Rated 4 out of 5 by Weeno from Simple description confusing to tech.No question the product is good quality. What is confusing to some is the description. As in all areas of society we try to make things over simple and fool proof (the stupider we treat people, the dumber they get). In the case of the RJ-45 couplings, to a technician straight through is literally just that, straight!! (it would make a x-over cable when connecting two cables together). And cross-over is just what it says,.. cross-over (and it would make a straight thru cable when connecting two cables). However, even the diagram in the specs shows the pin-out of the far ends of the two cables connected with the coupling, not the actual pin-out of the coupling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michael from Perfect fit for KVM extensionI wasn't sure what the difference was between the Cat5e couplers and this one, but at 25% the cost we decided to go with these. We're using them for KVM over ethernet extensions and they work perfectly! I'd recommend these for any situation where you have short cable runs or aren't pushing high bandwidth through the cables.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Handy Jeff from Just what you expectConnectors worked exactly as expected - no disappointing surprises. Not much to go wrong with these (when they are made correctly - which these are). Good quality item.
