This review is from: SIIG CB-US0612-S1 6.56 ft. Blue Premium-quality SuperSpeed USB (USB 3.0) Type A (male) to Type A (female) extension cable
Pros: It's a pretty blue.
Cons: I bought this to extend my USB 3 port from the back of my computer to my new USB 3-powered Seagate GoFlex 1.5TB drive. Seeing the cable listed as "Premium" and paying a "Premium" price for it, I thought it would work. It didn't.
Other Thoughts: It seems right now that most USB 3.0 connections are in the back of the motherboard (obviously it's the same for add-in cards). For most situations it's a pain to reach back there to plug something in. This Seagate drive has a short cord which compounds the problem.
It would be nice if cables included physical specs in their description (such as wire gauge) to help in the decision-making process.
Not sure what to do now. Return the drive?
I'll talk to Newegg about returning the cable, but it's probably not worth it.
