Bus-Powered Signal Booster and High-Speed Data Transfer

The U042-025 features a bus-powered signal booster (no external power source required) in the middle of the cable that extends the range of the USB signal, allowing you to overcome the typical 5-meter limitation. This allows USB peripheral devices, such as printers, scanners and card readers, to be located up to 25 feet from the host computer with no loss in signal quality.

With its superior design and construction plus data transfer rates of up to 480 Mbps, the U042-025 is ideal for multimedia and other high-end applications that require fast, clear transmission that is free of line noise and other interference. The U042-025 also provides 250mA of power to a connected device. If a device requires more than 250mA of power, it will either need to have its own power supply or be plugged into a powered USB 2.0 hub (Tripp Lite model U222-004-R, sold separately).

Superior Quality with One-Year Warranty and Environmentally Responsible Design

The U042-025 is constructed of top-quality materials. Premium double-shielded cables with tinned copper braid and aluminum Mylar foil feature twisted 28/24 AWG data lines for maximum EMI/RFI protection and signal quality. Molded connectors and integral strain relief guarantee durability and long life. A flexible PVC jacket makes the U042-025 easy to install, even in tight corners and other space-constrained areas.

The U042-025 is manufactured in compliance with strict RoHS specifications, reflecting Tripp Lite’s commitment to environmental responsibility. For peace of mind, it comes backed by a one-year warranty.

This cable did the trick at 36 feet without a hiccup.

Just a footnote: I could not find a 64-bit driver for my Deskjet 5550 printer, but the "5520 series" 64-bit driver worked fine for it.

This was a real letdown. After reading these reviews i decided to purchase with the intentions of using devices like keyboards, mice and gamepads... and the connection is horrible on any of those.
Don't get this if that is your intension. However, this wire seems to do fine for more passive products like an mp3 player or thumb-drive... and maybe a printer.

But for devices that need to give rapid input like any input device it is terrible and unusable.

Example

if you plug a gamepad or keyboard in and press any keys... it will detect about 10% of your keypresses.

I needed to connect my hp deskjet 5550 printer to my apple airpot express so I could print wirelessly, only problem was the printer is 8.00 meters (about 26') away from the airport express, and maximum recommended USB 2.0 cable length is 5.00 meters (about 16'). This cable being 11.00 meters (36') long did the trick. Worth every penny.
Bottom line:
1.- Works at USB 2.0 speeds.
2.- Plug and play connectivity (didn't need any set up other than connecting it).
3.- Sturdy construction.
4.- It even looks great.

I needed an hdmi cable to transfer HD encoded signal from my PVR to my computer. My HD sources are in one room (with PVR) while my computer is in another. No problem in transfer using this product.

Size Name: 36 Feet
I was considering this, for the length, but I'm sure now that it won't work for my purpose, which is to connect - AND POWER - an HD webcam. There are two levels of power for USB 1.0 and 2.0: 100ma and less, and up to 500ma. (All at 4-5Vdc.) I think the rules are that a self powered hub (like the one in the middle of this cable) can only supply 100ma of output power to downstream devices (ie, your device at the end of the cable).
Notice that the people who have happy reviews are mostly using self-powered devices (like printers), and the people who are unhappy have more power-hungry devices (like the guy with the portable hard disk).
This is a clever product and serves a very useful purpose, but Tripplite doesn't provide enough guidance about this limitation.
(And I am looking at a FaceVsion webcam, which unhelpfully reports that it uses "USB 5V" power - yeah, I knew what the voltage had to be: tell me what the current demand is!!)

Excellent cable for extending the distance from a PC that a printer or other device can be located. This device eliminates the need to daisy chain shorter cables together. It has an active repeater installed in the middle (which is about 1"x 1"x 1/2" thick) and is bus powered so no other power supply is needed. Response time for my printer has not changed in comparison to the original 6-foot cable I had been using. Now my printer is in a new location off my desktop freeing up valuable desktop working area. I've just ordered a second cable to allow me to relocate my scanner as well.

In my quest to find a cable that actually works I tried MANY brands in MANY configurations and kept returning them until I found this one. I have not trued this with a PS3 or Xbox yet but I have a plotter and cables that work on those did not work on the plotter. I found out plotters are very particular when it comes to communication. I found out that almost all cables with the exception of triplite are made overseas and have a VERY HIGH failure rate. The folks at the plotter supplier told me this and said they estimate that failure rates are around 70% with plotters. We're talking 70%.....that's huge. I questioned this number and they confirmed their talking about DOA and premature failure. Extension cables that don't function for the application were not taken into account in their estimated failure rate. Out of maybe 20 various brand cables I received in one order maybe 5 were DOA. Even that is high odds. I had at least 3 other cables that just failed after working a month or less. I know for sure one only worked a coupe hours.

When I found out Triplite was made in the USA I jumped on board and it worked flawlessly and continues to work flawlessly. Buy it, spend the extra $ and don't waste your time fooling with other brands.

I'm using this cable to connect my laptop to a high-end Kodak photo printer when I go on location. I had a client request that we put the printer in a separate location so I needed a very long USB cable to be able to pull this off. I was concerned about such a long run. From the second I first hooked this up, it's been perfect, no issues at any point. Tripp Lite makes great stuff.

I connected a 2.5" hard drive to this. It didn't work, but when I added a powered hub to the drive side of the cable it worked great. I didn't measure, but moving a few large files I got the feeling that transfer rrate was comparable to the drive being connected directly to a motherboard port. This product will, I think, work great with anything that doesn't need much USB power. If it had a power injector it would be perfect.
