After a nasty drive corruption on my external USB 3.0 Orico box I thought the drive had gone faulty. The SMART read errors were mounting daily and alarmingly. It finally came down to the cable and I ordered this "basic" cable which is actually pretty good quality. The daily errors ceased immediately. It's therefore worth making sure that any USB 3 cable you put before any HDD is of good quality and bear in mind that if you do get the read errors or corruption it could just be that. I am surprised that my cable just went duff overnight, it doesn't get moved or kicked or damaged where it is so it's a bit of a lesson for me.
Cable here is good and I've bought a USB 3 essential from their basic range before and was impressed enough to go for this.

This is an unbiased review.

This is a superb cable some manufacturers offer a flimsy lightweight and often low quality cables. However Amazon basics is synonymous with quality and this is no exception.

The heads of the cables are firm thick plastic with absolutely no sign of warping and are so robust that I’m sure will last the test time.

The cable itself is clad in thick rubber which was not as flexible as some models does provide extra protection and robustness. As a further benefit of the cable is very unlikely to kink due to its thickness.

Where the cable meets the head there is a very secure joy of found that some cables come loose at this point whether this model shows no sign of this likely to happen.

I replaced an older model with this new cable and I have to say there are no more dropouts on my USB external drive thanks to this cable unable to get the highest amount of data throughput.

I would say that given the price there is nothing comparable for the type of quality you have here go ahead and buy one not be disappointed

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!).

Worked exactly as expected.

I am using it to hide a 4TB hard drive away from my living room where my Xbox One sits (other AV equipment is hidden away). The length was key for this. The only thing to note is the cable is a little thicker than the free cables that normally come with USB 3.0 devices. Also, the Amazon logo sits in a little bubbled label on the A side (e.g. part that connects to the computer). This might be a concern if your computer's motherboard doesn't have loads of space but you should be able to swap cables around to make this work.

Bought to replace a device lead of similar length that appears to be currently missing. There were no qualms as longer versions of the same product had been previously purchased. Unlike an older version, the contacts are now gold-plated which denies their 'Basic' description.

Works immediately and as it should, and a repeat purchase would be a certainty as and when the need arises. Several others were purchased some time after the original review was written.

Normally when I see 'basics' in the name it signifies lower quality goods but this simply isn't the case with this cable! It came well packaged, has gold plated connectors and the cable itself feels like decent quality. No problems at all with my USB 3 devices. Very satisfied and 100% recommend!

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.

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.
