Product Description

Size: 3 feet

Product Description

Tripp Lites 3ft, USB-A to Micro-B SuperSpeed USB 3.0 cable brings significant performance enhancements to the ubiquitous USB standard, while remaining compatible with the billions of USB enabled devices currently deployed in the market. SuperSpeed USB will deliver 10x the data transfer rate of Hi-Speed USB, up to 5Gbps, as well as improved power efficiency. USB 3.0 utilizes a bi-directional data interface rather than USB 2.0's half-duplex arrangement, where data can only flow in one direction at a time, giving a ten-fold increase in theoretical bandwidth. Tripp Lite Lifetime Warranty.

Customer Reviews

These are good well made cables.

This cable works on my USB 2.0 ports but not my USB 3.0 ports, at least with my external hard drive.

I purchased two of these cables to replace the cables that came with WD external drives, of which I was having problems with one of them. I thought it was possibly the cables that came with the drives themselves, so these were ordered as replacements. It turned out that it was the connector on one of the WD drives itself--not the stock cables.

As far as these cables go, they are well built, and seemed to have good USB 3.0 transfer performance. However, the reason for a loss of a star, is that the width of the "A" connector is very thick--so much so, that you can't use two of them together in side-by-side ports. Comparing the thickness of these "A" connectors to the ones that came with the drives (also USB 3.0), there is a significant difference (1 - 2 mm), which is a lot for something that should be able to sit in USB ports next to each other. The stock cables that came with the drives fit nicely.

If you are only going to use one cable in one port with nothing next to it, these cables should be fine. But if you have two ports next to each other, they may not both be able to fit.

I bought this cable for one reason.

I have a usb 3.0 Western Digital external hard drive and I was using their short cable that was provided. I wanted to extend the connection to the back of the tower where my USB 3.0 PCIe card is so I gave this cable a try. After plugging it in and transferring files, I noticed it was transferring at usb 2.0 speeds. I verified this both ways by transferring the same files to another HD of mine that is usb 2.0. The other way I verified it was by plugging in the short usb 3.0 cable that came with my WD hard drive and saw it transferring at usb 3.0 speeds.

Very, very disappointed.

I purchased this cable because the portable hard drives that are USB 3.0 come with VERY short cables, and most of the USB 3.0 ports on modern desktops are in the back, making for an under-desk adventure each connect/disconnect. I saw another review on here about low transfer speeds, which doesn't apply to the cable and has everything to do with their computer and the type of media they were transferring and from what to what.

The cable is plenty long for my purposes, and has a thickness to it that speaks for its quality. The only con I can think of is that the cable is blue and there are no other color options to have the cable be inconspicuous, although for some this may be a good thing so there's no confusion as to which cable is which.

Love this cable overall, and will probably order another to keep at home so the one in the office can stay there.

I recently bought a Buffalo Technology MiniStation Cobalt 640GB SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive and it came with a foot-long cable that is fine for stuffing in my bag along with the drive, but I needed a longer cable for use at home with my desktop computer. This Tripp-Lite does the job. It's well-made and it fits well into the hard drive. It's also blue, which distinguishes it from all the other black cables I have. Recommended.

I needed a longer USB 3.0 A Male to Micro B Male Cable to connect my external hard drive. This cable seems reasonably priced and the review was okay. I didn't listen to Krisna Sin's review, and well.... damn she's right.

I tested and tested, it does not transfer even close to the 3.0 speed. So the review by Krisna Sin is correct.

I paid $10.56 for it. Although, it's the cheapest A Male to Micro B Male Cable you won't get the speed you're looking for. If you're happy paying lower price and doesn't care about transfer speed. Then this product is great.

However, if you want a real USB 3.0 A Male to Micro B Male Cable get one here >>
Cables To Go 54177 USB 3.0 A Male to Micro B Male Cable (2 Meter/6.5 Feet, Black) ... but it cost more.

As I said if you just need the connection and don't care about speed. Highly Recommended.

I'm giving it 1 Star since this product doesn't do what it said it would.

Ok, first off, I usually only review items that I love and/or am excited about (not here on Amazon, other places though). However, I felt I had to say something about this cable, so others out there can get an idea of what they are buying.

I recently built a computer to use as an HTPC and a virtual machine server, and unlike my other computer, the motherboard in this one has USB3 ports. I have a Western Digital My Book 3TB USB2.0/3.0 external hard drive that I use to store my photos and some of my movies on (that is until I have my NAS solution in place). Now, I was finally able to use the drive at 3.0 speeds. The problem is I keep the hard drive on a rack that is to the left of my desk, and the HTPC is on the right side of the desk, and unfortunately, there is no safe or stable place for the drive on that side. So, I needed a longer cable, and I came across this cable here at Amazon.

Well, when I got the cable, I plugged it into the drive, then in the back of the computer, the drive powered itself on, and that was it. The computer did not detect the drive (although the drive received a wake signal by being plugged into the computer, obviously the correct voltage was going through the cable). I spent about an hour messing with the cable, computer, and drive, and no matter what I did, I could not get it recognized by the computer (which is running Win7 Pro 64, and the drivers were already installed). So, I eventually plugged it into one of the USB 2.0 ports, and voila, the drive was recognized, and I was able to browse it. I later tried the combo cable that came with the WD drive in both 3.0 ports (to make sure they worked), and it worked perfectly.

So, what I've found out is that this cable does not work when plugged into a 3.
