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 :)
PROS: It works. And its orange.
CONS: Refuses walk the dog or help with the dishes.
PROS: Same great Monoprice quality. Great cable, plug and play.
CONS: The only con I would mention would be the lack of an option to not have the strain relief - as this makes it a little harder to use with a patch panel.
