Poor quality patch leads - only get a connection when pushed hard?
Anyone else had this? I bought a load of 0.5m patch leads from Comms Express last year and they really arn't good. They seem to exhibit a problem I've seen before - they dont get a connection unless you make an extra push into the patch panel, meaning that moving a cable can disconnect loads of others...really annoying. I'm hoping someone knows what I mean here!
I initially thought it could be the patch panel but I've re-terminated the room in question to a much better one and the problem persists. When I replace them with other cables, the problem dissapears.
Is this an issue with Comms Express cables or budget cables in general? They were cheap, about 46p each, but over a quid seems a lot for a cable, especially when you need stacks of them
