Customer Reviews

Neutral Comments: The V part of the Y is very long.
A. Huynh
Even the portable drives I use may work fine from a standard cable, it's worth having this Y cable for when other drives need more power.

The iPad will only slow charge with the display off.

Pros: Works like a charm.

Cons: a bit pricey.

I bought this because I needed more power than what was available in one USB port to power my Western Digital MyEssential external hardrive. The harddrive wouldn't work on my Dell laptop through one port.

I bought it to power an external hard drive from my PowerBook laptop, which has two USB ports on either side of the keyboard. The Y pieces are too short to reach.

It seems to be a good quality cable though, at a great price.

Even the portable drives I use may work fine from a standard cable, it's worth having this Y cable for when other drives need more power. I'll never be caught lacking of power for portable drives with my laptop. Good insurance.

I purchased this product in order to use my external hard drive to back up everything on my computer. The hard drive would not work without additional power. This adapter cord worked perfectly. I was easily able to back everything up on my computer without losing power. The cord was exactly what I needed and worked great.

My company needed to use external usb hard drives to get data off of our compact PCI processors, but the usb ports on the processors didn't provide enough power. We even tried 3rd party powered usb hubs, but that didn't help. This Y cable solved the problem, and so far has been 100% reliable. We tried one other brand, too, which only worked part of the time. With these Y cables, our hard drives get recognized in windows every time.

Bought this to use with a Western Digital 250GB USB drive. You will need it with some USB ports, like those on a monitor.

Works great.

My Western Digital portable external hard drive was not being detected by Macbook Pro (late 2011 edition). After researching on the Internet I found out that there might not be enough power being provided by my USB port to power the external HD. This cord has solved the problem perfectly with no issues thus far. I would recommend this product to a friend although I would search for a cheaper shipping option.

Likes:
+ Works as advertised.
+ Length of cord is good for my needs.
+ Quality of construction is good. Inputs have good snug contact with the ports.

Dislike:
- Shipping cost to Canada cost just as much as the cord itself!

This cable works very well for me! My 1TB Seagate FreeAgent Go works well with it. =]

Neutral Comments:
The V part of the Y is very long. About 9 inches per wire.

The cord is bulky (~1cm in diameter). Although, this could just mean extended durability.

I would definitely recommend this wire to anyone looking for some extra juice for their USB devices. But if you're looking for something stylish and sleek. This isn't the product for you. :P
