USB 3.0 A Male to B Male Cable - Gold Plated Connectors, 3 Feet, Blue. It’s amazing how the tech world keeps improving on speeds which already seem nearly-impossible. That’s what’s happened as new USB specifications have been implemented throughout the 21st century. The original 1.5 Mbps data transfer rate of USB 1.0 was terrific compared to most earlier serial connections, but USB 1.1 and its high-speed 12 Mbps seemed breathtaking, USB 2.0’s 480 Mbps was a revelation - and the 5 Gbps transfer rate of USB 3.0 is simply amazing. To handle that kind of speed, you need a special kind of cable: the Cmple kind. And our USB 3.0 A Male to B Male cable is built for speed. It’s designed to connect your printers, external hard drives and other peripherals with USB 3.0 “B” connectors to your computer or any other device with a USB 3.0 “A” connector. One very important note: the use of “A” and “B” connectors isn’t standardized across the industry and the jacks for each are quite different, so it’s crucial that you check your equipment so you know which type of connector cable you need. We built our USB 3.0 A-to-B cable based on impedance-matched twisted pair construction, the best way to minimize all interference and crosstalk and ensure that your super-speed transfer is completed perfectly, without data loss. We also use gold-plated connectors on both ends of the cable, which will eliminate the possibility of noisy connections while also preventing the corrosion common with the connectors on lesser cables. The molded construction and sturdy PVC jacket also adds to the quality of this cable, letting it take a beating without compromising the wires inside. And if you’re connecting to an older device, the cable is backward compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1. Cable quality is very important when it comes to USB 3.0 computer connections, because the data transfer rate for USB 3.0 is ten times faster than the older USB 2.0 it replaced, allowing you to transfer huge amounts of data or video files at lightning speeds if your cable can handle the bandwidth. Quality is also crucial for serious gamers who use a hub to connect all of their controllers and other devices to a PS4, Xbox One or other gaming console. USB 3.0 makes any gaming experience much more responsive and enjoyable; if your system or hub uses USB 3.0 B, this cable is perfect for the job. This cable is available in several length as well. 1.5 feet, 3 feet, 6 feet A full look at the specifications of the Cmple 3-foot USB 3.0 A male to B male cable: USB 3.0 A male to B male cable Compatible with USB 3.0/2.0/1.1 Uses USB 3.0 SuperSpeed technology to support transfer rates up to 5 Gbps, ten times faster than USB 2.0 technology Impedance matched twisted-pair construction minimizes cross talk and interference for error-free transmission Gold-plated connectors Length: 3 feet Color: Blue There’s no way you can compromise on cable quality when you’re dealing with data transfer at speeds up to 5 Gpbs - after all, if the cable won’t handle the bandwidth, what’s the point?
