Did not work consistently

The cable run was approximately 70 feet and we could only get the camera work for 10-15 minutes, then the image would freeze up. I used 2 other extenders by vaddio and extron with success This might be ok for keyboard or mouse but not video cameras

I used the Boostlink on a concert sound job to connect a mixer and an HP laptop with usb3 ports, using 100 feet of cat5e cable. 18 channels of audio transmitted perfectly.

Simple and easy extended USB

Use this to extend control of a Camera and Telescope 100ft away in the garden. Telescope also has a USB to RS232 converter, which works perfectly over the extended link. No real complaints, it works as expected. Used to have a USB1.1 extender, but camera picture download was too slow, this makes a world of difference.

Excellent

I use it perfectly with the Behringer X Air XR18, for USB recording of 18 audio tracks to the computer located at 50 meters with a Cable RJ45 cat5.E

Very handy product

I needed to run a USB cable from my computer to another device .. but the other device was about 30 feet away and normal USB just won't work at those distances. This little device allows you to run USB over a CAT5 (or CAT5e or CAT6) cable .. over a hundred feet. It plugs into a USB jack on the computer, thru an adapter to CAT5 cable, and on the other end connects to a small powered adapter and back to USB .. Works fine. A great way to extend the reach of USB. Completely transparent to the computer and to the external device .. no software required. Just connect and use.

Can this be used with a USB hub? In particular, a USB 3 hub on the device end? I'm only expecting USB 2.0 speeds. A competing device only worked with some USB 3.0 hubs.

"Sabrent 10-Port 60W USB 3.0 Hub with Individual Power Switches and LEDs Includes 60W 12V/5A Power Adapter" (HB-BU10) does work on the device end. Tested with USB-RS232 devices and a USB 2.0 high speed data streaming device.

Assuming a high quality cable, will this be able to provide full USB 2.0 480 mpbs speeds at 164 feet? Thanks!

question

Is this an Ethernet extender or just a Cat5/6 Extender? HUGE difference between just retransmitting across CAT5 wiring and actually converting to Ethernet Frames, Only the latter would allow you to use with switches or other L2 devices in between, which is the scenario I'm trying to use it for. Not looking to run a dedicated line.
Asked by: Anonymous
For what I bought it for and I believe what its designed for, is to just extend and transmit USB protocol past the recommend 6 feet. In my tests I was able to extend up to 150 ft. This is a P2P device.
