3.0 out of 5 stars Cable OK, but no strain relief, 9 Dec 2011

This review is from: Belkin Cat5e Assembled UTP Patch Cable (Grey) 0.5m (Accessory)
This is one of the less-well-made cables, specifically because there is no strain relief moulding between the plugs and cable; only the IDC clamp on the signal wires holds it in place. See the Az illustration.

It will be fine for a "Fit and Forget" link between fixed sockets, but don't expect it to survive for long if it needs to be disturbed as much as one might expect for a "Patch Cable", or if on a piece of equipment that is moved around.

To save time in the long run I always test leads for connectivity before installing them, and this basic tester seems to be a reliable indicator of cable condition.
