SpaceSaver 19" Half-U Shielded Cat5e Patch Panel, 24 Ports, Dual IDC
As any system administrator knows, server rack space is expensive. Make the most out of your limited rack space by using this high-density, SpaceSaver 19" Half-U Shielded Cat5e 24-port Patch Panel from Monoprice!
This shielded patch panel is designed for Category 5e STP/FTP cable connections. It is rated for 350 MHz bandwidth and 100 Mbps data throughput. It features 24 RJ45 ports with Dual IDC headers situated 180° relative to the ports. The IDC headers are terminated using a 110-type punch down tool. The panel is compatible with 22-26 AWG solid or stranded solid-state and network cables. The panel includes color coded wiring diagrams for both T568A and T568B installations. The panel includes a 16" grounding cable with a ring terminal.
The patch panel measures 19" wide on the face and 17 1/4" wide on the body. It is 3 15/16" deep and 7/8" high. The frame features 24 C-shaped keyholes for cable strain relief. The packaging includes 24 3" zip ties, 2 rack mount screws, 2 plastic washers, 12 cable clamps, and 12 screws for the clamps.
Note: Over torquing the rack mount screws can cause damage to the mounting ears. The plastic washers are intended to be used with the rack mount screws to reduce the chance of over tightening the installation.

PROS: Well built, easy to punch down. I don't think it's any different that the "Cat 6" one. I'm getting solid gigabit on each port.
CONS: Screws didn't fit the Monoprice bracket, but I suspect that's the fault of the bracket, as the screws looked like standard rackmounts. I was able to re-tap one, and the other I drilled out and used a nut.
