5 out of 5 eggsbought one, then bought another, then another

Pros: The idea is simple enough: An extension cable to put your USB port where it's easy to use. They got it right, particularly in making it a little weighty, so that it doesn't move easily on my desktop and stays put while you're plugging something in.

Cons: Really none. Some folks mentioned USB 3.0 capability but that's not an issue for most users

Other Thoughts: Other commenters used this to move their wireless transmitters (wifi, wireless mouse, etc.) to a better spot for transmission - a great idea - but I bought mine because my computer has a bazillion USB ports on the back that I'll never use because access is too hard with the computer under my desk. I bought three of these and now three of those USB ports are on my desktop right in front of me. Very nice.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes Everything it's Supposed to Do

Pros: Good ol' Startech! Hasn't let me down yet. Does everything as advertised, it's not one of those rinky dink USB extension cords that are simply used for cell phone chargers, but can actually transfers data. (i.e. cameras, microphones, USB drives, etc.)

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I needed this to do playthroughs on my PS4 which is plugged into a second TV too far from my computer's USB port to reach it, so i needed this to extend the length of my webcam's USB to use in tandem with OBS.

The only thing to deter me from satisfaction now is if it stops working after a week of use, but If I were a betting man, I would consider that not to be likely.

When in doubt, go with Startech, never fails.

5 out of 5 eggsNo issues whatsoever.

Pros: Quality product, doesn't feel like the manufacturer cut corners. Works with USB 2.0 products with no issues.

Cons: None. Maybe some extra usb ports on it? But then it would be a different product;)

Other Thoughts: Buy several, you never know when you need to extend that low-powered usb micro receiver for your mouse!

5 out of 5 eggsIt's all like,, yeah

Pros: Operates according to USB 2.0 specs. Zero issues.

Cons: The Startech.com lettering stamped on the side is a bit obnoxious, and it kind of looks like a tear drop.

Other Thoughts: Buy and hide. If it has to remain visible, pay mind to the ugly lettering on the side.

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.
