VGA/UXGA CAT5/RJ45 100 Meters Extender Kit - Balun (Self-Powered)

Extend VGA video signals up to 328 feet (100 meters) using the Cat5e/Cat6 Ethernet cable using this VGA Extender Kit from Monoprice!

This extender kit consists of a transmitter, which converts a VGA signal to a form that can be transmitted over Ethernet cable, and a receiver, which converts the signal back to VGA. It supports a maximum resolution of 1600x1200 @ 60Hz for distances up to 164 feet (50 meters) or 12024x768 @ 60Hz for distances up to 328 feet (100 meters).

Horrible product

Pros: VGA signal is extended 30 feet

Cons: Display has a green tint to it.

We finally installed this solution, and are completely unhappy with the product. While it does extend the VGA connection, the screen is green and unsightly. We plugged in a VGA connection directly to the TV, to verify the TV is not the problem. The pins are not bent on any of the 3 different VGA cables we attempted to use. I would hope this is just a bad batch, and not what is "expected" of this solution.

Hello Ron,

Thank you for your review and my apologies to hear of the issues you have experienced with PID 5034. If I may ask, if the resolution is lowered does the issue still occur? Also, Have you tried adjusting the DIP Switches at the receiver unit?

Works but description may not be accurate

Pros: Plug and play. Passive - no power supply needed

Cons: Small thing but the VGA and network jack are on the same side of the unit. Normally when I use these types of extenders they are in line going from point A to point B. Makes more sense to have VGA on one side and network on the other.

These seem to be solid extenders. They worked right out of the box...good picture, no dropouts or interference. The issue I'm having (and am currently working with Monoprice support on) is that the description here on the site shows a max output resolution of 1600x1200 at shorter cable lengths. This is also reflected on the units themselves in that they have UXGA printed on the outside. However in all my tests I have only been able to achieve 1280x1024 as a max resolution (SXGA). The included instructions reflect SXGA as the max overall resolution.
I've tested this with multiple cables and displays and this is the highest resolution I can get. It also seems odd that with a stated max of 1600 x 1200 that there are no widescreen resolutions available. Everything it offers is 4:3. You would think that it could pass a 1280x720 signal with no problem, but no.

This issue has made the extender of no real use to me, but as far as function goes, they are solid units. I will probably be returning mine, but only because I need higher resolution than I'm getting.

VGA Cat5 Extender

Pros: Works, mostly.

Cons: Blurred Image.

This may not be a Fair Review. I tested this with a 230 FT Roll of Cat 5 Cable. I had to Switch All Switches to get a Viewable Picrure and then it was Blurred/Softened. It was Viewable, but not what I would call a Professional Picture. I have not yet tried it on a Shorter Cable. I am having Shielded Cat 6 installed. It will be about 25 FT. I'm hoping for much better Results as the Instructions Strongly Suggest Shielded Cat 6.

Works, but not well enough to use

  • Doug,

Pros: small and cheap

Cons: Does not send the correct size image

This was another piece of hardware that Monoprice suggested for a project. I had sent them detailed descriptions of what we were doing, and diagrams. They said this could extend the VGA signal the distance we needed.

It did...sort of. The image we would get was a shrunk down image. The screen is about 11 feet wide and normally the projector fills the screen. Howver with this extender in place the image only filled about 8 feet of the screen. The image was not cropped, just smaller.

Contacting support wasn't worth the time. They were not able to help and only suggested using different cables. I tried short/long/cat5/cat6. Same result.

Another product that left me disappointed. Monoprice will still be my source for cables, but not sure about their other products and definitely not impressed with their staff.

Pros: easy to install

Cons: you never know if its going to work till you try it

I use it in 2 different locations with the same DVR VGA sends and same monitors 2 out of the 3 worked. No matter what we try. setting dip switches did not help, eventually we had to convert to composite video and send via video balun.
