1.0 out of 5 stars Tedious, slow, unreliable terminations
Reviewed in the United States on 11 September 2020
I have installed many hundreds of Platinum Tools EZ-RJ45 Cat5e connectors, I love the wire pass-through feature, and I rarely had a cable I made fail a cable test. So I bought this 10Gig kit expecting that I would be enamored with it. Boy was I WRONG!
1. The wire ends do not pass through the end of the connector on these, so you must cut them very precisely and be extremely diligent about pushing them all of the way up into the connector. Typical cable test failure is when one wire doesn't touch the end, and the cable will fail a test. Never had this issue with their other products.
2. The tiny, cheap, wire-guide inserts are difficult to slide over the wires, occasionally cause one (or more) of the wires to switch out of the 568B order, and they are extremely easy to drop or lose. Another cause of cable test failure.
3. You must *perfectly* straighten all 8 wires, cut them flawlessly at 90 degrees at precisely the correct length (this you have to learn on your own, no guide or template tool is included), then insert them through the tiny guide without them changing position, then slide the wires a guide all of the way into the connector with all of the ends fully into the connector without the tiny insert snagging inside of the connector or allowing a wire to catch on something so it doesn't get inserted fully. Very frustrating and aggravating.
4. After all of this effort be prepared for 20-25% of your finished cables to fail a cable test due to any one of the things I mentioned above. Yesterday I had to do 20 terminations using this kit. I had to redo 5 of the terminations despite being *very* methodical and careful because they failed a cable test. Doing these 20 terminations consumed 3 hours.
I am a skilled, experienced installer, and I regret this purchase.
