@Eleanor Saitta Borrow? The company I was free-lancing for owned one of the Flukes; fully testing each and every cable was a standard part of every installation, along with including 10% spares.From my perspective, every high-bandwidth connector you don't have to terminate yourself is one you can't screw up. But yes, if you're pulling long enough runs, or enough of them, connectors are going to be a pain. It may be worth borrowing one of the Fluke network bandwidth testers for a day once everything is done to make sure you're getting the full expected performance of the cables. The day you suddenly find yourself needing to run 4k video over an HDbaseT transceiver you'll be very happy you did.
