FLEXboot Series Cat5e 24AWG UTP Ethernet Network Patch Cable, 100ft Green
Save the time and hassle of building Ethernet cables by using fixed-length UTP Cat5e Ethernet Network Cables from Monoprice!
The FLEXboot Series of cables feature a thinner cable boot protecting the plug retaining clip, which makes it much easier to depress the clip and protective cover.
- Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) Category 5e Ethernet cable
- 24AWG stranded, pure bare copper conductors
- 350MHz bandwidth
- Snagless cable boot protects the plug retaining clip
- Thinner cable boot makes it easier to depress the clip and protective cover
- 50µm gold plated contacts
- 100-foot 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.
The green Cat5e cables seem to use a lower quality outer shell material. I have bought Monoprice white and grey color Cat5e cables in the past and the outer shell's quality rival that of the Cat6 cables. Due to the quality issues of the outer shell, this cable kinks more easily than the other color Cat5e cables. I have free Cat5e cables that came with devices such as routers, modems, and switches that are of higher quality. Despite the issues, the cable does transmit data fine.
PROS: It works.
CONS: Oily residue. Easily kinked. Lower quality shell.
