This review is from: C2G / Cables To Go 28107 USB 2.0 A Male to One Mini-B Male Y-Cable (6 Feet, Black) (Personal Computers)
I have a Verbatim 160GB portable hard drive that would not power up. The unit kept flashing, but would not initialize. After researching I found that my older desktop PC was not providing enough power to the drive through only one USB connection. This particular type of cable was suggested as a solution to the problem. Some reviewers have said that the cable did not work properly, but in my application the hard drive powered up and performed flawlessly. A very easy, inexpensive fix for a vexing problem!

this is not an actual user, but a hired shill for either this company or verbatim. Note the "other reviewers have said that the cable did not work properly..." rebuttal. Many reviews have said its good, but don't fall prey to false information.

It's a One-Hit Wonder, but how can you be certain it's a hired shill?
