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-A 2.0 to USB-B 2.0 cable?
This cable uses USB-A 2.0 and USB-B 2.0 connectors and is mainly used to connect large devices such as printers and scanners to computer systems, but can also be found on a number of other devices. The cable provides a maximum data transfer rate of 480Mbps when both devices use USB 2.0 ports.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not work with Maplin ION USB vinyl record turntable Bought to use my Maplin ION USB vinyl record turntable without having to position it near my PC. Unfortunately it failed to work and I kept getting a 'not connected' message. It does work with two other random 1.8m USB A to B cables. Either the 5m cable is faulty or the signal over 5m is insufficient to be recognized by the PC. Money wasted.

For your printer to computer cables you list as USM Male A to USB Male B whereas as the piece that goes into the printer does not look like a usual USB plug. I agree the shape is correct. Is it really a USB or does it have some other designation? Peter

Asked by: Wills 176
Its a USB "B" Plug.
