this cable seems to do the trick. The only thing I wish that this cable had was USB 3.0 but doesn't seem to mater for what I'm using it for but it would have been nice.... kind of future proofing ha-ha.

    We have a couple of large displays in our office that indicate the repair status of our light rail trains, but the computer that controls these displays was several feet off to the side, and we needed a wireless keyboard and mouse to be able to see them while updating, so this extender cable made it possible for the dongle to be in range of the keyboard and mouse.

    I thought this was just a generic extension, but it actually grips the keyboard and mouse I plugged in (I bought 2 of these after trying a USB Hub that didn't work) really well. I thought i was going to have to tape the connection, but it holds on so tight you have to put a lot of effort into unplugging the devices. Pricey but every effective.

    This extension was the perfect fit for me. I needed to extend my theater system further away from my viewing area, and it was the right size. And the cost was worth it. This cord allowed me to keep my player where I was and the video player in a different location that made my picture as big as I wanted to make it. You can't go wrong at a price.

    I had been looking for an extension for my printer cable. Sometimes I like to bring my laptop to another room and print pictures,etc. I went to Best Buy and the associate was very helpful. I was able to pick out the length I needed. When I got home I had no problem connecting the extension and everything is printing out fine. I am printing as we speak.

    I bought this to extend the cord of my USB Mic; it works without issue. I will say, the female portion of the cable isn't quite long enough for a male USB to fit inside of, which I found surprising, but there's enough contact it doesn't seem to be an issue.

    I got this item because when I use multiple USB ports I wind up having to access the back of my computer and that is an issue as it is in a tight space and hard to reach. Problem solved when I used this extender to put a portable multi-port right on the desk near my mouse. No more bending and climbing under furniture! Great product.

    Tired of your cell phone power cord being to short to reach your favorite spot on the couch? Is the plug closest to your bed actually behind your bed and a pain to get to? This extension cable is the perfect answer! It can be used with all types of USB chargers! Perfect for anyone who needs more mobility then the standard 3 ft power cord will allow!

    I bought a TV which also had a built in camera for Skype, etc. The TV is mounted in a wall unit and the frame blocked the camera, so I was able to unscrew the camera from the TV and move the camera to a place that had better prospective of the room and was out of sight when not in use. I maintained functionally in a restricted mount location.
