PROS: Excellent product at a cheap price

PROS: Easy to read label for both 568A or B termination
PROS: The price is great!!!
CONS: They could be slimmer, they won't fit in certain close tolerance face plates.
PROS: Cost is good, easy to work with
CONS: If you are putting these in a 1-gang patch panel, stick to the 16-port or less. You can mostly get 2 side-by-side...mostly...
PROS: Quality plastic and construction
CONS: No cons really, may see a lower or free shipping cost for quantity purchases
PROS: Great Jack as long as you're not loading into a patch panel or side x side faceplate.
CONS: Too big
PROS: uh.. they are cat5e and it ends there. They should have the word SLIM removed and be put on clearance!
CONS: This item along with items 10040, 10041, 10042, 10043, 10044, 10045, 10046 and 10047 are NOT SLIM and will not fit SIDE by SIDE as advertised. These items are virtually and visually identical in width to their other Cat5 Keystones. My research today shows, Monoprice was notified and knew of this issue as early as 1/30/13 (see review item 10041) and acknowledged by representative John Lingo. This was almost 2 years ago! It was identified and acknowledged again by John Lingo on item 10042 review dated 5/6/14. What up Monoprice?
Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear about the issues experienced with these keystones. The “Slim” description for these keystones refers to the difference in width when compared to our regular Cat5e punch down keystones such as PID 5371. If I may ask, did you use one of our wall plates with these keystones? If so, what is the PID of the wall plate? I should mention that these keystones will not fit side-by-side in our wall plates that have 6 or more holes due to the limited spacing between each however they will fit with wall plates that have 4 or fewer holes. Please let me know so I can pass this info along to our product team. I will also put in a suggestion to have the descriptions revised. Apologies again for any inconvenience and hope this helps!

CONS: Worthless. Doesn't fit in Monoprice's keystone jack panel (PID 7260).
