Rated 5 out of 5 by from Usual Superb Product and Service I used this cable to extend the USB functionality between a touch screen monitor and a powered USB hub. I needed to run the cable from the monitor (hanging from the ceiling) to an adjacent wall, down the wall, across the floor, and finally to the powered USB hub. This cable run allows an uncluttered installation of the monitor AND reliable performance of the USB connection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with Wi-Fi adapter Since I can only pick up my community's wi-fi signal on one side of my condo unit near a window, I position my wi-fi adapter near the window, and use this cable to connect the adapter to my desktop computer which is about 40 feet away. There doesn't appear to be any degradation of the data transmission rate over that distance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Active USB Cable Connected the USB cable between my computer and the cable for my camera and the extended connection worked perfectly. Connection was about 19 feet and it worked as well as with just the camera cable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worked perfectly 100% satisfied I'm a CCTV installer and have issues finding a usb extension to control DVRs that don't require a driver and this product works phenomenally I will be buying more from this company

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Active Extension Cable Works I bought the extension cable to connect a Canon MF6550 Multifunction because I needed a cable longer than the standard USB 2.0 5 Meter maximum. The Canon driver would not install until I worked with Canon Tech Support who suggested using a 6 foot USB cable to connect the system to the Multifunction. Once the driver was installed I connected the system to the Multifunction using a combination of the extension cable and a standard 1M USB 2.0 printer cable. This cable combination has been and is being used successfully with text recognition, scanning and printing applications.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from does the job Allows me to run a usb wireless network adapter to my window to get signal. Does a fine job, and now I can keep my studio computer updated. No dropouts even with long run.

Questions & Answers

Does it work with my iPad charger?

Asked by: Anonymous
It would not be ideal for that application. Since this is an active extension, it will not supply the full 2.1Amp needed to properly charge the iPad. It would allow it to charge but at a much slower rate.

Can I use this to connect an external HD with a Blu-ray player to stream movies from my drive? If my external drive has additional USB ports on it, could I use a M2M USB cord to connect to this so I don't even have to unplug the HD from my CPU?

Asked by: Pariah
Our product allows USB 2.0 standard data transmissions. If your devices allow this type of transmission for video playback then the cable should work for you.

Will this Active extension cable send "touch" functionality from a PC to a IFP at 39'? I normally use a 16' usb A to B from IFP to PC to give IFP touch functionality.

Asked by: jason the USB
This will work the same way as the other actives and will send 2.0 signal the full length of the cable.
