Prudent Way PWI-USB-OE Reviews

Not suitable for use with webcams

By Palmer G.
Rated 1 out of 5

Tried to use this to connect a webcam in one room to a computer in another. Even with a known-good Cat6 cable only 25 feet long (well under the advertised 150' maximum distance), I got a low-quality image at about two frames per second. Not recommended.

Works great

Got this for a web cam that was in a separate room. Worked OK on my PC but not great. Did not work on my Mac (which is what I needed it to work on) video was very glitchy.

Works great with canon ros remote control utility to 150’ with 24 AWG Ethernet cable. Be careful of lesser cables.

worked for intended purpose

USB over RJ45 extension worked for me in a room where we have the computer in back and the connected webcam in the ceiling.  Simple to use and works great with 1080p webcam.  we also tried it with our 4k web cam, but that did not work and the camera kept crashing.  if youre just trying to extend a 1080p web cam this worked better for me than regular USB extensions.

It works as advertised

These do not have lights to know if there is data coming in or not, but overall, you plug it in and voila!
