Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wet Location Rated/Great Product You can use this MC cable for outdoors you must purchase MC connectors that are rated for wet locations according to NEC code of Florida. April 20, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great stuff to work with... I use this in my house rather than Romex, overkill but I like working with it and that it is less subject to damage in exposed areas like the attic, crawl space and my classic bare stud garage. Price is relatively good compared to buying 12 awg wire spools and pulling. Buy the special cutting tool for the cladding if you don't have one, well worth it. December 29, 2012
