This lead has 20 gauge thats shielded (admittedly most cables are shielded these days)

Is this a printer cable?

So the 20 gauge shielding means that the photos & word documents that I send to my printer will print clearer & sharper right?;)

One has a higher profit margin.

stordoff

One has a higher profit margin.

but the 20 quid one comes with a harrods price tag

Is this a deal?

I've got tons of these things sitting in a very large box off various bits of kit I've bought over the years (the cables outlast the hardware) that were included in the price of the hardware, and you can pick these up for under a quid from homebargains/B&M bargains.

Who/why the hot votes?

lol down from £20, cold.

Ordered - cheers...

When will people learn "High Speed cables" are just marketing tools and don't exist.

Heat added for the massive price reduction though.

cold for overpriced product reduced to a price than can still be beaten

would be a deal if it was a usb 3.0 cable...

Voted cold.

This is DOUBLE what you pay for one on fleebay

Of course they were never worth £19.99 in the first place.

are these cheap ones on ebay orange and grey though and made by a branded supplier

read the reviews

Brilliant Value *****xannus | 22/03/2008 | See all xannus' reviews (15) … Brilliant Value *****xannus | 22/03/2008 | See all xannus' reviews (15) »This was 2.99 when i bought it but anything around that price is excellent value for this. The place i work charges 14.99 for this exact same cable! I use it for my digital camera but it can also be used for printers, scanners etc. Highly recommended.



Hot all the way baby......

No, the cheap ones are black so that they match the rest of your cables and if someone has plugged this type of cable into a digital camera I'll eat my poundland USB cable ....
Save yourself a quid, buy it from a pound shop.

The 'high speed' bit is of course total carp.

You can however make a case for a well made cable, and this appears to be such as thing. At a couple of quid it's probably worth a punt.

Not a bad price - at least belkin has good quality cables. And yes, PC words charges a **** load for them: pcworld.co.uk/gbu…tml

down to 7.99 from 17.99

I usually go to cableuniverse nowadays; you can get high quality stuff there for reasonable preices. cableuniverse.co.uk/usb…es/

lol £20 give us a break, surely its down from £20,000

Cold - it doesn't have a Laser-controlled USB Extruder or Precision 24k gold contacts like this one...

htfr.com/mor…043

I only use the best for my Binatone kit.

thanks

£3.99 now....

Golden Rule! Always base value on what they ask for it NOT what they say it was.

Just need to convince my wife now.

Ooh does this make the 0's and 1's go faster?

Had one of these for about 2 years, good cable. And I paid about £15 for it...!

Hot

£3.99 now....



And with a different RRP as well.. £9.99!

Good price but never worth £19.99

If you are not near one of those stores, it's worth paying the extra for delivery. I use loads of these cables, and the more expensive ones feel nicer to handle, but they all seem to work the same.

Dunno how long you've been using computers but Hi-Speed USB referred to the adoption of USB 2.0 back in about 2002.

I've still got an old card reader with 'Hi-Speed usb 2.0' writen on it.

usb.org/dev…20/

Never did find out if the cables needed changing but it was done as a marketing thing to show full compatibility with USB 2.

£19.99!!! don't make me laugh! Only a fool would pay that much in the first place!!!! I think the current selling price is very good though! :-) I question whether it would have ever sold for the original price!

the way i look at it is this....
you can drive a fiat punto and it will take you to work....
also you could drive volvo c30 and it would also drive you to work
the volvo would arguably drive you there more times due to the build quality
ok you may be one of those people that like to make do with 2nd rate quality and build then thats fine ...
but others like myself would rather pay a tiny bit more and have reliability

There's a bit of a difference between a car and a cable though.

A cable is not likely to cost you £1000 if its gearbox falls out, is it?

And i can't say I've ever had a USB cable fail on me. By all means pay £2 instead of £1 for a cable if you want, but £20 is the kind of profiteering that needs to be ironed out of the industry IMO.

Also of course, even when it comes to cars price does not always equal durability. £10,000 for a solidly-built Hyundai i30 base model, or £20,000 for a fragile, specced-up Renault Laguna. I know which I'd have.

Fair comment, but I don't think I've ever seen a specced-up Laguna!
