      The is an excellent tether cable, made of good material and seems of excellent quality as well. I found working with the tether cable to be very flexible and pliable. Functionality of it is working great and is fast transporting the data from the Nikon D800 camera to the my Mac Pro Six Core tower. My tether program is Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. These tools are working great for me as I am not allowed to visually see my product shots and make corrections on the fly. And the color is a safety feature making you constantly aware the cable is laid on the floor in your work area. I would also recommend that you also purchase the Tether Tools JerkStopper Camera Support, as I did. The two work together hand in hand.

      Works Well

      Works great but feel the price is high for 15'. that is why it only got 3 stars.

          Comments about Tether Tools 15' TetherPro USB 3.0 Male A to Micro-B Cable (Hi-Visibility Orange):

          Did my first studio shoot of a five person local band, yesterday. As convenient as tethering is there are a lot of cables over which someone can stumble. This cord seemed to be the "one ring" that ruled them all: it gave loud notice to watch your step.

          It was a bit stiff so while this may make it durable, I did need to twist it to insert it correctly. Not a huge issue but I kept wondering what torque I was putting on that delicate USB port on the d810.

            Solid cable. I've bought other cables in the past for far less money but they constantly had connectivity problems. This one works great and I've never had a problem with a poor connection yet. But still, if other people can make it for a quarter of the price this still seems a little overpriced.

                      I'm using this product with my Nikon D800 camera and macbookair during my mostly outdoor portrait shots. This is very useful because it's long enough and due to its color it can be easy to notice by others. So people can pay attention easily.

                        I was looking for a fast, reliable option for getting my images from my Nikon D-800 to my Macbook Pro for instant client review while on location. Wireless options are limited and somewhat slow. The TetherPro cable is USB3 which is compatible with the D-800 and backwards compatible to USB2 for my 2007 Macbook Pro. It's a simple, somewhat old school set up that just works. The cable does easily fall out of the camera's usb port so a Jerk Stopper or other cable support is needed.

                          It plugs into my camera and my computer, and makes files transfer. What more do you need? :)

                          The cable itself is thick, likely due to both the quality of construction and the fact it's USB 3.0. The Male A end fits rather loosely into my MacBook Pro, but that's not the cord's fault; the port is only USB 2.0, and too shallow to fit the whole plug. It is compatible though, and transfers files faster than other USB 2.0 cables I've used to tether.
