Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Electrician General Cable much better quality
Home Depot used to sell General Cable then went to Southwire, which I guess was probably do to pricing so they can gouge the consumer for a few extra pennies per box? As a master electrician who has run many thousands of feet of networking cable, I prefer General Cable over Southwire, Better jacket, easier to pull, and less kinks and other headaches.

Do not buy this wire. This is not CAT6. It has no centre insulator to prevent electronic chatter between conductor pairs.
I would give it no stars, but 1 star is as low as it goes.
My fault for not doing my homework and being more careful when selecting wire for my home network.
Probably makes OK phone wire, but that's about it.

I was pulling wire by myself and the wire rolled out of the boxes like hair out of butter. I did not have the need for another person to simply feed me the wire. Wire quality was excellent. Will use again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AtlantaJoe Low quality cable
This is not CAT6 but CAT5e cable. Standard CAT6 cable should have 23/4 pairs, pure copper conductors and a center spline to increase the separation between pairs and also to maintain the pair geometry. This cable, however, doesn't have the center spline. It would be fine if the cable could transfer 550MHz data but this cable doesn't support the rate. Therefore, this cable isn't real CAT6. Pros: The conductor is pure copper. So I give two stars. Don't buy ethernet cables on ebay. Most of them are CCA(copper clad aluminum) which violates industry standards such as UL 444, NEC/TIA-568.C.2.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Kato Quality control lacking
I bought this product around 3 months ago to wire up Ethernet in my house. It suddenly became faulty with no explanation that I could find so i went out to buy some more. When I unraveled it i found it to have dozens of kinks in the wire so bad i was sure there would be no way for it to work. I am not going to buy this brand again and I advise you not to.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WRudd The pull box makes installation easy!
My home network is humming along on CAT6 which is faster and more secure than wireless. I ran two cables per drop which can be used for data and phone. Coupled with a patch panel, I can make changes just by plugging in. Cutting over from my old phone wiring to the new wiring took less than 10 minutes and the computers worked trouble free. Since it is residential, I wired to the T568A standard.
I actually got higher Internet speed than I had before since I eliminated most of the phone company mess.
