    Good solution to a mouse problem

    The way my home office is setup, my wireless mouse is 2.5 feet away from the desktop PC with a hutch and monitor between the two. The USB receiver was plugged into the back of the PC to keep the front USB slots available for other uses. This was causing the signal to my mouse to have issues. I purchased this cable, plugged it into the back of the PC, and routed the other end under the hutch so it was only 12 inches from the mouse. Problem solved.

    My printer needed to be placed on a different desk to make room on the primary work space. It uses wifi and USB connectivity but the USB cord was not long enough. This extension allowed me to keep it hard connected as I do not have the wifi on all the time. I have other USB extensions, they are great to have on hand for phone chargers, tablets and other devices. Even use in car to send power to the back seat tablets on long trips.

    Was looking for a 6 ft cable for my iPad. Local store was out of them. The nice sales person suggested this cable in its place. She assured me that it would work as she uses it it for the same thing for her device. Got it home, plugged it in and was quite please that it indeed worked and took care of my need. However, when I tried to disconnect my Apple cable from it it would not release it. Although an aggravating situation, the cable does work and fulfills my need. I'm satisfied, but will not buy the cable again if needed. I'll stick to Apple.

    Worst extension, doesn't work

    I wanted a USB extension cable for my gaming PC to connect to Xbox One controller. I already have a 6' USB to mini-USB cable. I wanted to have more room to stretch. Bought this, connected it and started playing PC game and heard a ding and noticed controller wouldn't function. I unplugged mini-USB back into controller, heard the ding and it worked. This has done this about 8 times and it is very frustrating. I'm taking back, and getting the Xbox One wireless adaptor to play PC games with wireless controller.

    Wanted to connect my flash drive to our new wall mounted tv without having to pull tv out every time. First bought a sync wire at the big online megastore. The female end was way too tight so that it wouldn't fit. They were kind to give me a refund without returning item but I still wanted one that worked. It was only $8 there compared to $25 at Best Buy but this insignia brand works perfectly. Yay!!!

    I share a printer between a desk top and a lap top computer. I could not find a USB switch so used this cable to extend the desk top over to the printer. The printer cable can connect to this one and so the desk top or I can unplug the printer from this cable and go directly to the lap top. I find it works extremely well if you are not able to link though a router. I was very fortunate to find this at Best Buy, no other place I looked had it.

    Bought a cam for my desktop PC and the cable wasn't long enough to go where I needed it to plug into my USB port when I got it out of the package don't know why they made it too short so I had to get an extension cable to reach where I need it to go and Best buy had what I needed it was the first place I had thought that might have one and they are my favorite place to shop and the staff is very helpful when you have a question

    Good Quality USB Extension Cable

    I needed a USB extension cable and went to Best Buy because they always have a good selection to choose from and helpful associates to answer any questions I have. With so many cables available, it is important to me that the one I am picking out is really the correct size. They never make me feel foolish asking questions. This is good quality and works great for me!

    This is one of those things that you don't even realize how much you need one until you get it. We all have those fancy plugs that have the USB charger ports but then instead of buying a bunch of really long charger cords for our phones, if you just get one extension and use your regular cords and life is grand. And this thing works perfectly it's nice and thick and durable, and it's just a dream.

    So useful when I give presentations!

    I bought this USB extension because I use a presentation clicker a lot for my job. I often speak in different venues where the direct signal needed for the clicker to operate is not feasible because of a wall in a classroom or church. This extension solves this problem by allowing me to plug the extension into the computer and put the receiver anywhere I need it to to function properly! I no longer need a co-worker to change my slides during a presentation!

    Most products come with extremely short USB cables. This may be fine if one has a laptop but everyone does not want or use laptops! For those of us who enjoy our towers, a short USB cord can prove to be a pain in the rear! With this six foot extension cable, flexibility and joy have returned to our world! Simply connect it to your USB device and plug extension cable into your USB slot! It works extremely well!

    An excellent USB cable extender

    As you might expect, it does exactly as you ask of it, which is to extend the range of a USB device by extending the cable length. These cords come in multiple variations of length. I found the 6' one to be economical, not too long, but long enough for my needs, which was to connect an external BD-RAY player to my laptop, since my laptop had USB ports on either side, but the BD-RAY player's existing USB cable length was insufficient.

    I needed a long USB cord to connect my Canon EOS 80D to my laptop while shooting night sky images. Originally, I tried to find a longUSB Mini C to USB A, this USB female to male extension is a much better option, because I can use it with any of my other USB cords to get the extra distance occasionally needed.

    Insignia cables have never let me down I'm still using the last one I bought about 7 years ago but needed another for another room so I wouldn't have to keep taking the cable with me. These are perfect for charging my controllers while being able to play when my couch is out of reach of the standard charge cable. No to mention I can run it under and through my couch so I don't have a cable tripping people or worse knocking out my cord!

    I was re-purposing an older computer at work, one that didn't have bluetooth in it. When I plugged the USB bluetooth receiver for the mouse/keyboard combo into the computer, I found it wouldn't work because the computer was sitting under the an metal office desk. So a quick trip to Best Buy for this 6' USB A-B cable and now my mouse and keyboard work perfectly. Couldn't ask for a better cable at a very reasonable price.

    good hub but a little expensive

    I worked on my computer so I know it functioned correctly, but I wasn't able to get it solve the issue I was having with using a wired XBOX360 controller on an Arduino USB Host Shield, but I am almost certain that was due to my insufficient knowledge of Arduino and usb drivers than anything else. So my end conclusion is that it's a good product but a little more expensive than I was hoping.

    Yep, This cable is definitely six feet long! It went from one device to the other with power and communication. Works just as well as the $50 monster cable version. It's a USB cable, What can I say about a USB cable? It seems well built and the ends seem to be proper with strain reliefs and lack of fragility. Everything you ever wanted in cable. The length advertised and connects two things together !!!

    I bought it for my smart TV to watch movies out of the flash drive. Now I don't have to reach behind the TV to look for the USB input with a flash light. I can just plug it in from my TV stand in the front with no hassle. You can also buy another one for your computer and leave it plugged in, so you don't have to reach behind or under your computer.

    I purchased two of these cables to connect my corsair gaming mouse and keyboard to my custom computer because they wouldn't reach. The cables are very pricey for what they are so that's why I gave 3 stars. Otherwise, they do exactly what they are suppose to without any issues and have been using them and even unplugging and bending them for over a month and still no problem.

    Have an external hard drive with a very short usb cord (2 feet) and couldn't find a longer cord. Next option was a usb extension cord. Found this easily at my local BB store and now I am able to enjoy my laptop in my recliner with access to the external hard drive where all of my family photos are, etc.
