Good, but not great – RJ45 Network Cable 1-to-2 Female-Female Spliter Coupler Reviews

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

Pros:
It works as a splitter, but only one device at a time. Which is fine for me, because I need to have 2 network connections which I don't use at the same time.
Cons:
If two devices are connected, it links a the slowest speed even though the slower device is turned off (in my case a xbox360). Now I still have to unplug a cable to enjoy gigabit ethernet.
Other:
Bottomline:
It does what it does. It's simple to use and it can save you the extra long cable. Just remember that you can't use two devices at the same time and you'll enjoy this product. It's probably normal auto negotiation fails (since it's not a switch or hub), but it is a shame.
