Works with Web Cams + USB Hubs – USB-over-RJ45 USB Cable Power Amplified Extension Adapters - Extends USB Upto 45 Meters (Pair) Reviews

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

Pros:
Got it working with a (non-powered) usb hub, and I hooked up 2 USB Web cams to it. I was having trouble with the webcams over a long ethernet cable, but a shorter one works fine.
Works as described:
It's as if you are plugging something in right beside your computer (but in my case I was 2 floors away).
Cons:
I had a lot of trouble getting it up and running with a USB hub from far 120+ feet away, i think it came down to a bandwisth issue, this can't be resolved from what I know. I have about 15+ feet worth of cat5e and it finally works, havent tried longer than that or less than about 120 feet.
