The StarTech VGA Video Extender Remote Receiver ST121R is designed for use with StarTech.com ST1214T 4 Port, and ST1218T 8 Port VGA Extender transmitter units. This is a cost-effective video extension solution that allows you to split and extend the VGA signal to multiple remote displays over a standard four-pair Category 5 (or better) UTP cable. With a transmission range of up to 150 meters (500 feet), this system is great for airports, bus depots, retail stores, or large buildings.
Cost Effective Solution Uses a standard Category 5 straight-wired, twisted-pair, network patch cable for economical and reliable data transmission.
Great Extension Range Extends the connection distance of VGA displays by up to 500 feet (150 meters), offering flexibility in the placement of your equipment.
Mounting Flexibility The included mounting brackets provide versatile mounting options – such as on a wall, desk, or cabinet – for a clean and manageable solution.
This review is from: StarTech VGA over CAT 5 Remote Receiver ST121R for Video Extender
Pros: -Solid/Durable build quality -Compatible with a wide range StarTech Transmitters and Repeaters -Built-in VGA splitter! -Video quality is just as good as the NTI extenders we are also using at 1/5th the cost! -Can plug another extender/transmitter into a VGA port without the video ghosting effect commonly seen with passive VGA splitters.
Cons: Have had 2 of these die on me in the past 2 years. Now, these two deaths I can trace to brownouts that we had in our area so I can't really blame the extender. However, I run a mixed environment where about half of our displays are using a similar product from NTI and I haven't lost a single one of those...
Other Thoughts: I'm currently using about 10 of these in a 24/7 environment running promotional content on commercial displays. All displays are running content at 1024x768 resolution at distances up to 300 ft over Cat5E cabling. No issues with display quality at all even at the longer distances. I cannot attest to higher resolutions at this distance however.
