4 out of 5 eggsJust as described

Pros: *Nicely weighted
*Decent-quality connectors

Cons: *Base connector distorted by plastic-molding process

Other Thoughts: It's exactly what you would expect, except that the USB connector molded into the 'base' has been apparently compressed by the plastic-molding process. This makes inserting a standard USB device or cable rather difficult in some situations. The fit is very tight, and may be a problem for more delicate connectors.

One egg removed for an apparent lack of manufacturing quality control, but it does work just fine for my purposes.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

Pros: I bought this to improve the wireless connection for my Logitech M510 as it would skip around. Since I got this extension cable and set it on my desktop, my wireless mouse works flawlessly!

Cons: It doeskin make my morning coffee :(

4 out of 5 eggsGood for USB 2.0 not 3.0

Pros: Stable, good length, will work well for my USB 2.0 IR receiver.

Cons: Not appropriate for USB 3.0 as suggested by Newegg in its pairing upon ordering

Other Thoughts: It is what it is. Would be 5 eggs if it was not held up as an option for bundling with a USB 3.0 device. Not a big deal, just ordered a USB 3.0 version from StarTech for $12.59.

5 out of 5 eggsJust what I was looking for.

Pros: Right price
Right cable length
Good Weight on the base

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I was looking to replace the 10ft usb extension cable I was using with my Logitech mouse and kybrd dongle. Has nice weight on the base and the perfect length on the cable. Nice find for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsNice weighted base

Pros: The weighted base is nice as it is the only thing "connected to the PC" that doesn't move.

Cons: 5ft cable is 1 ft shorter than all other cables I have running to my desk. So, it makes it an odd location. Not worth an egg to knock off, as I knew that before buying as stated in the title.

Other Thoughts: Wish it was 6ft.

5 out of 5 eggsVery well made..

Pros: 5' length.
Stable female end piece.
Quality made.

Cons: I didn't buy this a long time ago.

Other Thoughts: I don't need to own this for more than a moment to know it fits the job needed.
I wanted better line of sight for my Mouse transmitter. This is awesome, it reaches nicely to my desktop. It improved my connectivity, no more poor signal.
I have a 3 monitor Eyefinity arrangement and it was blocking my mouse signal quality. The moment I connected this.. all is better.
I recommend this for any reason you want USB availability.
I am going to buy a couple more.. one more for me, and one for my Daughter. She will no longer need to go to the back of her PC.
Thanks for the quick delivery as usual Newegg.. I buy all my PC needs here.
