Basic not budget!

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.
