These cables are cheap to buy and high quality what more can you ask.
IPPete
Overall excellent quality - feels solid and well made with soft, flexible insulation and gold plated terminals (not that that really does anything).
Serguei
I'll definitely buy more as needed, and would consider other products featuring the AmazonBasics brand name.

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) - if you are to use it with a phone or some other small and 'new' gadget, you may need a 'Micro-B' cable instead.

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.

While USB cables are clearly a commodity item these days, AmazonBasics does have a couple of advantages over the competition.

- EASY RETURN - I know because I had to return quite a few items for various reasons. Amazon makes it very easy and, if you are returning the item because it came defective or damaged Amazon pays for shipping.

- WARRANTY - these wires come with a 1-year warranty (talking about future-proofing). If a cable performs for one year, the odds that it would stop working after that are pretty close to zero. It's possible that the other vendors back their inexpensive cables too (I never checked) but I am highly confident that Amazon will be around to honor its warranty and I'm not so sure about vendors I know less.

- QUALITY ASSURANCE - I've never had any problems with 'cheap' USB or HDMI cables but it may be reassuring to have Amazon's name on a wire. My assumption is that Amazon did insist on some quality checks before they stamped their logo on the product.

The debut of Amazon Essentials could not have been better timed for me. I have three portable hard drives (the kind that are powered solely through usb cables) and all of my existing cables were missing. Somehow over the summer they got thrown away or misplaced, so getting to my files on these portable hard drives was impossible. Even more frustrating was the fact that on my MacBook Pro from 2007, there's only one powered hi-speed USB port. The other one isn't hi-speed. So I had a USB hub that I couldn't use either.

Anyway, along comes Amazon Essentials with these amazingly cheap USB cables. I was cautious about buying USB cables from any place else because I could have just gotten normal USB cables, not ones that I could use to power my external portable hard drives and my USB Hub.
As soon as I saw these from Amazon though, my problems were solved. They're 6 feet/1.8m long, which is long enough to suffice for almost any application. The cords have gold-plated connectors - I'm not sure if that makes them USB cords from the high heavens, but it sure does make them look a lot nicer than the other ones I have lying about. And these cords are dirt cheap - Less than $3.75 for 6 feet... try getting something like that at a normal electronics store.

To close off my review, I'd like to say how happy I am with my purchase, and that I'll definitely be buying my future USB cables through Amazon Essentials!

Bought this controller for my PS3 controller and it works like a charm, even when plugging into my PC for use with PC games. Little pricier than what you can get but the quality is very nice and more than worth the price.

Good quality USB 2.0 cable direct from Amazon. I usually just buy cheap digital cables. I hate companies that charges you an arm and a leg. But sometimes, you have no idea about the quality and construction of the product that you will get. At least, you know, Amazon put their name on it.

Solid construction. Amazon label is a nice touch. Gold tipped. Very reasonably priced+++. It just works.

I love the eco-friendly, no frustration packaging too.

I have two external portable WD hard drives, these came with a short (a few inches) USB cable which I promptly lost... This cable worked as a great replacement.

Size Name: 6 Feet / 1.8 Meters Verified Purchase
This cable has all five star reviews (as of the time I am writing this review) because it is well made, has gold plated tips, appears durable, and most important works perfectly. I use this to charge my Slacker G2 portable player via a USB port on my PC.

Note: My BlackBerry Tour has a "micro USB" port rather than a "mini USB" port like my Slacker G2, so I need to use a different cable to connect it to my PC. I mention this because as another review has noted, this cable does not work on all gadgets that have a "small" USB port. Therefore be sure of what kind of port you are connecting to before you order this.

Update March 31, 2010: If you don't need a 6ft cable and can get by with just 1ft, consider the USB 2.O Shorty cable, which is sold on Amazon through Cyberguys or you can order directly from them. It works great (see my review) where a shorter length will do.
