Product works great and I would use seller again.
JAMES -- bolivia, NC   2/3/2014

ROBERT -- west seneca, NY   1/27/2014
Extension works as planned.
MATT -- heber, UT   1/24/2014
The cable works as expected. I wish is would have had the size of the jack included in the description. It's a 3.5mm and I needed 2.5mm. Luckily, Radioshack sells cheap adaptors.
SARAH -- ray, MI   12/29/2013
Used this to extend radio shack wired IR repeater. Waste of money. Didnt work at all. After troubleshooting to no avail and my electrician suggesting to just use common 4 stranded thermostat wire instead, I cut it open to reveal that this cable didn't even have three wires inside...only two. I had to re-run new wire fifty feet through my walls. awesome. I would give this zero stars if it would let me.

I was shipped two of these in two separate boxes, paid twice for shipping, now I don't want to pay again to have it shipped back. All in all I am not so satisfied!

does the job
Stephen -- Chandler AZ   12/31/2012
Please note, this item IS NOT fully compatible the the Smarthomeâ„¢ Hidden IR Repeater System Item #59501. It will not extend the signal of all four of the dual emitters. Since this item was recommended with the Smarthome system, I assumed that it would extend everything. After speaking to customer service, it is explained somewhere in the fine print that the items are compatible but the extender can only extend one signal. Shipping the item back would cost more than my refund so I am out the $$$$. Fortunately, it's not a lot of money but still very disappointing that it is not made clear that the emitter does not truly extend the entire capabilities of the SmartHome brand repeater system. On the plus side, it is supposedly a simple process to build an extension cable of your own with modest electronics knowledge. I don't have that knowledge but the recipient of this gift does.
Brad -- denver, CO   12/28/2012
Does not work with Comcast cable boxes.
