5 out of 5 eggsSolid cable, flexible arrangement

Pros: Solid quality cable. Each USB connector having its own pair of screw mountings provides the most flexible mounting arrangement

Cons: None so far really. I had a bit of an issue connecting the 20 pin connector to the USB 3.0 card, but mostly because I didn't want to apply too much force and potentially bend pins so I unmounted the card and carefully held the connectors and clicked it together and remounted the card.

Other Thoughts: Given the particular case that I have (an older eMachines) I wasn't sure how practical it would be to get front side USB 3.0 ports in the place where there was space for them and a covered cutout in the sheet metal. Well, it all worked great, in part thanks to the individual connector heads and flexible screw mountings of this cable.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Perfect length and size to install through my external 3.5" drive bay. Thick cables seem to have plenty of shielding.

Cons: Would have been nice to include a template for the cutout.

5 out of 5 eggs2-Port Front Panel USB 3.0 to MOBO

Pros: I don't think there is any other product out there that allows USB 3.0 connections directly from front ports to the header on Intel 77 MOBOs. Blog solutions are usually to run the port wires out the back and then plug them into the rear USB 3.0 ports! Silly? Silly! This is a much more elegant solution, completely internal.

Cons: StarTech only offers the ~20 inch version. I am building a small form factor and I have to loop the wires a few times to make it fit. I hope they come up with the same product in a 5 or 6 inch cable length.

Other Thoughts: I have not tried these out as I am still building. I presume they are high quality. Please read your MOBO instructions about enabling USB 3.0 as I know on my Intel DH77DF I have to change some bios settings and update drivers before full 3.0 is enabled. Good Luck!

5 out of 5 eggsThey Work.

Pros: Pro's: It works. Not as pretty, but has thicker gauge wiring than the cable I bought it to replace. (See other thoughts)

Cons: Hardly a con, but I think it would look better to have the cords be neatly bundled together with nylon sheath except for a couple inches on the end since they are usually mounted right next to each other, but other people might prefer them separate.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace two front panel mounting USB 3.0 extension cords because didn't want my rear ports occupied when I have a USB 3.0 header available on my motherboard.
