Product Description

Size: 1 Meter/3.3 Feet

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 construction 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!

If you have looked for a usb3 A-to-MicroB cable, you know its slim pickins. This connector only seems to be used for external enclosures for 2.5" drives.

Cable itself seems to be high quality, solid connections, works like a champ. could be cheaper, but i cant take a star off for something that isnt available anywhere for less money (that actually works)

verdict: buy this if you need it.

I have been using this cable with a USB 3.0 external HDD for several months now, and it has been flawless. I get very good transfer speed (well above USB 2.0), and have never encountered any problems or quirks at all. The cable seats firmly at both ends of the connection.

In trying to decide between this product and another similar cable (the Tripp 6-foot cable, also sold by Amazon), I relied on a review ("You Get What You Pay for") in selecting this product, even though this 6.5 foot cable cost 77% more than the Tripp 6-foot cable. To test it, I transferred a 4.177 gigabyte file from my internal hard drive over this cable to a USB 3.0 external hard drive (WD, My Passport) and it took 115 seconds, 2.17 times longer than when using the 18" cable that came with the external drive (53 seconds). I did this test 3 times with similar results. In effect, the speed I was getting for this cable was only 20% faster than what I was getting for my USB 2.0 external drive using its 6-foot USB 2.0 cable. I returned this cable because I needed a USB 3.0 cable that could transfer at expected speeds -- about double those of USB 2.0 devices, to justify the additional cost.
After returning this cable, I purchased the less expensive Tripp 6-foot USB 3.0 cable from Amazon, and it arrived today. The new, less expensive, cable works perfectly, giving me the about the same speed (50-55 seconds and repeating the test 3 times) as I had using the 18" cable that was provided with the USB 3.0 WD My Passport external drive. Paying more may not only not guarantee quality. It may not even work while the less expensive alternative works perfectly, as it did in my case.

Be careful when ordering these cables. I was expecting black, C2G 54177 cables - just like what was pictured. Instead, I was shipped blue, generic cables instead. Beware! Vendor was not being honest with the product descriptions. Confirm with the vendor before ordering.

I really thought this cable would be a really good investment. Sadly, it's only lasted a month and a half before the Micro B portion of the cable became very "wiggly." It's now to the point where if I move the hard drive at all, it disconnects. I tested my hard drive and I've narrowed it down to the extremely "wiggly" Micro B end. So, is it a fluke or is it just poor craftsmanship, I don't really know. I'm not all that rough on my hard drive, since I don't feel like losing all of my data.

My connection from my external hard drive and my computer kept going on and off with this cable. I would be copying files to the hard drive and the hard drive would suddenly not be recognized. I tried this with another cable, and had no such problem.

I purchased the 3 meter cable.
It is transferring data at about three times faster than a USB2 cable.

I tested this on two different computers, (using only the USB3 Ports) with two different USB3 drives. A Seagate 3TB Expansion USB3, and a Western Digital 1TB passport USB3.
I tested using 2 different USB2 cables, and used 3 different USB3 cables to get a base benchmark.
Both USB2 data rates were about the same, and all of the USB3 data rates were consistently about three times faster than the USB2 cables.

The cable fits snug, not loose.
It's a little expensive, (as cables go) but it works well.
When I need a cable to work, I don't mind paying a little extra for it to properly work.

I bought several of these cables for a couple of Seagate Backup Plus USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drives (STBU1000100). Currently, there are not many USB 3.0 cables on the market and these were the only ones I could find that had a decent price, cable color and length I was looking for. So far they are working well. They are thick cables and seem to make a good connect to my external drives, although the USB 3.0 Micro-B plug end does wiggle a little bit when connected.

Cable Spec: 6.5 ft long standard "USB 3.0" cable with a USB 3.0 Micro-B plug on one end (connects to drive) and a USB 3.0 Standard-A plug on the other (connects to computer). This is the new standard for USB 3.0.
