  • Good, but struggles over 70 feet

    posted by haralddo on 06/26/2012

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    As always with Dealextreme, it's cheap.
    Easy to use and has a cable that makes it easy to fasten with tie wraps for permanent installation

    Cons:

    Can't always trust the connection. It says 150ft and that can be true if you only use it with a keyboard or with a powered USB device like a hdd or a camera.

    OtherThoughts:

    Could it help to power it with a second power cable or via a powered USB hub?

    Bottomline:

    I use this with a keyboard with buildt in mousepad. Even with high quality cable it could struggle over 20 meters. 10 meters cable, ca 33 ft is no problem.
    I use a lot of cat5 extenders, and this is one of my favorites!
