'lo all,

Have any of you had any previous experience in using USB Extension cables? such as click here

It's quite possible that I'm going to need to use one at a point in the not so distant future, and just wondered if anyone had encountered any problems when using them - or had any brand recommendations.

I've recently bought one and it works with no problems on a webcam. Best to get a USB2 lead tho' as they will work with either USB1 or 2 and are (allegedly) better quality than USB1

I use a 5m extention for my bb modem - - -and in the past used a 5m one for my webcam, with no problems at all. I did try 2 x 5m with webcam which didn't work. Not sure if there is a difference in a usb1 extention and a usb2 one. Bought mine for a fiver from ebay a couple of years ago.
