Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extends USB distance limitI have two USB-connected printers that are too far from the hub to work properly. These cables perfectly address that problem. If you have that situation, I highly recommend this solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Active Extension Cable WorksI bought the extension cable to connect a Canon MF6550 Multifunction because I needed a cable longer than the standard USB 2.0 5 Meter maximum. The Canon driver would not install until I worked with Canon Tech Support who suggested using a 6 foot USB cable to connect the system to the Multifunction. Once the driver was installed I connected the system to the Multifunction using a combination of the extension cable and a standard 1M USB 2.0 printer cable. This cable combination has been and is being used successfully with text recognition, scanning and printing applications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what I wanted it to do!!I purchased this cable to transfer video of our Church services from a digital video camera to our computer over a greater distance without having to move the camera and tri-pod closer to the computer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent cable.I purchased this one to replace one I have used for several years. The old one has been walked on, sucked up in the vacuum, and tied in knots, but has always worked perfectly. It took sharp puppy teeth to finally do it in. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solves Distance ProblemsThis cable is impossible to find at the usual retailers. We have large plotters and scanners connected to a single computer. The extension cord solved space problems in our engineering office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cables work for our 32' web cam needs.Purchased 6 of these to extend the reach of our web cams (500mA) to 32 feet and they work just like they when plugged in directly. Tested them with 4 daisy chained together and the web cams still worked great. Adding another for a total of 5 did not function well. We only need 2 for a total of 32 feet but tested to see how many would work just in case we wanted to extend the web cams further.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid ChoiceProduct is being used to extend the length of the USB cable supplied with a SmartBoard. It must be an active connection in order to extend the length. Cable works as expected and comes with a lifetime warranty. I had to use the warranty on one cable and the company stood behind the warranty. No complaints so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Active USB CableConnected the USB cable between my computer and the cable for my camera and the extended connection worked perfectly. Connection was about 19 feet and it worked as well as with just the camera cable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!I just used two of these cables together with a 16ft camera tethering cable and had no problems at all! That's 48 FEET OF CABLE!!! I wasn't shooting quickly but, it worked perfectly. I would have given them a higher score if I had connected 5 of these together like the product says you can but I didn't need that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome USB cable extenderWe had reception problems with our wifi modem inside our warehouse. Then we tied the modem to an 18 ft pole and ran this USB cable extender to our pc and our problems are gone! Of course, we bring it all down at the end of the day, but so far has withstood harsh winds, cold temps in the low 40s and rain/light snow flurries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent cable for the priceThe cables are used to connect several scanners and other input equipment to a centralized PC. The cables work well in our environment, I just wish the connections could be a little more robust. After connecting a few times, they seem to become flimsy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perhaps Not Exciting But It WORKS!I recently needed a USB extension cable in order to connect a device I use for flight simulator - connected to my computer directly. This cable filled the bill to PERFECTION. Worked first time. There was no signal drop. Try it, you'll like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Active USB Extension CableMy company uses webcams (the webcams only have about 3' of cable attached) as cameras because they do not require battery replacement, to photograph items we removed from a house or business after a disaster such as a fire or water damage. The photos are attached to a database line item and stored together in the database for later recall if need to review condition at time received. Additionally, we use the USB extension cable with scanners to scan the same above items into a database. Without "Active" extension cables distances of over about 3' from the laptop would not be possible. Without the Active USB cables, the webcams would lockup the database. Using a standard extension cable does the same. These Active cables work great and all the delay and lockups went away when I started to use them. These cables boost the signal making data transfers sure. The cables really go through a lot of abuses before they have to be replaced, but I replace them with the same item. I tried other Active USB cables and they just did not do the job, I still had database lockups using them.
