When I replaced my printer recently, I also had to replace the old-style multi-pin cable I had been using to connect it to my computer with a USB A-male to B-male cable. I could have bought one at the retailer in the six-foot length I wanted for $15. Instead, I ordered an AmazonBasics cable for less than one-third that price. For those who might be unaware, AmazonBasics is Amazon’s house generic brand of electronic and computer accessories. I’ve been using this cable for about three months now, and the only place I’ve noticed a difference is in my wallet.
The AmazonBasics printer cable is sold in 6, 10, and 16 foot lengths; I bought the six-foot cable. In all honesty, I hadn’t touched the cable between the time I plugged the printer in and today, when I unplugged it to get a more accurate description for this review. The cable is gold plated on each end (which does give you a better connection). It’s a reasonably thick cable, about 1/8" in diameter. The cable is black, and it’s firmly attached to the plug at both ends. The cable is also reasonably flexible; I could easily bend it to within 0.5” of itself. This means that the Amazon Basics cable is unlikely to get pulled out of the plug, cut, frayed, or broken. In other words, it should be pretty well immune to damage from being yanked out, stepped on, or having some bulky object placed on it.
As far as how well the AmazonBasics cable works, I’ve got no complaints. The printer prints quickly and accurately every time I send it a command to do so. Of course, having only had the cable for a few months, I can’t comment on how long it might last, However, my general experience has been that cables don’t “wear out”; it’s usually some external trauma that puts them out of commission.
The AmazonBasics cable is an inexpensive cable, not a cheap one. It’s solidly constructed and built to last. Although looks can be deceiving, in this case, it has the look and feel of a more expensive cable, and it has worked perfectly for over three months. Basically, the AmazonBasics cable is all you need.
The two on the left are the Blue and Huion USBs, respectively. The gold-plated one on the right is the Amazon plug. I don't know if there's a huge difference, but to my eyes, it looks like the Amazon USB has a wider interior than the others—which might explain why it didn't sit correctly.
I'm planning on returning one of the cables.

Versatile: It’s an A to B USB cable, with the B side fitting printers, servers, hard drives etc.
Good length: It is as advertised - 1.8m - this length requires your printer/device to be close enough to the computer. If you need a longer cable, Amazon sells a 3m-length one for 10p more.
Competitively priced: Lots of expensive as well as cheaper options out there. For me, Amazon Basics is the perfect balance of price and quality - I wouldn’t want to pay any more for a cable to be honest but yet won’t want to take any unnecessary risk by purchasing a ridiculously cheap unbranded cable that may blow up.
Cons: Not very long if your connecting devices aren’t very close. Amazon sells a 3m-length one for 10 p more.
Overall, I’ll recommend this as a good purchase.

It isn't fancy with any braiding or anything like that, but the audio interface works just as it did before, but can be moved to right under my monitor for easy access.
