Product Description

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.

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: 0.9 m / 3 FeetPackage Type: Standard Packaging 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: 2.7 m / 9 FeetPackage Type: Frustration-Free Packaging Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Good quality, sturdy cable. The gold connectors have a snug fit between my printer and computer. 9ft length means plenty of room to position, move the printer and cable tie the excess off if in a fixed position. Much better than my old grey cable. It comes in a great quality, solid cardboard box so should arrive in pristine condition.

Size: 0.9 m / 3 FeetPackage Type: Standard Packaging Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Sturdy cable that looks like it will survive many rounds of being plugged and unplugged. The plastic moulding looks decent and tough, and the connectors fit well. I use it on a USB 3 hub without any problems. It's good for the price. Comes in a simple brown cardboard box (None of that horrendous blister packaging!).

Size: 2.7 m / 9 FeetPackage Type: Frustration-Free Packaging Verified Purchase
On the strength of the reviews here I purchased this (9ft, 2.27m) to connect to an external hard drive. I'm pleasantly surprised with the quality. As others have said, this cable is quite thick, the connectors look fine and appear quite strong, I doubt they'll break anytime soon.

The most important thing though is what's the speed like? Some other USB cables on here have bad reviews because they are very slow. Using CrystalDiskMark with my ICYBox external HD the WD Green 2TB HDD shows a sequential read speed of 121.4MB/s and a write speed of 117.7MB/s. This compares very favourably with SATA 3.0 speeds for a WD Green HDD.

So I'm very happy with the speed achieved with this cable. Highly recommended. Next time I need a USB cable I'll definitely buy Amazon Basics.

Size: 2.7 m / 9 FeetPackage Type: Frustration-Free Packaging 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.

Well, what to say....it's a USB cable. It works. The moulding and connectors are good quality, like all Amazon Basics cables I've tried. Easy to plug in (smooth finish) unlike the cheap poundland cables. Easy packaging too, of course, no messing about.
