I like the cables thus far
on March 24, 2017
I like the cables thus far, having installed everything over the past 2 days. They look good so far on the big high res screens, and, no failures. The thing that I absolutely HATE about these cables is that it takes forever to unwind them.
You see, they come to you wrapped up nicely, but, tangled together. So somebody joined both ends together and then twisted 150 ft of cable together, then wound it up into a circle and twist-tied it.
If you're okay with paying this much for decent cable, and spending an hour untangling & unwrapping each cable, then buy this one.
Oh, and you'll need to purchase female-to-female power adapters for Swann systems (otherwise you'll end up with 2 male power adapters facing each other at the box). If you are adding these on to existing white swann cable thats already plugged into your box, you'll also need to purchase female-to-female BNC adapters. And, if you wish to chain these cables together on each other (so 150ft + 150ft, you will still need a female-to-female BNC adapter, as BOTH ENDS OF THIS CABLE ARE MALE BNC.
A very frustrating cable to add to a swann system, however, worth it ONLY in terms of function. You will pay for these cables in the time it takes you to unwrap and unwind the intentionally tangled 150 feet of mess that you receive for each cable, right out of the box, as well as the multiple adapters you will need to buy. The adapters that come in the box are female-to-male BNC, which are actually useless since these cables are all MALE-to-MALE BNC.
