is the female end of the USB2.0 Extension Cable

one peripheral USB cable to the extension.

cable as it is sometimes called does as it's
implies and extends or repeats the length of
the standard usb cable, or the length of data
signal to its destination peripheral or hub.

GM-800-5M USB 2.0 Extension Cable Testimonial
is as SIMPLE does! All you have to know about
USB is how to plug
it into your USB Port and the
usb2.0 extension cable takes care of the rest.
I tested this with my PhotoSmart printer and
cable. I was in the living room and the printer
in the kitchen, about 20 feet away. I very
simply connected the female end of the repeater
to the USB printer cable and the male end to
my laptop, printed a document in no time flat
just as if I was connected directly to the
printers USB cable. This opens up possibilities
for me as I work out of my living room.
This is a home office must and will certainly allow you more
options when it comes to setting up a home office with your USB
peripherals. I would certainly recommend this product to those
who need to extend their USB cable and signal.
