USB 3.0 Extension Cable, Blue, Type A Male / Type A Female, 3 foot
Our blue 3 foot USB 3.0 SuperSpeed extension cables offer the next great leap in data transfer speeds for your devices. These particular USB 3.0 cables feature a Type A Male (Computer/Tablet/Laptop/Hub side) to Type A Female (Device side with Type A Male ended cable). This USB SuperSpeed cable enables the extension of an existing device up to a total of 10 feet without a hub/repeater or up to 60 feet (six cables) with hubs/repeaters.
The 3.0 specification boasts amazing performance improvements that will allow consumers and businesses to get more done in less time, while still supplying full backwards compatibility with previous USB versions. USB 3.0 SuperSpeed features a 10 fold improvement in signaling rate that translates to 5 Gbps versus the older 480 Mbps (USB 2.0). The new Sync-N-Go technology which minimizes user wait time (devices detect and sync faster). USB 3.0 is bi-directional allowing information transfers in both directions at the same time. Add to this the new support for a new interrupt driven protocol, the device can initiate the transfer, vs the old host based device polling. The old way had the USB controller constantly pinging the device, now the device lets the host know when actions start. Lastly USB 3.0 increases power output from 500 mA to 900 mA for faster charging of attached devices and support of more robust peripherals.
This product is just what I expected, and I am happy with the product.

Evidently, there are a number of USB 3.0 cables out there that simply don't work at the higher USB 3.0 speed. THIS cable works great!
