Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EH5280 Commercial Electric RJ45 Plug Crimper
At about $20 this CE plug crimper is not top of the line, but it was good enough for the plugs and Cat5e runs I needed to do in my house. I made about 10 patch cables with this crimper (RJ45 on both ends) and it worked great. The grip is just right and it doesn't require a ton of pressure to crimp; and it has two convenient blades for different cutting needs plus a spot for stripping the sheathing off the end of your cable. I find the stripper blade has dulled out to a degree already, so be prepared to replace the razors if you use this tool a lot. This crimper is solid and will last quite a bit longer than just wiring one house, and was a great deal at $20.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 93geotracker A good tool.
If you run cat5e cable, this tool is great help, it does it all. Cut, strip, even ends, and crimp! I think it is a little pricy, but most things are these days.

We had a need to make some additional cables for some equipment. Purchased the Crimper and the plugs and made our own. Easy to use. NOTE: make sure the wires are in the right place before you crimp.....then test after assemble before you use it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RS Great purchase Great value
We decided to put all the computers on the network via ethernet cables and free up the wireless for other things. This tool was very helpful and performed well allowing us to make custom sized cables and get the job done easily.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dud Not quite what I expected
Good for cutting, And pressing on the terminals, cutting even with my nail clippers but stripping had a hard time because it would weaken the cable

I use this crimper on an occasional basis but it is good enough for daily production use. The stripping blades needed a little tweaking upon initial use but the adjustment was simple and then the tool worked fine.
