I'm reorganizing my HTPC setup to add a second pc but I'd like to keep my external drives where they are. It will be about 8-10 foot run total with about 3 feet for the USB hub (powered) and another 5-7 feet for the extension. Both cables are shielded. According to the standard I should be good up to 16 feet (5m), but I was wondering if anyone had experience with long USB cable runs and if they noticed any degradation either in the form of slower speed or corrupted data. Thanks.
