Belkin blows (it)
on March 23, 2013
I've never dissed a product openly like this before, but Belkin's High Speed Modem cable deserves it. I can't speak to how it actually works, seeing as how I never got that far. It comes so tightly coiled that nothing I could do short of tacking it to the carpet strip could keep it unfurled -- and even then it wanted to coil between the ugly tacks. What's worse, plugging the RJ11 connector into the wall jack might as well have been a forever connection. I had to unscrew the wall plate to get leverage for my Swiss Army knife to pry the connector out. By the time all this was done, I'd had it. Didn't bother to replug, just tossed the cable. Other buyers have mentioned both these negative points about the cable -- believe them! I have also read reviews on some of the Belkin power strips, the ones with the rotating plugs, that have melted after short use. I believe it. Belkin's design and quality-control teams should be fired en masse. I will never be a customer again for any of their products. Really p****d off.
