Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on August 11, 2018
First of all these are cables so not much that can go wrong. The cables themselves look good and feel well built.

With Amazon being a leader of data centers, you would thing they would design the perfect network cable, unfortunately there is an annoying design flaw.

The jacks are surrounded by a thick rubber which makes it hard to squeeze them into tight spaces. You can force them, but they start to lean and I was concerned that this would damage the ports on my router.

The fix is pretty simple, luckily the material is rubber and not hard plastic. I took a sharp knife and was able to whittle away the excess rubber.

Now my custom modified cables fit as they should.

Check out my images, the 4 cables on the switch are modified, the one cable at the end is untouched because I had enough room there that it didn't matter.

but you can see the difference.

I hope that Amazon addresses this issue as it's a great product otherwise.
