Ordered a 2.5 hard drive in a IcyBox to the rear USB 3.0 ports to connect to have to climb under the desk every time without the cable. Have the cable is connected and was extremely surprised at the low data throughput. I clasp the plate directly, with an average size of files are copied 95,000 kb, I use the cable, the data throughput decreases to about 21,000 kb, ie lower than the USB 2.0 port. Furthermore, the computer then repeatedly loses the Connect to the plate, which is not also happens without cable. I then me another cable from AmazonBasics ordered and behold, with this cable, it works well with the data throughput, at a length of 2 meters, the throughput is reduced merely to 92,000 kb, and I can live with. I would take from the purchase of this cable distance. The AmazonBasics cable is not 2 more expensive, but it works.
