Perfect

Just what I needed to connect to the car USB port. I keep this connected so I can plug the phone USB into this. This way I don't ruin the car's USB by plugging/unplugging many times. The cable is well made. I like the latches it has on one end for a secure connection.

Does the job

Do you ever need to plug in a usb cable to your computer but the cable is a tad bit short. This cable does the job. I was hooking up a few sub device and after running the cable I notice that the cable were short but I didn't want to get a long usb extension cable. This item was perfect. Highly recommended.

Good Product

attached to back of iMAC to enable me to attach a USB drive from the front. Good size and length. I wish they had white ones as well.

Basic but could be slightly better

This does the job but the cable itself is a bit on the stiff side so when not weighed down when connected it wants to straighten out unlike it's depicted in the primary image. This is a minor inconvenience but it would have been five stars if it was a bit more loose and stayed put instead of wanting to remain straight.

I use the short (6) stubs for those annoying otherwise-unusable ports on USB hubs mostly. These stub cables seem to be sturdy and of above-average quality. The female receptacles are tight, but that's a very minor quibble. So, no complaints (and believe me, I'd complain if warranted! I frequently voice invective at the producers of dumb software, especially the op-sys ;-). So far, I've not had any complaints about anything I've purchased at B&H, and I hope that it stays so. I can't say that with a lot of stuff I've bought elsewhere.
