Pros: I just installed this keyboard and I'm using it for the first time. Very high quality keyboard and very sturdy/durable. Keys feel wonderful and I like the loud audible click of a quality mechanical keyboard. Can't believe it's illuminated too for just $80.
Cons: I really love this keyboard except the PS/2 instead of USB plug. That's a major fail in my opinion. Any board of this quality should by default have PS/2 for gamers and fast typers. I might just need to get used to this keyboard a bit but the blue switches don't feel responsive enough. Repeated keystrokes seem laggy and I can't tell if that's the blue switches or the USB connection. I'm usually pretty generous with good quality hardware but they lose 2 eggs for USB. What a shame because this keyboard otherwise deserves 5 full eggs.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Platinum Tools EZ-RJ45 Cat6+ Strain Relief, Clear (50 Pack) (100036)
Pros: Great strain reliefs if used with the proper EZ connectors. Seems to do the trick well enough.
Other Thoughts: At first I didn't even consider buying strain reliefs along with the cable and connectors for my new home cabling project. I'm glad I did. While they're totally not necessary and professionals don't think twice about wasting money on them, for home use they look very nice and they're not too expensive.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Platinum Tools EZ-RJ45 Cat6+ Connector (50 Pack) (100010C)
Pros: Perfect connectors they're so EZ!!! No point in buying these if you don't use the official EZ Crimper/Cutter Tool.
Cut and strip your wires using the the official EZ Crimper/Cutter. Slip the wires thru one by one in the correct pinout and crimp/cut at the same time. Literally takes 3 minutes to terminate a cable and test it.
Cons: No cons at all.
Other Thoughts: It's a tight fit but with some practice you can easily seat the cable all the way to the front of the connector. Use your fingers to squeeze the Cat6 cable so its thin enough to press inside the connector, then firmly insert while taking care to keep wires straight. Terminating cables has never been this fast or EZ. Big fan now.READ FULL REVIEW
