Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by greg 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 Markers...plus it turns grey...it starts out brown...then turns gray!
However I run video and low power over it and it does GREAT..so if you need to walk the distance and don't care the color it will work for you.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Garry 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by dave Great value
I have been working in Information Technology for 20 years and have run as well as tipped more than my fair share of cat 5 cable.
The price is great, delivered fast, ran smooth out of the box and was easy to tip. Since it is solid strand be careful of kinking. No issues with indoor or outdoor use as I ran it for external IP Power over Ethernet security cameras

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Donal 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.
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 5.0 out of 5.0 by bwaller 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.
