Source for Printrboard Shielded USB Cable?

Postby jeromedayton » 2014-Jan-Fri-20-Jan

It's been suggested to use a shielded usb cable for the printrboard to reduce the possibility of data loss and the resulting print stoppage. I did a web search and I'm not finding anything I believe is suitable. Can someone point me to a source?

Thanks

I think the suggestion is off-base. Just use a decent quality cable. USB is quite resistant to such issues and shielding isn't going to help.
