AmazonBasics AmazonBasics USB 3.0 Extension Cable - A-Male to A-Female - 9.8 Feet (3.0 Meters) Brand : AmazonBasics
AmazonBasics USB 3.0 A-Male to A-Female Extension Cable
Moves your USB ports to where you want them
USB ports on your computer, TV, external hard drive and other devices can be hard to reach. This extension cable brings the port to you. If the USB cable which you are using to connect two devices with eachother is just too short, this extension cable gives you the length you need. It is great for connecting flash drives and flip-out USB drives that you see on some camcorders.
No more climbing under the desk
If you’ve ever had to crawl on hands and knees to try to access USB ports behind your computer, you need this extension cable. The USB port can now come to you.
Durable - made for lots of connections
We know that USB devices get plugged in and out many times. This is why the extension cable has gold-plated connector ends that protect the cable and the connectors. The gold-plating also offers protection against noise that comes from electromagnetic or radio-frequency signals and thus keeps your signal clear with less loss of bandwidth. The AmazonBasics USB 3.0 Extension Cable supports the full USB 3.0 standard with a transmission speed of up to 625 MBps, so you can take advantage of the full performance of your peripherals and devices.
- Extends USB connections between your computer and devices like printers, digital cameras, video games, keyboards, mice and flash drives up to 3 m.
- Gold-plated connectors for signal protection and corrosion resistance.
- Features USB 3.0 A-Male to A-Female connectors.
- Dimensions: 9.8 feet / 3.0 m
- Transfer Rate: up to 625 MBps
How it works
Plug the male end of the cable into the USB port on your device (like your computer).
Now you can plug in a USB cable from a device (like a camera) into the female end of the extension cord instead of the USB port.
Extra things to know:
Remember, this is an extension cable, not a USB cable. It's the same principle as when you plug a lamp into an electrical extension cable. You'll be connecting a device with an existing USB cable to this cable, and then this cable connects to the device with the USB port.

But yeah, it does what I need it to do. What else can I say?
So many good reviews -- and I saw one review -- they did a data transfer test like me, got good results though (what up with that???????).
It's not worth the energy to return. Thoughts: Amazon should take their good name off this cable.
UPDATE: my bad. This cable is just fine. What I learned: 3 meters is pretty close to max length per USB 3.0 spec. So, without a repeater, you won't be able to use a cable of any significant length in conjunction with this extension cable. I initially tested with a native USB cable about 1 meter long -- and adding this 3 meter extension resulted in a total length of 4 meters -- too long for reliability in USB 3.0. So of course i experienced dropped signal, poor performance, and such.
Tip: if you're not using a repeater, only plug this cable into a cable that is a few inches long (a mini), or else you'll likely get faults.
Weird that USB 2.0 spec allowed for longer cables than USB 3.0 spec, but there it is.
Websearch: "USB 3.0 cable max length" for more info
But the fittings were not flush. Thinking my product was defective, I ordered a replacement, but the usb female end on the replacement product on this one was also not deep enough to fully plug in any male usb cord I own. See photo.
Don't know if this matters, but only time I have seen that ever re: usb devices.
