Answer: 
if this cable is like the stuff I am using, varmints are likely to chew on it and break it if it isn't buried.

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Definately not designed for "easy teardown" or splitting Wire that was shipped was much different than smaller packages sold in store. Coating is less pliable, thinner than other brands of landscape lighting and likely to break if handled in moderately cold temperatures. Ad says designed for easy teardown but it is not. It was nearly impossible to separate the 2 wires without a razor blade. June 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wire was a bit sticky but ended up OK This spool of wire came on a different and smaller spool with respect to eariler orders of this part number of wire that I periodically ordered in the past. This time this wire company used clear plastic tape to secure the wire end, which made the first 20 feet or so, sticky. I had to take paint thinner on a rag to clean the wire end. Except for this minor inconvenience the wire worked as expected. September 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product. The product meets the strict guidelines required by the Gates That Open (GTO) company: polyvinyl chloride sheathed, two 16 gauge copper conductors with 26 strands of copper. We buried 250+ feet of it in a trench, and it is working perfectly. September 17, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by average price, good quality Good quality wire with a thick jacket and the quality of the copper strand also appears good. Jacket is just flexible enough and pliable to maneuver and pierce for the fixtures. 14 guage is plenty thick enough for a fully LED system with runs up to 150'. If you're using halogen though u might need thicker wire otherwise you'll get voltage drop. I have made runs of 150' with this wire with no drop and with about 60 watts from 5 led fixtures loaded on it a measures drop from 12 volt to 10. Which is totally acceptable. June 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid product Solid produce. Easy to use. Good value. Recommend. August 5, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Price Searched high and low for the best price and amazingly Home Depot was better than any online retailer I could find, plus they shipped it to my door for free. 500' of copper low volt wire is a heavy item, so be careful moving it around. June 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Speaker wire. My use is outdoor speaker cable (PA systems). This is a good weather and sun resistant cable. June 19, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not so happy When using the wire in temperatures below 40 degrees, the insulation was splitting and breaking when trying to separate the pair and strip the wire. December 10, 2014
