Monster Cable® Digital Life™ Ultra-High Speed
7-ft. USB 3.0 cable (Type A to Type B)
Our take on the Monster Cable® Digital Life™ Ultra-High Speed by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
Monster's Ultra-High Speed USB 3.0 cable meets the data transfer and power demands of next-generation USB 3.0-equipped computers and peripherals. USB 3.0 isn't found on many devices yet, but its capabilities make it a smart choice for the most demanding data transfer applications: high-definition video, terabyte hard drives, and more.
This cable meets the USB 3.0 spec with a maximum date transfer rate of 4.8 Gbps — ten times higher than USB 2.0. USB 3.0 also provides 360% more power so you can operate power-hungry devices like big hard drives.
Heavy-duty dual-layer shielding rejects interference for more reliable data transfer. Its rugged construction ensures durability, while the flexible jacket makes connecting your digital gear easy, even in tight spaces.

Overview: The Monster Digital Life Ultra-High Speed USB 3.0 Cable offers maximum data transfer and power for USB 3.0 equipped computers and peripherals (printers, scanners, portable hard-drives, DVRs). Monster's Ultra-High Speed USB 3.0 Cable provides the reliability you need to stay connected. Heavy-duty dual-layer shielding rejects interference for smoother data transfer. It also features rugged construction for the durability you need, while the flexible jacket lets you make easy connections between your digital electronics.
USB 3.0: Monster's Digital Life Ultra-High Speed USB 3.0 Cable meets the USB 3.0 standard of 4.8 Gbps, so you are ensured maximum data transfer on even the most intensive applications, like transferring huge HD video files to your USB 3.0 equipped computer. USB 3.0 is 10x faster than USB 2.0 and offers 360% more power (1800 mA).
Ultra-High Speed Rated: The Monster Ultra-High Speed USB 3.0 Cable is ultra-high-speed rated with a 4800+ Mbps data transfer rate. The Monster Ultra-Speed USB 3.0 Cable delivers bandwidth greater than 1.5x the highest industry specification, so you can depend on fast, reliable data transfer.
USB Connectors: The USB 3.0 standard requires new connectors with additional pins; this cable features a male USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Standard-A connector on one end and a male USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Standard-B connector on the other. The SuperSpeed Standard-A connector fits in a standard USB type-A port, but the SuperSpeed pins don't make contact.

24k Gold Contacts: The Monster USB 3.0 Cable features 24k gold contacts to maximize signal transfer and prevent against corrosion.
