4 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: Crimps cables, strips patch cord. Overall a good item

Cons: 1 egg off since the latching mechanism does not always work. When i first used this product it would not latch at all. After a month it started to latch intermittently. Maybe in a couple months it will work perfectly..not sure whats going on with it.

Other Thoughts: The cable I bought recently to crimp was too thick on the individual wires so it forces me to use a wirestripper on each of the 8 wires inorder to crimp properly, not a fault of the crimper at all, but be mindful of the cable you purchase.

On a few occasions the the stripper and trimmer blades have had trouble getting through the plasted coating on cable, which leads to cutting to deep or not at all. This is also most likely due to the quality of cable i purchased, again, be mindful of the patch cable you purchase and enjoy this product!

5 out of 5 eggsbeats similar priced crimpers, easily

Pros: durable, affordable, sharp replaceable blades, ergonomic feel. ~400 ends terminated and still makes flawless cuts and crimps.

Cons: doesn't do ez-rj45 (wires pass through the 8p8c connector and are cut flush), but you won't find one that does for less than ~$80. Plus ez-rj45 is for slackers that didn't learn how to do a cable the right way. it's a cheat code, I'm telling' ya!

4 out of 5 eggsquite surprised

Pros: ive gotten wish wash recommendations for these but when on sale less than 20 and I just happened to break my old crimpers. i had to go for it.
made about 20 patch cat6 drop cables with these (40 crimps)
blades can come off. (can sharpen)
so far feels solid (havent broke on day one.)
great bang for buck

Cons: ratchet feature can get a bit annoying to release (have only been using for a day so ill probably get used to it)

Other Thoughts: these are meant for flat cables. you can still cut any cable but the spacing of the blades at full crimp are meant to cut 12mm space perfectly for flats. so if if you run flats all day then this is your guy.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome crimper

Pros: I bought this Ethernet crimper because it looked like it had a solid build quality. It does. The first time I used it, I knew right away that this ethernet crimper is a solid tool. It's not cheaply made, and it does the job perfectly.

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: I got this crimp tool so I can crimp ethernet cords when I need to make cables.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks just fine

Pros: Just got it and it seems to work great! I made a simple patch cable with no issues (other than learning how to actually make the cable).

Cons: The locking feature is a bit strange

Other Thoughts: Hope to use it more!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Robust, fonctionnal and easy to use.
With this tool I don't need anything else to make good ethernet cables. The grip is ok, the design made to strip wire is fonctionnal and easy to use. Overall, this item is more robust than I thought by looking at the picture.
It is a great product that saves me money by doing my own wire, but also, make me win some by making wire for my friends and familly.

Cons: I needed a little time to get used to the locking mechanism , an hour or two at max, but it's realy not a con.

5 out of 5 eggsLOVE THEM!

Pros: If I could rate this higher than 5 eggs, I would. Worth every penny, I would've paid twice what I did for them! Ratcheting feature is very nice, crimps RJ45 ends so easily.

Cons: Ratcheting "lock" feature can be a pain

Other Thoughts: Buy them, don't think - just buy. You'll be glad you did. I have a pair at work and a pair at home. I have thousands of crimps on my work pair and hundreds on my home pair - both work flawlessly.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid and works well

Pros: Solid, reliable connections achieved every time.
Cost effective price.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Didn't want to spend a fortune on a tool that I only needed to complete one wiring job.
Very happy with my purchase and I'm glad to know it'll be in my toolbox when I need to make use of it again.
