- USB A Male to USB Mini-B Male
- USB 2.0
This review is from: Rosewill RCW-108 - 6-Foot USB 2.0 A Male to Mini B (5-Pin) Male, Black
As a basic cable or for charging it seems to work nicely.
I originally purchased this as part of a project. This connected to a temperature probe. The computer controlled devices via electromagnetic relays based on the readings - most of the devices have a inductive load. When using this cable, it would drop the data connection almost every time a relay was actuated. (You could see the OS claim the USB device was disconnected, then it would quickly reconnect). I could also replicate the issue by simply (un)plugging power to the nearby motors. Long story short, I was using the wrong cable for the job. I replaced it with a USB cable that had Ferrite beads on it - no more interference issues.
I still rate the cable highly. For a basic, cheap cable - it gets the job done. For my more sensitive application, I shouldn't have settled. This is more my fault than the cable's.
