Solid little enclosure

Pros: great value for the price.
Cons: a little larger than I need, but looks nice surface mounted on walls, panels, ceilings
Very nice little box for terminating cat5e. I used mine to house a 1-wire temp sensor (DS18B20) soldered some 24awg leads to the sensor, punched those down in the box, and then connected the sensor to my 1-wire network with cat5e

Pros: Inexpensive, sturdy, easy to use.
Cons: Was not a fan of the instructions, not a deal breaker.
I used a couple of these boxes for the rooms where I didn't want to go through the trouble of putting a jack in the wall. These are really easy to set up and come with screws to mount as well as sticky double-sided foam tape. My only complaint I don't understand why the pins aren't numbered sequentially, (i.e. 1,2,3,4,5,6...). It was just a little confusing, really doesn't matter as long as you make sure the other end of the cable is wired exactly the same. Also I used a really thin flathead screwdriver to push the wires down, make sure they are all the way down.

Pros: Good looking and very usable
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of these terminal boxes they were much better than I expected them to be. Easy termination and they even come with a small tie wrap to secure the cable. I would highly recommend these.

Pros: This product is an excellent value because cost of item is less than cost of enclosure and keystone jack. Removing cover does not require a tool.
Cons: Size is a bit large, but acceptable. Would prefer a more compact model. A label writing area is missing.
This is an excellent value when considering cost of individual components: enclosure and keystone jack. Removing cover does not require a tool.
RJ45 jack w/ housing

Pros: Convenient, very inexpensive, space saving.
Cons: I have to use up my existing supplies of inserts and surface boxes.
I've been using a variety of RJ45 inserts for a long time (ICC has been my favorite) and, of course, having to buy separate surface boxes to go with them. No more. These all-in-one jacks are the perfect solution. They punch down very easily and are even attractive. Can't beat the price, as inserts and separate boxes are normally far more.
