5 out of 5 eggsjust what I needed

Pros: quality feel
good price
good length

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I needed 2 of these for my new SYBA SY-HUB50046 as I did not want to run the 2 USB 2.0 cables out of the inside of the computer. These were perfect for this new reader and the length was great for cable management.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: Perfect for permanent USB flash drive installs so they aren't hanging out of the system waiting to be broken or lost.

Cons: It can be hooked up backwards if not careful, this could cause damage to motherboard and/or usb device.

They could of used a full 10 pin USB header connector to remove this risk, but that would waste the other USB port.

Other Thoughts: I used this to load PFsense on a flash drive with out the flash drive hanging out the back of the system. I had to be creative mounting it internally, but I'm happy that the flash drive is packed inside the system.

You can use two of these per USB header on the motherboard if you needed. Make sure to check the USB header pinout before turning the computer on!

1 out of 5 eggsGot a bad one

Pros: Liked the fact that this cable is sheathed.

Cons: Ground wire came loose from the MB connector. After discovering this, I noticed that the ground wire was somewhat malformed near the insertion point to the connector, indicating a manufacturing glitch. I re-wired the good half to an old USB MB connector I'd saved from an old computer to make this cable usable.

Other Thoughts: I got a bad one, but I think that was just the luck of the draw.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect thing

Pros: I used this to come off the internal motherboard header, and attach a sub flash drive. it is perfect, and a little 2sided sticky tape works to keep it in place.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: possibly a little longer
