    PROS: The product works really well; Super fast
    CONS: None specified
    My father-in-law recommended this cable when I had to connect an old laser printer across the room. Plugged it in and it works. The service from Show Me was exceptional, as always. Ordered one day, got it the next. Granted, we're only 50 miles away, but we're talking U.S. Postal Service here. How do you get them to move so fast? This has to be the best company on the planet to do business with.

    I bought two of these hoping to extend both my daughters reach from their wall charger to their beds so they would stop wrecking $20 lighting cords but this extension will not work with a wall charger. They do work when attached to a computer USB port however.

    I needed to extend my keyboard to about 20 total feet. After some searching on google I found there is a distance limitation of about 15 foot for USB devices. Then I found this puppy. I ordered this cable, and it worked perfectly. I assume if you plug two of these together you can go even further than 16 foot. Thank you ShowMeCables!

Q: What kind of cable do I need for my printer?

A: Typically, printers today are connected with a USB A Male to B Male cable

Q: What if I need to extend my current USB cable past the 16 foot distance limit?

A: Because passive USB cables have a distance limitation you would need an active extension cable to help boost the signal coming from the source.

Q: I'm unsure what USB cable I need, can you help?

A: Please click on the resource tab to see the USB connector graph. This should help identify the correct cable.
