Rated 2 out of 5Â by 4faircomment Extended suppliers not in sync
Philex seem to have a problem between their suppliers and user guide printer/editor. The cable is clearly 4-core but, the colours don't match with the user guide. In print it says we have; one each of, yellow, green, black and red - however the cable is; blue(solid), orange(solid), white/orange and white/blue. How is the installer supposed to know how the 2-3-5 slots are colour configured on the fitted male-end of connector lead? Now, go figure how they managed to loose that in translation!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Myth Guess the colour code
An easy extension kit. A bit of guesswork is required as the colour of the cores in the cable did not match the instructions!

Looking back over the previous reviews, it appears there are two types of cable, with differently-coloured wires, and a set of instructions for each. However, the instructions don't always match the cables, as was the case with the set I bought. In addition, the terminal numbers are sometimes a mirror-image! Thank goodness for mathprof, whose user comments helped me sort it out.
This is very far from good enough, I certainly would not recommend you buy this, unless you enjoy a gamble!

Kit includes everything including cable clips to get the job done. Colours of wires were different to those in the instructions but after a bit of google searching its a common issue with the brand. Fortunately the colours of the wires were standard BT configuration and followed normal pin configuration so no dramas. Not the highest quality of plastic but given that usually both the box and cable are hidden, then the quality is fine. Great value for money.
