Good, but struggles over 70 feet – USB Cable via RJ45 Extender Set (Power Boost Up to 150 feet) Reviews

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