This is an amazing deal on these connectors. These are real AMP connectors made by Tyco P/N 5-554720-3. At this price get a box you really can't go wrong.
The downside is that these are rated as CAT-3 and not CAT-5e connectors. The thing is that there really is no discernible difference as far as the connector is concerned. They will work fine with CAT-5e cable.
Be aware that these are designed for solid core cable but I don't see a problem using them with stranded cable either.
These connectors have been made in the US, shipped to Hong Kong and then shipped back to North America for less than it would cost to buy locally. In fact DigiKey are charging $56 + shipping for a box of 100 of these.
