Answer: 
If it works fine without it, that's okay. Some devices may require more power than the 4port hub can provide, so the AC adapter will provide the additional power needed.

Will this power a keyboard and mouse?

With the included power adapter, will this allow me to use a:
Razer Lycosa Mirror keyboard ~ 5V 650ma
Razer Naga mouse ~ 5V 150ma

The extenders would be connected with ~50 feet of cat5e cable
between them. They would be plugged into a PC's motherboard USB 2.0 slots.

Would I experience input lag with this setup?

Thank you for your time!

Answer: 
The U224-4R4-R will allow USB peripherals like your keyboard and mouse, to be located up to 150 ft. from your computer via Cat5e/Cat6 cable.

So with that said, your application should work with no lag.

I just got one of these and i'm using a very short CAT5 cable to connect with and the remote device is not working properly. Though the device works properly when connected directly to the mac.

Answers

Answer: 
These products are designed to be used with Cat5e cable vs. Cat5 cable; so the best thing to do would be to get a Cat5e cable to use with the U224-4R4.

Tripp Lite has various Cat5e cables that can be used with the hub. For additional info in regards to finding the right cable, please reach out to our presales applications team at 773-869-1773 or presaleshelp@tripplite.com.
