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 3.0 A to USB 3.0 B cable?
This cable uses USB A 3.0 and a single USB B 3.0 connector 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 5Gbps when both devices use USB 3.0 ports.
