Well... worked at 720p for me. – 1080p HDMI-over-RJ45 Extender with Wall Panels (Pair) Reviews

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

Pros:
+ cheaper than every other available solution that I found, including similar products.
+ enables you to connect a projector or a monitor up to 35 meters (never tested it with this length, though).
+ works at 720p, and maybe can work at 1080p as well, if using CAT-5 or CAT-6 of better quality than those I used for my tests.
Cons:
- didn't prove to be working at 1080p. maybe better ethernet cables should be used, I tested it with very simple cable.
- if in the future you'll have a different type of projector or monitor which won't work with this solution, you'll be stuck with cables running through the walls and without a working hdmi connection...
Other:
* I didn't use it eventually because I found an hdmi cable long enough for my needs. it worked when I tested it at 720p (which is all my projector supports anyway), but I decided to use real hdmi cable so in the future I won't have problem if I ever replace my projector.
Bottomline:
not for videophiles, but works as a cost effective solution, at least at 720p.
