5 out of 5 eggsGreat-Sturdy-Strong

This review is from: StarTech USB3SEXTAA6 6 ft. Blue SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Extension Cable A to A - M/F

Pros: Great cable, very sturdy and strong connectors. Wire does not bend and tear like thinner cheaper ones. I bought the USB micro 3.0 cable that matches it. This is for charging my Samsung Galaxy note 3

Cons: none so far in almost 6 months of use.

4 out of 5 eggsgood and fast

This review is from: StarTech USB3SEXTAA6 6 ft. Blue SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Extension Cable A to A - M/F

Pros: good construction tick hard to bend so theoretically hard for the internal wires to brake. I use it for my leap motion controller and there is no noticeable speed difference.

Cons: The female end of the cable does not look clean metal should have been covered, luckily for my use it is hidden. It’s not a deal killer but it is certainly something to consider.

3 out of 5 eggsBelow Expectations

This review is from: StarTech USB3SEXTAA6 6 ft. Blue SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Extension Cable A to A - M/F

Pros: It sometimes works at 6ft.

Cons: It won't power any external hard drive when I add in my additional 1.5ft extender
It feels cheap and thinner than any of my other USB 3.0 cables

Other Thoughts: I purchased this cable to extend into a USB 3.0 signal into my modified USB fireproof safe. By the time the signal passes through the 6 feet of cable, there is only enough power to make another 6 inches while still (sometimes) powering my drive. Once I run it through the safe's cable, there is no longer enough power to turn on my drive. The USB 3.0 standards state that the cable will meet standard USB 3.0 speeds assuming it is less than 3 meters. I still have a few more feet to spare.


However, when I use my 16ft USB 2.0 extension cable, my drive becomes accessible again.

That means there is one of two things wrong. Any USB 3.0 cable cannot go that far, or the cable is bad.
StarTech won't send me a new one without me shipping them the old one first (which is understandable). At the cost of shipping + the cable cost ($7.99), I'd rather buy a different cable elsewhere.

5 out of 5 eggsReally handy

This review is from: StarTech USB3SEXTAA6 6 ft. Blue SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Extension Cable A to A - M/F

Pros: -Same speed when I tested it

-NO longer have to plug stuff into the back of the computer, which we know is annoying

-I work with lots of drives due to my proffessionDoesn't wear the contacts on my motherboard, so worst case scenario If the contacts on my cable wear out I just buy a new cable, rather than wearing out a port on my board.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: These are great, I should buy extyensions for all my ports

4 out of 5 eggsAsked for an RMA, did not need it

This review is from: StarTech USB3SEXTAA6 6 ft. Blue SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Extension Cable A to A - M/F

Pros: As stated in the title I had to ask for an RMA, but then realized I did not need it. When i first get the cable, I hooked it up to a external Seagate 2.5 inch hdd. My motherboard is an P9X79 pro mobo. All my USB 3.0 ports are controlled by the Asmedia ASM104x controller. When i first connected the drive using this cable (the drive worked fine without the extension) Windows 8 would pick up the drive but not be able to access it causing the system to hang. Tried it in different USB 3.0 ports did not work. Updated the USB 3.0 Firmware, still did not work. Asked for an RMA. After this I noticed that the download section for my Asus motherboard under utilities contained a file called USB3_Boost after downloading and installing the update (it is part of AI Suite the cable worked fine with the drive. Apparently, you need UASP installed for this cable to work with certain ASUS mobos when the USB 3.0 is on an ASmedia controller. RMA was then canceled

Cons: Had to install USB3 Boost and AI Suite. Needs UASP in order to work on ASmedia controller

Other Thoughts: Have not measured the transfer rates but for me the drive seems as response as it is without the extension cable. I also cannot speak to how the cable would react if used on a native chipset controlled USB 3.0 port (such as the on the z77 chipset)

1 out of 5 eggsStarTech USB3.0 6' cable - SLOW

This review is from: StarTech USB3SEXTAA6 6 ft. Blue SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Extension Cable A to A - M/F

Pros: None

Cons: I'm using this cable with a Seagate 1 TB USB 3.0 external hard drive. With the drive plugged in directly to the motherboard, I get ~45-50 MB/sec. Using the extension cable, I get ~ 8-11 MB/sec. I would not recommend buying this cable, at least to use with this drive.

1 out of 5 eggsWow, Its Just Cable...So I thought

This review is from: StarTech USB3SEXTAA6 6 ft. Blue SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Extension Cable A to A - M/F

Pros: None

Cons: UBS 3.0 cable 1.8m and it doesn't work here, period.

No USB-3 on case front so I thought I would add this cable to extend from the rear connector on my Asus Crosshair V board. Using a USB 3.0 HDD Docking Station I was able to transfer 430gb of mp3/m4a in 5 hours at USB-2 (20mb per).

On trying to use this cable I wasn't able to transfer anything as it found the 2tb Seagate drive but said the drive must be formatted first (being using for months and still had over 400gb of files on it, for transfer in any case.

No matter as none of the USB-3 slots I picked would see the the drive properly with StarTech cable.

I pulled the StarTech cable out of the mix and straight onto the first USB-3 I tried and you guessed it; it work fine. It hit 100mb per, but slid back to 75mb per and near the end of the transfer it was still hits around 64mb per.

The transfer at USB-2 was about 5 hours, USB-3 was just over 1 hour. USB-3 is much faster if only the USB-3 cables works and this one doesn't. $11 to StarTech and nothing for me. That's bad business in my book.
