1.0 out of 5 stars Beware who you buy this from!!!, 27 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Belkin Pro Series USB Extension Cable 3m (Personal Computers)
Before I start I should qualify my one star - THE BELKIN USB EXTENSION CABLE IS FAB - however, it seems that some of the sellers of this product are trying to palm off inferior products.

The description states that the item is Belkin, with a lifetime warranty and is packaged. Mine turned up loose, in a bag, with no branding on it at all and nothing regarding a warranty. I have numerous Belkin products and so could see immediately that this cable wasn't Belkin.

To be fair the seller responded quickly to my mail, sent me a Belkin cable, and let me keep the flaky one, however it seems very suspicious to me that the seller seems to keep making the same 'mistake'. I can only assume that they try their luck at a cheap and nasty cable and then if the buyer complains they provide the pucker one.

A nasty practice but one that would fail spectacularly if everyone stood by their rights and complained. If you get a duff cable don't just post a bad review and buy elsewhere, make these people send you what you have paid for - it's the only way that these poor practices will fade out.

I have just received a fake cable from "Regency" who must be related to Dell Boy. They said they sell 100s each day and that it was a Packer's error. Hopefully a new BELKIN USB replacement cable will be in the post.
