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.
This review is from: StarTech VGA Video Extender Remote Receiver over Cat 5 ST121R
Pros: -Solid/Durable build quality
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.
