Monoprice H&S is on time
CONS: the coupler is fragile
They work intermittently if you press the cable into the jack further (further than the latch on the cable already holds it in). I have 1 that I have taped in because I ran out of spares to swap out when this one started acting up.
Maybe I should have gone with a premade patch panel instead.
PROS: Inexpensive, Easy to Install
CONS: High failure rate
However, they really are not the best quality, and the only way that I've found to prevent them from falling apart is to tape them together before ever trying to use them. Out of 72 of these, 8 of them are now in pieces and the number would have been higher, but that's where I drew the line and removed them all until sufficient electrical tape had been wasted. (And once they fall apart, they really do not go back together thanks to all the exposed contacts)
This is really disappointing as I vouched for monoprice to the company I work for and this was their first order. Although overall, the experience was mostly positive (thanks to the cables and mounts), there is still a bitter taste left behind by these couplers.
Please fix this or we will continue to look elsewhere until a replacement has been found.
PROS: Very cheap and can potentially prevent a lot of work when setting up a network. When working, they do the job very well. Easy to snap in place as well.
CONS: The casing is very cheap and falls apart even with considerable care.
