AmazonBasics USB 3.0 A to B Cable

The AmazonBasics USB 3.0 A-Male to B-Male Cable with Gold-Plated Connectors gives you full performance and the fastest transfer speeds possible with your USB enabled devices.

The USB 3.0 technology adds a new transfer mode called "SuperSpeed" (SS) that is capable of transferring data at up to 5 Gbit/s (625 MB/s), which is more than ten times faster than USB 2.0 technology. Use this cable when you want the fastest transfer speeds between your computer and an external device.

What It Connects

This cable features a standard Type-A USB connector on one end and a standard Type-B connector on the other. For example, you can plug the Type-A connector into your computer, then plug the Type-B connector into a device with a Type-B port. Printers, servers, external hard drives, and digital-photography devices often have Type-B ports.

Interpreting USB 3.0 Technology

If your computer has a 2.0 USB port, your cable is 3.0, and your printer is 3.0, you will achieve 2.0 speed. If all three (computer, cable, and printer) all have 3.0 then you will have 3.0 speed.

Details

  • High-speed multi-shielded USB 3.0 A-Male to B-Male cable
  • Backwards compatible with high speed USB 2.0 devices as well as USB 1.1
  • Constructed with corrosion-resistant, gold-plated connectors for optimal signal

Solid and Durable

Sturdy, with gold-plated connectors, this USB 3.0 cable is built for connecting and disconnecting over and over again without signal loss.

Size Name: 6 feet / 1.8 m Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I needed this as my current USB cable is not long enough to connect my MacBook to my printer adequately. I have to position the MacBook sideways on the desk when printing. This 1.8 M cable is of a good length, meaning now, I don't have to move anything. It's of a good quality and comes neatly packaged in a small cardboard box which was posted through my letter box as I wasn't in for the delivery.

This is a good quality cable, as it is well made, has gold plated tips and works well where we have needed. A keenly priced cable, it has the nice touch of the Amazon logo – not over the top and adds to Amazon own branded range.

This is the perfect cable for connecting your digital cameras, card readers, USB hubs, etc. If you're looking for a longer cable to replace a proprietary one for your USB accessories using the mini-b connection, or need a good quality spare give these a shot.

Size Name: 3 feet / 0.9 m Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
You would use this cable to connect a scanner or printer directly to your pc via usb. Having used Amazon Basic’s items before I can happily say they are anything but basic.

It comes shipped in Amazon’s frustration free packaging that is exactly that. There’s no fancy stuff here, just a neat brown box and a label. I wish more retailers would package their products this way.

The cable itself is very well constructed and feels premium in hand. The usb connectors are both solid and don’t feel as though the cable will break away after a few months use.

The connectors themselves are gold plated though I have never had any problem with regular ones, I assume these will be optimum for data transfer and last longer in terms of corrosion resistance before they fail..

USB the cable is backwards compatible with 2 and 1 etc and it had no problems at all with my scanner. The benefit of superspeed/usb 3 being that where supported you will get faster throughput such as an external hard drive caddy for instance you’d really see the benefit.

An exceptionally well built cable that performs as it should at a fair price.

Perfectly functional 3ft long USB 3.0 A to B lead at a very affordable price. Not sure what difference the gold makes apart from it lasts longer and won't tarnish. I keep the cable to connect to a variety of different devices requiring a USB 3.0 B standard socket. Can't really say much more. Happy with purchase and it's a functional piece of kit.

Size Name: 9 feet / 2.75 m Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
There's nothing basic about this cable. It's a well made decent length cable (I got the 2.7m one) that delivers at a fraction of the price of one bought on the high street. I got it to replace an older cable that had developed a fault between my printer and PC and quite simply it works

It's backwards compatible with USB2 so even if you haven't got the latest equipment to connect at the moment it's future-proofed should you decide to upgrade in the future.

Amazon Basics have become by 'go to' supplier for most recent cable purchase as they provide good quality cables at a reasonable price

An added bonus, their frustration free packaging means no blister packs or wasteful packaging to dispose of as it comes coiled neatly in a small box that is easily disposed of in recycling.

As always with Amazon Basics products, this cable came in excellent packaging - a simple to open, sturdy little cardboard box that fits through the letterbox. The cable has the orange Basics logo on it, but it's not too obtrusive.

The cable itself is good quality, performs as it should and has decent transfer speeds. It's very handy for connecting devices to your laptop, PC or USB charger plug, and given the length of the cable I chose (2.75 meters), it is especially useful for long range connections. For example, if you have your TV on the chimney breast and want it connected to an external hard drive down on a cupboard, this is a good choice of cable.

I have no complaints about this product - it's a well-functioning item at a reasonable cost.

Dependable quality and first class performance at a sensible price and simple, recyclable packaging.

A USB 3.0 lead that can be used to link your PC to any device with a USB 3.0 'B' Standard socket. If you are not sure what this is check the image I've uploaded to note the differences in the 'B' standard plug between USB 2 and USB 3. All USB 3 plugs and sockets have a blue plastic inlay.

Don't be confused by the 'backwards compatibility' claim. You can only use this lead with a USB 3 device, BUT you CAN plug your device into an older USB socket on your computer and it will work, albeit at a lower data transfer rate. You cannot use this lead with a USB 2 device - as the plug on the device side is too big to fit into the socket on the device. Only the plug on the computer side is compatible with both USB 2 and 3.

So do NOT buy this lead if your device is an older USB 2 device as it will not fit.

Arrives well packaged. Inside the box is good value USB 3.0 cable with gold plated connectors for a better connection. The 'funny end' is a USB 3.0 standard B cable and is usually meant to attach a usb item to a device. It's like a USB 2.0 standard B plug too and both will work. These cables, because the are physically alike, use colour coding to distinguish between USB 3.0 and 2.0. This USB 3.0 standard B is blue.

In use it works fine. It's a nice length not too long or short and a good price. Lots of cheapos this one is durable. The quality of a cable is important to get he best performance form ones device.
