PostSubject: Usb Extension Cables For Hard To Reach Devices   Mon Nov 14, 2011 3:42 pm




With USB extension wires so reasonably priced it's a surprise that right now there aren't more people getting these given that they're very useful. Think of a time you were supposed to do something on your computer which could have been easier with an extension cable. Possibly it was an occasion in the home when you had to print something and you were required to bring your inkjet printer over to your personal computer to do so.

It would appear that if you buy a peripheral such as a scanner or perhaps inkjet printer it comes with an USB extension cable which is too short. Most units come equipped with the cable that is simply a couple of feet long that makes it rather restrictive whenever connecting devices to your PC. Additionally, it often means that you'll have a rather messy table with many of your devices needing to be close by.



It is possible to get USB extension cables at any kind of electronics shop and also even in good supermarkets nowadays, and they cost as little as $5. Generally you'll find them around nine ft long, although they are offered in more lengths. A longer cable makes it lot more useful when utilizing such things as printers as well as scanning devices, particularly if they are being shared by other computers.

If you have several computers sharing such devices you might want to think about setting up a network. However usually it is not essential for a family at home. On the other hand, an office building would likely benefit from the local network. Using a network where other personal computers and also devices link to a host, computers could share data as well as devices and without ever having to move them around.

Generally Ethernet or USB extension wires are going to be used for hooking up computer devices to the principal hub or host as workplaces can be very large. Because of Windows plug and play feature, it is really effortless to connect printers and other units to the main hub. Configuring peripherals requires very little time because you will simply have to set up the host PC which all the other personal computers communicate with.

USB extension cables need no external energy to operate which make them convenient to use. If you look around, you'll find that everything from cameras, external drives, web-cams and voice over IP phones are usually linked using USB cables, thus it seems sensible to have an extra cable just in case one goes amiss. While the future seems in favor of wireless technology, it'll be a long time that this becomes common and takes over the usage of cables.
