Product Description

Just plug-and-play for hard drive enclosures, printers, modems, cameras, and other SuperSpeed USB peripherals. This cable provides a transfer rate of up to 4.8 Gbps when connected with a USB 3.0 compliant host and device. Foil and braid shielding reduces EMI/RFI interference and twisted pair contruction helps reduce crosstalk thus ensuring SuperSpeed, error-free data transfer. Protective overmolded connector is color-coded blue to highlight USB 3.0 connectivity compatibility.

Please Note: USB 3.0 (4.8 Gbps) provides TEN TIMES the capability of USB 2.0 (480 Mbps); it also provides up to 900 mA power instead of the 500 mA available with USB 2.0. Type A connections are backwards compatible to USB 2.0 and even USB 1.1. Finally, while USB 2.0 cables will work with USB 3.0 devices (at the lower USB 2.0 transmission speed and power), you won't enjoy the SuperSpeed of USB 3.0 without connecting with USB 3.0 cables!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still The Best I've been purchasing from Cables To Go since the '90's (in the days of SCSI cables). They were a high quality shop then, and they've maintained that quality over the years! This cable did exactly what I needed it to do! The fact that lengths can be specified is a huge plus! C2G consistently delivers a high quality product!

Can I use this Cable to overview my laptop screen on LG TV? Thanks for your help

Asked by: Jacob
No. That is a USB cable that would be used to send data. You would need to connect a video cable to make that connection. You will need to find what port that the laptop and the TV have in common to make the connection. Most laptops have either a VGA or HDMI port. I would verify that the TV has the same port and select the appropriate cable.

Is this cable exactly identical on each end? All of the other ones I have ordered say that they are because they are A Male on both ends, but one end always has a slight flare that won't fit into my computer. I need the one without the flare on either ...

Can this be used in USB 2 to USB 2 and also in USB 2 TO USB 3? Is it backwardly compatibility.

Asked by: Art
Yes this is backwards compatible. This cable is not intended to connect two computers together or to connect a USB hub between two computers. Doing so may cause irreparable damage to your computers. We offer a USB file share cable (#39941) to connect two computers.

Hi. Can I use this cable to transfer computer files from one laptop to another? If yes, can it connect with a locked laptop to obtain files from that locked laptop?

Asked by: Marshal
If your laptops have USB A connectors you can transfer files. Our cable has nothing in it that will allow you to Unlock a laptop. You must be able to have access to the drive of the laptop.
