I have used this to connect a standard USB keyboard and a mouse. It also worked to transfer JPG pictures from my Canon Rebel XT and Canon SD700 into the Gallery app. It did not recognize or transfer RAW pictures, and I don't believe there is currently an app that will display them anyway.
I plugged the adapter to my 5 y/o camera and it worked perfectly. Tried it on my wife's few month old camera and it works. I read in some forums that you have to make sure that if you get a non-Motorola adapter it has to be a certain type (it was a while ago when I read the forums so I can't remember the terminology used). Basically the Motorola adapter has an extra pin in it that makes the Xoom a "host" device thus allowing it to download pics directly from your camera. This was one of the main reasons why I bought the Xoom, to eliminate the need to bring a much bigger, heavier laptop with me when ever the family goes on vacation. I've got most of the 32 gigs of internal memory available so I won't be running out of that on a single vacation (if I do, I have about 17 more gigs available on the SD card). It's nice too because I can carry the Xoom with me during an outing and download pics on-the-fly if I have to (there have been a couple of times my wife filled up her 16 gig card and had to delete pictures to make room for more!...women, they just keep their pics on the card forever).
$20 is a lot for an adapter but there was no searching for the right substitute and then hoping that it would work properly--just plug and play. So I'd recommend this product because it's well built and it's extremely convenient.
Using this connector, my tablet can operate certain low-power devices. I hooked a USB mouse to the XOOM and got a lovely cursor on the screen. I hooked my DSLR and I have access to the SD card that stores images. But, what I'm really after is the Dream Cheeky USB Circus Cannon Kit. With this attached to the XOOM and using an app I build from the Android sample kit, I now have a solution that fires foam missiles at my cats when they climb on the computer equipment next to my desk.
As others have pointed out the location of the micro-USB port on the Xoom is not conducive to leaving the adapter plugged in. I end up removing the folio case and rotating the Xoom 180 degrees when I'm using the USB or HDMI port. I suggest going the Bluetooth route with the Motorola Wireless Keyboard for Motorola ATRIX and XOOM (Motorola Retail Packaging) and the Razer Orochi Elite Mobile Gaming Mouse if you plan to regularly use a keyboard and mouse.
For the DIY crowd there are a bunch of how-to articles out there to create your own imitation of this cable. There's a 6th pin in the micro-USB connector that when grounded tells the Xoom to go from it's normal USB device mode into USB host mode. These DIY products all look very Frankenstein to me so I bought this adapter.
