3FT 24AWG Cat6 500MHz Crossover Bare Copper Ethernet Network Cable - Orange

An Ethernet Crossover cable is used to connect two PCs directly together, without using a hub or switch in between. Each cable is made of 24AWG stranded pure copper conductor pairs with 50µm gold plated contacts (short body). Most budget cables skimp with only 10µm. Each cable features color matched, snagless, strain relief boots.

Monoprice Cat5e and Cat6 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 Cat5e and Cat6 communications cables.

Pros: Bright orange casing makes it totally obvious that it's not a regular patch cable :)

Cons: None.

First time I've actually had a need for a crossover cable. Was looking to reinforce a connection between two enterprise grade switches in lieu of running another direct fiber link and paying an arm and a leg for labor costs. As expected, Monoprice yet again delivers on a quality cable.

It does, indeed, cross over

Pros: It works. And its orange.

Cons: Refuses walk the dog or help with the dishes.

Its a cable, it carries signals from one end to the other. It works and hasn't fallen apart yet. I don't know what else you can really say for a cable...

I've installed hundreds of these Cat6 cables this year and they always work perfectly. I haven't had one fail yet. They are some of the best and easiest to use patch cables on the market. I actually prefer these to some of the ones that are several times more expensive.

Can't beat the price. Always my first place to go. The national retail chains are total rip offs.

I bought this cable so I could link two computers together in a LAN network so I could have a 1v1 starcraft battle with my friend. It worked great! This is a high quality product for a low price.
