HDMI® Extender using Cat5e/CAT6 cable extending up to 196 ft, Supporting DDC & HDCP
The Monoprice HDMI Extender allows for the extension of an HDMI video signal up to 60 meters away by using the extender units and two Cat5e or Cat6 ethernet cables.
This extender supports maximum resolution of 1080p and can extend to up to 196 feet. It supports the HDCP copy-protection signal, so you won't have any handshake problems.
Note: For best results use Cat6 STP cabling.

PROS: They work at first but eventually fail.
CONS: I have 8 of these in my house. After a year, they all began to fail. After losing one during a power failure, I put some on a UPS but those eventually failed too.
Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear PID 6532 is no longer functioning. Could you describe your setup including all devices and cables in use? What is the length and gauge of the HDMI cables in your setup? Does anything change when switching out with different cables or testing with a different device or display?
Have you tried power cycling the setup? To power cycle, disconnect everything from the extender including power and cables. Plug everything back in after about 5 minutes and power everything back on starting from the display and working your way back in the setup to the source device.
Also, would you happen to have your order number so that I may look further into the matter? Please let me know so that I may better assist you.
still can't believe that the fastest shipping was the cheapest......
thumbs up to Monoprice!!!!!
PROS: small size
easy to install
CONS: why didn't i do this sooner?
PROS: Easy to set up, power only required where the video source is at.
CONS: Not really a CON but I wish it only needed one Cat6 cable. They do sell extenders that only use a single Cat6 however my co-worker swears by these so I purchased them based on his experience.
PROS: Worked fairly well. I confirmed that this works with a 30 feet of Cat 6 cable and a PlayStation 3 and my TiVo. Much better than the passive ones which don't work with the PS3.
CONS: Doesn't work well when the PS3 is behind a switch. I had to put an HDMI booster on the PS3 HDMI cable before the switch to get it to work.
PROS: Works as described, great alternative to systems that are 35% more expensive (at least), Small, light
CONS: Power supply should be on transmitter side... a few more logistics are necessary when planning a system that will need power on receiver side, as these units require.
*Easy to install
CONS: * Not reliable
PROS: Works as described, for a *great* price. CAT6 cables are so much easier to route than thick-gauge HDMI cables. No negotiation issues. Has worked well with everything I've used it with so far, no negotiation issues or visual issues. (XBox, NVidia video card, Sharp BRD Player, Optoma projector, HDTV Cable box)
CONS: Reportedly prone to overheat, and does get hot after a few hours of use. Uses two cables instead of a single cable like newer or more modern units (that also cost $500+).
PROS: Low cost, Small size
CONS: None yet
Would like to have a power supply with a 90 degree cord end, not a power supply / plug together.
PROS: great price, better than single network units
CONS: power supply size
