Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by product is great for the money very nice solid cable and the price is awesome recommended 100% December 5, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 Horrible insulation, bound to fail This wire is a good price, but you get what you pay for. The insulation is much too thin, and prone to splitting. I'm frankly very surprised it's rated for direct burial. I imagine Home Depot carries this wire because the thinner insulation would work better with a Malibu system that uses the piercing clip style connectors. I've been doing landscape lighting installation professionally for more than 10 years, I can tell you, those clips are a terrible way to make an outdoor electrical connection. To make a proper direct burial splice however, you must separate the two conductors. We trying to do this with this wire, the insulation tears every time. This wastes wire, expensive direct burial connectors, and most importantly time. This wire MAY outlast the low-end, poorly built Malibu fixtures, but not by much. Don't waste your time. March 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for Malibu lights The unit price (cost per foot) is low and the wire is the perfect size for the clips used by Malibu landscape lights. While using 12 gauge wire is great for longer wire runs I’ve run into issues before with different wire where the wire sheathing is too thick for the clips to make contact so I end up having to use a knife to shave off some of the insulation. No shaving necessary with this wire. July 3, 2012
