We moved into a new house and the existing CAT5e cables weren't long enough to be plugged into an Ethernet switch. Used these inline connectors to extend cables from patch panel to a PoE switch. Both powered (PoE) and non powered equipment worked perfectly.

Pros: Durable construction. Metal never separates or loosens like the plastic couplers. Gigabit still functions over long, coupled runs, so attenuation is within acceptable parameters

Cons: Need to concentrate when inserting 8P8C connector to make it fit due to snug connection, though this could be counted as a pro as well. Has somewhat larger footprint than most of its plastic counterparts.

Ordered these several times over the years and have never seen a failure. Definitely recommend the durable metal construction over plastic if you're planning on burying runs in floors, ceilings, or walls. I haven't tested it, but these should withstand being stepped on or hit by vacuums as well.

I tend to be very cost conscious, and Monoprice never disappoints. The coupler is sturdy and does the job. Not much else to say.

Pros: Durable construction,

Ordered a few of these for a temporary office relocation project. Didn't know where desks were going to end up, and was able to use the couplers to extend prebulit data cables from the switch once desks were in place.

The connections were a little snug, but I didn't have any serious difficulty in inserting the plugs into the couplers. I'd rather they be snug than loose. Couplers are slightly bulky, but not enough to rate an entry in the "con" field above.
