The Tripp Lite U324-006 A-Male to A-Female USB 3.0 Extension Cable brings significant performance enhancements to the ubiquitous USB standard while remaining compatible with the billions of USB-enabled devices currently deployed in the market. SuperSpeed USB will deliver 10 times the data transfer rate of USB 2.0, up to 5Gbps, as well as improved power efficiency. USB 3.0 utilizes a bi-directional data interface rather than USB 2.0's half-duplex arrangement, where data can only flow in one direction at a time, giving a 10-fold increase in theoretical bandwidth. This male to female USB extension cable uses sync-n-go technology to reduce the waiting time and it also lets your device work more efficiently. This cable is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 devices, so it will work with older equipment. With this Tripp Lite U324-006 A-Male to A-Female USB 3.0 Extension Cable, you will be ready for the new generation of USB 3.0 peripherals.
