This is the most common USB cable these days for connecting 'something' to your computer but... beware of the 'Micro-B vs. Mini-B' interface confusion (read below).

On this specific cable, everything is done right, including the price. It is USB 2.0 certified, meaning that it supports data transfer rates of up to 480Mbps and, if your device accepts a Mini-B plug, this is the cable to get. Maybe the 2-meter length (6+ ft.) is a little bit too much but it does not bother me a lot and there may come a time when a cable this long may come in handy.

I am awarding this item 5 stars for price and quality - there's nothing to complain. However, I suggest that you look around before you place the order because you just might have one of these already as they tend to ship with many electronic gadgets these days.

Notes:

Anyone in the market for a USB cable should be very careful because there are at least 6 kinds of USB connectors. If you are buying a cable that connects 'something' to your computer or laptop, the computer end of the cable will always be a USB-A or 'Type A' connector. At the other end, you may have a USB-B/Type B - a nearly square shaped connector used mostly to deliver power to a device but this is rare. Most likely, you will have a Mini-B or a Micro-B. The difference between the 2 is that the Micro-B is half as thick while the width is the same - Mini-B is 3x7mm while Micro-B is 1.5x7mm.

If your device (phone, PDA, camera) is a 'new' one and it's using USB, chances are that they will need a Micro-B connector because the industry seems to be adopting the 'Micro' form factor as its standard.

I bought this for my Garmin nuvi 200 GPS. This is the right cable. It fits the back and plugs into computers to download new voices and vehicles. It works well and saves a bundle on "brand name" usb cables. I highly recommend it.

I bought this cable for an external hard drive, when i discovered the cable is a USB 1.1 cable and not USB 2.0 (I needed 2.0). Please be advised before purchasing one of these that they are USB 1.1 and NOT USB 2.0. Don't make the same mistake that i made (DON'T BUY IF YOU NEED THE CABLE TO BE USB2.0).

These cables are wonderful and for the price, I could not beat it. They give great flexibility and we use them for our GPS devices. Not a single problem!

They say that a picture is worth one thousand words, but not in this case! I did look mostly at the photo expecting a Gold Plated Protected Layer on the cable, because the gold layer stops corrosion on the outside of the cable housing if exposed to everyday elements in and around the house or while traveling with it. Unfortunately it does not state that it is Gold Plated on the description of the cable so I think it’s misrepresented by showing the Gold Plated photo, because I can get this same cable a lot cheaper if I was not mostly looking at the photo. I think the company should change the photo to show you what you are actually purchasing! If I was suppose to get the Gold Plated one then I was really ripped off!

I needed a cable for my new WD Elements portable HD longer than the 6 inch one supplied with the drive. After recovering from a heart attack from seeing what my local Staples wanted for a 6 ft cable ($21!!!) I decided to look elsewhere. I found these for a cent each + 2.98 each shipping. I figured for less than 3 bucks each it was worth the "risk," so I ordered three.

The arrived today and I have to say I am pleased. They look like they are well made. There is no indication of where they are made, but I would bet it's not USA for this price.

At first I thought they wouldn't work for the drive when I plugged it into a connection on my monitor-based hub. The light on the drive came on and flickered on and off, but was not recognized by the computer. Then I switched the cable to a connection on the computer and it powered up and was recognized by the computer, so I guess there is just enough power loss in the former setup. (This would be a problem with any cable of this length.)

So if you need an extension cable, you can't beat this deal. They shipped promptly from a third-party supplier and came in less than a week.
