Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Replaced the good with the bad I do a LOT of network wiring (about 5-10K feet/month) and had been using Home Depot's General Cable brand which was superb! Nice thick jacket that was consistently round and easy to strip. Home Depot replaced General Cable with Southwire a few months ago and I can't stand this cable! The outer jacket is very thin and almost seems like it has been heat shrunk around the UTP wires and thus it is very bumpy. This makes it very hard to strip without nicking the wires even with good UTP strippers! Worst of all is that each and every box will get tangled somewhere along the line! Never had that problem with General Cable. Wish HD would switch back to General Cable! May 2, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst Ever! This is the worst wire I've ever TRIED to use. The whites are not marked to their corresponding pair, they are all plain white. The conductors are thin and break easily. So easily that unspooling 70' of cable from the box generated opens in the length. I can't even imagine trying to pull this stuff. The jackets are thin and brittle easy to strip with your finger nails but not real useful. I've been doing this for years and could successfully make a 10' patch cable without opens or shorts in 7 attempts. I'm returning the remainder of the spool and will never buy this brand again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bad cable way to thin not a deal at all this cable is very bad the jacket on the cable is way to thin not good for long runs the other name brand you used to Sell was the best i used to buy a lot of it for my company now i go to a other store now to get all my cat5e cable your cable is Not a good deal any more Tell your Buying Dept at HomeDepot March 9, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible wire Terrible wire. Even with only short runs fished to first floor locations from basement, wire is unusable. Tried redoing multiple connections, simply cannot get a run of wire that is stable enough without network drop offs. If I could return it, I would. January 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Network Cat 5-e cable It installed as needed and gave me the improved network speed and stability that was needed. November 4, 2014
