Good price for a long cable – RJ45 Category 5 Network Patch Cable (5M 4-Pair 24AWG) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Works as it should.
Good price for a long cable.
Pretty durable - never had a bad connection.
Cons:
It seems that either the inner wires have stretched or the outer coating has shrunk with use. While this hasn't affected the function, the cable is starting to look pretty ghetto. Even after electrical taping the difference between the end of the cover to the end of the cable, the end keeps pulling out further and further. The cable is used for non-wireless devices and is often wound up/unwound.
Other:
Bottomline:
Works as it should, likely better for "static applications" where you plug something in and leave it.
