Because USB 2.0 is widely used to connect devices such as external hard drives, printers, digital-photography devices, and more, this USB 2.0 cable helps you maximise performance for your peripherals. For devices with an older USB version, this cable is backwards compatible so you can still make the connection.
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 and servers often have Type-B ports.
Sturdy, with gold-plated connectors, this USB 2.0 cable can be disconnected and reconnected time and time again without signal loss.
There are a number of different USB version numbers (1.0, 1.1, 2.0, and 3.0). This indicates their transfer speed. The higher the version number, the faster they can work. However, to get the full power, the "host", the device and the cable must have the same version. If not, the lowest USB version in the chain will control the speed.
For example,if your computer has a 2.0 USB port, your cable is 3.0, and your phone is 3.0, you will achieve 2.0 speed. If all three (computer, cable and phone) have 3.0 then you will achieve 3.0 speed.
USB 2.0 Type-A Male to Type-B Male Cable.

This cable does the job well, being long enough to connect most units to my computer but not too long that it gets in the way or tangles itself up. Read morePublished on 24 Mar. 2011 by Kris
