I bought it so that I could extend both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 cables. I.E., you can plug this cable into a USB 2.0 port on a computer and attach a USB 2.0 device or cable to the other end and it will work fine.
To be clear: you can attach a USB 2.0 phone cable to this extension cord, plug it into a USB 2.0 port on your PC and you will be able to both charge your phone and transfer data to and from it (at USB 2.0 speeds).
You can, of course, also plug this cable into a USB 3.0 port on a computer and plug a USB 3.0 device or cable into the other end and it will work fine.
Posting this info since some other reviewers were questioning this. The USB 3.0 standard is designed to be backwards compatible with USB 2.0 (and even USB 1.1).
The USB 3.0 connector is designed so that the extra pins needed for USB 3.0 are recessed, and they won't be used if the cable is plugged into a USB 2.0 port.
USB 3.0 is a superset of USB 2.0, so why not purchase an extension cable that will serve both types of devices and ports?
At the moment, I haven't received the JBOD enclosure, but I tested this cable with an Intel X25-V 40GB SSD in a MSI Coolmax HD-250TN-U3 USB 3 enclosure using a PCIe x1 Renesas 2-Port (EVGA EU30) card and saw HD Tune 2.55 return the following stats for a 4MB Block Size:
Min: 134.6 MB/sec
Max: 149.2 MB/sec
Average 144.5 MB/sec
Access Time: 0.1 ms
Burst Rate: 73.6 MB/sec
This was with the SSD having 12.2 GB free of 37.2 GB.
When the SSD/enclosure was attached directly to the EU30 without using the extension cable, I saw the following results:
Min: 138.0 MB/sec
Max: 149.4 MB/sec
Average 144.2 MB/sec
Access Time: 0.1 ms
Burst Rate: 74.5 MB/sec
My conclusion: No real speed loss when using the extension cable.
Other observations: The cable is nice and thick; the male/female ends feel strong and unlikely to break even with thousands of insertions/removal
UPDATE: When I used the extension cable with the NST-640SU3-BK enclosure, the disks would appear and disappear in Windows. Removing the cable fixed the issue.
The not so good: Slower charging rate. I tried to use this cable to charge a smartphone and notice it was charging much slower. I hooked up my usb charging device (LeGioN meter) and was able to see that it was only pulling .35 amps. If I removed that cable from the equation my charging rate went to .45 amps. I moved the cable from directly in front of the meter to directly behind it with no change so it's definitely the cable. .10 amps may not be that big of a deal but I wanted to let others know that if you use it for charging, it will be slightly slower.
I can add pictures of the charging rates later if needed.
So when the opportunity arose to get a 3.0 cable, and Amazon Basics carried it, wow. Very happy camper. Especially, because as many know, the WD Passport drives have finicky cables that Windows 7 and XP, sometimes refuse to recognize. Had that very problem, this morning. Unhooked the replacement cable I had been using, and instead hooked in this baby and then reattached the original WD Passport (stinky, scorpion-like) cable, and BINGO! Windows 7 recognized it!
Thank you, Amazon!
On a hunch, I got a free utility called TeraCopy that has an option to run a CRC check on the source and destination to ensure a perfect copy, and saw failures over and over again. When I plugged the hub directly into the PC instead of through this cable, the problems went away. When I put this cable in the middle, they reappeared.
What this means is that if you are moving files over this cable, **you can irrevocably lose them to corruption.**
Like I said, it may just be a bad one-off, but I recommend using a utility like TeraCopy to make sure you aren't experiencing the same thing.
+ Doesn't interfere with being connected to my USB hub.
+ Thick cord, not flimsy.
- None, does everything I need it to.
