So, I was in a desperate need of a 3.0 "Female/Male" USB extension. Reason is I needed to A) Power my device and B) Transfer data at the 3.0 speed, which is (much faster than the 2.0) so having said that, this cable delivered A & B. I was really happy with the price as well, I mean wow I got it for less than $6, and believe me $6 in the 2014 means like $1 few years ago. So, I am happily satisfied and confident with "Cable Matters" products. They seem legit for its performance and capability to deliver.

Keep in mind, the 10 feet one is equivalent to 3 meters for those who measure things in "meters" which kinda short. But, its the only approved length to a 3.0 USB extension. So be careful trying to buy longer as it may cause issues. Last note, you can use this for printers & Fax, Phone, Smart Tablet or any USB extension... Hope you find this review helpful, if so hit the "useful" button as it will show me that someone found my reviews helpful.

Cheers...

Finding the right USB 3.0 cables can be an adventure, unless you know what you're looking for, and there is a difference.

The Cable Matters 2 Pack, SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Type A Male to Female Extension Cable in Blue 3 Feet meet the standard for USB 3.0 easily. Also known as SuperSpeed USB, they have a maximum bandwidth rate of 5 Gbps (gigabits per second). That translates to speeds that are up to ten times faster than USB 2.0, also known as High-Speed USB.

Unlike previous criteria, the USB 3.0 standard does not directly specify a maximum cable length, requiring only that all cables meet an electrical specification: for copper cabling with AWG 26 wires the maximum practical length is 3 meters (9.8 ft). These obviously fall within that length. However, you can extend the length by using USB 3.0 hubs or active repeater cables.

I tested these cables as direct connections on a PC that is equipped with USB 3.0 ports and also with my Plugable 7 Port USB 3.0 Hub, which has a 4A power adapter, and the speeds were at the level to which I was accustomed. Note that since USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports may coexist on the same machine and look similar, the USB 3.0 connector has a blue insert, as can be seen in the product images here.

Even if your computer has USB 2.0 ports, these cables are backward compatible with the older USB 2.0 standard. I also tested them with my MacBook Pro, which has USB 2.0 ports, and the data transfer was as expected with the slower 480 Mbit/s top speed of USB 2.0.

UPDATE: Cable Matters has reached out to me based upon this review and have replaced the defective cable. All five are now working well. Kudos to Cable Matters.
---
I ordered 5 of these cables, two in 6' length and 3 in 3' lengths. The process involved two different orders with the two 6' cables being delivered first. I used one of the 6' lengths extensively with my 4TB Seagate Backup Plus USB 3.0 external hard drive without a single hiccup.

When the order of three 3' cables arrived I replaced the 6' cable with one of the 3' cables. However, almost immediately I began to experience spontaneous dismounts of my Backup Plus. Extensive testing over a several day period revealed that of the 5 cables I ordered 4 provided flawless operation but one of the 3' cables was 'defective' in that within 1-3 minutes of starting a backup the disk would be unmounted and the backup aborted in a manner that could cause data corruption in the drive.

I guess it pays to always keep in mind that one of the things sacrificed for lower price is quality control. Thus the 3-star rating.

I purchased these USB 3.0 cables to extend my USB 2.0 wireless Headset. I Purchased 2 cables (I always get an extra).
When connected it didn't work (at first). I 'jiggled' the connections but no go. I tried the second cable and all worked fine. I went back to the first cable and plugged it in and out of the computer's USB 2.0 port about six times and tried it and all worked fine. I purchase 3.0 extenders even when 2.0 would work for 'future' uses.

I'm assuming the one cable had a bit of corrosion that needed cleaned off and as I had been using the computer port with no problems earlier it had to be the new cable. This isn't anything new to me and I know better but in my rush I was ready to toss a good cable in the trash and just go with the second one.

I've plugged this in and out several times and there is no problem.

Bottom line is, who knows how long these (or other) cables have been sitting around and in what kind of an environment. One should be ready to scrub or clean USB and probably other cables from time to time and before first time use and don't be a hot head like me...

I am happy with BOTH of these and would purchase more if necessary.

I hope my review was of help to you.
