Perfect, again!

Faithbuilder, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Best ever remote hookup for a projector. Run a CAT5 cable from the computer in the back to the projector in the front- instant video. This was a replacement for one purchased 6 years ago, which began distorting colors. New set fixed it right up.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use

Junk

kevin w., Newegg

  • Summary: Need more R&D!!!!
  • Pros: None!!
  • Cons: Bought 16 of these units. All show a loss of signal after just a few minutes of usage. Only way to get the unit back up was to pull the power plug. This is being installed in a 911 dispatch center. Not very reliable.

Terrible Product, Worse Service

Ben M., Newegg
23 September 2009
  • Summary: I will never buy a startech product again after this horrible experience. This is the new and "better" version of the ST121. It's new enough that they apparently haven't worked out all the bugs. Oh, I'm only running a 1024x768 signal, and I'm only running it across 100 feet.
  • Pros: Very small package; Multiple monitor outputs on each half of device. Black.
  • Cons: First, I noticed it came with no cables. Plugged it in, worked wonderfully.. for 10 minutes. After ~10 minutes, the video signal goes away, and the only way to get it back, is to unplug the power to the transmitter unit, and plug it back in. BOTH of the units I purchased had the same problem. Con...

VGA over Cat5

Juan J., Newegg
14 August 2009
  • Pros: Really good quality as far as picture. I use this to run video signal from my HTPC to my projector.
  • Cons: Looses signal to the projector. You need to unplug the power and plug it in back in to gain your signal back. I had returned the first unit for this reason, but I still got the same results when I received the replacement.

Works Great

Jerrod C., Newegg
22 March 2009
  • Summary: Overall its a great well priced product and for more short term use I would definitely give it five eggs.
  • Pros: Beautiful Picture, Very easy setup, just a good overall idea. Running a monitor about 95 feet away from the computer.
  • Cons: I use this for an additional monitor in a security system that is on 24/7. about every 24-48 hours the remote box will lose signal. But a simple unplug/replug of the remote box power brings everything right back up. By no means a deal breaker; but a problem I can't seem to find a reason for. I do...

  • Cons: None that I have. It does exactly what I needed and then some.

Perfect solution

Anonymous, Newegg
7 January 2009
  • Summary: I haven't used full 1080p HD signal over this yet, however I am interested to try, for 1280x1024 to a projector though this cable run rocks.
  • Pros: Perfect for variable length cable runs often encountered for mobile setups. No loss of quality whatsoever on 100ft runs. cheaper than buying one 15ft, 50ft, and 100ft VGA cables, and I can take a spool of cat5e and cut exact length runs punch em at the venue, good to show.
  • Cons: no mounting solution/hardware included.
