  • It works. But NOT Gigabit capable

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

    Pros:

    - Decent build quality

    - Compact for 2metres worth of cable

    - the flimsy catch of the RJ45 head is protected when cable is retracted

    - It works

    Cons:

    - NOT gigabit compatible as advertised !

    (yes, I tested with a gigabit switch & gigabit port. I got 1gbps connection with my old cable, but with this, it only works at 100mbps)

    OtherThoughts:

    Not sure whether I'm just unlucky to get a piece that's slightly off. Maybe I should RMA ?

    Bottomline:

    Disappointed at that its not gigabit.

    DX, please correct the specs stated on the page.
