    Ultra Slim Series USB 3.0 Cable, A Male to Micro B Male, 1 Ft White

    Connect your SuperSpeed USB 3.0 devices using this Ultra Slim Series USB 3.0 A Male to Micro B Male cable from Monoprice!

    This cable features a USB 3.0 A male connector on one end and a USB 3.0 micro B male connector on the other end. The USB 3.0 micro B connector differs from the traditional USB 2.0 micro B connector in that it has an additional 5-pin plug, which carries power for external devices, such as portable hard drives.

    It has an ultra slim design, which results in smaller and slimmer connector heads than ordinary cables. The A male connector head measures about 16mm wide, 8mm thick, and 20mm long. The micro B male connector head measures about 16mm wide, 7mm thick, and 20mm long.

    This USB 3.0 Cable is the Bee's Knees

    Pros: Beautiful build and tight attachment Micro B (no drops, no fouls, no errors)
    Top Performance (Read/write External Streaming 130MByte-sec)
    Maleable and Short (12 inch length)
    And priced right.

    Cons: Are you kidding?

    Monoprice scores again! Perfectly short Type A-Type B Micro USB 3.0 power and sync cable. Replaces faulty heavy-duty cable that came with my OWC external mini drive which would hesitate to mount and/or drop the connection with just a hint of motion or vibration. This cable is all what my Pro's list and more. Worth every penny, as I was ready to return the OWC external enclosure as defective, until I decided to replace the cable with this. Monoprice, you score again!

    Cable is stiff

    Pros: Nice compact cable bodies make it easy to access adjacent ports, short length eliminates cable clutter, low cost, white colour.

    Cons: Stiff, inflexible cable resists placing peripherals where you want them and puts strain on the connectors if devices aren't position "just right."

    The cable that came with my Western Digital external drive is very stiff. So is the one that came with my Mediasonic external drive case. I ordered some of these cables in the hope that they would be more flexible. They aren't. I don't know if there's something in the USB3 spec that results in devices needing cables that are intrinsically stiff, or if manufacturers are just reluctant to use nicer cable due to cost, but I'd be willing to pay more for a cable that doesn't impose its own will on the orientation of peripherals on my desk.

    Pros: Nice small cable with white jacket

    Cons: cable drops drive connection if left unattended for longer than 6 hours

    These cables will drop the connection if you leave them connected and stop using the computer for a period of time (approx 6 hours) I have Western digital and Seagate cables that came with my external drives that never drop the connection (I can shut the lid of my Mac and leave the machine for days) With the Monoprice cable I get an error "drive not properly ejected" every time. So if you use these cables don't leave the computer idle for long periods or you will lose your connection.

    Fast and takes less space

    Pros: fast, firm connectors, compact and flexible

    Cons: none so far

    August 2014: It's hard to find replacement USB 3 cables for portable drives which have good reviews. Some brands have cheap wiring and some have loose connectors. So, I was thrilled to find this slim version from Monoprice as I had good results with their eSATA cables. I first ordered and tested the 1 ft and 2 ft version of this slim USB 3 cable and they were as fast as the original 2 ft. Verbatim cable (copied 25GB in 4 min to a Macbook Air). I prefer the 1 ft cable for travel purposes and ordered 2 more as spares.
