*Monoprice continually strives to improve its product line to bring our customers the best products available. Therefore, changes may be made to listed specifications without prior notice. Item received may not match photo or specs shown.
The only way that this keystone jack could be used is if you paired it with a USB 3.0 B-B keystone jack, which monoprice doesn't sell. You could probably also use two of these A-A jacks with two A-A cables, which would then switch the pairs back and that would probably work.
What should really be made available is a USB 3.0 B-A keystone, with B on the back, so we can just use a standard A-B cable to the PC.
Anyways - Monoprice: can you add some of this info to the description? Most people don't read the USB spec so they wouldn't know why it doesn't work.
Thank you for your review on PID 7836. I am truly sorry to hear that this keystone did not work out for your application. I will pass along your recommendation to add more information about the use of this keystone to be taken into consideration. I will also submit a product suggestion for a USB A to B keystone. Hopefully we will be able to carry those in the future. We truly appreciate your time and your feedback! My apologies again for any inconvenience this may have caused. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us!

PROS: I can touch it
It is real
CONS: Very big and very difficult to get into a keystone jack
Does not transmit data (USB2 or 3)
No really, they don't work
PROS: worked great
PROS: does what you'd expect
PROS: Fits nice, reasonably priced, good tight cable connections.
CONS: Not available in a 3.0 B to B
I have to say, some of negative reviews still hold their ground, the connector is still too loose allowing some wobbling of the cable. Which puzzles me, I have maybe total of 10 USB ports on my desktop computer, from different vendors and none of them is loose. What is the problem with these wall jacks so every single one of them isn't tight enough?
On the positive site, the connector works. Still, being a better alternative doesn't mean it has no room for improvement.
PROS: It works, unlike other similar product
CONS: The connector is still too loose.
PROS: USB3 speeds now capable if the cables were available.
CONS: Monoprice doesn't carry any USB 3.0 cables with Male A to Male A connections so had to use their USB2.0 cables.
PROS: Inexpensive. Functional (after modification).
CONS: Too loose. USB cables kept losing connectivity.
I also tried other similar low cost USB 3 jacks on the internet and they did not work for USB 3 either.
The only jack I got to work on my computer was the Shaxon USB 3 Keystone Insert. Cost was $15 each but they work and give a great USB 3 and USB 2 experience. Perhaps the cheaper jacks work on other computers but did not work on mine.

Upon occasion i could get connectivity from my USB3.0 ports on my PC to my devices via these jacks, but only if i twisted, pushed, flexed the cables going into them. I am stuck using usb2.0 ports for now. what a waste of time and money. I will RMA these once i order more. i cant use my PC without them, however i doubt my results will be any better.
PROS: They look nice, work in my wall plates, and function ok as USB2.0 jacks.
CONS: Dont work as USB3.0. Same issue on the 5 jacks i bought.
