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.
I What I do NOT like about the cable is the boxes and plastic box feeders. The box and feeders themselves are complete garbage. I do not think I have ever emptied one of these boxes and had the plastic feeder not be broken or ripped completely from the box by the end. A good number of the plastic feeders are broken upon delivery. The boxes themselves are also easily destroyed. If you have to get into the box more than a couple of times to untangle the wire (and you will, due to the broken feeders) the box will fall apart. If I knew for a fact that monoprice had a similar cable in a better box for a nearly comparable price I would opt for the better box. The box issue can be very annoying if you are trying to pull a long cable alone. With a partner near the feed it's not as much of a frustration until the box falls apart.
The cable itself I will give a 9.
The box, while easier than working with a spool most of the time, I can only give a 5. Better than no box, but not by much.
easy to work with the cable itself termination\Punch down
CONS: Crappy box
Crappy plastic feeder
no ft. markers on wire
PROS: Everything is pro about this cable, the sheet, internal separator for the pairs, the actual pairs themselves are all of the best quality.
PROS: Great Price, easy to work with
CONS: Box could be a bit more sturdy, but minor in the scheme of things
Monoprice.com sent it promptly with no hassles, perfect all around!
PROS: great deal, easy to pull, easy to use
PROS: Good strong cable, nice easy packaging.
CONS: I wish it was marked for distance every so long on the cable, you have no idea how much is left unless you weigh it or something.
Most cat6 cables have a string inside to help you remove the outer jacket without a chance of cutting one of the inside cables. This particular cable does not have that string.
