    What is the depth of this product? Description says 10"x2.5" but what is the distance it stands off the back wall? This is important for checking clearance in an enclosure
    Grant B on Jan 16, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. The product dimensions are 254mm(W) x 57.15mm(H) x 47mm(D) I hope this helps, and of course if you have any more questions feel free to contact us!
    How is the stability of this when only mounted to a wall and not in a rack? Is it easy to remove the front panel to access the punchdowns? Or must the entire thing be removed to do that?
    New User U on Apr 22, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: This is designed to be mounted on a wall or board and not made for racks. There is a bracket that is screwed into the wall and the patch panel snaps into it. To do the punch downs you can pop out the panel and snap it in to the bracket backwards to access the 110 block. Then just flip it back around when done.
    Will this patch panel work with solid and stranded Cat6?
    Jim S on Jul 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Solid copper only. Stranded category cable is not meant to be punched down...ever

    Cheap/Bad 110-style insulation displacement connectors (IDC)
    We used these in Leviton Structured Media Center Enclosures with Monoprice's cat 6 23awg cable with the spline in it (8103) and with ICC jacks at other end. I've used thousands of ICC jacks, hardly a failure ever. In short, I had to insert my phone pick inside the IDC on the panel and "slide" the contacts closer to each other in order to make it work in many of the ports. Won't be using these anymore.

    CONS: Flimsy, many failures, not worth the hourly cost of troubleshooting. Skip and buy a known brand.

    By the specs and price, this seemed like a good value. Once I was holding it, though, it was apparent that this has been value-engineered a bit too far: the metal bezel is marginal, the white plastic mounting frame is very flimsy. Also, plugged a patch cable in and noticed that the ports are set too deep behind the bezel ... the snag guard on any of the various brands of patch cables all hit the bezel before the plug was deep enough in the jack to catch. Bummer ... the snag guards have to be squished back with your fingernail with quite a bit of force to get the plugs to clip in. I'm also not a fan of split punchdowns, where two pairs go to one side of the PCB and two go to the other. I assume this makes the PCB layout and port soldering marginally cheaper, but it does make for a messier punchdown. That's especially a problem for this unit, since the white frame is too shallow and too flimsy. But, the ports themselves were the real problem. Note that I was using my trusty 15 year old spring tool on low setting - never had trouble with this tool before. Admittedly, I was using some relatively cheap Rosewill CAT-6 UTP, which I've never tried before. My first punchdown tested with 6 of 8 wires conducting. No big deal ... repunched with a bit more force (tool still on low) and got 7 of 8. OK, tried harder (tool still on low) and finally got all 8. Next port: 5 of 8. Three repunches only got me 7 of 8. Now I'm getting frustrated. Set the tool to high force and started to ease into a repunch ... the PCB was flexing so much that I stopped before the tool even punched. Still 7 of 8. Just for grins I then retested the first port (which had gotten to 8 of 8. Now, it's gone down to 6 of 8. Really??? On a whim, I started to rotate the whole panel assembly, and the two bad wires became intermittent. Gently flexed the back of the plastic port and got the same thing. Very frustrated at this point. Tried a scrap of cable (same Rosewill cat6) on the third port and got same intermittent problems. So, at this point the job was in peril (I pull towards the panel and punch to length), and I was assuming that one of three things was wrong: 1) Rosewill cable was junk, 2) this panel was junk, or 3) both the cable and panel are marginal but totally imcompatible with eachother. It was cheaper and way easier to order a new/different panel (Tripp-Lite brand, twelve bucks more expensive than this one) than to re-pull a different brand of Cat6 cable. Guess what? 100% success. Every port, no repunches required. Also, the tripp-lite is much higher build quality, more intelligent PCB routing (all wires on a single side), and doesn't interfere with snag guards on patch cables.

    In summary, this product failed for me. I would like to give it zero stars, but felt I should have tested it with a variety of Cat6 cabling first. Since I didn't, I'll give it two stars. Since the job got done with a better product, I'm not interested in a replacement and I'll avoid these panels in the future. Incidentally, every other Monoprice network product that I've used (many dozens of keystone jacks) have worked flawlessly.

    PROS: Affordable. Well diagramed color sequence.

    CONS: Flimsy, poor construction.

    Jacks are recessed too deeply behind faceplate.

    Either poor quality control, or fragile PCB, resulting in bad ports.

    Loose jacks cause pin shorts
    Shaking cords plugged in can cause connects/disconnects to occur due to shorts. In my testing, pins 5+6+7 and 1+2 will occasionally short when a jack is not seated properly. This was tested both with a known working cable and also with spare monoprice brand CAT6 plugs. Even just inserting the plug into the jack (with no cable attached) would cause the pins to short.

    PROS: It works if the cables are in the exact right spot.

    CONS: Some cables don't work at all no matter how much I wiggle them.

    Excellent value
    All around, great bang for your buck. It's just as easy (if not easier) to wire, and the quality is on par with much more expensive patch panels. The only complaint I have is that the plastic mounting bracket's arms aren't long enough. When mounted, the panel sits too close to the wall, so it's REALLY tough to get it securely in the bracket once you have all the wires connected. And I only ran 10 cables to each of mine (have 2). I can only imagine it being even worse with a full 12. But this is a minor complaint, and you can't go wrong for $15 and change

    PROS: Very cheap. Good enough build quality. Well laid out, makes for easy wiring.

    CONS: Mounting bracket not deep enough, panel very tough to get clipped in once you have all the cables wired.

    Does the job
    This works just fine. The colors on the punchdown seem to correspond to one standard, while generally I followed the "A" sticker. That worked for me, so it seems that they fixed whatever labeling issue they had before.

    I don't really know how you're supposed to organize the wiring when you insert it back into the mounting brackets

    Finally, it looks like it's essentially two six-port patch panels stick together. I only needed six ports, but I've never found a patch panel smaller than 12. I wish Monoprice would sell a 6 port patch panel, but whatever, I'm not rewiring it again now that it's done and works.

    PROS: Relatively compact, fits in my home communication hub
    Does its job

    CONS: Awkward wiring
    Lack of space in the back
    Have to be gentle punching down wires

    Completely defective
    Heed the advice of others that experienced the same issue I have. The whole thing was almost a complete failure. After wiring up several jacks and testing the connections with a cable tester, there were immediate failures as soon as the panel was placed back into its mounting bracket. A couple ports immediately failed. Rewiring those lines to new, previously unused ports was not successful. After hooking a cable up to a cable tester while connected to the failing ports, I could see various wires come on/offline as I wiggled the cable. Further, after deciding to get things up and running just enough keep myself online with a device or two until an RMA could be requested, previously working ports begin to fail within the hour. The entire thing was a scrap and I ended up re-crimping rj45 jacks and running direct in order to get back online. Wasted several hours running around checking ports and troubleshooting cable connections.

    PROS: None.

    CONS: Everything.

    Bad Patch Panel
    2nd Patch Panel purchased that was bad. 3 of 12 ports did not work when punched down.

    PROS: Inexpensive.

    CONS: Unfortunately, this is a situation where you get what you pay for as this is second time this has happened with a patch panel from Monoprice. Will not have a third.

    Great little patch panel
    It was well worth the less than $16 it cost me for this patch panel. This was a breeze to install as it comes with good instructions. It even has a template for cutting the whole in your wall if you are passing cabling from behind the drywall. I know that there have been some reviews as to the cabling diagrams on the back being wrong, but the one I got had the correct wiring pinout shown on back so that problem must have been resolved.

    TIP 1: If you are unsure about the pinout, then just terminate ONE port and then TEST to make sure it is correct.

    I didn't use the provided punch down tool to punch the wiring down but I did use it for stripping the sheathing off of the CAT6 cabling I ran - it worked great for that. The patch panel also came with a couple of zip ties so you can dress your cabling once your done.

    TIP2: If you will be cabling all 12 ports, then start punching down the wiring on the port nearest the cable entry on the patch panel. For example, if you are installing the panel vertically and the cabling is coming the top of the panel, then punch down port 1 first and work you way down. You'll thank me later.

    I haven't done any speed tests yet on this panel yet. I'll update once that happens.

    PROS: Easy to use
    Great price
    Good diagrams on back when terminating wires
    Comes with wall bracket that allows for quick mount/dismount of patch panel

    CONS: Not made in America

    Nice patch panel
    We used this to wire up a home and had no issues at all. The panel is easy to install with the wall bracket and the panel fits in the bracket well. Easy to punch down with standard equipment.

    PROS: Easy to install wall bracket

    Doesn't require rack

    CONS: None

    I'm absolutely thrilled with the price/performance of this product. It's a great way to terminate all the CAT5/6 running through my house for Ethernet and telephone lines. It even includes, which I didn't use, a punch down tool if you don't have one.

    PROS: Price
    Sturdy Construction - you would never know this wasn't one of the $50+ alternatives

    CONS: None
