Hi Guys
As I want to move my PC(s) away from the front of the nose, can you confirm max length / specs/ linitations/tips for those cables as well as Hub preferences.

Many things have been learned about USB lately.

Shorter distances are better

Spread the amount of USB devices evenly across USB Controllers.

Use good quality powered USB Hubs. (D-Link)

2.0 and 3.0 work fine.


I suggest using standard length USB cables into a Hub and that should be the maximum length.

As an option I have used USB Extenders and run network cables to go a bit further. Not all extenders are the same so some trial and error will be involved.
