The CAT6A STP RJ45 Shielded Modular Plug comes with a polycarbonate-wire aligner and load bar that allows for consistent twisted-pair seating during plug assembly on high-speed networking and computing applications for optimal performance. Gold plated connectors on these RJ45 connectors guarantee best possible transmission speeds for lightning fast internet connections. In order to crimp these plugs, a crimper with removable presser bar is required, otherwise part of the plug will be crushed.

Build quality is good. You can actually get cat6 wire in it, unlike most of the other stuff that says it's but isn't. Unfortunately, the design requires removal of the rear presser bar from your tool. That's not possible on many tools. Deducting one star since it won't work with standard crimping tools. Make sure you can remove the rear bar on your crimper before you order these.
Perhaps it's the nature of trying to cram a bigger wire into the aging RJ-45 design that makes this one of the most difficult terminations I have ever come across. Feeding wires into the staggered insert can be challenging. Getting the insert w/wires installed into the body of the plug within the very narrow length required is even more challenging.
I thought it would get easier with experience but I have terminated nearly 50 of these and it doesn't seem to be getting any easier.
Standard crimping tools look to engage a strain relief that is build into the body of the plug; however these do not have an internal strain relief (and the external strain relief is a joke). You will need to modify a tool by removing the strain relief lug or find a tool that is specifically designed to use with this plug.
Shielded made a world of difference when using long (over 150ft) twin twisted pair to carry HDMI signal. Yes its more work to put the ends on since you need to tuck the foil grounding inside and it is finicky, but it made a huge difference!
