In establishing the network I have been setting up at work I have had the need for various STA extension cables. The cables I was using were just way too small and way too far away from where they needed to be so I turned to the ever trustful Startech to meet my needs. If you have never heard of Startech before then suffice to say they are one of the finest online stores for networking goods. Superb value and service every time, I have never had a problem with them and this is another example of a fine , very fine, product.
This device comes in at 50cm long which, chances are, is going to be long enough for 99% of users. It certainly was for me and it provides that extra extension you need. You can get longer cables from other brands but obviously the need to measure what you need is essential but I honestly cant forsee any occasion when you would need an extension longer than 50cm.
The extension cable gives people constructing networks and complicated systems like me, that freedom to work with more room and I found that was one advantage as was the fact that it meant I could move my devices around more. More than anything else, this device was very liberating.
Indeed, speaking of space this is of the Slimline range and this means connections and wires are thinner meaning less clutter and more room for manoeuvre. This is ideal as I am finding out networks need a lot of wires and computing equipment require a lot of wires so this was a blessing in disguise. I bought if for one thing, and found out it benefits me so much more. It was only £20
The connections are strong, the cable is made of durable material and as with everything with StarTech will last long. It supports very fast data transferral, wont slow anything down and thus far has been a very high performance cable that I have had no issue with at all.
A fantastic little device that has helped me in more ways that one!
