5 out of 5 eggsNice Cable

Pros: Works perfectly, well built

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Needed the cable to hook up my new NZXT case 3.0 USB cables to an older motherboard that did not have a 3.0 header. The case will use 2.0 usb unless I upgrade my motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what it should

Pros: Good quality
wires are covered up to end (almost) with black sleeve
It works " . "

Does not stand out in windowed case

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I don't own any 3.0 devices so wanted a simple NO hassle way to avoid any issues with the USB ports in my new build which has only USB 3.0 ports in front.

Are 3.0 ports backwards compatible? I am not plugging a $150 pair of headphones in to find out, even if they are.

Manufacturer Response:

USB 3.0 ports are compatible with older formats, including 2.0, so you should be fine with using any plug-and-play devices.

5 out of 5 eggsSolved my case \ motherboard dilemma

Pros: Handy to have if your PC's case front USB connectors are USB 3, but your mother board only has USB 2 connectors. This lets you at least use the front connectors, just not at the speed they are capable of

Cons: None known

Other Thoughts: It sure would be nice if Motherboard manufacturers would automatically add backwards compatible USB 3 connectors to their USB 3 compatible boards... that would make more sense than the USB 2 connectors that come standard

5 out of 5 eggsseems to do what it's designed to do

Pros: -Helps utilize an extra USB 3.0 port on the board by letting you convert your 3.0 USB plug into a 2.0 USB plug.

Cons: -Might take up a 2.0 port if your in need of a 3.0, so decide what one you need more before buying.

Other Thoughts: I have two items in my rig that needs a 3.0 USB port on the motherboard so I had to put one of them in a 2.0 USB port and i did so with this USB 3.0 to 2.0 cable.

I'm by no means an expert but I have feeling that I am not getting 3.0 speed. But at least it utilizes the ports I need, and i think that is all that really matters. At least until Motherboard makers put two or three 3.0 motherboard ports on their boards.

1 out of 5 eggsHalf-way Works

Pros: It was very inexpensive converter.

Cons: I have 2 USB 3.0 front header ports on my case (NODE 804). When I plug the converter in, only 1 of the 2 ports works. I tried connecting it into the other USB 2.0 headers on my MOBO and same results. I will look for a solutions before returning.

Other Thoughts: No other thoughts at this time.

5 out of 5 eggsJust what I needed

Pros: Works, cheap, good length

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Case had USB3.0 connector; motherboard didn't. I plugged the cable from the case into this thing and plugged this thing into the motherboard. It's simple, and it works.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as-expected

Pros: Works as-expected, no issues at all. Allows connecting case-mounted USB3.0 cable to motherboard's onboard USB2.0 header, allowing for functional case-mounted USB ports, though at only USB2.0 speeds (which should be obvious to all).

This cable provides me with significant convenience. Without it I would have to rummage around the back of my case for any USB port regardless of type just to connect a flash drive for a quick file transfer.

Cons: None at all.

Other Thoughts: I only needed this because my motherboard's USB3.0 implementation does not include an onboard USB3.0 header.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: What a neat little accessory. In my case also quite necessary since my motherboard has USB 3.0 ports in back, but no header for front ports. The mobo DOES have USB 2.0 headers and the case has USB 3.0 ports up front ONLY.

That is where this little doo-dad came in and it is working quite well.

Quality construction.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Build:

1. MSI AM1I mobo
2. Kabini Athlon 5350 at default clock
3. 2 x 4GB (8 GB) Team Zeus DDR3-1600 9-9-9-24 1.5V
4. Gelid Solutions AM1 1U HSF
5. FSP SFX 300 Watt 80+ PSU
6. Silverstone Sugo SG05 Lite case
7. Crucial MX100 256GB SSD as boot/OS
8. WD Purple 3TB as surveillance video storage
9. Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: Worked perfectly for converting my USB3 front panel on my Corsair carbide 300r to my older USB2 only mobo. Black color is nice to blend in to the case as well.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: Cable is long and bendable enough to be easily routed/hidden via cable management holes.
