Good They work fairly well over the 100 feet we are currently using them - via an intermediary patch panel and wall faceplate. Use them for remote Keyboard/mouse. Able to use 4 of them on same computer without a problem. Install the software FIRST before connecting them. You have to have power at the remote location or it won't recognize the remote device. You will have to reboot after software installation. It may take a minute or two after connecting for it to recognize the remote device. See Q&A section - Installation does not auto-set the softare as a service to run before login - so if using to remotely control a PC with Keyboard/mouse - you may have to work on tweaking the installtion to suit your needs.

Answer: 
B203-101 is simply an extender that allows a USB 2.0 signal to go longer than the maximum 5 meter distance allowed by the USB specification. It will certainly support a USB hub (powered) at the end of a a 50ft run. As far as a BlueRay player....that would be a video signal, most likely HDMi, that the B203-101 would not support.

Power supply question

I can't tell whether the sender or reciever has the power connection could you please clear this up. Also, since this has its own power supply will it charge connected devices and/or provide its own power for devices with high usb power demands?

Answer: 
The Receiver unit in the B203-101 kit is the only powered unit...AC adapter included. It does not allow for charging devices, and provides only standard 500ma per port, same as a typical USB hub.
