    CAT5e Retractable Cable - RJ45 to RJ45 - 5 Ft

    You'll never deal with a tangled RJ45 cable again when you use this Cat5e Retractable Cable from Monoprice!

    This flat, 5-foot long Ethernet cable is wound around a central spring-loaded spool. Pulling on the two connector ends unwinds the cable, while the internal ratchet action keeps the cable extracted to the length you want. Pull the cable ends to their limit and the cable will easily wind itself back around the spool, thereby preventing tangles.

    The spool assembly measures about 1.8" in diameter and is about 0.6" thick.

    compact light way cable
    Needed a RJ45 cable to carry around. The portability and length makes this cable awesome. I hated carrying a full length cable. The retractable makes this a no brainier. Good quality.

    PROS: portable, good price, Good quality

    CONS: I have no cons as of yet.

    Almost perfect
    This really nifty, nicely designed, and modestly priced retractable cable is, like its smaller brother (3.5ft), a great way to reduce the insane tangle of wires that we all tend to end up with. Also, being real skinny and flexible, this cable can, unlike regular patch cables, make sharp turns over short distances, which often becomes necessary when components are either stacked one above the other or are right next to each other.

    The only reason I can't declare it to be 'perfect' is that the connector jacks are so short (5/8") that they all but disappear into some ports (particularly our router), making them pretty hard to unclip. Also, the housing is a little bigger than we expected (1.75" x 2.5").

    But overall I highly recommend it.

    Great Value and Dependable
    I haven't tried too many retractable Ethernet cables. However, on the whole the mechanism for retracting tend to break. I've had this occur on a USB retractable cable, 3.5mm audio retractable cable and a freebie Ethernet retractable cable.

    I'm using these cables from Monoprice to keep my workspace neat and clean and I plug/unplug these cables frequently every week. Still working great after several months and that's why I came back to order more.

    I do wish there were options for colors. It would help tremendously to be able to tell at a glance which cable is connected to what based on color. I am looking at cable identification system and hope I find one that works well with these retractable cables.

    PROS: Holds Up to Abuse

    Where Have You Been All My Life?
    I remember getting a similar product as a freebie at a hospitality trade show about 2 decades ago and thought to myself, "man, if they only made these for ethernet!"

    So when I saw these, especially on sale, I had to try them. I used one where it was stretched and twisted quite a bit and it still worked. A regular patch cable in the same application was showing a bit higher bandwidth (170 vs 160Mbps on the testing I was doing), but for the convenience of having one of these in a laptop case is second to none. The connectors on the ends are tiny and have the depth of telephone cord connectors, so you might find them a bit harder to disconnect, but that's a minor quibble that I can easily live with.

    Dead pretty quickly
    After only 5-6 uses, it stopped click-locking in place and would always be retracting. Tried to get it to catch, but it then came out of its spool and won't retract at all anymore.

    Maybe I got a bad one?
