Pros: Easy to pull in conduit
Great for long runs
Used this cable to do 120+ ft runs between a utility building and main house. Works as specified. Super easy to pull thru conduit and walls for in wall wiring. No problem terminating the ends if you have the appropriate tool and know what you are doing.

Pros: Delivered quickly
Cons: Kinked repeated inside the box
I am building a new house. My builder allowed me to run my out low voltage wires, which would save me a significant amount of money. However, there was a very small window of time for me to get this done before the walls were sealed up - basically a weekend. I purchased two boxes (orange and green) of 1000' to minimize the amount of time it would take to get this done.
Unfortunately the orange box had a significant amount of kinking inside the box for the first 500'. Not only did it slow me down to have to get off the ladder to gently unkink the kink before guiding out of the box, but I am now scared to death that one-half of my lines are ruined because of a defect. Since I only had a limited amount of time I could not return the box for a better one. Hopefully everything will be fine, but the walls are closed and whatever damage there might be is done. Thankfully the green lines came out smoothly as I would have expected.

Pros: It's cat 5e compliant cable in any color you wish.
Cons: The plastic hole for the cable to exit the box is too small. I also think the box is too thin.
The tightly wound cable and the small plastic exit hole create continual kinks in your cable as you pull each loop out of the box. Enough of them, and your cat 5e is no longer cat 5e. I tried taking out the plastic "feeder", I tried pulling out of the side of the box, nothing worked. The problem is even worse on the Cat 6 cable. Be careful, if you are going to use this cable for long pulls.
In case you're wondering. I have pulled 1000s of miles of cable over the last 15 years. Nothing to be proud of, but I know what I'm talking about.
