Putting up with the demands of 30 careless, busy, impatient teenagers requires rugged durability, and I'm not just talking about the teacher. The price was right, so for my yearbook class, I bought six of these beauties to upload photos from our Canon Rebel DSLRs. They work great. Not so with the first six I bought: Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera USB Cable 3' USB 2.0 A To Mini B - (5 Pin) - Replacement by General Brand. I used to think a cable was a cable, but these are actually putting up with the demands of my yearbook staff quite well. They are thick and strong and work fast and all six have been that way since I opened the bag and threw them at my staffers. Now if I can just keep them from "walking off" or getting lost.
My daughter recieved this camera for Christmas and we were pretty annoyed to find that it didnt come with a USB cord so she could upload her photos. I have a million cords at home and sure enough, none of them fit it. This cord shipped super fast and works perfect. It didn't come with anything...not even a piece of paper. Just came in a clear bag....but it works! That's all that matters. Great price.
