I bought this cable in a panic to replace the cable I thought I lost (but later found) that came with my USB 3.0 WD Passport hard drive. With that some comparisons…

This StarTech cable is twice as thick as the WD cable, and about 5 inches shorter. Though the specs say 1 feet, it is actually about 13.5 inches measured from end to end. Contrast the WD cable that comes with the passport is about 18.5 inches. So yes, it's shorter than the WD cable. It's light blue, whereas the WD is black.

Speed wise (both are USB 3.0 cables) I can’t say there is any difference, “maybe”, and that’s’ a weak maybe, the StarTech is slightly faster. This is the eyeball test as I’ve not run any comparison benchmarks.

Build quality on this cable appears to be pretty good and I had no fitting issues. Connections were snug and tight.
Wishes… It was a tad thinner; black.

Bottom line: if you need a short replacement, or spare cable, this would do you well. You’ll just have to break it in as it is a bit thick. Recommended.

5 Stars.

After having problems with cheaper cables that had intermittent connections that would disconnect/ unmount the USB 3.0 hard drives causing file corruption this cable was what I needed. The connections are solid and have never dropped out even if the cables were vigorously moved about in the receptacles to ensue reliable connections. The plugs fit snugly into the receptacles so they stay connected even with jostling of adjacent cables on a 7-Port USB 3.0 hub.

The shorter length makes for a clean and uncluttered installation. The cables are thicker and less flexible than those that came with my Seagate drives, but they have been great for desktop use. The original (and longer) cables are set aside for use when traveling.

A life-time warranty comes with the cable, but I can't envision using it. Although more expensive than others, in this case you get what you pay for. This is a brand of cable I'd buy again.

This "Star Tech" brand cable USB 3.0 fits my WD HDD correctly and works properly. I am aware that does not sound remarkable.

I had previously purchased, on Amazon, the "Superspeed" brand USB 3.0 1-foot cables, and they would not fit my WD HDD without using GREAT force to achieve the insertion. I fear that the excessive force required by "Superspeed" will damage the HDD. The "Superspeed" construction was defective.

So I recommend that buyers give preference to the "Star Tech" brand.

I've been using this cable with a Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex for the past 3 months with no problems with the physical connection or data transfer. However, I've been carrying it in a small case with the drive, and the outer jacket is rather stiff, which makes putting it in the case slightly more difficult and stressful for the cable. As of this morning the outer jacket has cracked, exposing the internal shielding. This cable is sturdy and should work fine if you leave it in one place and don't move it around very much, but if you're planning on flexing it regularly, I'd suggest looking for a different cable.

I ordered these cables because my drive enclosures came with five-foot cables that were really annoying when I just wanted a short connection between a small external disc drive and a laptop computer. These one-foot cables are perfect, the connections are tight but not too tight and the USB 3.0 transfer rate is terrific!

On my Mac osx system this causes a data lose error. The small end that fits in the USB 3.0 enclosure is loose and needs to snap in. If I lay this on a desk and never touch it, it will work for a while. Anyway, it is short and stiff and loose. I like the length, but not the other two.

What more can be said? Plugged it in, nothing happened. Tried a different port, nothing happened. Tried different cables in those same ports, those worked. Price is too high for quality control to be this low.

This cable's micro connector doesn't even properly fit a female socket. It will go into the socket, but it will not stay... it has to be HELD in place with fingers or tape. This cable is going into my garbage bin, for the price it's not even worth the hassle it would take to return it. DON'T BUY THIS!
