Pre pinned, mounted cable, winning time – Breadboard Jumper Wires for Electronic DIY (70-Cable Pack) Reviews

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

Pros:
I simply cannot find there already mounted/soldered cable nearby!! if i want, i have to take ide/scsi ribbon and try to find the plug to sold etc....
This is simply making me win money, time (most) and are so easy to use.
I already have used them to "update" the wiring of my diving computer companion, this was already "DIY"ed because it was old. But the first "correction" were also have tighting problem.
I have taken the cable and replaced all connexion (9v battery, intenal wiring, connection to my diving computer thanks to the furnished pin (lucky i am, correct size)). Now it's working marvelously :-).
I also used sku.80207 which is the companion of this set.
I also have used them to connect additional led to my computer extension card so i can have all indication shown outside, this with only cutting one in 2 parts, so I have both pin to connect to tinny holes (yes, indeed, this is not a normal design as normally pins should be on the extension card and sku.80207 used in that case) connect them and connect a simple led the other side (i have added additional wiring to have long enough cable).
I was searching this kind of pre cabled wires for years !!!
My futur usage: LED DIY wiring, but this can be a cons to see
Cons:
I find the wire a bit too tin in diameter, so high Amp/volt can be an issue, will see in other "DIY" plans. This is a small con againt pro !
Other:
Bottomline:
Magic wires, pre mounted, pre soldered, what a gain of time !
