Good covering of low speed devices – USB Cable via RJ45 Extender Set (Power Boost Up to 150 feet) Reviews

posted by Freakazodiak on 07/26/2009 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
+++Can cover a big distance.
+Plug and Play
+Completely transparent for the computer
Cons:
-Only usb 1.0
-I have to and both are not manufactured so well. There is no cable tension protection on the USB connectors. Its easy enough to rip of a cable inside the connector. On was delivered with a shortcut with eventually destroyed the device.
-Voltage drop over a long distance. If the device at the other end consumes a high current (like a passive hub with several devices ) there will definetively be a voltage drop which will cause devices to malfuntion. Having a powered hub at the other end to stabilise voltage is a good idea.
Other:
Its good as it is except the speed.
Bottomline:
I use it to put a HSDPA modem on the roof. Everything is linked up in a waterproof box. Only way to get Internet at my place.
