Cat5e 24AWG UTP Ethernet Network Patch Cable, 6-inch White
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
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.
- Spec Sheet (Apr 20, 2017)
I know a lot of people are going for CAT6 or CAT6e, and realize 10 Gbps switches are becoming more and more affordable, but for a Home Network anything over 1 Gbps is absurd at the moment aside from the internal infrastructure itself, and even that is a stretch for many of us.
I'm a Networking Guru, and to say I can tell a difference between CCA or Copper, UTP vs STP, or even MHz rating is incorrect. I just knew I wanted to sort everything by color to identify Infrastructure, Computer (networked device), VoIP, or Security. I'm also planning to purchase labels to put around cables to help distinguish specific runs further, and of course a proper rack and patch panel.
If I had to say *one* thing that truly sets me back sometimes is shipping costs. I realize the cables are fairly inexpensive, but I also know the cost for a USPS box isn't as much as they're saying it actually is. I don't have a problem with this though, because I usually order in bulk which immediately pays itself off including the absurd shipping cost.

PROS: Perfect size for a clean and organized network cabinet. Overnight shipping costs less than standard UPS? Winner.
CONS: Not 100% reliable. Approximately 2% of patch cords received have poor or no continuity on the 3rd or 4th pairs (pins 6-8).
PROS: - Very Cheap
- Good size to neatly cable rack.
CONS: - The jacket on the end is very stiff and makes it hard to unplug the cable.
