    Didn't work for me
    Bought 2 of these cables, none worked properly on 3.0
    First one Windows did not even see the HD, second cable Windows sees it as a 2.0 HD.
    I get the windows message about the drive can run faster on a 3.0 port. The WD works fine when plugged directly with its original cable (1.5'). The HD with the extensions also worked when plugged to 2.0 ports, but at 2.0 speeds. Either I have a very picky HD, or there is something wrong with the extensions. Will try the 1.5' extensions when they arrive.

    PROS: Low price.
    Feels and looks like a quality cable

    CONS: Did not work with my WD 3.0 HD

    Great cable
    I use these as usb remote extensions at my desk mounted with 3m VHB tape. gold plating ensures lasting good connectivity. You can also mount usb receiver dongles: bluetooth or wireless keyboard or mouse so that signal is strong...literally inches away. Order several in 3ft and 6ft sizes, you will need them.

    PROS: straight solid construction. Not zig baggy like ordinary usb included cables.

    CONS: none

    USB 3.0 Extension - Excellent Value
    We're using these with an iMac and a Mac Mini so that we can connect USB 3.0 flash drives without having to go to the back of the computers. Much more convenient. The read/write speeds through these cables is fantastic.

    Don't see how it would make sense to get these anywhere else.

    PROS: Well made. Nice color. Simple packaging. Fast delivery.

    CONS: None

    Excellent quality and works as expected
    Used this cable so I don't have to try and find the connection on the back of my tower case. Works perfectly. Shipping was fast and cable works as expected. *thumbs up*

    PROS: Solid cable

    Excellent connectors

    CONS: None

    Buy one. Buy a few. You NEED them.
    As USB ports on MacBooks and Ultrabooks get closer together while high capacity flash drivers become chunkier, things can get crowded. Since your next notebook will probably have USB 3.0 ports, (also called SuperSpeed USB), get ready now with a few of these 3-footers.

    I verified that the cable meets the USB 3.0 specs by plugging in a Patriot 32GB USB 3.0 flash drive with and without the cable. Whether I'm running Mac OS X or Windows 7 in Boot Camp, the system report behaves as if the cable isn't even there. Just to be sure, I swapped to USB 2.0 cable and, BAM!, the speed dropped. Mac OS X saw the flash drive as USB 2.0 and Windows 7 even chided me to use a USB 3.0 port.

    Like everything else I've bought from Monoprice, this one's a winner.

    PROS: Premium quality, exceptional price, verified performance on both Mac and Windows.

    Nice USB 3.0 Extension
    Just a quick point about color. It took me a minute when I ordered this to make the connection between USB 3.0 and the loud, gaudy blue color, because I was thinking black would be better. When it arrived, it is blue, but a much darker blue than the picture on the site. It's a little thing, but if you are put off by the color, don't worry.

    PROS: Cable well made up, with little cable twist memory, and it performs as expected.
