An imperfect solution to an obscure problem

Pros: As with many StarTech products, this product is the only available solution if you need a connection between a USB Type-A cable and a five-pin motherboard USB port.

Cons: There are two problems, reliability and design.

With respect to the first, two out of three I bought work fine, but the third does not work.

With respect to the second, the motherboard end only has four pins. Anyone who understands USB knows that that rightmost pin is not used, but many potential users of this product may not be so well educated. It would have been much better to have employed a five-pin connector with the rightmost pin being a blank. With only four pins, it is possible to connect it incorrectly, with blown-up USB flash drives being the result.

Other Thoughts: Motherboard USB 2.0 ports have nine pins in two rows, with the bottom-right position being a blank. Whether you use the top or bottom row is irrelevant, but ensure that you orient the red wire in this product at the very opposite end of the blank.

Works great!

Pros: Good length. Pins well labeled. Feels well constructed.

Cons: They may be too short for some aplications

Other Thoughts: Like someone said earlier you might put these on the header backwards. If you look at the motherboard manual there will be a pinout diagram to help you avoid doing that. The pins are well labeled on the unit itself. No one should make that mistake if they take the time to read the manual.

just what I needed

Pros: quality feel
good price
good length

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I needed 2 of these for my new SYBA SY-HUB50046 as I did not want to run the 2 USB 2.0 cables out of the inside of the computer. These were perfect for this new reader and the length was great for cable management.

Perfect

Pros: Perfect for permanent USB flash drive installs so they aren't hanging out of the system waiting to be broken or lost.

Cons: It can be hooked up backwards if not careful, this could cause damage to motherboard and/or usb device.

They could of used a full 10 pin USB header connector to remove this risk, but that would waste the other USB port.

Other Thoughts: I used this to load PFsense on a flash drive with out the flash drive hanging out the back of the system. I had to be creative mounting it internally, but I'm happy that the flash drive is packed inside the system.

You can use two of these per USB header on the motherboard if you needed. Make sure to check the USB header pinout before turning the computer on!
