          Comments about Gefen EXT-USB2.0-LR Cat5 USB 2.0 Extender:

          Used to allow a high-performance USB oscilloscope to be used remotely, for example inside a "no-access" area. It worked entirely as advertised. The only improvement I would like is for the remote receiver to be powered via the CAT5 cable (like PoE). Competing products do have this, but the prices are much higher.

                Comments about Gefen EXT-USB2.0-LR Cat5 USB 2.0 Extender:

                Gefen always makes great products and this device is no different. Having a status light and power light takes out the guesswork in setting up. I have used it with 200' of cat5 and haven't had any issues.
                Only con is the price. A little more expensive then other ones in the market but with Gefen you know you are getting professional grade.

                    As the owner of live sound, lighting and video rental company (based in Greenpoint, Brooklyn), there are many instances where asthetics rule the layout of the event so the drive components of our audio, video or lighting systems may end up in a less than convenient location. This can make access to these systems difficult and thus may compromise control. This USB CAT5 extender is an excellent, reliable tool that helps resolve these issues.
                    I have no hesitation in recomending this USB to CAT5 to USB extender to other potential users. We will buy more of these for inclusion with all our systems to ultimately keep our end result optimized to the best of our ability and keep our clients satisfied.
