I purchased this as a replacement to an old no name brand wall mounted 12 port keystone panel. My home network had grown to the point where 16 ports were needed, and well structured wiring was a must have. I started with TrendNET with their desktop 8 port gigabit switch, and have since grown my network using their stuff, and have been generally quite pleased.
Upon receiving the package from Amazon with the patch panel, I unpackaged it to investigate post shipping condition. The contents were well packaged, plastic wrapping over the outside of a sturdy fitted cardboard box, with the product inside the box protected with bubble wrap, dessicant bags, and reasonable care packing it all up.
Removing the panel from the box I found the following items in the box.
#1. 16 port patch panel assembly.
#2. 2 cable keeper clips.
#3. 4 skinny white zip ties.
#4. Instruction sheet.
The instruction sheet was clearly labelled, and written well enough to understand what was being asked of the installer.
The patch panel assembly looks very well made, fit and finish on the whole thing is clean, smooth and consistent. On par with the Leviton panels I have used in many paid networking jobs. There are no rough edges, finish runs, or thin spots, no orange peel to the finish, no casting irregularities to the plastics, none of that.
Flip it over to the 110 board side of things, and thought that went into the build becomes more apparent. Color coding for the A and B standards are clearly marked, and there is ample room for even a hamfisted installer to manipulate the wires into the slots and punch them down. The inclusion of the cable keeper clips was a big concern I have. Other MFGs low $$ patch panels do not include any means of managing the cables themselves, and the cables are thus hung off the back leaving the 110 board to support the weight of the cables, NOT a good thing. This panel included the keepers to allow the keeper to support the weight of the cables, keeping the stress off of the 110 board, and thus insuring better durability of the connection, and the board itself.
With the quailty and performance I have seen from the rest of my TrendNET gear, if this works as well as I expect it to, and meters out properly, this will become my go to panel for my budget conscious clients.
This is a great patch panel. Don't be put off by the Krone blocks, it works perfectly well with a 110 punch, and TrendNet verifies this.
The Krone blocks are actually rated for much higher freq than 110, though the angled connectors look odd.
The layout is also a bit different as two pair land on top and two pair land on the bottom, This is also superior as there is a lot less unbundled wire if done properly. If you do a lot of patch panels it will take you a few minutes to get used to this, but once you've adjusted you can zip right along.
This is the first one I've used, but won't be the last. The 24 port Cat 5, DID come with wire mngt clips and tie wraps.
Patch panels typically DO NOT come with brackets or mounts, Trendnet and or Amazon should change the listing and drop the wall mount part of the description.
Make sure you check the dimensions, if you are ordering something smaller than a 24 or 48 port. Some of the other sizes come in a 10" version, and a 10" rack is almost unknown in the USA.
Just a note, I had some trouble with a cheap punch down tool that I had not allowing the wires to seat correctly when punching down. I switched to an even cheaper tool from Home Depot and it worked fine. Subsequently I tried my good one that I carry with me on the job and it also worked fine, so I'm going to assume that the cheap tool was simply out-of-spec and caused the issue, not the panel.
The stickers on the back that show you which wire goes where are not *quite* aligned with the wire slots on some of the jacks. It's not hard to figure it out, but don't blindly follow the stickers. It helps a lot to start at one end and do each jack in order (don't try to skip a jack) - that way it's easy to see if you've left a wire slot empty. The stickers are marked for both 568A and 568B wiring schemes. You'll need a 110 punch down tool.
As another reviewer noted, the connections for one jack are on both sides of the board - two pair on the top, two pair on the bottom. No problem for me, but I have seen other panels where all four pair are on one side.
Mine came with four plastic split hoops (cable guides) that can be installed in any of eight places on the back of the panel. They attach pretty securely, once you make sure they are seated all the way. It also came with some 4" white nylon zip ties; you could (carefully) put these through the slots where the split hoops attach if you wanted.
I can't comment on its gigabit-ness as I am only using it on a 10/100 network, but it does 100 megabits just fine.
Other than that it's a solid device. It won't fit in a rack so I'm not sure what the holes are supposed to be for, but it does the job.
