Cat5e 24AWG UTP Ethernet Network Patch Cable, 6-inch Gray

Save the time and hassle of building Ethernet cables by using fixed-length UTP Cat5e Ethernet Network Cables from Monoprice!


  • Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) Category 5e Ethernet cable
  • 24AWG stranded, pure bare copper conductors
  • 350MHz bandwidth
  • Snagless cable boot protects the plug retaining clip
  • 50µm gold plated contacts
  • 6-inch length (tip to tip)

Monoprice Ethernet cables are made of 100% pure bare copper wire, as opposed to copper clad aluminum (CCA) wire, and are therefore fully compliant with UL Code 444 and National Electrical Code TIA-568-C.2 fire and safety standards, which require pure bare copper wire in communications cables.

Pros: It's the right length

Cons: It's not shielded, contrary to the Monoprice claim.

I bought 16 of them because I needed to reduce the RF emissions of my product. I was puzzled that only the grey 6" patch cord was shielded, and the other colors weren't. I now assume that the Monprice categorization of this cable is in error.
Rating of 1: Description said shielded, but it's not. Everything else seems satisfactory. But I need shielded.....

Hello Brian,

This item does not show up on the link you have noted on your review. As it is not listed under shielded. Can you please let me know if you have mistaken this for another pID#? Please let me know, thank you!

This cable does the trick for tight jumps (very tight). You will need the patch ports right next to each other.
