    32ft 2 Port USB 2.0 A Male to A Female Active Extension / Repeater Cable

    Get three, three, three functions in one cable with the Monoprice USB 2.0 Active Extension/Repeater/Hub!

    You can extend the length of your USB 2.0 cable an additional 32 feet with this cable. It comes with a USB A male connector on one end and a pair of USB A female connectors on the other.

    When extending USB cables beyond about 15 feet, you can suffer from signal strength reduction. The further you go, the worse it becomes until you get poor (or no) valid connections. This cable includes a signal amplifier, which will boost the signal strength so you can extend further without signal loss. It draws on USB power to provide the boost or can use an optional AC adapter (PID 2220, not included) for the power it needs.

    This cable is also serves as a 2-port USB hub. Each of the two USB A female connectors can connect to a discrete USB device and the cable will manage data signals in the same way as any other USB hub. The cable can be used as a passive hub or active, using the optional AC power adapter (PID 2220, not included) connected to the repeater unit, allowing the cable to drive power-hungry USB devices, such as portable hard drives or for phone charging.

    The repeater unit has two LEDs, one to indicate when an external power source is connected and the other to indicate when a valid USB data link is established with one or both of the hub ports.

    it works but the AC adapter is required

    Cons: LEDs are too bright. I had to cover them with electrical tape.

    I use my TV for gaming and using a wireless KB/mouse just wasn't cutting it so I purchased this USB extension cable so I could use a wired KB and mouse. When I first hooked it up I couldn't get anything to work on it. I tried several different keyboards and mice but the computer just wouldn't detect them. I then connected the "optional" AC adapter and everything started working. The description implies the AC adapter is only needed for "power-hungry" devices such as external drives. I don't consider a keyboard and mouse to be power-hungry yet they still required the AC adapter to work.

    Works

    Pros: -It did what I needed.
    -I was able to get at least 250mbps out of it with no power adapter.
    -Better than the APC cat5 I was using before which was only USB 1.1

    I needed a good 25ft to go from my HTPC to my theater seats where I have my mouse, keyboard, and two USB measurement mics. Works great as a charger for 3D glasses, cellphones and data transfers from SD card readers.

    Pros: Easy to use.
    Works like it's supposed to.

    Cons: Placement of power connector could be better.

    Works like I expected it to - just fine. The cable arrived coiled up, but stretched out without a fight and stayed reasonably flat where I placed it.

    As I mentioned in the "Cons", there is a junction block at the end of the cable where the two USB sockets join to the main cable. This is also where you connect external power if you need it. The power plug comes in at a right angle to the rest of the cords - it would be better if the external power jack was placed beside the place where the main cable goes into the junction block. Even if this made the junction block a little thicker, it would be better than the current side connection.

    The cable works just fine. I have a powered USB hub running through it.

    Pros: Extended length without signal degradation. Two way splitter for mouse and keyboard (or other devices) removes the need for an additional huge.

    Cons: None.

    This cable is amazing. USB degrades at 16 feet, so to get an extended length on a single cable (built in signal boost) is extremely convenient. With the bonus feature of two female ends, you're able to connect a mouse and keyboard off of the same cable. Great buy!
