5 out of 5 eggsIt works!

Pros: I read many reviews of others complaining of the short stock cables that come with external HD's, so knew I'd need another cable to go with my Seagate 1TB. Other reviews complain of a dramatic drop in data transfer speed when using longer cables. So I conducted my own test. Right out of the box, I connected the stock cable to a USB 3.0 port, then chose a 4 gig file, then copied and pasted. I then connected this StarTech cable to the same port, and performed the same copy/paste with the same file. The results:

Stock cable: 53 seconds
StarTech: 44 seconds

Not only was there no loss in speed or function, this cable actually IMPROVED the speed!

I suppose it's possible that the PC itself caused a difference in this test, for example it may have been performing some other unrelated task during the short cable copy but not during the longer one. But I did perform this test one right after the other and without doing anything else.

Cons: This cable is a bit more pricy, but since it delivered excellent results, I'm satisfied with this choice. You get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: I can't say enough about Newegg's service, it is second to none.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks like Stock Cable

Pros: Good Speed, Shipped in a loop, no complaints

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Did a speed test on a WD 2 TB Passport (USB 3.0), and the test came back at the same speed as the stock cable that was only 12 inches long. Got this so I can plug into the USB 3.0 port on the back of my PC.

Can't complain. Works as advertiesed

5 out of 5 eggsNo problems

Pros: I've been using this cable a lot for several months with three different computers and two different USB 3.0 drives (Buffalo, Seagate) and I haven't encountered any issues at all. Additionally, the cable feels flexible but sturdy at the same time.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Ordering another one.
