    Arrow RIGHT-ANGLE micro USB cables from StarTech - any experiences out there?

    Hey everyone,

    Last week while surfing online for deals on cables, I stumbled across these nifty right-angle cables in 3 foot and 6 foot lengths!

    I've never used StarTech before.

    Does anyone have any info on Startech (good and/or bad)?

    check it out... pretty cool "right"!?

    LINKS...
    3 foot right-angle - 3 ft Micro USB Cable - A to Right Angle Micro B - StarTech.com
    6 foot right-angle - 6 ft Micro USB Cable - A to Right Angle Micro B - StarTech.com

    PICS!

    Thanks for the input.

    Anyone else?

    I think I'm going to order a 3 footer and a 6 footer of these right-angle cables!

    I just wish BOTH ends had a right-angle profile. That would make for a cleaner look when my Droid is charging in my car.

    I have two of this exact product and they work excellently! I think I got them on sale for about $3.xx/each. Great buy!

    $8 plus shipping is too high.

    Those don't angle the right way I need them to either.

    Yes - I'm noticing the same thing relative to the bevel on the micro end. It should point the opposite way for the cable to be pointing down when in portrait view, and also pointing right when in the landscape view. Weird that they are not the correct direction. What use are they? Hmmm. Perhaps the photo was "flipped"? mike

    AHHHH.... Interesting. I didn't notice that the micro end of the cable is not in a "preferred" orientation. Thanks for pointing that out!

    I don't think it's an error though. Keep in mind that these are universal cables. In other words, they weren't designed specifically with the Droid in mind. So I wouldn't consider the cables as "not the correct direction".

    They will still work very well for my little dock projects. (For myself by the way... no worries about new competition Mike!)

    Wow! Those options are great! However, the prices are rather high!

    Hmmmm... what to do.
