    PROS: None specified
    CONS: Did not hit 100 percent connectivity
    Once you arrange the 8 twisted pair wires and trim them to equal length you have to insert them in the correct order into their matching plug channels. This was very difficult to accomplish since you are working with a 1/2 inch of wire at best. When you close the connector to pierce the 8 wires they don't always work. It took several resets to get one that finally did work. Then you get to begin the process all over again for the other end. It took significant time to get this right.

What is an RJ45 connector used for?

An RJ45, also named 8P8C connector is most commonly used in network and telecommunication applications. It can also be used for other data type communications, such as serial.

What is the difference between a solid and stranded connector?

A solid RJ45 connector has 3 teeth that pinch the solid wire to ensure good contact. A stranded RJ45 connector contains 2 teeth that bite the strands to hold the wire in place. Stranded is typically used when you are making your own patch cables.
