StarTech USB3SEXTAA6 6 ft. Blue SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Extension Cable A to A - M/F

Pros: Works as designed!

However, win 7 did not "see" my external hdd after connecting, although the power light came on. I originally thought the issue was that I was using an extension to lengthen the short USB 3.0 cable suppled with the device. I then hooked up the drive using only the short cable and that did not work either! Obviously, the issue was with Win 7.

I then un-enabled the USB 3.0 host controller (manage- devices), re-enabled it immediately and the hdd was then seen as a 3.0 device, and started working flawlessly.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Win 7 seems to have issues with USB 3.0. There are many discussions about this on the net. Also, make sure that you maintain a short cable connection (3 meters or less, especially when using extensions).
