Are they Belkin? 0.5m on ebuyer is 70p + depending on colour, also like you say theres £2.99 min delivery on top which makes it hugely more expensive.
Dont forget the 3% TCB too.

cables at the price they should be, have some heat!

Maybe a silly question but whats the difference between a patch cable and an ethernet cable? or are they the same thing?

Someone please correct me if wrong, but yes, it is an ethernet cable (the name for most network cables)- and a patch cable is for linking your pc/xbox/ps3 to a wired network/router.
The other sort is a crossover cable which is for linking 2 pc's/devices together, but without a network. The difference being how they are wired into the plugs at the ends.

ordered 5 lol...always breaking the plastic bit on the end, hence it keeps coming out..

if you keep breaking the bits off the end, get the snagless type. Makes all the difference!

Thanks for the info peeps!

good idea...trouble is i have so many wires and cables behind my pc desk, i dont know which cable is going where..lol, might try the snagless type, once i break a few more of these..

bought 6 of the 0.5m lengths

3m - £1.49 cheers op

Interesting that they view an AMD Phenom II x4 cpu as a laptop accessory.

nice... although the fact it wouldnt let me add a bunch of stuff to basket and pay via paypal was a pain!! i didnt want much so ordered seperately

Kazaam

Do they delivery?



Yes they delivery

Been looking to buy some short cat5e cables for a while. Was going to wait till I actually had enough stuff over £50 so I could get free p+p from ebuyer. This is much better and they do Google Checkout too.

Thanks OP.

Modern (last 5 years at least) networking gear has no need for crossover cables.

Why is this being voted hot?

The lengths aren't very useful.

You get a couple of cables when you buy a router.

Thanks :-) 5x 3M cables bought. Heat added!

A "patch" cable is the same as a normal ethernet Cat5e cable. All these cables here are straight cables (as in they are not crossover). You won't find crossover cables anywhere near this price - however I tend to avoid them and instead use little crossover dongles when needed.

It is hot because you can barely make them yourself for this price.

Myself - I *do* make my own cables and at 15p/metre + 8p/rj45 AMP plug + hassle factor - this is very tempting... Most people here aren't buying 300m rolls and 100 plug boxes to get to that level of pricing tho - therefore 50p for a 1m patch cable is hot.

Ordered, better than the 99p store.

Ordered a few - cheers

Cold - being a geek i make my own cables, get yourself a crimp and a reel of cable and spend your weekend making your own. You'll feel like you've achieved something

Just messing, heat added. A good price for cables, though 0.5 metre ones are pretty useless for most things

Bought eight 0.5m lenghts to tidy up the network a bit. I've found belkin cables to be of good construction.

Like your input then.....not very useful.

How are these lengths useless??? I have a gigabit network in my home so these are very handy for connecting pc/ps3/xbox/revo etc to the network outlets... I certainly dont have them further than 3m away from them.

amazing website! just used for the first time and its absolutely faultless! hope the delivery lives up to it!

Cheers OP, very impressed.

great find just what i wanted

Shame there's no cheap 5 meter cables.
