    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    - Good, high quality connector.
    - IDC contacts work fine with solid wire.

    Cons:

    - To get the full benefits of the connector, you need an AMP crimper or crimper die insert.

    - Not Category 6 compliant.

    OtherThoughts:

    Despite what I said, an AMP crimper is not REQUIRED to use these connectors. The third crimping point in the middle is unused on most other connectors, and is used to hold down the wires out of the jacket. For normal purposes, the jacket clamp and the contacts are more than adequate.

    Bottomline:

    Get these if you need to do a major Cat5/e cabling job. It's much cheaper than most other retail stores.
