Cat6 Inline Coupler Type Keystone Jack - White
Easy to use coupler style keystones allow you to use RJ45 terminated cables in the front and the back eliminating the need to splice wires while standing behind a rack. You can use pre-terminated fix length cables as well, eliminating the need for crimping. Fits all standard keystone wall plates and panels.
I was thinking of ordering more to replace the broken ones but hesitated since its not clear if Monoprice found a new manufacturer for them and/or fixed whatever was wrong with their reliability.
From my testing, the contacts inside the coupler seem to crack or disconnected. If you apply pressure in a certain direction, the connection seems to reappear, but as soon as you stop applying pressure, the connection is broken.
Its strange since it doesn't seem that complicated of a device (its a coupler) to expect such poor reliability. My use (which I suspect is the same as most) is not very frequent. Once I've installed them into the outlet, I make the connection once and leave it alone. They seemed to break once they were disconnected from the wall (I replaced a network switch) which seems absurd as I could count on 1 hand how many times I connected / re-connected the cable.
I've never had an issue with Monoprice products before this and hope it gets fixed as its certainly making me doubt what I buy here. If it does get fixed, please make a note on the description to inform your customers.
PROS: Great connection and concept.
CONS: Ridiculously high failure rate.
Like other reviews have stated, the plastic housing is extremely cheap and they sound like they are going to break every time you plug/unplug a cable. Unfortunately it's not worth returning them since I paid $9 for all 5 and after shipping them back there would be no point.
First monoprice item I have been unhappy with. Save your money and purchase keystone adapters instead.
