Does What it's supposed to!

Strengths of the product

Got this cable to extend the connection of a DSLR to laptop. Works Great. Got another to extend PS3 cable when recharging the controllers battery. Works well in both cases.

Weaknesses of the product

It won't make up for underpowered USB ports. If you've got low power USB slots this cable probably won't let you put a printer or external hard drive 5 meters away. But that's really not the cables fault.

Additional Comments

It works... if you need one go buy it.

Depends on your computer's USB port

Strengths of the product

Extends USB cable length
Easy to install, no drivers

Weaknesses of the product

Can be finnicky. If you have weak voltage out your USB port (as many laptops and some older computers do) it's not going to work well. I purchased one of these for work to connect a computer to a printer 6m away. It worked poorly with a 6-yr-old P4 but worked well with a newer computer.

Additional Comments

Does as well as any extender is going to do. The limitation is going to be your USB port.

Does not work with my printer

Strengths of the product

None.

Weaknesses of the product

Does not work with my Epson photo printer.

Additional Comments

All documents would start to print, then would stop printing and cause the printer to go haywire. Took this cable out and used a normal cable without the active extension module, and printer works now.
