  • Good but not great

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    It actually do work at 1 gigabit, as some question how it would, since is a flat cable instead of a normal bulky twisted pair one.
    Once i plugged it it, it worked fine a 1 gbps, BUT, as soon as i twisted it to make it smaller, it went back to 100 mbps. But that is ok for me, since it is very easy to manipulate and hide.

    Cons:

    Since it DOES NOT follow CAT 5e standards, it WON'T work in some systems and conditions.

    OtherThoughts:

    As it is possible to see in the pictures, it is twisted pair on the inside, but, i'll not make a teardown, so, no way to know how it actually is.

    Bottomline:

    It's a good pice of wire. I do recommend if you'll plug your pc or mac on the wall. It is very flexible, so, It'll fit great for organized offices.
