It works. But NOT Gigabit capable – Compact Retractable Male to Male RJ45 Ethernet LAN Cable - Black (2.0M-Length) Reviews

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

Pros:
- Decent build quality
- Compact for 2metres worth of cable
- the flimsy catch of the RJ45 head is protected when cable is retracted
- It works
Cons:
- NOT gigabit compatible as advertised !
(yes, I tested with a gigabit switch & gigabit port. I got 1gbps connection with my old cable, but with this, it only works at 100mbps)
Other:
Not sure whether I'm just unlucky to get a piece that's slightly off. Maybe I should RMA ?
Bottomline:
Disappointed at that its not gigabit.
DX, please correct the specs stated on the page.
