PROS: Works very cleanly, no visible lag.
CONS: REQUIRES both wires to be plugged in.
CONS: -Requires two Cat5e cables. Will not work with just one.
-Requires power on both ends
I purchased this simultaneous to getting 4 DVI+RS232 extenders made by Gefen. I ran 12 Cat5e Cables from my office to a spare bedroom through the attic. Plugged everything in and worked perfect right off the get go...installation aside from running the cable was about 60 seconds...
I've been using this for a few months no issues. Works just as good as the Gefen at about 1/12th the price.
Great job MP - now make a DL extender. :)
PROS: Compact, works fine with my NEC LCD2090UXi and also Dell 2007FP at 1600x1200.
CONS: Wish it could do 1920x1200, or rather that Monoprice would come out with a Dual Link extender.
PROS: Reliable video feed
High quality for price
CONS: Must use two UTP cables
Applied DVI-HDMI adapters to transfer HDMI video
PROS: Easy to set up, works as expected, killer price
For what it's worth, it looks like the power connector has an outer diameter of 3.5mm and an inner diameter of 1.3mm, which is the same size used for powered USB hubs.
PROS: It works for 1680x1050 over 15+ meters of Cat5e.
I haven't tried to watch HDCP content yet (and don't plan to), but the NVIDIA Control Panel reports that HDCP is detected and working with my HDCP-compliant LCD monitor.
I've done some limited gaming with this setup, and it's as if the machine were just a few feet from the monitor. No lag, glitches, or video quality problems.
No drivers, no problems when the video mode changes, no fuss, no muss so far it has "just worked."
PROS: Price, size.
CONS: Can't power from either end.
PROS: It works.
