Overview

This 4-port USB 2.0 extender is an easy and inexpensive solution for creating workspace freedom. Now you can extend the distance of your USB 2.0 devices over a single Ethernet cable, up to 130ft (40m) over Cat5, or 165ft (50m) over Cat6.

Go the extra distance for increased productivity

Overcome the 16ft USB cable length limitation to create a more flexible and efficient workspace. Now you can place up to four USB devices in remote locations away from the host computer system. Position your hard drive enclosure, printer, scanner, webcam and other popular peripherals right where you need them, to save time and enhance your productivity.

Port location enables fast and easy connections

Gain quick access to the USB devices you use most frequently. Often on the go? Use the two top ports for fast, easy connections to portable devices like flash drives, smartphones and tablets. Plus, you still have two front-facing ports for printers or other devices requiring a more permanent set-up.

Supports any operating system and older devices

The versatile USB2004EXTV supports Windows®, Mac® and Linux systems. Set-up is easy with no additional drivers or software required, and the extender is backward compatible with USB 1.1 and 1.0 peripherals.

Backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Applications

No need to lay new wiring – use existing direct cable, in-wall Cat5 or Cat6, to extend USB connections between rooms

Use as a mid-point repeater to increase the connection distance of your USB peripherals
