USB is meant to be cost-effective, not cheap. Quality is important not only for ease of use, but also for consumer safety and security.
USB-IF reminds everyone to purchase compliant USB products from trusted sources that display USB-IF certified logos on packaging, in product briefs or on the cable or device itself.
USB-IF certified products have passed rigorous compliance and interoperability tests to ensure the best possible consumer experience. Next time you are shopping for products that feature USB, look for the USB-IF certified logo. For more information, visit www.usb.org.
