StarTech USB-A Male to USB-A Female 3.1 Gen 1 Reviews
It works great
I bought this USB extension cable to run printers, scanners and software defined radios (SDR) that are located about 30 feet from me. I first tried 3-4 USB 3.0 extension cables that are not powered; they didn't work. This 30' StarTech powered USB 3.0 cable works great. I'm more than satisfied with it.
Great cable but be careful
This is a very expensive cable and a very good one too. But I strongly recommend buying the Tether Tools JerkStopper Extension Lock to safeguard the female end from getting stepped on and crushed. (It's happened twice to me already). Also may want to consider 1/4 flexible plastic tubing to protect the cable as well. You can get this at any store that sells electrical stuff.
Do not buy the 10m cable if you are shooting tethered and moving around a lot. The extension part is extremely fragile and won’t last long. Lost two brand new cables in a month. Same exact issue on both.. The cheap plastic casing will break exposing the cables that will eventually go. Two 15ft together is way more solid then this one long cable.
Great for moving the USB port location to a convenient spot
This is just what I needed to bring the USB port on the back of our 65 Samsung (also purchased form B&H) to the front, and not have to keep trying to plug into the back of the TV.
Watch out for cars!
Worked great. However it has a connector have way down the cord and a car smashed it right away and it as rendered useless.
I will use to tether my camera to the computer for interior Architectural shooting.
It works, that why it is pricey
I have used these Active USB3.0 extension cable extensively, specifically for USB3.0 applications such as high-bandwidth devices such as 4K USB cameras. This cable is pricier than competing products, but don't be fooled, cheaper cables have proven to be unreliable when using to the full USB3.0 specification. Startech have less expensive USB2.0 extension cables which you should consider using if don't need the high-speeds of the USB3.0 specification - for example connecting HD cameras, microphones, or input devices.
Best Tether cord there is
I use this to tether my camera to a computer for digital image capture. This is hands down the best tether on the market.
