  • Good covering of low speed devices

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

    Pros:

    +++Can cover a big distance.

    +Plug and Play

    +Completely transparent for the computer

    Cons:

    -Only usb 1.0

    -I have to and both are not manufactured so well. There is no cable tension protection on the USB connectors. Its easy enough to rip of a cable inside the connector. On was delivered with a shortcut with eventually destroyed the device.

    -Voltage drop over a long distance. If the device at the other end consumes a high current (like a passive hub with several devices ) there will definetively be a voltage drop which will cause devices to malfuntion. Having a powered hub at the other end to stabilise voltage is a good idea.

    OtherThoughts:

    Its good as it is except the speed.

    Bottomline:

    I use it to put a HSDPA modem on the roof. Everything is linked up in a waterproof box. Only way to get Internet at my place.
