1 out of 5 eggshasn't worked for me

Pros: when it works, it does the job, but...

Cons: I've owned this device for about 2 years and I've tried everything to get it to work consistently. I'm a programmer with an engineering degree (mostly HW design), so I should be able to get it to work with my asus P5W-DH HTPC. However, the troubleshooting documentation is very limited and I've not been impressed by star techs technical support (or their knowledge of the product). I guess you get what you pay for. Next time I'll just by the gefen model. At least I've seen gefen's usb extender work.

Other Thoughts: If you don't mind rebooting your computer on a regular basis this device will work for you. Also, I've only tried using it with my windows machines (XP and Vista). I don't know if this device would work any better on a Linux machine (I'm guessing not)
