    Good for occasions

    posted by goostom on 05/29/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I often go to places where there is still no wireless internet available and where we have to plug our laptop in with an ethernet cable. Since regular cables can take up some space in your bag, this cable is small in size.
    Cons:
    The wires aren't twisted like normal UTP-cable. Be aware of this and that it can be a cause of getting EMI (Electro Magnetic In...

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

    Pros:
    Great product, rolls up to a very small packet. Easy to store and to take with you when you need to work in unknown offices. (Have you ever strolled through an office building searching for a simple network cable because there are none supplied at the desk ...
    Cons:
    It is a bit short so the connection point must be nearby (approx. 1,5 mtr). The clips to secure the connection are not shielded...

    Pros:
    This is a simple device, it works just as advertised. Build quality is fine and the cable retracts just fine as you would expect. I've bought two and are very happy with their performance. I would happily recommend this product.
