Thx

Cheap HDMI and Optical cables too.

(See their storefromt)

Why does it need to be gold plated ? oO

Ordered. Thanks.

Gold oxidises less and so has better electrical connectivity for cleaner data transfer - its not essential though by any means

bargain!

If you get the same product I got about a month back from them its acualy a good 'off white' colour cable, as in the picture so ideal for running along skirting boards/ door frames etc... without the premium pricetag of a white cable. (the cheaper ones tend to be dark grey).

Really is staggeringly cheap. IMHO gold connectors on a network cable is snake oil.

good price.

Makes excellent speaker cable.

I couldn't make them for this price even with cheap cable.

I bought one of these a couple of months ago - it is NOT capable of gigabit speeds, the most I could ever get out of it was around 10MB/sec, whereas I can transfer large media files to/from my server at >80MB/sec using a genuine Cat5e cable.

It might not be an issue if you're bottlenecked elsewhere on your network or you just don't need the speed, but otherwise you'd be better off spending a few quid more IMHO.

really? no gigabit support? almost bought 5 of them!!!

IMO you got a rotter, mines doing 10/100, i don't have any gigabit devices.

If you want consistant gigabit speeds get Cat6 cable

ordered 5m

my gigabit does better with cat5e than cat6e, bought cat6e with me getting a qnap server but found the old cable better

Decent quality Cat5e cable which actually meets the specs (which this tat clearly doesn't) is more than adequate for a GbE network at segment lengths of up to 100m.

Cat6 has less crosstalk and is also suitable for 10GBASE-T, but it's a fair bit more expensive as well as being thicker, stiffer, and harder to work with.

Product description states "10/100BaseT Cable ". You could have saved yourself (and us) some time and read the description before you bought it?

I don't recall seeing that at the time - it may be a recent addition or I may well have overlooked it, but in any case the cable shouldn't be marketed as "Cat5e", which will not unreasonably lead many people to believe it supports GbE.

It seems at least one person in this thread was about to make a purchase on this (mistaken) assumption, so hopefully my input hasn't been a waste of time for everybody.
