    I've been searching and reading up on the different extension cables for the short Apple LED Displays. The consensus seems to be that the Monoprice cables are the way to go. I also found that the more expensive Dr. Bott cables also offer an USB extender (hence the increased cost).

    For those of you with dual LED ACD setups, did you just not care about using the USB hub on the displays?

    Just curious... Thanks!

    I used the monoprice one just to get my Mac Pro further away from the screen. I also bought a white Belkin USB extension cable. Any USB extension will work, or you can pay more for the Dr Bott.

    I had no idea about the Belkin cable. I figured there
    was something basic I was missing...

    Just make sure any USB cables longer than 15 feet have a repeater built in.
