Great value for money – SMA 1.5 DIY Connector Plug (5-Pack) Reviews

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

Pros:
-Great price. Again, nobody can beat this price. I have seen these connectors for $5,00... EACH! -Easy to solder the center pin when you use a 1mm tip on a 50W iron. You need to go into a small gap and don't want to touch/heat the screen housing causing short circuit. -Build quality is extremely good. The coax braid actually needs to go under the crimping sleeve.
Cons:
Ease of use may be a little harsh when you don't posess a crimping tool. It is also possible to solder the coax braid, but only when high quality teflon cable is used.
Other:
It would be good if DX sold a fitting crimping tool for this connector.
Bottomline:
Excellent deal from DX again!!
