Okay quality, great price, rewireable as crossover – RJ45 Network Cable Extension Coupler Reviews

Pros:
Dirt cheap! Quality is better than I'd expected at that price.
Cons:
Contacts not gold plated, but if that's likely to be an issue in the environment you're using it in then you really ought to be using a single uninterrupted cable for that run instead.
Other:
Very easily rewired as a crossover joiner - in fact, that's what I mostly use these for, in cases where friends only have two machines they need to connect and can't justify the expense of a hub at this time. I'd gone through the last of my junkbox stock of these a couple of weeks ago, so I added five of them onto a bulkrate order I was putting in for something else.
Bottomline:
Good, cheap, useful. Also worth remembering as something to make up an order to a multiple of ten dollars if you're collecting points.
