The first thing I did when receiving these was try them out on the 4-hole plate. They work just fine, and do not bump into one another in that side-by-side setup. I think the complaint people have must be based on the super-narrow "Decora" plates (the width of a light switch), because these jacks worked fine with the standard plates I ordered from Monoprice.
PROS: 1. Great price.
2. They fit side by side in a 4 hole keystone plate (regular, single-gang plate sold by monoprice, NOT the skinny "light switch" decora plate)
CONS: None so far, though I haven't "fluke tested" the connections.
PROS: Nice, cheap, great for non Decora style wall plates. (or up to 3 place max)
CONS: These WILL NOT FIT side by side in the Decora style wall plates! (Of any manufacturer)
If you need to put 2 side by side then you should use Leviton's jack, the Leviton keystone jack is .63" (5/8") and these are .75" (3/4") wide.
Prompt shipping, no errors in quantity. Thanks Monoprice!
PROS: Great for the price! Both "A" and "B" configurations clearly labeled. Every one passed testing after installation.
CONS: Don't expect these to fit side-by-side in a 4 or 6 port keystone. They are too wide. I used these in a 2 and 3 port wall plate so was fine.
CONS: Wiring maps were sometimes different from similar product. Had to be on your toes to get them all right.
PROS: Works great, easy to punchdown
CONS: Not much other than being too wide for the 12-jack wallplate.
Just as a note, these will fit just fine side-by-side in the 4- and 6- hole Keystone wall plates sold by Monoprice. It's possible to get 6 of these on a wall plate the trick is to insert the ones at the top of the plate first and work your way down. Getting them out might be another problem hopefully not one I will have to encounter. Worst case you have to snap the plate and use a new one.
PROS: Price, solid connection.
CONS: None so far.
PROS: Work reliably.
Easy to install once you get the hang of it.
Includes zip-tie for strain-relief.
CONS: Minor: no documentation included for how to choose between 568A vs 568B wiring, etc (but this is covered by the video above).
-Can work without the use of tools
CONS: -Almost never gets full connection on first try
PROS: Very easy to wire and worked perfectly the first time. The color coding for the TIA-568A abd B specs couldn't be more plain. I actually used this on a 30 foot Cat6 cable that I bougut from Monoprice that had connectors on both ends.
CONS: I'd really have to hunt for CONS! If there are any they are well concealed!
if you can, use cat6 wire, terminals and ends. it is much better than 5e in the long term.
