5 out of 5 eggs Perfect for X10 module 01/01/2010

This review is from: SABRENT USB-RJXT USB Extension cable over Cat5e RJ45 Extender adapter

Pros:

Works as designed for USB 1.X devices. I tested with a mouse, keyboard, and a X10 Active Home Pro control module.

The x10 module is in my basement close to the circuit breaker box and my server is on the second floor. X10 control modules should always be located close to the breaker box to maximize signal strength over electrical wires. Between which I have about 75' of CAT 6 UTP with patch panel connections at both ends. I see a solid connection when uploading code to the X10 module (the most aggressive task over this connection). Also my Windows server for my X10 home control network reside inside a VM on my server, and I showed no incompatiblity with redirecting the USB port to the Windows Server VM. If my setup works, I suspect a less complex setup will work. I did not require a powered USB hub at the far end of the cable, but that may be since the X10 module is powered.

I'm impressed.

Cons:

Newegg was not the lowest cost by a significant margin. While I am a dedicated customer because of the service Newegg provides, I could not justify the extra cost due to the significant difference and went with another vendor.

Other Thoughts:

For my purposes, worth the cost either way. This saves me from having a small lightly used server in my basement just to upload code to a USB device. A 75' USB cable behind my walls, unreal! =)
