5 out of 5 eggsKeeps chugging right along

Pros: I've owned my vlink cable for over a year now and I get the same speeds from this as I get by plugging directly into my USB 3 ports. While I can't say I use it every day I do use it frequently and it's a very handy tool if you have multiple computers or external enclosures. In my case I use it with my media PC. I was concerned at first that due to its length it might not supply enough power or that it would dissipate over the length of the cable but that hasn't been an issue. It works fine with USB 2 flash sticks/external enclosures as well as USB 3.

Cons: None for me

Other Thoughts: I can't attest to the negative reviews and given my personal experience they surprise me but I can say that for me this has worked wonderfully

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works as USB2

Cons: Only repeats as USB2.0.

Periodically drops the connection.

Other Thoughts: While this Device does indeed repeat using the XHCI protocol, it only repeats USB2.0 signals, NOT USB3.0 signals. While I can plug any USB2.0 device into it and it will work, a USB3.0 device will not even work as USB2.

I put a USB3 hub on it (which I also tested by plugging directly into my system's USB3 port, and it worked fine), and it WILL work as a USB2 Hub, but NOT a USB3 hub. And again, any USB2 device plugged into the hub would work, but any USB3 device would simply not work at all. For reference, both my system and the hub used Fresco Logic USB3 chips.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Works great, even when it is repeating a PS/2 to USB adapter instead of normal USB (don't ask).

Cons: A little light or something to tel you know it was working might be nice.

Other Thoughts: I wish I had gotten a few more feet of cable.
