Hi, I have looked at the deal, and there seems to be 3 marketplace sellers which have this item for sale at the same price. I have added the relevant marketplace seller, that is allowed on HUKD, which is Internet Cartridges, Thanks MissGem8)

missgem, why have you adopted this habit of posting in bold? Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with someone posting in bold but there's one rule for mods here and another for everyone else. Mods post in bold every time they post but if anyone else posts in bold every time they post they're 'issued with an infraction'! It's either ok to post in bold or it isn't.

Whilst I'm on the subject of 'issuing an infraction', to ALL mods here, you cannot 'issue' someone with an 'infraction'. That's like saying "I issue you with an 'infringement' or a 'violation'!" An infraction is an act carried out by an 'infractor'. You issue that person with a warning... posted in bold of course! http://www.easyfreesmileys.com/smileys/free-rolleye-smileys-323.gif

What, you've not heard of the phrase "Do as I say, not as I do" ?

The very thought of issuing a warning for daring to post in bold is laughable, but sadly, not surprising on this site. If it bothered them that much, why have te facility to post in bold at all ? Then again, recoding websites isn't actually a strong suit of this lot ... better stick to issuing warnings for such offences as "posting in bold" and "daring to vote a moderators deal cold"

And cue the disappearing post trick :D

So the 98% rule has been changed, or is this another example of moving goalposts??

This company only has 95% reputation, which to me is not a company I would buy from, they don't make the stuff, just put it in the post, so how hard can that be?

that is one very long ethernet cable! X)

Irrespective of the seller this is only Cat5, when really nobody should be buying Cat5 anymore as you will no doubt have to throw it away in a few years, as it becomes the bottleneck on your home network.

Really get Cat6, especially for indoor runs of this length as it will be used usually to connect between major network points e.g. office and lounge, both of which will end up usually needing to send a lot of data between each other.

Forgot to add, and for outdoor work where Cat5 can be useful (e.g. CCTV camera's) you need weatherproofed cable, which this isn't. Really this is a nigh on pointless cable.

@ukle: This is Cat5e cable. This means it's rated for 1000BASE-T, which is fine when you remember that in the real world most people aren't going to be switched at more that 100Mb/s in their home anyway. I can't see them needing 10GBASE-T in "the next couple of years", prompting a move to cat6, but at this price it's probably worth it?
Those of us who's network topology requires fast switch-to-switch transport in our homes are already smart enough not to use cat5 for it :-)
#12
@ukle / fsck. I purchased a 20m run of cat5e not long ago. It intermittently goes from 1000 to 100mbps and is therefore no good for a gigabit network. I can only imagine a 30m run would be worse. As a result anyone wanting GB, or switching to GB soon, I would say this cable is no use. Its worth paying double for cat6.

I just purchased a cat6 STP 15m run to replace the original 20m cat5e. When you consider the hassle it is actually doing the wiring, I think money is no object to I went for overkill.
#13
I have gigabit LAN running quite happily over several 20m Cat5e cables. Cat5e officially supports Gigabit LAN but not higher. Cat 6 will support 10 gigabit up to a certain distance. Most domestic set ups are still 100Mb but even if you account for gigabit - Cat5e will suit most people for the foreseaable future

if you teckies are so concearned about speeds, move your desktop next to the router or go sit on the exchange!
its all very well saying you need cat 6, but what exactly do you think your isp is using?
i bet you beleive there using fibre optics.
you also seem to be missing the point, this is a deals site not a teckie forum.
30 metres of pre terminated ethernet cable? good price.
if you want cat 6, then go get it.
#15
I'm a network engineer. 99.9% of people don't need CAT6 and if they did they wouldn't buy it via hotukdeals.

CAT 5E is fine for gigabit up to 90 meters.
#16
how do you put the ends on these?
#17
the one in the deal is pre terminated,

Interesting. When I replaced the lan cards on my desktops with gigabit instead of the 100/10 ones, the cat5e only connected at 100. Once I replaced it with cat6 they only then gigabit connections. One PC is less than 1m away from the gigabit router and the other around 15m. There is a seller on ebay (unsure if I am permitted to mention the name here) who sold me 20m of flat cat6 cable for £5.99 delivered.

What part of my post is it that you feel is in some way haughty, arrogant, inflexible, self-righteous etc? Surely if there is one rule for how the mods post here and another rule for others, it is the mods who are 'on their high horse'?

I'm about to get Virgin Broadband and want to use an ethernet cable to connect my wii for best online connections, they are in the same room so don't need this length but would this type of cable be good? Not bothered about saving a few quid I want whatever will give me the best connection.

STP? Living the dream, I like your style :)

Personally I'd never spec anything but cat6 unless there were ridiculous cost differences (>50%) - the real cost is the time and effort not the cable.

I might suggest UTP is probably fine in most home environments though!

If you want to connect it via an ethernet cable you'll need a Wii Lan Adapter (they don't include one when you buy your wii), as the wii doesn't have a ethernet socket.

Hope that helps.

Yup that helps a lot, I'd assumed without looking that it had an ethernet socket. Thanks.

Ebay is cheaper.
