  • Great cable

    posted by FragFrog on 12/18/2010

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    - The cable is fairly sturdy, much more so than cheap round cables you would find at your local computer store.
    - Flat means it is really easy to put in a cable tray or alike.
    - Connectors seem sturdy and are protected by a clip.

    Cons:

    - Not an inconspicuous color. On those areas where no cable tray is available a blue cable really draws attention.

    OtherThoughts:

    I have only been able to test this with 100Mbit network, no gigabit yet. On my tests the cable did not seem to limit throughput as I could easily pull 12MiB/s over it.
    There are many factors limiting overall network throughput, but for 100Mbit networks, this cable is not one of them. Perhaps someone with a better cable tester can confirm performance over gigabit though.

    Bottomline:

    If you need a couple of (relatively) long network cables, look no further. These work like a charm, are fairly cheap and appear to be well build.
