I'm trying to run a 25 ft USB extender or USB to Cat 5/6 adapter from my PC in the room to the TV in the living room. My main concern is in regard to input delay / latency at the specified length not data transfer speeds.

I'm planning to attach a wireless PS4 game-pad, wireless keyb/mouse to a hub at the end of the adapter going into the living room, and then use a separate 25 ft HDMI cable for video.

I already got word on the 5 meter limitation for USB 2.0, which requires either a USB hub or repeater for a smooth signal, but again, my main concern is input delay.

Does anyone have hands on experience testing these two methods side by side? Which is better?
