Coboc CY-U3-AAMF-16-BK 16.4 ft. Black SuperSpeed 5Gbps USB 3.0  A Male to A Female Repeater/Booster Extension Cable,Gold Plated,Black
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The 1st one worked about a Week

Cons: 2 cables, both give rapid connect \ disconnect messages. This design is a dud

Other Thoughts: I also wrote the first product review for this cable below, titled "Works Great". Well the first one worked great for a week. Then it started dropping connections on all my devices. I contacted Newegg, who were great about replacing it, and they shipped me a new one. It just arrived today. This new one was bad out of the box. I tested it starting with a single bay USB 3.0 external drive. About every 15 seconds it cycled through the connect \ disconnect on Windows. It happened repeatedly. Then I tested it with my second 2 bay USB 3.0 device and got the same thing.

On my larger 2 bay USB 3.0 device, both cables resulted in corrupt data errors on the disk when the cable failed. The errors were corrected with Windows scandisk and the disks are fine. But I would NOT trust this cable, at all. Period.

You'll be throwing your money away if you buy this cable. Look elsewhere

Coboc CY-U3-AAMF-16-BK 16.4 ft. Black SuperSpeed 5Gbps USB 3.0  A Male to A Female Repeater/Booster Extension Cable,Gold Plated,Black
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works at USB 3.0 speeds on my devices (active and passive)
No disconnections or drops so far
Usual fast shipping from Newegg

Cons: $ 9 cable, $7 shipping*. (Canada) see below

Other Thoughts: I've only owned this under a week, but thought I'd give an initial review \ impressions.

I plugged this into three devices to test:
-First, a 2 bay external 3.0 backup. It connected immediately, recognized it, and benchmarks w Crystal Disk showed zero speed loss. Device cable on my USB backup was an additional 3 ft
-Second, I tried a 2.0 printer. Connected and recognized no problem. Prints fine.Device cable on my printer was an additional 6 ft
-Third, the only passive device I had was a USB 2.0 thumb drive. It recognized it immediately and ran it at the 2.0 speed (as limited by the drive itself)

*This was the cheapest 16ft USB 3.0 I could find when I ordered. Trick here is to remember to throw this on a larger order to avoid paying the full shipping cost just for this cable. I added it to a larger order and it only generated a couple dollars extra for shipping

Longevity will be the test. I'll review again if I run into problems.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-16GXM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Good balance between speed and latency
- Price

Cons: None I can think of

Other Thoughts: I just picked up my second kit of this RAM. Both play nice and I'm now running 32GB. (for vid editing) I picked up the first kit in February, and now my second kit in June. The price on this RAM has been steadily dropping - about $40 lower retail than when I picked up the first kit. Go on PCpartspicker and check the price history of this RAM and you'll see. Finally RAM prices seem to be coming down again.

Both kits are only 1333 MHz when initially installed. I get the rated speed and timings through XMP profile. Pretty standard.
