    It worked great out of the box. I dropped it once, not even that hard (2-3 ft) and now it won’t lock. It does not have any protectors on the tabs on the connectors so they can and have gotten bent.

    It is a very nice length. The cable itself is very flat but sturdy. You would have to be trying hard to tear the cord. The connectors and body of the cord are very strong too and won’t be cracked or crushed.

    This cable reel suffers from binding and jamming if you do not carefully extend both ends at the same time. On retraction it will jam the majority of time it is difficult to execute a simultaneous retraction of both end, thus one side of the reel will bind (we fisherman call that a backlash).

    I connected this cable to 5 different devices, 3 computers (2 Dell, 1 Mac) and 2 printers (Brother and Canon). Four of the devices rejected the connection despite my reconnecting several times. This has been referred to in other submissions.

    In summary, this is a good idea poorly executed, I definitely would not travel with this thing. Save your money, look elsewhere.

    Unfortunately, one of the cables I purchased has already broken. That is why I bought two I guess. It is a good product in theory – but the plastic on the connectors is too thin – I anticipate the second one to fail. I recommend going with a higher quality short cable for travel.

    Perfect for my job as a tech. I always have it handy, and it fits in my purse, and cable pouch. Its retractable keeps me from damaging it, and it takes the abuse. Good product.

    Very convenient to keep in your travel kit for those just-in-case events where only wired ethernet is available or hotel staff can’t figure out why the wireless doesn’t work. The vendor should get a clue that a road warrior oriented item like this has to be of more durable build. I’ve gone through several — either the ratchet breaks, or one of the connectors goes wonky, or something else. Five stars for concept and convenience and one star for durability averages out to three stars.
