  • An Effective Solution Where a Long USB Cable is Required

    I wanted to use a switch-box to share a printer between two PCs. One PC runs Windows 8 and the other runs Windows XP. The printer was not recognised on the Windows XP PC because of losses in the switch and the length of the USB cable, which exceeded the recommended maximum of 5 metres. After replacing my old USB cable with this active one, everything works perfectly and I can now hot-switch the printer between both PCs. No drivers required - just plug in the lead and you are ready to go. This is a quality product that is worth every penny.

  • Bought this cable as a reserve and collect item booked over the phone. It's the second one I've had to buy. The first one worked nicely... so my Dad nicked it.

  • I bought the 12 Meter version @ 29.00 to get a decent signal with my mobile broadband dongle. It worked instantly with no problems even for downloading big files. It did just the job I wanted. Brilliant!

  • Tried this product as a second option to extend a 3G dongle, i tried three units with no success, maybe ok for other peripherals not 3G dongles.

  • Ray Buck said:

    I note that the cable extension will not increase the speed of a usb 1 device, but presumeably the cable will still support a usb 1 device at the slower speed?

    yes that is correct

    Do you stock a 5m standard USB extension cable as mentioned in the 'USB 2.0 Active 5m Extension Lead' description? I can only seem to find 1.5m and 3m extension cables. Thanks, Darren

    For USB to be extended to 5m, a repeater is needed, this is built into this cable.

  • Alan said:

    The word Active implies the use of power so does this mean the USB socket in a laptop has to be of a certain specification so as not to overload the socket when in use ? If so, how would I check the spec of \the socket on the laptop.

    This is compliant with the standard USB specifications and will work absolutely fine on your laptop.
