This review is from: SIIG USB Extender (JU-EX0011-S1) (Personal Computers)
If this is a USB extender device, then why does one of the couplers have an RJ modular jack connector on it? RJ is NOT USB. Only one of the connector jacks shown in the image is for a USB connector. The other image does not have a USB connector jack.
Either this device has a USB to RJ connection... or they are showing two completely different devices in the image... which the technical descriptions and product details do not support. This is like plugging your toothbrush into your hairdryer as they are displaying the product images. We need to see both sides of the same coupler... not two different models of couplers which are incompatible.
Once again, the sellers in this category cannot seem to get their act together to provide detailed, accurate info to the consumers.

Please do not listen to this reviewer, as they jump to conclusions about products which they have no intention of purchasing. SIG is a company that specializes in converter boxes that allow a signal to pass through a cat5 cable with the rj45 connection between the converter boxes. This method allows the signal to go further than most other protocols over twisted pair cabling. It is also easier to route wiring and utp cat5 cable is rather inexpensive. I personally do not own this particular model, but have seen it used before in churches and theatrical environments where a long cable would be needed for usb. And guess what, it works!

Please stop abusing Amazon's review system with your unhelpful nonsense. Most people who are looking for such device already know that the regular USB specifications don't allow the cable lengths of such size so other "band-aid" solutions must be used, such as using an extremely inexpensive RJ45 cables and special adapters like these which use such cables (both of these adapters DO have a standard USB jacks on opposite ends of RJ45 jacks). People who don't know these things can easily go to Wikipedia to read about USB standard's limitations then go to manufacturer's website to see the exact photos of these adapters from all sides and read the "user's manual" describing in details how these adapters work.

Sadly this user appears to have a complete disconnect from reailty. The product is easy to use and does exactly what the product discription states. See my review separate from this comment.
