Easy to use, cost-effective midspans12/21/2010
These midspans perform adequately and are easy to set up (just plug in each end and power). I would love a side-bus for these to share power over since they can be "snapped" together which would ease cabling a little bit (reduce the # of power cables), but that's what you buy a real midspan for, I guess.
