Product Description

Size: 3 Meter/9.8 Feet

Compliant to USB 3.0 SuperSpeed specifications; extend your USB 3.0 connection! Just plug-and-play for hard drive enclosures, printers, modems, cameras, and other SuperSpeed USB peripherals. This cable provides a transfer rate of up to 4.8 Gbps when connected with a USB 3.0 compliant host and device. Foil and braid shielding reduces EMI/RFI interference and twisted pair contruction helps reduce crosstalk thus ensuring SuperSpeed, error-free data transfer. Protective overmolded connector is color-coded blue to highlight USB 3.0 connectivity compatibility. Please Note: USB 3.0 (4.8 Gbps) provides TEN TIMES the capability of USB 2.0 (480 Mbps); it also provides up to 900 mA power instead of the 500 mA available with USB 2.0. Type A connections are backwards compatible to USB 2.0 and even USB 1.1. Finally, while USB 2.0 cables will work with USB 3.0 devices (at the lower USB 2.0 transmission speed and power), you won't enjoy the SuperSpeed of USB 3.0 without connecting with USB 3.0 cables! PC and Mac compatible. USB 3.0 technology provides 4.8 Gbps. Backwards compliant with high speed USB 2.0 devices (480 Mbps) as well as USB 1.1. Great for applications requiring SuperSpeed data bandwidth. In order to receive the benefits of the USB 3.0 specification, the source and device must be USB 3.0 compliant. Warranty: Lifetime

Five stars ("I love it") is reserved for unusually great products, such as one that goes beyond its intended purpose.

They feel like they are a lot higher quality with nice flex to them.

The wire is a bit stiff in that I'm connecting it from a Local server to my laptop and when I move my laptop, sometimes even just a little, it loses connection.

Size Name: 2 Meter/6.5 Feet Verified Purchase
After purchasing two different 6-foot USB 3.0 cables to replace the short factory cable that came with my StarTech external hard drive enclosure, I was ready to give up! Each of the first two cables (the StarTech USB3SAB6BK and the Uspeed AK-68UNAMBM-G) would not allow the drive to be recognized; re-installing the original shorter cable, the unit was instantly recognized. Replacements sent from the vendor had the same result. I tried every install combination I could think of to get these cables to work properly; they did function as a USB 2.0 connection, but what good did that do for me? I am convinced that the manufacturer's name on the Amazon listing does not necessarily mean that it originates from that source; if it did, why would a "StarTech" cable not work seamlessly with a StarTech enclosure? Duh!?! Although in each case the full purchase price was refunded through Amazon, it was very frustrating to have what seemed a simple upgrade turn into an exercise in returning goods. As a last effort to make it happen, I ordered the Cables-to-Go 54174 cable. The cable arrived very quickly, and as soon as the connection was made, the drive was recognized; shock and amazement, and finally, great relief! Good quality, durable cable; sure to last a long time. Perfect, perfect, perfect!

Received this cable yesterday from Amazon and tested its performance on a USB 3 port on my Dell XPS desktop. It gave me sustained transfer rates between 90 and 100 MB per second for large files (greater than 10 GB). This is to an external hard drive consisting of a Western Digital Caviar Green disk in a Vantec USB 3 enclosure. It may even be faster with a Caviar Black WD drive. It is just a touch slower than the transfer rates I can achieve with external eSata drives - I was impressed. It is more than 10 times faster than the fastest transfer rate I have seen with the best USB 2 external drives, and about 30 times the speed of my best external USB 2 thumb size flash drive.

The cable has a solid feel to it. It is fairly thick, probably due to good shielding, that you have to have at these high transfer speeds.

Note that it has a "A type male to B type male" connector style. Not all external USB 3 devices have the B-type female connector. The Vantec enclosure does have it. Just make sure your external device needs the B-type connector.

This is a good buy at the price.

I have always thought most highly of the Cables to Go brand. They are always very high quality, at a reasonable price. Cables to Go is my "go to" brand. I have never had a failure or a problem of any kind. For some reason, I seen to have some trouble finding the Cables to Go brand on Amazon, so I often go to the Cables to Go website to get the correct item numbers, and read any helpful technical literature about fine differences in the cables, but I always buy from Amazon to get a better price. I no longer buy direct. BTW, I highly suggest going from USB 2 to USB 3 for nearly all applications, as it is 10 times faster, and you don't have the problems that you have with SATA cables, which don't like to be over 3 feet long without causing transfer problems. SATA connections suck, once you have tried USB 3. You can have a 10 foot USB 3 cable hooked up to a Docking Station that is far away, that is safe and protected.

I miss some of the colored cables and lighted cables that they used to carry in more variety, which makes it easy to tell one cable from another, which is helpful in some situations.

Size Name: 3 Meter/9.8 Feet Verified Purchase
I ordered this cable at the same time as I ordered a StarTech.com 4 Port SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Hub - Black (ST4300USB3). I suspected, correctly, that the hub's cable would not be long enough for my purposes. Indeed, it was only 3 feet long.

What I did not suspect was that the cable included with the hub would fail on the second day! Fortunately, this 3 meter cable seems to be much better quality, not to mention that it is long enough to reach the distance I need it to go.

If this cable has any problems in the future, I WILL update this review. If you don't see an update, assume it is still going strong.

Why only four stars? Five stars ("I love it") is reserved for unusually great products, such as one that goes beyond its intended purpose. This one simply does its job very well so "I like it" for four stars.

I would rate these cables at least as good as Belkin. I like them better. I wish the USB 3.0 cables came in more colors. They will in the future I bet.

This is what I was looking for. I needed a longer cable to get my new 3.0 hub away from my PC and closer to where the kids charge their stuff. This did the trick and is well built. Thanks.

Cable works as designed. Not much else to say. Seems robust enough. Price is better than trying to buy locally.
