  • Handy USB extension

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

    Pros:

    Simple to operate, no drivers etc
    Works over quite a distance.
    Allows cheap USB devices to be extended from the PC.

    Cons:

    Haven't found any.

    OtherThoughts:

    I've tested this with a webcam (with LEDS) to provide the USB data and it works well over about 40 metres, this includes my patch panel. I will be using this with the USB Digital Thermometer Dongle (sku 07003) to do some temperature monitoring. If I could only work out how to have multiple Thermometer Dongles connected, life would be easier.

    Bottomline:

    This product could be handy for ad-hoc requirements.
    And remember, DON"T PLUG INTO NETWORK SWITCHES
