Top critical review

Needed a longer lead to use with a USB3 external drive.
What I DID NOT NEED was a cable that runs at less than half the speed of the 1 metre lead shipped with the drive.
I copied a 3.2GB folder of images twice with each cable. The Toshiba original took 1m 24sec (c 38 MB/s) while the Amazon own-brand took 3 minutes (< 18 MB/s).
I have c 0.5 TB of data that I want to synchronise on a regular basis. I bought a USB3 drive to do this at speed, so a half-speed lead is pretty pointless. The only saving grace is that it's so cheap I can just give it Oxfam without losing much. Disappointed with Amazon though.
