    USB 3.0 extension cable

    Hi all,

    Today I got my TX 458 delivered and a wheel stand pro. One big drawback, the usb cable is a bit short. I have to sit very close to my 55inch screen and that is a bit to large for such small distance.
    So I need an USB extension cable. Does anybody know if this has to be a USB 3.0 cable or will a USB 2.0 be ok as well. The price tag of an USB 3.0 is a bit high compare to USB 2.0. I'm looking for a 5mtr cable.

    Anybody an idea.

    Yeah but does it has to be an USB 3.0 or will a 2.0 be fast enough? Data transfer wise.

    i'm no expert, but data transfer for a peripheral shouldn't require USB 3.0.

    2.0 should be fine.

    edit: actually, since it's an extension (because the TX has a dumb hard-wired lead), are you *sure* you need 5m? i play on a 55" screen as well, and while i could understand sitting a little further back than the included 6ft cable permits, sitting 22ft away seems a bit extreme. To each their own if that's the case; I just wanted to make sure you'd thought that through

    You're right. 3mtr is more than enough. I ordered a 3mtr that is 9ft if I'm correct.

    So I thought I needed an extension so I could sit on my couch and race, so I ordered a 9' usb3.0 extension from Amazon for around $7. Then I decided I liked sitting close to the screen. Go figure.
