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.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother case of "Don't overthink it"

Pros: Crimps 6P RJ11/RJ12 and 8P RJ45 just fine. That's what you bought it for, right? :-)
Cuts and strips nicely.
Good value, why overpay?

Cons: None really at all...

Other Thoughts: This is a classic case of "Don't over-think it". I know a lot of people will say something like "This is decent, but Fluke makes a better one"... but really think about that statement... This tool costs 1/3 of the Fluke tool, and literally does the same exact thing, just as well. Think about the functional aspects of tools like this, and you'll realize that the only difference between brands is the name and color of the tool.

This tool works perfectly fine for the job, and at the price, it's a no-brainer.

5 out of 5 eggsHandy and easy to use

Pros: Very easy to use and lots of functionality. Has a wire sheath scoring blade to remove the outer part of network cabling. Very handy. Has wire cutter, also handy. No messed up crimps yet. Comfortable to use.

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: definitely watch a video on youtube if you've never crimped wires before but this item is very easy to use.

2 out of 5 eggsCutting Blades

Pros: Crimps without issue

Cons: Both cutting blades broke (one on the right side and one on the left... I noticed that you can remove the left side and replace but the cutter on the left is fixed. Fortunately I have a good wire cutting tool available.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful Little Crimper

Pros: Excellent Crimper. I like the wire stripper and ratcheting mechanism. Ensures a full and complete crimp every time. Highly Recommended

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: * Ratcheting
* Solid construction
* Great design
* Price

Cons: * None

Other Thoughts: I make LOTS of cable, and for the price, this is one EXCELLENT little crimper! I have an older one I've been using for the last couple years with no more features than this one, only it doesn't ratchet. You really have to hoss down on it to get a good crimp. It cost at least $10 more than this one.
