    Not the right type of connections
    What is really needed is a B-Female to A-Female USB 3.0 Keystone Jack. Something like PID 6562, but for USB 3.0, and with an A-Female port on the interior side. Combine that with a similar jack with the ports reversed (A-Female on the outside, B-Female on the inside), and your standard A to B cables, such as PID 5437, could be used to route USB 3.0 into and back out of a wall. Vanco has one at http://www.vanco1.com/catalog/Keystone-Inserts_152/USB-Keystone-Insert_608 but it isn't USB 3.0. The reversible feature is nice, though!

    PROS: Keystone jacks are pretty

    CONS: There don't seem to be any viable USB 3.0 cables with A Male connectors on both ends

    Please update description
    Please note that this product is not compatible with USB 3.0 Standard-A to USB 3.0 Standard-A Cables, which is what I had wanted to use. I bought this to run a A-A (male to male) USB cable from the PC to the back of the keystone jack, which is in a patch panel on my desk surface, and it does not work. This is because the A-A cables, as defined by the USB spec, swap the two extra pairs - kind of like how the old Ethernet crossover cables worked, and are only to be used for host-host connections between two PCs.



    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.

    Response from Monoprice
    Hello,

    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!

    Regards,

    Bought 3, 0 worked
    Here's my scenario. I have 3 of these to connect 2 active USB 3 extension cables. If I use these jacks, which are essentially couplers, it doesn't work. If I use another extension cable everything works fine. But these couplers don't work at all. Tried 2 computers, built in and PCIe ports, USB2, USB3... nothing. Very cheap, very thin extension cable works fine but isn't a pretty jack on the wall.

    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

    Highly recommend this to clean up all your pc cables! Add a USB jack to your wall plate directly from behind your PC, no more clutter!

    PROS: Fits nice, reasonably priced, good tight cable connections.

    CONS: Not available in a 3.0 B to B

    Works better than other similar jack
    After reading reviews I've decided to buy USB 3.0 wall connector elsewhere. That was a waste of money since "the other" connector simply didn't work, it couldn't even hold the USB cable in place, the cable would disconnect on it own weight. I've chatted with Monoprice customer support and purchased this jack.



    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.

    Works but no USB3 cable available from monoprice
    Works great for extending USB connections from back of PC to a patch panel. I am able to now run my USB Bluray, charging cables, etc from the PCs mounted in my 37U rack system without having to find the connections on the back of the PCs.

    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.

    Sloppy Fit
    Unlike the other reviewers that claimed to have a "tight connection", the two we purchased were very loose. The USB cables kept slipping out, and repeatedly lost connectivity. I had to manually disassemble both units and push all of the locking tabs further into their respective openings, so they would grip the male connectors better. After that, they did work.

    PROS: Inexpensive. Functional (after modification).

    CONS: Too loose. USB cables kept losing connectivity.

    Junk Connectors
    Don't work as USB3.0. Tried 6 different cables from 2 different manufacturers on the 'wall side' of the jack, and connected to 3 different usb3.0 hubs, usb3.0 external drive, and a usb mouse., used 3x different USB3.0 ports on the PC and 3 diff USB2.0 ports on PC.

    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.
