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).
- User's Manual (Oct 4, 2007)
PROS: VGA signal is extended 30 feet
CONS: Display has a green tint to it.
PROS: Great price and easy to install. We have about 10 installed and have only had 1 that was bad out of the box but got an exchange right away.
CONS: May have to use STP in some cases. We had one install that would not support 1280 x 960 until we used STP.
PROS: Worked flawlessly all the way up to 1280x1024 on 120' of Cat5E as advertised.
CONS: I was hoping it would act as a ground isolator solving an ever present ground loop problem I have between my video suite and the stage, but it didn't.
PROS: Very easy to use.
I don't know how long a run would be too long for this kit, but I have no reservations at all for relatively short runs.
PROS: No wall wart needed
CONS: Comes with only one of the two VGA cables you'll need. I'm sure the assumption is, we all have a spare VGA cable around, but you'll want to keep this in mind so you can plan ahead.
I also think it should come with two-sided foam tape, since the receiver module is perfect for sticking to the back of the display. But you can pick some up easily enough at the store.
PROS: These work very well to transmit HD15 VGA signal over Cat. 5 LAN cabling. They are self powered so the need for AC in isolated places is eliminated.
PROS: Doesn't need a power source.
PROS: Works perfect.
Cheaper then anywhere I've seen.
These are better then all other Baluns I've tested.
PROS: Works, mostly.
CONS: Blurred Image.
