Looking to purchase best tethering cords for DSLR tether

Postby NNN634678863745000609 » Thu Jan 03, 2013 8:04 am

I am looking to purchase the highest quality tether cord for the Nikon D3X and Canon 5dmk2.
I have gone through a fair share of brands and varieties but am interested to hear what has worked best for other professionals. I recently purchased the tether tools cord and it was working fantastically but had a shockingly small life span so I feel uncomfortable ordering another one...I've found that the tether tools cord works better with the Nikon than the Canon (although what doesn't?)
any brand recommendations or models would be helpful. I also use a powered USB Hub and am open to recommendations for that..and if anyone had an idea of how frequently they replace their tether cord? Trying to get an idea of what a somewhat "average" lifespan is-hard to tell, I know.
Any feedback is appreciated!

I've found that the usb cable direct from Canon works the best. Although they are overpriced.
I also like the IO Gear repeater.
