    PROS: The product works really well; Super fast
    CONS: None specified
    After looking at box stores and hardware stores I turned to online shopping to find the RG-59 connectors. It was difficult to find these connectors for coaxial cable. Finally I came across Show Me Cables and was able to buy what I needed at a very reasonable price and in small quantities. The connectors are of great quality and arrived on time. Thank you Show me Cables for being there and being fair. I will be letting others know where to look for there cable and connectors etc. Thank you, Dale
