Now I have low-foot print bootable OS out of plain sight.

Plugs right into a mobo header, and allows me to boot to USB without having to use up an external USB port.

Works great, it would've been nice to see the whole length of the cable sleeved/insulated though.

I simply needed to velcro a USB device inside my mini-itx case. This did the trick quite nicely.

Please note that the part of the cable that attaches to the motherboard does not take up the entire USB header port. It just takes up one half of it, so you could put two of these on one header port. It wasn't obvious by the photo, although I am aware that one USB header allows for two USB connections. I thought it may be worth mentioning anyway.

Perfect if you want to use a USB key as a primary hard drive in a low power PC application. Solid state drives are expensive compared to USB drives, but if you want low power consumption you can use this cheap adapter + a USB key to run a PC using Ubuntu or other Linux distro. I paired this adapter with a OCZ 8GB Rally 2 USB 2.0 Dual Channel Flash Memory, which is one of the faster USB devices available in terms of both read and write speed.

It has been awesome in my new media server. The entire PC (which uses an Atom processor) consumes ~35W when running under steady load.

This is a great little F/F cable for adding internal USB ports to a motherboard's free USB headers. I used a couple of these to mount an Boot OS thumb drive for my NAS box and for adding Bluetooth/WiFi to my LAN Box so all these components were on the inside.

That being said take care on your installation and align the labeled port correctly to your motherboard headers as not to damage and USB devices you plug in. I attached a MoBo USB header pinout image to the product info as a reference to make sure you do it right.

Pretty solid cable so 5 stars for that. It does not fit in the intel NUC however. I run vmware ESXI and I was trying to free up a USB slot by using the internal usb header on the intel NUC. However this guy is a little bit too big. Oh well.

I needed an internal USB header adapter for my Home Theater PC, so that I could hide the flash drive I'm using as the boot drive internally. The flexible cable between the female header port and the female USB port made positioning my drive a cinch, and now I don't have to see a blinking red light from the USB drive sticking out the back of the case. Inexpensive, works as expected, five stars.

I wanted to move the key that my box boots off of to an internal header and this made it incredibly easy. No issues using it on an intel D510MO board with a kingston datatraveler key. As others have said, make sure that you look at the pinout of your motherboard since this plugs in both ways and could allow you to hook it up backwards.
