Awesome CAT5e Cable
on October 27, 2010
What can I say, it's network cable! The price is what attracted me to this brand, and I wasn't expecting much given how cheap it was. But WOW! This is quality, the cable is the full 24AWG solid core made of pure copper, and the color-coding is probably the best I've seen (bright distinct color with good striping on the white/colored wires). The jacket is pure white, and has a good feel to it.
Anyone who has made network cables knows how much of a pain it is to fit the wire into the ends when it doesn't "behave" as it should. This wire has a very tactile feel to it, and when you bend and straighten the wires, they stay where you put them! This makes putting on ends much easier, and also fitting the wire into wall-jack punchdown conectors. I at no point over-stripped the wire (due to the rugged jacket), and had no breaks of the individual strands (which surprised me, I made over 50 perfect connections with this wire so far).
If you need a 1000ft spool of network wire, this is a great deal and is quality cable! Thanks VideoSecu!
edit: I'm noticing that this particular listing has been edited to a 500ft spool (it used to be 1000ft). The price has gone down, but not as much as I'd like to see for loosing half the quantity. Still, not a bad deal for quality solid copper cat5e.
