Rated 2.5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not Color Coded to Cat5 Standard Disappointed in this product. This is an RJ-45 (data) plate but it is not color coded properly. An Ethernet/Cat5e connection is comprised of four pairs of wires and they are attached in exact sequence in accordance with the T-568B standards: orange/white, orange, green/white, blue, blue/white, green, brown/white, brown. This is an RJ-45 receptacle but the color coding is for a telephone connection - red, green, yellow, black... August 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to do. Use common sense. Otherwise - move along... Don't know why others are confused. The pin out/color coding is available right on the product page at Homedepot.com. Shows the three possible codes to follow. Again - it's easy to do - simply put in a low-volt box (if regular box), run the wires, match the colors to the charts, test and close it up. I always spray the back side of connectors with silcon spray to help prevent oxidization - other non-conductive coatings, such as battery terminal spray, or even silicon grease (cheap if you get the tube meant for brakes at your local auto store - use it for everything!) are also excellent to help assure you extend the life of your project.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Thanks customer service Bought 6 of these to do a side job only to find out the color code is wrong. Contacted Home Depot to find correct pin outs. Pin 1 blue -w/o. Pin 2 orange-o. Pin 3 black-w/g. Pin 4 red-blue. Pin 5 green-w/blue. Pin 6 y-green. Pin 7 brown-w/brn. Pin 8 w-brown. Thanks for the heads up! January 5, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Horrible connection The connection in these wall plates is horrible and led to physical connection issues (despite passing basic cable validation testing). Save yourself the headache and purchase a modular keystone jack and punch down tool. July 15, 2013
