    Does its job

    posted by MaxK47 on 08/22/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    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.
    Cons:
    The build quality isn't the best, I have two of them, the first I bought isn't very nice to retract anymore, and I've used it s...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    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.
    Cons:
    if the retraction worked better after prolong or constant use, i would have given a five star on build quality but it did not. ...

    Absolutely useful and handy ethernet cable, suitable for those people likely to travel or commute a lot.

    WARNING Does Not Work Computer to Computer!

    posted by Svirtech on 07/12/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    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.
    Cons:
    Even if it's NOT a crossover cable - these days even straight through cables are detected on windows machines and automatically...

    Pros:
    * 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
    Cons:
    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 n...
