    Great Value in Jack
    I have been installing, terminating, testing and certifying fiber/stp/utp/coax/twinax for almost 13 years. I have spent as much as $20 (per jack) for IBM type 1A and have found cheap Chinese RJ45 for $0.40
    In some cases, I am going through hundreds of jacks in a single day (new construction) or just need a couple for a single cable drop.
    I purchased these specific jacks to replenish the single packs in my tool grab-bags. (and so far have only used a couple). I am very pleased with the ease of use.
    Time will tell if the cables creep (I have had happen with some major label and most china-made ones), but they had low loss and noise when certified with the TDR.
    I will definitely purchase more of these.

    PROS: -inexpensive
    -very clearly labeled wire chart on jack (better than the direct ink to plastic)
    -comes with insert tool (not needed)
    -narrow keystone jack (fit 6 gang wallplates and Leviton biscuit surface mount boxes)
    -best of the sub $3 RJ45 jacks.

    CONS: -none so far (only have had for a month)

    Easy to use keystone jack
    No tools required, simply strip the jacket off, separate the wires, put them in the color coded spots and squeeze closed. Trim the ends off and pop into the cover.

    PROS: Easy and quick to use.

    CONS: None found

    Great Product!!! Easy To Use!!!
    This is a great product and very easy to use. Once you understand the wiring diagram you can set them up in no time. I used 12 of them to wire my home. I used 6 different colors so I know where each jack goes. The first one took about 10 minutes to set up. Once I knew what I was doing it took about 5 minutes per jack. A small straight slot screwdriver will make it easier to set the wires in place. Also, a pair of wire cutters to trim the excess wire. You wont be disappointed.

    keystone jacks
    I was not familiar with keystone jacks, I had used pandiut and allentel before (both much more expensive), I found 'blank patch panels' which are very helpful, you can add ports one at a time, and move them as required, instead of having to punch down the entire panel at once (or kind of a mess to move ports). Also the 'blank panel' allows you to use other keystone type jacks, such as RG6 and CAT6, allowing a very nice install. The keystone jacks were easy to wire (take your time and make sure the wires are even across to assure a good connection, (just a suggestion)), I wired 250+ jacks and did not have a single failure!

    PROS: quick, easy, work well, great price

    CONS: none

    this works nice
    I am running a whole boatload of baluns in my house I need lots of cabling for this purpose.

    vga over ethernet x 6
    usb over ethernet x 4
    camera over ethernet x 13

    i had to decide between crimping plugs and using this stuff I tried crimping and was very disheartened
    when I used this product, I was "heartened" it worked without a hitch, mind you I almost destroyed the first keystone jack because I didnt feed the wires through teh guides properly, and used pliers to close them.

    for the other end, I fed them properly and was able to close htem by hand

    a tip : make the wires you want to feed extra long so that they are easy to feed through then clip off the excess after closing the mouth

    PROS: I've never crimped anything in my life
    I was able to get a working cable in less than 2 minutes from opening the packaging

    CONS: kind of an expensive way to terminate wiring in my house (39 lan runs) vs just having plugs on the end

    Works great. Just don't forget to use solid wire instead of the cheap thin stranded stuff. Otherwise use thicker stranded cable.

    Very Easy
    Way cheaper than going with the brick and mortal type places.. Easy to use, just follow the wire diagram for either A or B and string them into the cap. Once you have them there you just press the cap into the connector until it clicks, they come with a little leverage tool to make it easy.

    Worked first time after testing, no need to redo any of them.

    Will definitely order again.

    Works perfectly!
    Purchased 2 of these and PID 2151 (25FT Cat5e 350MHz UTP Ethernet Network Cable - Black) to run ethernet from office to spare bedroom. The first one took a few minutes to connect as I was making sure the strands were placed correctly in the jack. The second one was easier to connect after doing the first one. Next project is surround sound!

    PROS: -Inexpensive
    -Nice quality
    -Easy to install

    CONS: -None
