"In a home cabling situation you don't necessarily want a business sized datacomms setup with comms cabinets. This patch panel enables you to cable on a more modest scale and locate your panel where suits you; in a cupboard on a garage wall or in the loft.
Requires a punch down tool to wire and solid core Cat5e (or equivalent) cable."
"Nice patch panel - the panel itself is pretty good for home networking;the front plate is robust, and it comes with cable ties to secure the incoming wires; let down by a flimsy plastic mount that feels as if it will break every time you mount or unmount it. Comes with adequate instructions for the novice, good for a fit and forget installation. I now have cat5 around the house for phones and ethernet. Overall, good for the price."
