Customer Reviews

500 ft. Tan 24/4 CAT5e Indoor/Outdoor Wire is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad quality As a network technitian I can tell that this cable is soft and very bad quality

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OUTDOOR RATED cat 5e So for a long time HD carried a different brand and I liked it a lot better. This has no FEET it turns starts out brown...then turns gray! However I run video and low power over it and it does if you need to walk the distance and don't care the color it will work for you.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not in a pull box, came on giant spools I didn't get to test the actual cable - unlike the item pictured, HD ran off 500' from an 18,000 (!!) foot spool and loaded it on giant wooden spools to ship to me. (You read that right - on the side of the cable, I got feet 12,230 - 12,730 of 18,000) Since it isn't in a pull box it isn't useful to me. The spools were whoppers, too. 13" tall and just shy of 20" wide. Not only impossible to pull from, but inconvenient to store after you are finished!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great! The cable worked great!! Would definitely recommend it for dsl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
