Belkin USB Extension Cable Reviews

Reviewed by 4 customers


unfortunately being only USB 1.1


from Bangkok  -  Quality Oriented

Being only USB 1.1, it's uses are limited. For tethered shooting, it's usefulness is restricted to time-lapse shooting but low bandwidth seriously limits usefulness.


Just get it !


from New York, NY  -  Quality Oriented

The cable is amazing, if you like shooting tethered get couple of these, you will never regret it.


Works as advertised


from Portland, OR  -  Quality Oriented

USB cable used to reposition laser printer to other side of my office. No installation great.


Shooting Tethered?


from Los Osos, CA  -  Quality Oriented

Powered USB cable allows the 16' rule to be broken when attaching digital camera to computer while shooting tethered. I shoot using two 16' cables, and the 6' cable to camera. Allows a lot of flexibility.
