Cons: It is not certified for Cat5. BELKIN has other couplers that meet Cat5 performance requirements. They have part numbers CNP001WaedS (white plastic) and R6G055-H (metal).
Pros: all I can say is that it works there is not much to it
Overall Review: I had back surgery and we did not have wireless internet so I bought this couple to make longer run of cat 5 to my front room so I had a lap top I could get on the internet from my easy chair.
Pros: Inexpensive, disassembles easily
Cons: Not Cat5e, not compatible with all TIA-968-A spec (non-keyed) 8-position plugs. Had to replace plugs on Generic and Linksys brand net cables with Ideal pn 85-346 for reliable operation.
Overall Review: Used 2 of these for a POE injector/splitter combo. Both had contact engagement issues prior to replacing plugs (see Cons above).
Pros: Was able to use an existing spare patch cable to extend a pre-installed cable by 6 feet. Didn't have to buy a longer cable and re-run it, saving time and money.
Cons: Not Cat5E certified, but it works
Pros: Worked fine for awhile.
Cons: I Plugged and unplugged it 5 to 6 times, but the last time I used it, No Signal, it feels like the contacts are no longer clicking into place like they used to. I have tried several combinations of known working cables, but I get no signals.
Overall Review: It's not worth sending back, so it's into the garbage.
Pros: Works As Described, Simple, Cheaper Than Brick & Mortar Stores
Overall Review: Wish they cost a little bit less, But it is still cheaper then re-making or buying all new cables.
Pros: Good price compared to others found elsewhere. Does the job right and doesn't seem to cause packet loss.
Cons: It is not Cat5e certified. Can still be used in a networking environment, but I wouldn't use it as a permanent solution.
Overall Review: It serves me well when I need to extend a cable to another computer for repair or updates.
Pros: What can I say.. Works and the price was a 1/3 of what the "other" places were selling it for..
Overall Review: As I said price was low...I got two...Hey you never know!!!Newegg does it again....
