Nice Balun Set
  Review by Robert Nance (Texas USA) on Mar 23, 2014
The reviewer has last purchased this item on Mar 04, 2014
These baluns are great. I had to install 4 cameras a little over 170' away from the DVR location. It was nice to be able to run one CAT6 cable to a closet where I then branched off with Siamese cable to the 4 cameras. A power supply was installed next to the balun to provide local power to each of the 4 cameras. The video image is just as clear as it would be with coax. These baluns are a great option to distribute your cable and power supplies when long runs are required.

4 Channel Passive Video Balun
  Review by Sam Beates on Sep 02, 2013
These are great for cutting over a channel system over from BNC (RG%( cable) over to CAT 5 (Ethernet) cable use. In fact if you have more cameras you can simply purchase more multiple baluns. It is a passive balun so there is no power required but the nice thing is that it groups four different cameras together in one connections and helps keep things neat and tidy. I've never had extremely long runs (Cat5 over 1000 feet) but for every application I have used this, I have never had a problem with cable run distance to signal degradation. Remember if you have an 8 channel system you'll need to purchase 2 of these and 4 for a 16 channel system and so on.

4 Channel Passive Video Balun
  Review by Nevin Moss on Feb 22, 2013
This is a good way to put four camera on one CAT5. OF course you won't have any room for power (or audio) so you'll still have to run that separately.

4 Channel Passive Video Balun
  Review by Ken Hout on Jan 23, 2013
I seem to be doing a lot more CAT5 installs these days. This balun works well for covering four channels at once.

4 Channel Passive Video Balun
  Review by Patrick Lawrence on Jan 15, 2013
I put one of these on the DVR end of the run and then put singles on each of the camera runs. It works great and makes CAT5 installations less of a chore.

4 Channel Passive Video Balun
  Review by Jeremy Pitts on Nov 20, 2012
This 4 channel balun works very well. Remember if you are a do-it-yourselfer to purchase two of these baluns, one for each end of the run. Also, I think this balun is best for cameras that have a relatively close grouping (i.e. lots of large department stores for example will have three or four cameras mounted on the same spot on the roof for parking lot coverage). Otherwise, you'll still have to run RG59 or some video cable with a BNC connector to the balun if the cameras are separated very much.

Nice working balun
  Review by Lester Mountain on Apr 29, 2011
This passive balun works great, so good in fact I'd swear it was an active balun with power input. Use CAT5 for your cable run and place a balun on the end of each run. The video image is clear and interference free, there is no noise or ghosts and the color is correct.

Nice Cat5 Converter
  Review by Gambill, Tom on Apr 14, 2011
These 4 channel passive video baluns really save me a lot of time and hassle. We have existing CAT5 UTP in our offies that are not being used so all I had to do was attach the baluns to each end of the CAT5 and we were up and running in no time. They really do work, and I recommend these unconditionally.

Nice converter
  Review by Chuck Doolittle on Mar 29, 2011
This works great for converting CAT5 cable back over to RG59 or more precisely, BNC type connectors. I bought 2 of these for my 7 camera system and they work great. Nice clear picture and I haven't noticed any interference yet.

We bought these for the security cameras in our computer lab. Network wire was already installed under floor panels so we just used an existing open Cat 5 Ethernet cable. I'm a computer geek and not a security camera guy. I wouldn't have known about these if it wasn't for your security expert's advice. Thanks!
