Adequate performance not 100% – Compact Retractable Male to Male RJ45 Ethernet LAN Cable - Blue (2.0M-Length) Reviews

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

Pros:
Cheap, build quality is alright, the retractable/rewind button makes networking around my computer very neat
Cons:
The cable doesn't allow full speeds when it isn't fully pulled out. I don't get 100Mbps LAN speeds I only get 10Mbps - this happens randomly, I've noticed that I when I pull the cable out fully (2.0 meters) then I can get 100Mbps but only sometimes.
Other:
My reason for buying this was so that I didn't have to see ugly LAN wires all over the place - this would be great if I could only pull out and use just the wire I need and not the whole thing.
Bottomline:
Extremely cheap and neat solution to the standard LAN cable mess - however you may still need to pull out and use the whole length of cable which sort of defeats the purpose
