Are the repeaters mains powered? if they aren't then the signal if it gets from one end to the other would probably be degraded. How much would they cost compared with the USB-Cat5-USB system?

Have you looked in your local computer and electronics stores at the prices of USB-Cat5-USB systems? With christmas coming up in under 2 months, chances are that shops will have sales on. Also there are auction sites which might have them listed.
