Limited uses – RJ45 Network Cable 1-to-2 Female-Female Spliter Coupler Reviews

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

Pros:
Don't know if something like this has any real "pros" to speak of.
Cons:
Don't know if something like this has any real "cons" to speak of. ;)

Alright, MAYBE the lack of gold-plated pins (to be expected at this price point).
Other:
As others have intimated, people need to understand that you can't use this to connect two PCs to a single network connection. It's not a substitute for a network switch, hub or router. What are its uses then? Well, it can be used to insert a temporary "tap" in an existing network line. Just be aware that two PCs cannot use the main network simultaneously.
Bottomline:
It is what it is. And it isn't what it isn't. (Does that make sense?) It does have its (limited) uses, though these uses might not be of interest to most people.
