    It's an extension cord...

    It would be hard to get this sort of thing wrong. The cord does what it needs to do. I am using it to allow a USB hub to sit comfortably on the desk rather than have it dangle from the computer. So far, after a month of use we haven't seen any problems with the cord.

    Disappointed

    When I got the part home. I realized that it was a USB 2.0 rather than a USB 3.0. I was coming out of the back of the CPU with a slot for USB 3.0, and then dropping back to 2.0 and then going into the travel Hub that was 3.0. I took the Extension cable back and learned that Best Buy does not make a 3.0 Extension cable. I had to go to another supplier for the part.

    Due to placement of the USB port on my new printer, my old 15' USB cable was a bit short, so I bought this extender. It is made from thin wire (not a good thing) and grossly overpriced, but it filled my need when I was in a major hurry to get work printed and finished.

    I needed just a few more feet to allow me to move my printer to the other side of my desk. I went to Best Buy and of course like always, they had exactly what I needed right in stock. No online ordering and waiting 5 days! This was a little expensive in my opinion, but considering they had it in stock and I was able to complete my project the same day, I was happy, happy, happy!

    I use this to connect USB Drives to my TV, this way I don't have to move the TV to get to the back to connect the USB drive. Also use it on one of my desktop machines, so I don't have to move the desktop to connect the USB drive. Very handy.

    I was very glad to find this USB 2.0, Extension Cable with 6 foot cable. Makes plugging in my flash drive so much easier now that I no longer have to plug flash drive into the computer tower but can instead plug in flash drive into cable extension that rests on my desktop. 480 Mbps allows for quick download.

    USB Extension Cord

    Was at Best Buy and bought a 7-unit USB 3.0 port unit and needed a USB extension cord. This extender works fine, but I was real disappointed that they did not have any USB 3.0 extenders in the store at any length. Am I missing something? Maybe the differnce in speed is negligible. I don't know. I;m having no trouble with the one I bought.

    Maybe too long?

    I added this to a mini usb cable that was too short. Tried on a usb to terminal - not enough signal, tried on drive to usb. Enough signal to see the drive not enough to read the files on the drive. In short this is too long for some devices. Choose the shortest you need. Dont go 6 foot if you can get by with 3ft.

    When I ordered my iMac I also ordered the keyboard with number keypad which is hard wired to the keyboard end and usb to computer. The USB however is extremely short and it would not fit on computer designed desk...too too short...so I had to buy an extension and now all is good. But Mac should tell you that when you buy it.

    Bought 2 to use so I could sit on my couch and still use my keyboard/mouse. Works great if you dont have a wireless kb/mouse available, but they arent worth $25 apiece, they arent even brand name, they're just in-house best buy brand.

    I am very pleased with my purchase. The web site said there were 6 in stock at my local store but when I got there they had only one left and it was in an opened package. I was thankful they had one or I would have not been pleased to have taken my lunch hour to drive there and leave empty handed.

    I find that you can never have enough of these in your kit - there is always a need and on occasion you will have clients that just feel the need to move a printer or rearrange their desk - Don't make unnecessary trips out to hunt these up - Stock 4 and be happy about it.

    I needed the extension to hook up a tape player to my PC that was used to convert a cassette tape of a conversation done years ago between my wife's grandmother and her father. I was glad to find it as the cable provided with the cassette player was not long enough.

    Bought this to extend the USB cord that connects two DVD players for a vehicle. The cord that came with the DVD players was not quite long enough to reach between the seats. This extension worked great and did not affect the picture or sound quality.

    Was having connectivity issues between my wireless keyboard and mouse with the PC. Added two of these extender cables, bringing the USB receivers much closer to the devices, and no more issues! Works great!

    I am satisfied with the quality of this cable but I would have purchased a less expensive product alternative if the store would have carried more varied inventory. I bought this item as a matter of convenience.

    I was looking for a USB extension cable to be able to connect my keyboard by routing the cable beneath the work surface. Most keyboard cables are too short for this. The Insignia cable was perfect for the job. It was a good length and it worked as expected. No issues. Thank you!

    Well, it's a cable and it works! I think they invent things that need new cables, I had one million cables, but not this one. And I have every socket, but a 19/32 I refuse to buy, that socket. ViseGrips or Bust

    This cable is a staple in computer station set up. It provides an option for setting components directly adjacent to the work station or in a slight remote location. The cable is also useful for travel when an extended charger cable would be beneficial.

    The perfect USB extension cable

    I moved my computer to a different location and then found out my USB keyboard was barely long enough. I decided to buy an extension to allow maximum room to move my keyboard for typing and cleaning. This 6' USB extension cable worked out perfect and solved my problem.
