USB extension cable is a regular use item and has become a need of our modern sophisticated lifestyle. There are so many devices at my home and always the needs keep on changing. Recently I started a small office for completing the left out projects after discussing with my clients. There was need of printing & scanning frequently. The client’s time was precious so I could not imagine annoying them; due to delay in taking printout or scanning jobs. Every time my assistant has to walk to the printer carrying the notebook to take printouts or for scanning. I felt very pity for her when some client starts saying that,” I have to go, please wind up “. The printer couldn’t be brought to my working desk as the power connection was near to the entrance of 2nd room, where printer & other devices were kept.
One day it was extreme. In hurry while connecting the printer to the notebook, the printer fell from the table. I didn’t know what to do. Usually clients do not want to hear excuses for delay in project discussion due to failure of generic things like printer, scanner, graphical pad etc. I gave a complex answer to the delay while rotating the subject line in the project itself. He went away smiling. Both of us took a deep lungful of air and sat on the sofa looking at each other. What a blunder it was going to happen. My assistant said “Let us search for a USB extension cable and finish off the subject here.” I got excited, the solution was so simple and I was burning my head uselessly.
But I had a doubt whether such long cable of 8-9 meter will work or not. Usually long cables consume more energy resulting in data losses. But anyways I had a solution and need to implement it immediately. I directly visited to Amazon.com, as it is my all time favorite shopping destination. I hardly have a time to visit a computer shop to buy the generic goods. So I prefer mostly online shopping. I searched but the results were poor. Mostly the USB extension cable available was of 5 meter or less length, that didn’t serve my purpose. I have heard about the name Pluggable Technologies, makers of high class cable products. And I knew that they must be having something for my need. And yes I was right; I got the detail of this 10 meter USB 2.0 Active Extension Cable Type A Male to A Female. I went through the technical details and found everything as if adapted to my expectations. I showed the item to my assistant and she also commented it to be looking good. But I still had that doubt, whether it will really work or not.
In the specification it was mentioned that cable itself consumes 66mA out of 500mA. So I was little on defensive side. But I decided to try it myself. With a hope in heart I ordered the item through free 2 day fast shipping option. The item arrived right on time, about 10 minutes before schedule arrival of my important client. My assistant connected the cable to the printer. With lots of excitement I fired a test print. “Wow” both of us screamed. It worked so fast. I even tried it with scanner & adapter, and it worked well. It was a true value for money. I recommend this USB extension cable to everybody who is looking for long extension cable which can be trusted, especially when you are in hurry, huh!
