Rated 3 out of 5 by from I bought this lower priced tool as opposed to a more expensive ones, as I only needed to make up a few network patch cables, using N20CH RJ45 fittings recommended by Maplin as suitable for use with their cheapest Cat-5 solid core cable. The RJ45 fittings are simple to use when you download the associated info leaflet from the site. The tool is well made, fairly robust and the action is good and it can crimp other size connectors as well as cut and strip wire, but in my experience it fails to make reliable connections using these parts. I have also tried making short cables from longer commercial items, with the same poor result. I have a simple 8-LED net cable continuity tester and I have yet to make a good cable across all 8-pins. To be fair it may work better with stranded cable and/or different end connectors.
