    • "Disappointing product" by garlanjc on 9/30/2011
      Overall: 1.5 out of 5
      Value:
      Quality:

      The eXtenHD transmitter and receiver must be purchased together, since neither can be used alone. They come with only a 90 day warranty. Mine failed after four months, and it is impossible to know whether it is the receiver or transmitter that failed. The units worked more-or-less, although I could see snow on the TV (separation about 60 feet). These units require two CAT6 cables, which is a distinct disadvantage since similar units by other manufacturers cost less and require only one CAT5e cable. I don't recommend this product, because I think there are newer, better, and less expensive options.
