  • 5M USB active extender

    posted by shadowncs on 10/31/2011

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month


    - works great, no drivers needed

    - 2.0 speed (did not test transfer speed)

    - shielded

    - low voltage drop:

    laptop -> 5m USB active extension -> 5m el-cheapo USB passive extension -> webcam + high power LED drawing a total of 350mA gives me 3.5V at the webcam end (my webcam still works great but YMMV)

    Note that the above linkage grossly violates the USB specification (100mA max from a USB hub) so with your computer or webcam might not work.


    None, can't even complain about the price!


    In theory one can use up to 5 hubs in series for a total of 30m. But that's kind of pushing the limit.


    I'd buy it again.
