This review is from: Tripp Lite High Speed USB 2.0 Over Cat5 Extender Hub - 4-Port
Pros: I was skeptical buying this product. Havent had the best luck with Tripp Lite stuff. Also all USB 2.0 extenders I looked at were $400 and up. Why was this one cheap? Well I can see why, its not flashy, its heavy and bulky. But who cares? It extends my USB 2.0 over CAT 6 just fine. Transfer speeds are acceptable and does everything I expected. Important note, its not natively supported by the OS, you need to install drivers, for my tricaster 8000, this was a bit of a bummer, but it still works. Occasionally 1 USB port stops working, but a quick power reset fixes that. Worth the $300 savings all day. Ready to buy another.
Cons: As mentioned, needs drivers, 1 USB port is flakey.
Other Thoughts: Don't drop 589.00 on the Geffen USB tools unless you like to waste money. This does the same thing for $300 less.
