Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jonathon Awesome wires, Awesome Price
This wire is awesome. It's core is not the thick plastic X I am used to, it is a single rubbery feeling ribbon with a | shape going down the center of the wire. This made it a little more flexible (made pulling it a breeze) and a lot easier to terminate. Make sure you never kink or force this wire while pulling it, pull gently. 25lbs of pulling force maximum. (Make sure to purchase Caddy J-Hooks to support it. It is so sloppy to just leave it lying on top of a drop ceiling.) After my first 150' run, I put my network certifier on it and it passed with flying colors. It had a skew of just 7ns at that distance!
This wire is made in the USA and is the most affordable USA plenum coated CAT6 I could find (beat the supply house pricing).
BEWARE OTHER VENDORS SELLING CHEAPER PLENUM CAT6 WIRE.
I recently was burned on wire I purchased from another huge online retailer. It stated it was TIA/EIA 568 Spec, and it was, until you passed ~80ft then it went downhill from there. 50+ns skew on a 100' run? HA! (tia spec states a max of 50ns skew on a 300' run with anything over 25ns being marginal) These con artists get away with selling terrible wire because VERY few people actually have the tools to test it.
BUY THIS WIRE, You will not find better wire at a better price ANYWHERE! I hope The Home Depot never stops selling it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by sun103 Great value, was exactly what I was looking for!
This product is just like the more expensive wire. It was installed and there was no issues, works perfectly!
