What is USB?
Commonly found on desktop computers and laptops, USB connections are among the most versatile type of connections. USB is primarily used for transferring data between devices, but it also has the ability to transfer power between compatible devices. Currently four versions of USB exist – USB 3.1 (10Gbps), USB 3.0 (5Gbps), USB 2.0 (480Mbps) and USB 1.1 (12Mbps). In most cases cables are compatible across all versions but maximum transfer speed may be limited. For example, a USB 2.0 cable in a USB 3.0 port would only provide a maximum transfer rate of 480Mbps, not 5Gbps. To achieve optimum transfer speeds here, a USB 3.0 cable should be used.

Why use this USB extension cable?
This cables uses a male USB-A 2.0 port to female USB-A 2.0 port, which allows you to extend an existing connection or move a USB connection point to another location without the hassle of moving your computer. This cable can be used to passively extend your connection up to a maximum of five meters, however a larger distance can be covered with help from a USB repeater cable. The maximum transfer rate of this cable is 480Mbps when all devices are USB 2.0 compliant.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bit expensive, but it works well. [the rest of this blurb is because there is a 50 character minimum, if you cannot express your self in less than 50 characters, why bother?]
