Rated 3 out of 5 by from Avoid at all costs My brother bought a few of these and I had the job of installing them, as I work in I.T. and have probably installed hundreds of RJ45 outlets. Whilst the tool free description sounds like a good idea, the reality is much different. It's very awkward to get the wires in place so much so I ended up doing two wires at a time. Also booted patch cables don't latch in very well, you may need to slide the boot back to get them to click in place. Save yourself some grief and buy a punch down tool and a traditional outlet. The actual quality is very good (as you'd expect from MK) and the finished socket is very tidy. Just a bad design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Socket After testing a wide variety of 8P8C sockets, I ended up deciding on this one for a number of reasons. 1) The 45 degree angle is really great. Makes connections much neater and for devices that are connected permanantly it reduces the liklihood of disconnection via accidental bumps. 2) The general build quality is great. Personally I dislike the rest of the MK Essentials range, in particular the standard electrical sockets. They are poorly built and not as safe as the logic plus range, but this unit is an exception to that. Oddly, this is the only 8P8C connector that I've seen that doesn't use a Krone style IDC punchdown system for cable termination, instead MK have devised a simple system where a trapdoor pushes down on cables to make the connection - no tools required. My only concern with this method is that there may be increased interference between the pairs as each strand remains straight for considerable distance unlike Krone style connectors. However, I have been able to achieve gigabit speed with these connectors so no real issue and they're much quicker to install. 3) Looks smart. This is by far the smartest looking 8P8C socket out there. MK's logic plus equivalent is modular, expensive and just generally ugly. Others from manufacturers like Schneider just look cheap and also tend to not secure the cable as well as this socket. Overall after testing around 15 different 8P8C socket types I decided that this one was the best and have since used it in most installations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really pleased with socket Used this socket with Cat 6 cable. Really happy with the finish. I was able to line up each colour one at a time and clip them into place, no tools required for this part. You will need to strip back the outer cover quite a long ways to enable the cables flexibility within the socket. There is a wire guide on the terminal too although I ended up looking online as I wasn't sure which to use T568-A or T568-B. I looked at ethernet cables and decided on T568-B. Pleased to say it works really well. I will definitely buy/recommend MK in the future.
