    Well, you really can't tell from the pics in my original post, because those two little clips would be on the long-edge of the micros connector, not the short-edge which is most visible.

    From the reviews I've seen online about StarTech cables, they apparently fit rather snug, so I would assume the little clips are present. All other StarTech micro usb cables on their site also show the clips (when the long-edge is showing in the picture).

    a little high, but it you want a clean look, 8 bucks more is worth it.

    *edit* their shipping is outrageous also. yikes...

    Thanks for the tip. I'm leaving that Moto option as a last resort. I'd like a single, complete USB cable, not just an adapter piece to plug into another USB cable.

    Yeah, so you noticed their shipping is $8.50!!! :icon_eek:
    By the way, it's not $8.00 the cable is $9.95!!! :icon_eek:

    Total cost out of pocket for a right-angle USB cable that's 5 foot long is $18.45!!!! :icon_eek::icon_eek::icon_eek::icon_eek::icon_eek::icon_evil:

    That's more than 10 times the cost of a 6' cable from monoprice (not right angle though). Using the right angle adapter and monoprice cable and you can have 3 setups for less money! Yikes! :r_c: mike

    Hey Guys,
    ezeStand is now offering the Right Angle Cable you're looking for. It routes down when the Droid is upright and right when the Droid is in the Dock mode. The Great news is that I'm offering these 6 ft Right Angle Micro USB cables for just $3.99 with free shipping when you order an ezeStand. The bad news is I have a very limited initial supply. The good news is that I have many more on order and should be available in < 2 weeks.
    Thanks for checking out ezeStand!
