There are a number of reasons to use this cable and longer standard USB leads will not always work correctly if used alone. An active cable amplifies the signal and removes the limitation of 5m (valid regardless of USB standard) and extends that to a maximum of 12.5-13m if used in conjunction with a suitable additional lead.

Whilst I would use it for tethered studio photography, it is also useful in connecting peripherals located in one place to a PC located some distance away, for example when testing hardware, verifying data, out-of routine backups etc.

Although the cabling is not as thick or as heavy as some USB 3.0 leads, it is somewhat thicker than a typical USB 1.0/2.0 cable due to the increased number of internal connections and extra shielding. A previous reviewer appears not to be familiar with other such cables. One thing that the female end misses is its own LED indicator to prove that it is live. As that is the end to which a device is to be attached, and with the PC up to 13 metres away and possibly in another room, a local confirmation of a connection would be preferable. Without an LED, you will need to check at the PC that all is well.

I purchased this cable in order to shoot tethered from a Nikon D800 to my Windows PC or laptop.

My first impressions were good. The cable feels sturdy and everything feels altogether well built. The cable is a little thicker than the cameras cable that it'd be extending, which I find reassuring as tether cables can often take quite some abuse dragging around studio floors!

It performs well, with no noticeable drop in transfer speeds in spite of transferring large files (50mb+ image files). It's particularly impressive when used in a USB 3.0 compatible port.

The one thing that for me lowers my rating from 5 stars to 4, is that the Male USB end seems to be slightly undersized which can cause the connection to "wiggle" a little (tested in multiple ports on multiple devices), it's not enough to cause it to lose connection, but whilst using it to shoot tethered I like to just secure it with a little tape to make sure. The female end is actually very secure and I have no fears of that disconnecting.

But all in all a high quality cable that I'd have no issues recommending for any use that requires a sturdy cable that can take some use and abuse.

I use this USB 3.0 active extension cable in studio and Location photography. Works really well for the price I paid.
I tether my D800 and the usb 3.0 cable which came with my camera. Only thing is that the cable isn't as soft as the old 2.0 cable i was tethering my camera with. However this doesn't bother me since the cable is on the floor 90% of the time.

Having tried other branded, Lindy, Startech & Belkin "active" 5m cables, I'm glad to have finally found one capable of providing true USB3.0 support over a distance of 5m.
