    These suck!
    I have been installing cabling for 15 years. In a pinch I bought these ends from Monoprice with some of their STP cabling. Bad bad bad. The cabling labeled as 24 AWG when in actuality it is more like 23 AWG. The ends are not made for anything larger than 26 AWG, from what I can tell. I was not able to get one cable to seat correctly. The cables would not make it far enough for the pins to make contact because the outer jacketing was way too thick for the open of the connector not to mention having the drain wire there!

    PROS: They look like good ends

    CONS: They aren't good ends

    No inserts equals terrible
    Worthless when they don't come with the inserts. You will hate using these. Absolutely terrible and low end cheap. I love most Monoprice products, but this is terrible. Get rid of these Monoprice :(

    The "Installation guide" on this web page (http://www.monoprice.com/manual/How%20to%20-%20crimp%20RJ45%20w%20inserts.pdf) with this product shows the use of an insert. So silly me, I thought these would come with an insert, but they do not. Instead these are supposed to be "insertless." Trying to make cat6 cables without inserts is a real pain and I wish I never bought these and will likely throw them into the trash.

    PROS: cheap

    CONS: No inserts make these almost impossible to use.

    Avoid these with PID 2271

    PROS: After you spend 10 minutes trying to get leads in proper order, anger is replaced with relief..that is until the next one.

    CONS: Not to be used with PID 2271 in my opinion, way too difficult to use.

    Does not lock
    Unfortunately these are useless, a gentle breeze/kitten sneeze/car passing in a nearby county will leave you with cables laying on the floor instead of their port. This is my first and only negative review on a monoprice product, and I have been a loyal customer for years, this one is just a disappointment.

    PROS: They look nice, crimped without issue

    CONS: They will not lock in anything, including monoprice's own RJ45 female keystones, multiple NIC's, and multiple switches.

    RJ-45 goodness
    I have used ridiculous amounts of these connectors. I have never had one fail or give me any issues. They are listed for stranded wire but I use them with solid wires and it's perfect! I have used Cat6 STP and UPT and both fit just fine.

    PROS: Much cheaper cost than anywhere else and they do job and do it very well.

    CONS: None.

    Not too bad!
    These performed better than expected. My last set of Shielded RJ45 connectors were a pain to get installed as the wires would move around all over the place Inside the connector and just before I crimp. With these, they stay in place to a point where I can make a solid crimp. So far, I've made 4 cables and they are all registering Gigabit speeds, unlike my last set. Monoprice comes through again. Hopefully they will make a 50pack and/or a shielded set with Inserts as I'd like to try those out too in the future.

    PROS: -Wires stay in place
    -All cables registering Gigabit Speed so far (using STP Cat6 from Monoprice)

    CONS: -Need to make one with Inserts
    -after crimping, it looks like the brass crimp that goes into the wires may slide, but I have yet to run into one

    Great: after some trial and error/practice
    This past weekend was my first dive into creating/terminating my own patch cables/CAT6. The monoprice "how to" video is a good start but I would say a few more techniques were required to master not only these I'm sure, but most ends/terminations etc. Plan to waste a few trying different techniques but once I had it down they work great. None have failed me yet. Take your time and try not to get frustrated. Once you figure it out it's very straight forward.

    If you like manual labor, these are your plugs.
    The plugs are good quality and have shielding but can be difficult to crimp. The Cat6 stranded cable on Monoprice is slightly larger than the opening on the plug because of the shielding. It fits but you have to line the plastic spleen up diagonally to the plug and squish it a bit. Also don't over crimp the cables because the plastic tab would break when using the Cat 6 cable.

    If your used to making cables these plugs won't be a big problem. I have made about 30 cables so far with these plugs and it only takes me a minute or so to create each. However, I have had some less experienced people try to make some cables and they really struggled.

    PROS: Shielded plugs

    CONS: No inserts

    I notice many complains on these connectors. I however did not have any issues with the connectors. They are in a staggerd pattern, which if you have not worked with cat connectors very long could take some time to get use to. I would recommend these, they work great!

    PROS: Shielded, looks and fits great

    Great way to make your own cables
    These are awesome, but being shielded on 3 sides they make wire depth and color verification a little tricky. The locking tang isn't as rigid as I'd like (I don't get the sharp audible click), but it holds well. When you jam the spleen in and crimp, you'll get a very solid connector.

    PROS: Durable, professional, high quality

    CONS: The locking tang doesn't snap very loud and feels flimsy
