Needed the extra long cable to run a remote disc to my main system. Even though I was using a powered disc I still needed to connect the power supply to the cable to get the connection to stay stable. So far the connection has stayed up and appears to be running well.
I use to connect an xbox-one game controller and an A/D converter to my PC. My specific application is for playing Rocksmith 2014, which requires an electric guitar connection. I have discerned no audio latency issues, which is crucial for playing this game.
This is a great alternative to the typical wireless keyboard/mouse combo, which you normally find in any conference room. For use with thin clients mounted next to the projector, this cable enables you to keep your privacy using just a single wire from ceiling to table.
The perfect solution for streaming with multiple usb cameras
I used three of these cables connected to connect 6 C920 web cams to a Vantec UGT-PCE430-4C usb host controller. The cables were a perfect solution for my needs and worked flawlessly. I had planned on using 1 active cable attached to a hub but, this cut down on the number of cable runs making my setup cleaner and cheaper. I was able to add 3 cameras to one of the cable end points by attaching a usb hub. I should also mention that I used a passive 10ft cable in my chain. Excellent product and price!
PROS: Extends length of usb cable over passive cabling. Split one port into two with built in hub. Easy to use, reliable and affordable.
I am using this in an unpowered configuration to connect my HP dc7800 with USB 2.0 ports running iSpy to a USB camera with auto-switching IR lens and IR lights. The computer has a second USB camera connected on a different port as well. All of the wiring is indoors (except the last few inches) and the camera is mounted on the exterior of my house. After a couple of months things are still performing very well. A great solution for my setup.,
PROS: Perfect length. Adequate power for USB camera without using optional power supply.
Excellent USB 2.0 alternative to pricy Cat5 extenders
I have been using expensive Cat5 USB 2.0 extenders for an interactive touch wall, and I wanted to try this as a cost-effective alternative. I put this and the 5V power supply (part 2220) in place and it worked like a charm. I then removed the power supply and the particular PC I'm using had enough USB bus power to support the touch interface without the external power supply. My initial testing is extremely positive. I have not yet implemented them in a long-term application but they're going into my next install, for sure. Highly recommended based on testing so far.
PROS: Work as described External or bus powered Great price
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.
CONS: LEDs are too bright. I had to cover them with electrical tape.
