Style of RS-232 Connector: DB9

MSRP: $599.99

HDBaseT: No

Maximum Distance:

· Cat-5: Works up to 200ft. at all resolutions tested

· Cat-6: Works up to 200ft. at all resolutions tested

· Blu-ray player: Cat-5 works up to 200ft. at 1080p and 1080p 3D. Cat-6 works at 1080p up to 200ft. but does not link with 1080p 3D after 100ft.

The extender was priced below average compared to other extenders in this review. It has a form factor that is similar to other units that were tested. As mentioned previously, the manufacturing might have been done at the same factory as other units, but the performance was distinctly different. This unit has a power supply on each end and several lights for diagnostics to indicate power status, RJ-45 link, along with IR transmit and receive. The set was very simply to set up and operate with a minimal amount of connections to make. The company’s website rated the maximum distance supported as 260ft., but our testing was only able to achieve a HDMI signal at a distance of 200ft.
