Save the time and hassle of building Ethernet cables by using fixed-length UTP Cat6 Ethernet Network Cables from Monoprice!

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.
Work perfectly with NetGear Gigabit switch
I got to choose 9 different colours
PROS: Well made, was purple for color coding, works.
CONS: Didn't pop themselves out of the package and install themselves.
PROS: This review applies to all path cords that Monoprice supplies in multiple colors
Multiple colors make the tracing of patch cords easy.
CONS: Orange and red look very similar, at least for some men. Beware than 10% of males have color blindness.
I bought a set of purple ranging from 6" to 10' first to measure out my patches, then labeled them with their length. This made it super easy to place my full patching order (over 50 cables) with confidence that I was getting the proper length.
The boot is a little stiff when try to unlatch the cable, but you get a feel for it, so to speak.
PROS: Cheap, easy, reliable
CONS: Boot is stiff
PROS: These cables work fine, the natural curve of the cable is easy to work with and the stress-relief boot is sturdy.
CONS: The packaging on these things is super annoying. If you've bought more than a handful, expect to be sitting there for a while unpacking them. Each cable comes in a bag and has 2 twist ties, every 10 cables come in another bag.
I wish there was a true bulk packaging option. It takes way more time than necessary to get these ready for use.
