ok,

i was hoping to use a longer USB cable and my .5 meter Kimber PBJs

my computer is in the next room,

will a long cable cause a lot of issues?

It might work, but I'd be worried about dropouts and such seeing as it is right at the maximum rated length for USB. If you can afford to shave off a few feet I would do that just to be safe.

The USB standard says 5 m max.

At $3.93 I would run the "risk"
