Excellent adapter; perfect size to carry with a laptop.
The extension cable works perfectly. It's about 5-6 in long, including the connectors, very good for laptop usage. I was able to connect and SSD and a HDD both to my HP X360 laptop, which has only one 3.0A connector. I did not test it for speed, but I did not see any appreciable delays. It was not a good test, however, because I had the HDD, not the SSD, on the side of the adaptor. But it performed as expected. I certainly recommend it.
I purchased this recently to see if my idea would work. I wondered if my Google Pixel cell phone would recognize a USB thumb drive with this adapter. IT WORKED!! I'm able to view, edit, save, print, email any file on my thumb drive!! I'll probably get a couple more so I have one at home and one at work.
The product looks just like the picture. Sorry, I don't have photo to share, but the reasoning behind the purchase followed a purchase of a new HP PC without a dvd writer, so I have to use my external one. Unfortunately, HP didn't plan enough standard usb ports, so my mouse/keyboard combo took up one, my dvd the other, so now I have a 4 port hub to run the other peripherals, and I was out of accessory options. This adaptor takes care of the mouse, I have the 4 port hub and a spot for my dvd rewriter. Caught me off guard after I set it up, but the adptor solved my problem. Very Happy!
Really like the cost and lifetime warrantee. Would like to see them made so both ends lay flat on the table. The two ends on 2 of the ones I received sit at about a 45 degree angle to each other. One of the ones I received was actually perpendicular to the other (90 degree angle). Otherwise a great adapter.
