From the Manufacturer


AmazonBasics USB 2.0 A-Male to Mini-B Cable

The leader for strong connections

Because USB 2.0 is widely used in connecting devices, such as external hard drives, printers, digital-photography devices and more, this USB 2.0 cable helps you maximise the performance of your peripherals. For devices with an older USB version, this cable is backward-compatible, so you can still make the connection.

What it connects

This cable features a standard Type-A USB connector on one end and a Mini Type-B connector on the other. This means that you can plug the Type-A connector in to your computer, then plug the Mini Type-B connector in to a device with a Mini Type-B port. Devices like mobile phones, MP3 players, tablets, digital cameras and digital camcorders often have Mini Type-B ports.

Solid, durable

Sturdy, with gold-plated connectors, this USB 2.0 cable is built for connecting and disconnecting over and over again without signal loss.

Details

  • Durable, gold-plated connectors
  • Backward-compatible
  • Full 2.0 USB capability/480 Mbps transfer speed

USB Version Numbers

There are different 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 that 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) all have 3.0 then you will have 3.0 speed.

In the Box

Firstly, the quality of the USB cable is excellent. If this is anything to go by I am going to buy AmazonBasic instead of branded products in the future!

However, the frustration-free packaging is a different issue. I thought that the box was way too big for just a cable, and surely a plastic wrapper in a standard sized amazon folder/package would be more than enough to protect the product. It just seems like such a waste (even though it is recyclable).

Although this is a major issue, the product itself deserves five stars. The cable feels thick enough to withstand daily usage and the gold plating on the connectors is an added bonus. Highly recommended!

AmazonBasics USB 2.0 A-Male to Mini-B Cable (1.8 Metres) [Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging] is another interconnect in Amazon's range of quality connection cables. This cable shipped in just Amazon's Certified Frustration-Free Packaging with no outer box, unlike other cables I have received in this product range which came in additional huge outer packs!

The cable is well made and has a standard USB plug on one end and a mini USB B plug on the other, so is suitable for connecting peripherals such as cameras, satnavs and external hard-drives to your computer. I use mine mainly with a Buffalo external drive, which came supplied with a short, thin cable of not much use for anything, and my TomTom. This AmazonBasic is much more useful and of much higher quality and works perfectly. Although Amazon use the term basic in the description their range of cables are of very high quality and far from the cheapest available.

I now have three cables in the AmazonBasics range, all are of excellent quality and the range is one I am likely to consider first with any further purchases. A search for AmazonBasics in Electronics & Photo will show the current range on offer, which also includes CD and DVD blank discs. There are plenty of illustrations on the Amazon product page and an informative well illustrated Manufacturers Description which shows you exactly what you get for your money. The paperwork shown in the box is the warranty.

It's a cable, it's well made, it's fair value and comes in greenish packaging with Amazon's name onboard - `nuff said!

A few older cameras of mine use this mini-USB2 lead [although unfortunately all my new cameras seem to do their own thing and you end with a large collection of almost, but not quite, identical USB2 leads]. However I bought this lead for my sons new Sony PS3 250Gb slim games console, as Sony, rather miserably, don't provide a connection lead their PS3 dual-shock controller [when bought seperately for the PS3 as a second controller]. Usefully this lead is about 48cm longer than the standard Sony USB2 recharge lead, which gives a bit more freedom when using the controller in recharge mode [rather than wireless]. This lead naturally also fits the various extras like our Logitech PS3 wireless headset/mic that relies on the Sony USB ports for power/charge, and it looks identical the original PS3 one. With its little Amazon insert this lead looks quite classy and well made, and importantly it comes in black so it matches the PS3 [whereas my first choice Belkin's otherwise excellent leads, one with a fun LED, were only on offer in grey/orange colours and so were rejected for that reason alone].

This lead fits perfectly, is inexpensive, seems at least the equal of the Belkin leads, and works well. Plus the 'basics' packaging means you can extract it easily from it's thin plastic bag [rather than the usual fight with a tough sealed plastic pod]. It arrived well packed and promptly [in a big light cardboard box]. I suppose 5*, as it fits the bill perfectly - and being a standard mini-USB2 I can use the lead for my old cameras and 2.5" external laptop hard drive cases as well.

Note: this cable is not a newer 'micro-USB2' lead that has a flatter and curved small plug shape (a micro-USB2 cable fits my son's Blackberry Bold and my Performance MX mouse - rather than this leads old style straight sided trapesium shaped mini-USB2 plug that fits the PS3, many external 2.5" laptop hard-drive cases and some older cameras).

Size: 1.8 m / 6 FeetPackage Type: Standard Packaging
This item is a fine replacement for the charging cable which comes as standard with Sony PS3 used for charging the wireless controller. It scores highly on price, build quality and also the length. Most cables with gold-plated plugs are a bit more expensive than this one. The little 'Amazon Basics' raised badge on the plug increases the perceived value and makes the cable more esoteric-looking. The plugs are well terminated and of solid construction, as is the cable which is subtantially thicker and stiffer than the Sony one. Where it really scores is that the plugs fit reassuringly snugly, with little or no play when in use. One major selling advantage I didn't even realise iniitially, was that the cable is a good bit longer than the original one ie. 1.8m instead of 1.2m. This means I can play the PS3 with the cable connected without moving closer than usual to the tv screen. It also means I now have a wider range of safe places to lay the controller down when charging but not in use. A simple solution to a problem not-previously obvious. Nice one Amazon; I will certainly look at the AmazonBasics range for other interconnects in future.
...now, how about some nice cheap, heavy multi-strand speaker cable, Amazon?
