You don't need to be limited by a standard-sized USB cable. This active USB 3.1 Gen 1 (5 Gbps) cable, better known as a USB 3.0 cable, lets you position your USB Type-B peripherals where you need them, up to 5 meters away from your computer.
Now, you can locate USB devices such as portable hard drives and external video capture devices to make better use of your workspace. This 5-meter (15-foot) cable has a built-in equalizing chip that delivers a reliable connection, with no signal loss, beyond the 3-meter limit of standard USB 3.0 cables.
The USB3SAB5M is backed by StarTech.com's 2-year warranty for guaranteed reliability.
