Handy USB extension – USB Cable via RJ45 Extender Set (Power Boost Up to 150 feet) Reviews

posted by paulob on 10/21/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Simple to operate, no drivers etc
Works over quite a distance.
Allows cheap USB devices to be extended from the PC.
Cons:
Haven't found any.
Other:
I've tested this with a webcam (with LEDS) to provide the USB data and it works well over about 40 metres, this includes my patch panel. I will be using this with the USB Digital Thermometer Dongle (sku 07003) to do some temperature monitoring. If I could only work out how to have multiple Thermometer Dongles connected, life would be easier.
Bottomline:
This product could be handy for ad-hoc requirements.
And remember, DON"T PLUG INTO NETWORK SWITCHES
