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

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

Pros:
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
Cons:
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.
Other:
Could it help to power it with a second power cable or via a powered USB hub?
Bottomline:
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!
