    Very small, yet fairly long You can carry it everywhere and inside everything Flat cable may break as it's not fixed to the connector ends (The piece that does that is not long to get a flat cable) The retractible piece is going to fail eventually The ends are a bit bended if the bag you carry it is not hard (or not bag at all) so be careful I haven'...

    It's a good and convenient product for anyone who's always on the go. I often need to use a network cable at my uni and was tired of having to carry a big one all the time, this one takes almost no space, weights almost nothing and does what it's supposed to. The build quality isn't the best, I have two of them, the first I bought isn't very nice to ... Read more

    looks hightech and sleek in your laptop bag as compared to a standard 1.5 meter network cable. even not as quick as other network cable, it does the job. if the retraction worked better after prolong or constant use, i would have given a five star on build quality but it did not. after using two of these for over fifty times with my cable tester, both ...

    Good, convenient product, which is easy to carry around without taking up lots of space. Does not give Gigabit connectivity - only 100MBit max :-( Furthermore the clip on one of the plugs to keep it securely inside an Ethernet port is very flimsy and I'm convinced it's going to break off completely at any moment! Maybe DealExtreme should clearly indicate ... Read more

    Absolutely useful and handy ethernet cable, suitable for those people likely to travel or commute a lot. Quality is the weak point of the item. I've used many network cables and I know what a strong cable is. This one is not, but I believe that if you take care enough, it won't break easily. Except for the "shell", that is strong enough to ... Read more

    So it's cheap - and it works using a hub which I know is what it is intended for and I know it's not a cross-over cable so I can't expect too much more than that. Even if it's NOT a crossover cable - these days even straight through cables are detected on windows machines and automatically crossed over at the network card to make Node to Node connectivity ...

    It is one of the items that deal extreme could be proud of. It comes with a very reassonable price and the built quality is good. You will not face any problems with the quality and it can be of use in several cases. You can buy more items for your friends as a gift and you won't dissapoint yourself. It is one of the items that Deal Extreme can be proud ... Read more

    * Simple to use (one end to your computer the other one to the socket/hub/router/etc) * Cheap: cheaper than sku.23871, which I also own, without compromising quality. * Retractable: won't clutter your bag while travelling None that I can think of. Some people complains in general about the click noise of the this retractable cords but it's not a nuisance ... Read more
