You may not need a 32ft extension for USB hub... but it is convenient to have one on hand.... just in case. A majority of the time I use it as a standard 4 Port USB hub, but if you ever need the additional cable you have it. When would it be convenient to have a 32ft extension on a USB hub? If you ever need to run it between rooms... or possibly for home media and connecting devices to a media center (keyboards, cameras, external hard drives and such).


- The cable does not use an AC adapter so all power must be provided by the Laptop or connection point. The side of the hub does have an input and appears to accept external power (although I did not try it and a power adapter is not included)

- Using my MacBook Pro I was able to charge my iPhone - but that is due to the power of my MacBook's USB Port.... it will depend on the computer, and even if does power have the power you may not want to use it as a long term option

- The cable works well with a variety of devices... USB jump drives, external hard drives, keyboards, and mice

- Plug and play ready - I did not need any external drives for operation with my MacBook Pro

Final verdict - The Sabrent 4 port USB 2.0 32ft Active Extension is an interesting option for anyone who needs a USB hub. You may not need all 32 ft of length, but it certainly is handy to have it just in case.

My only PC is a small laptop, and I know from experience that the USB ports don't provide enough power for some peripherals. For those I use an AC-powered multi-port hub. But for low-power devices like USB drives, a mouse, and memory card readers, I've been using an unpowered 4-port USB 3.0 hub. I tried using the Sabrent 4-port USB 2.0 hub, and it worked fine for the low-power devices. Most of the time, I use a wireless network printer, but occasionally I need to use my wife's older non-networked laser printer. Instead of having to physically move it to my computer table, I took advantage of the Sabrent's 32-foot cable length, and didn't have to move the printer.

The Sabrent hub appears to be built for heavy use. The cable itself is about 5mm thick, but it's more flexible than I would have guessed. It's an unusual design for a multi-port hub, but it worked very well for me. If you have a situation where a USB device must be located at some distance from your computer, the Sabrent hub definitely deserves a look.

This is a 32 foot USB extension cord for USB devices! Plug and play, no software or driver needed. I use a webcam on my computer to video chat with my family overseas all the time. The webcam does not have WiFi capabilities so I am tethered to the one spot in my room. Now I able to it out on the deck and show them the beautiful views from our hillside. Besides using it to video chat with family, this is a cheaper way to set up your own video/security surveillance without spending thousands on video cameras and wiring cables to a video recorder. Of course there are probably a ton of other uses like using it to place your printer or external hard drive in another room, but I wanted it to use with my webcam.

The cable is flexible and well constructed. You can even connect another one for up to 75 feet! The difference between Active and Passive USB is that Passive USB are not meant to exceed lengths of 16 feet and using passive cables for the purpose of extension can result in signal errors. Active USB buffers all downstream and upstream data traffic. High speed, full-speed and low-speed devices will function equally. So when in doubt, you should just always get Active USB. Even with that being said, some power-intense USB devices may require a AC-Powered USB Hubs - like an iPad or other 2.1A tablets.

Overall terrific way to extend 2.0 USB devices at an affordable price. Great quality product that offers superior customer service.

Disclosure: I received a sample unit in exchange for an honest unbiased review.

This is a specialized take on a pretty conventional product: a 2.0 USB hub. Unlike most hubs, however, this allows you to attach a device 30+ feet away from the PC.

It looks much like a conventional USB hub, except for the fact that the cable that plugs into the PC is 32 feet long. The construction quality is quite good - the cable ends are solid and well-made; the connectors appear sturdy; and the cable itself coils nicely even though it is pretty thick.

The one area that could be improved is the device attachment end. There are 4 female USB ports in an "octopus" configuration (e.g., the ends are splayed out). I would have liked to have more flexibility in the connection end with more separation between the connectors.

But that nitpick aside, I've not had any problems with functionality. I'm using it for low-powered USB devices and have had no problems with signal/power strength. I would (and as recommended by the manufacturer) use a powered connection for more power-hungry devices, such as an external drive.

I use this to I can connect 4 wired xbox controllers to my computer sitting across the room so I can use it with Steam bigTV mode. Works perfect, no problems so far. No a/c adapter required, but there is an input in case it's needed. no a/c adapter included!!

I purchased this for a specific purpose. I wanted to be able to use my mechanical keyboard and gaming mouse in front of my Television, without having to move my computer every time I want to use the Television as my monitor.

This product ended up working very well. The cord has like a plastic,pvc feeling and I was a little worried initially about quality issues, but I have yet to run into any problems with the cord (granted I don't move it around much except for at the hub end).

I found that it is charging my Galaxy S5, so now I my mechanical keyboard, mouse, and galaxy charging cord on a little slab of cedar that I can move around in front of the television.

I also didn't have any problems reading a USB flash drive or a card reader, which was an added benefit for myself.

I would recommend this product for the price.

Works as-advertized.

The cable feels high-quality, it's got a nice glossy coating and the wire is bendable enough to run easily. The only thing I noticed was that it takes a while for my mouse(MX518) to be recognized when initially plugged into any of the ports. My keyboard(Saitek-II) recognizes very quickly. It all works, just seemed unusual that the recognition time was a) different between 2 USB devices) and b) the mouse took so long. Probably a quirk.

Comes in a blister pack, easily openable with scissors - spooled in a loop with two twist-ties.

I have this connected to my HTPC and ran around the perimeter of the livingroom, under the couch and stored between two cushions. I use it to keep a couple Xbox 360 controllers connected to the HTPC as well as a Logitech wireless adapter for the K400 wireless keyboard. I sometimes use it to charge my phone, but I hate that it prompts Windows every time I connect a new device which normally disrupts the full screen KODI software. Not the hardware's fault though.

I was skeptical because 32 feet is a LONG ways to boost USB out to, I purchased the "Sabrent 5V 4A 100V-240V to DC Power Adapter" to go with it because I would not want the power draw to be the responsibility of my machine over that long cable. It works really quite perfectly, I have a cheap webcam and a large flash drive and one other device hooked up and its been going for several days now no issues. Cable seems to be good quality.

I wanted this to run an external video adapter. It wouldn't work for that. I think the run is too long.

The only cord that I have found that will run 1 this distance has an dedicated AC adapter.

It does run a keyboard, mouse & a couple of led lights, so I think it was money well spent.
