Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Spend the extra money... on better cable I ran 50ft and the attenuation was so bad that the link was unusable. I then cut the 50ft into 10ft lengths. At 10ft the cable is acceptable. I would not recommend runs much longer. The pairs are not sufficiently twisted. Perhaps one of the worst cables I could have possibly selected for the task. I should have known this would not do the trick when I untwisted the pairs. I recall thinking at the time "That was easy - perhaps too easy." In a hurry and purchased anyway. Sure enough. The jacket appears to be of good enough quality for outdoor use as it is the same as many other cables I have used outdoors. Due to attenuation I had to buy another type. December 20, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Costly, but poor quality This stuff kinks like you wouldnt believe. Very difficult to run long lengths of it and not have it kink. Shell is very thin. In my opinion, it should be half the price it sells at for as cheap as it is. May 11, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Surprised to see Cat-5e at Home Depot I was surprised to see Cat-5e wiring at Home Depot. I normally have to go to a specialty data communication wire supply shop for this and buy a minimum of 1000 feet. The price per foot was a little higher, but I only needed about 250 feet so it ended up cheaper. The cable connects two buildings and has endured temperatures from 95 to 60 degrees, sunny days, wet weather and a few thunderstorms. September 24, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product Southwire outdoor grade wire is the best product for the price that I have found. March 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Home Phone Wiring Made Reasonable I am a retired telephone technician. This wire is excellent quality at a very reasonable price. It is as good a quality as what we used to install in homes. Great for DSL. July 10, 2012
