This review is from: GWC AR2500- 5M 16.4 ft. Silver USB 2.0 Repeater Cable
People complain about these being bulky, but you have to understand that because this cable takes the USB signal to its maximum limit, it actually implements a Hub device on the female end that acts as a signal repeater. This means that it has a little PCB repeater built into the female end, and your PC will therefore recognize it as a discreet USB device, for which it will automatically install drivers.
This should not interfere with the operation of any attached devices - I attached another USB Hub to this and used it in my theater room to place the wireless dongles for my mouse/keyboard close to where they are implemented. My computer had no trouble recognizing the hub and attached devices. I've also used it with a wifi adapter so that I could move it to a place where it had good reception. As long as you keep it plugged into the same USB port, it will immediately pass through the repeater and recognize your device. If you move USB ports, it will have to keep reinstalling drivers.
