  • easy to use, only needs 4 wires, USB 1.1 speeds

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - Very easy to use. Really nothing complicated here.

    - Has small LEDs on both devices which show that they are powered.

    - Only needs 4 wires (2 pairs) of the UTP cable to work - wires 1-2 and 3-6

    Cons:

    - The LEDs are behind some not very transparent plastic so not very bright.

    - No USB 2.0 speed (480 mbit), only USB 1.1 speed. This is not a problem for keyboards, mice, probably for standart VGA USB cameras too. Don't expect high trhoughput if you connect USB flash drives though.

    OtherThoughts:

    - Don't expect this to show as a USB device, it doesn't work that way. It is not like the USB-HUB extenders.

    - Don't try a crossover ethernet cable!

    - Would be nice if it had a connector for external power on the remote end.

    Bottomline:

    Nice, small, not expensive. Would be even better if it supported USB 2.0 speed, but...
