Consisting of a local unit and remote, the StarTech ST122UTPA VGA video extender with audio allows you to connect up to four monitors (two local and two remote) to a single computer. The video signal and corresponding audio are sent to the remote unit over a standard four-pair Category 5 or better (Cat 5e recommended) UTP cable, supporting extended video distances of up to 150 meters/500 feet. You can make use of existing Ethernet infrastructure, eliminating the cost and hassle of running expensive VGA cable. To simplify installation, this kit also includes a mounting bracket for the ST122UTPA receiver to install onto walls, desks, or cabinets for a tidy setup.

  • newegg Saves Money This cost-effective solution uses the more affordable network cable rather than a VGA cable.
  • newegg Ease of Use Pure hardware design; no software or drivers required.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes what it's supposed to

Pros: These work as expected, and are a snap to install. The extender's are labeled Local Unit and Remote Unit clearly, and the Local Unit allows you to attach a regular monitor so you can actually see what is being seen at your remote locations.

Cons: The only thing limiting this from a 5 egg rating is that these do not come with the required Male to Female cable, which I only found out when I tried to get it working. The "Video In" is a Male connector, while a general VGA cable is Male to Male! I was in a rush, so I had to pay $30 at my local store to get the Male to Female cable.

Other Thoughts: VGA cables in general extend 100ft before they begin detiororating at a noticeable level, but i'd hate to run a single-purpose VGA cable over an extended area and through rafters.
