- The cable is very flexible and thin, this comes handy often when you need a workaround on some issue.
- Fairly good endpoint connectors.
Well, first of all the cable is not twisted, it is flat, thus by its design it's impossible to be CAT6 certified or anything near that.
Having that said, the capacitance generated by its design makes it crap to achieve any speed, even 100mbps grade.
The common CAT5e ethernet cable is way faster than this one, and I'm talking about the 100mbps certified.
The only reason for one to buy this cable is its flexibility, it is really easy to handle, expect speeds below 2mbytes/s (16mbps) most of the time.
Tried that between a gigabit and a 100mbps NIC, after that test (+/- 13mbps) trying gigabit vs. gigabit cards just became waste of time... maybe I post that later on the forum.
