Default 3.0 OTG cable

I was just browsing Amazon, and ran across a 3.0 otg cable. Has anyone got this? Just wondering if it is any faster than a regular cable?

I think I might get it, since my ferret decided to use mine as a chew toy.

It'll only be faster if you're using a USB 3.0 peripheral (e.g. flash drive). Given that USB 3.0 external hard drives are more common than USB 3.0 flash drives, this won't be a benefit for most people. 99% of flash drives in people's pockets are USB 2.0, which means whether they use this cable or the normal microUSB (USB 2.0) version, they're still going to be reading and writing at USB 2.0 speeds.
