USB 3.0 Slow? How to Spot Fake USB 3.0 Cable

USB 3.0 Slow? How to Spot Fake USB 3.0 Cable

You have heard of fake apple accessories such us fake IPhone cable, charger sand headphones. Some of the fake cables are so well made that it is hard to tell apart.  But have you recently bought a USB 3.0 Cable.

USB 3.0 is fairly new to most people but it has been around for over six years now, its just that now more and more computers and devices starting to use the technology. USB 3.0 is in a way a USB 2.0 except it supports super speeds up to 10X faster that a USB 2.0. The USB 3.0 makes transferring files  a lot faster, especially between a USB 3.0 Flash Drive like PNY Turbo 64GB USB 3.0 drive (P-FD64GTBOP-GE) and a Galaxy S5 which also supports USB 3.0

Recently I bought few USB 3.0 Cables from eBay and I mostly used it as a Charging cable but one day I wanted to transfer photos of my Galaxy S5 and to my surprise it was taking forever. I did transfer photos off the phone before with the original Samsung USB cable but as far as I could remember it was pretty fast, and now extremely slow.

Same day one of the cable broke and I was trying to fix it and I saw that there were only 4 cables connected and not 9 like it supposed to be. Now I knew that the eBay seller sold me a fake USB 3.0 Cable. The cable looks like a USB 3.0 which is indicated by the Blue connector but in fact it was just standard USB 2.0 Cable.

Allot of companies have large stocks of USB 2.0 Cable but there is no more demand for it. In order to minimize their loses they started to replace the ends so that they look like USB 3.0 and adding them to existing 4 wire cables just so that they can unload their inventory. Luck for us there is now a way to tell if you have purchased a fake USB 3.0 Cable, Take a look in the Video.

For next time make sure you buy your cable from a good source.

Is Now the Time To Buy Older Apple Products?

Older Ipad Products – Old Ipad Vs, New Ipad

Is Now the Time To Buy Older Apple Products?

 The quality of Apple’s technology is unquestionable. The problem for many people, however, is the cost of this technology. Not everyone can drop $899 for a computer or $399 for a new iPad that doesn’t even have 3G/4G technology equipped with it. Apple also has a quality reputation, which means even older apple product is going to have a strong resale value. Could now be the time to invest in an older piece of Apple technology? If you do, what do you sacrifice?

 

Let’s Take a Look At the Case of the Apple iPad

 Thanks to the efforts of my toddler and her glass of water, I was unexpectedly in the market for a new iPad not so long ago. I’d been one of those guys who waited in line to purchase the first ones when they hit the market, so it had been a pretty decent run. I was excited about getting the retina display on the 4th generation model, but then I realized if I bought the brand new iPad, I’d have to purchase a cord adaptor because of the new lightning connection.

 

So I took a breath, took a look at my options, and decided that the basic iPad 4 that was priced at $399 was the right choice to make. Apple told me it would take 2 weeks to send me the product, which was 2 weeks I didn’t have because I use my iPad for music production and had work that was due. So off to the store I went… where they were going to charge me an extra $150 for the exact same product.

That wasn’t going to happen. I needed options and fast.

What About Going With an Apple iPad 2?

As much as I’d love to say that I had the new iPad 4 with the A6X processor and the 4G LTE service, I knew this purchase didn’t make sense for me. Here were my reasons:

  • There is no 4G LTE service where I live out in the country.
  • I really had no use for Siri because I run videos and music software from my iPad when I’m not streaming music or baseball games.
  • I already had a bunch of MIDI connectors that wouldn’t work with the 30 pin to lightning adaptor, which meant having to purchase new cords.

And so, as the fates would have it, the store was running a sale on the iPad 2 that day, making it cheaper than what I could pick up a refurbished iPad 3 for and it was new out of the box. That’s the decision I made and it’s been a good one! I was back in business immediately and I’ve got no complaints.

So what did I sacrifice by going with an iPad 2? First there’s the lower overall graphics level, but from a real-user standpoint it’s not that much and barely noticable. I get HD baseball broadcasts that look as good as on my PC and I can send them to my TV through my Google Chromecast. Netflix and Hulu don’t have the upgraded playback capability anyway, so those movies on the iPad 4 look almost the same as they do on the iPad 2. That’s really no sacrifice!

The one true sacrifice, therefore is speed. The iPad 4 is cranked up and twice as fast as the iPad 3… which is faster than my new iPad 2. On the other hand, I got my new iPad for less than $300 and that’s a price that is nice – especially when you’ve got a toddler who likes to throw water on things and touch every gadget that i own. It may be an older piece of Apple technology, but the price was right, it is the 30 pin adaptor which works with everything I have, and it does what I need it to do. Maybe it’s time for you to buy older Apple products too.
