Perfect for what I needed... one to the front and one to the back.
As many of the new laptops have all connections on the side instead of the rear it makes a mess on worktop with lines sticking straight out.
Works great on my laptop, I can plug my external usb hard drive in without the cord sticking out so far it gets in the way.
If you need to get cords out of the way from your laptop these little adapters are great.
These work very well in tight spaces.
I understand the limitations here, but because of the bulk and shape of these, I found them difficult to use in their application.
And that's fine, sometimes it happens.but wait there is more....Worse part, when I went to return it Amazon says "This item isn't eligible for return."so....
The connector with the orientation I needed had a defective female usb 2 port that would not accept a male usb 2 plug that works fine in the other connector and my mac ports.
Of course I wanted the left and got 0 of those.
They could have made the adapter smaller to fit...barely.
