Default USB over Cat 5 Extenders

Hello,

We are looking to change the layout of part of our office. We are currently moving some USB round using USB Cat5 extenders, but they are cheapy ones and we have found them to be a bit unreliable.

Has anyone got any "tried and tested" recommendations? The runs are only 20m tops but there are already cat5 cables in and the floor is sealed now, so can't really run some of those "magic" USB extension leads.

Is it just USB you're looking to extend? Is also it USB1.1 or 2?

I was going to suggest some kit but having seen the price of the Maplin item I won't recommend it as it is 15 times as expensive!

What devices are you trying to connect to. I usually prefer to try and convert to ethernet and run over the CAT5 that way.
