5 out of 5 eggsVery handy

Pros: This is a very handy cable to have. I have mine from my (rear only) USB 3.0 ports to my desk top (i.e. physical desk top) and use it to plug in various USB 3.0 things without crawling around behind the desk.

Cons: None to speak of.

Other Thoughts: So far, works great.

1 out of 5 eggsUSB 2.0 Speeds

Pros: 1. The construction is good quality. The cable is extra thick with shielding. The two connectors are not gold plated.
2. Rosewill technical service is excellent. An English speaking technician is very knowledgeable on company products.
3. On sale for $2.99 with free shipping, this is a steal for a 3' USB 3.0 extension cable.
4. My order arrived in three days.
5. I use the cable extensions for my keyboard and mouse. They are great!

Cons: 1. The performance results are horrible. Test results show that USB 3.0 speed is equal to USB 2.0 when using the cable extension. The former is slightly faster but not by much - a 6% to 10% increase. These are barely noticeable. Surely, they are not the 10X theoretical speed increase that is hyped by false advertisements.

Transferring a large file, 1gb and larger . . . . . . . . . . . . USB 2.0 speed = 20.0 mb/s . . . . . USB 3.0 speed = 22.0 mb/s
.
Transferring several small files, 30mb and smaller. . . . . . USB 2.0 speed = 15.0 mb/s . . . . . USB 3.0 speed = 16.0 mb/s
.
.
2. The above results do not surprise me. In the Newegg website, half of the reviews by users reported similar results - you will get USB 2.0 speeds using the Rosewill cable.

Other Thoughts: Because the 50% Newegg reviews on the Rosewill USB 3.0 cables were positive and the prices were cheap, I took a chance and purchased four cables anyway. Although useless for transferring files on USB 3.0 flash drives, they work very well on my keyboard and mouse.

1 out of 5 eggsNot as rated

Pros: Its 6 foot long. Its black.

Cons: WILL NOT RUN at USB 3.0 speeds. Direct conned my passport drive - it works very fast. As soon as I link it through this cable ... it slows down to USB 2.0 speeds (maybe slower)

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a usb2.0 cable, this may be for you.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Quality

Pros: Dirt Cheap for a USB 3.0 cable

Cons: The first time I used the cable, only one of the high speed pairs worked, I could move files to the USB device at USB 3.0 speeds, but only USB 2.0 low speed from the device. The second time I used the cable neither, of the high speed pairs had a connection.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this if you want reliable USB 3.0 connections, definitely not something you can throw in your bag and expect to work when you take it out. When the cable is coiled even slightly, a distinct crinkle that sounds like wires breaking can be heard. I've been disappointed with Rosewill quality and service responsiveness more then a couple of times now.
