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.
Questions and Answers
From Wikipedia on AWG (American Wire Gauge): ... Stranded wire AWG sizes
AWG gauges are also used to describe stranded wire. In this case, it describes a wire which is equal in cross-sectional area to the total of all the cross-sectional areas of the individual strands; the gaps between strands are not counted. When made with circular strands, these gaps occupy about 10% of the wire area, thus requiring a wire about 5% thicker than equivalent solid wire.
Stranded wires are specified with three numbers, the overall AWG size, the number of strands, and the AWG size of a strand. The number of strands and the AWG of a strand are separated by a slash. For example, a 22 AWG 7/30 stranded wire is a 22 AWG wire made from seven strands of 30 AWG wire. ...
The cable is LABELED 24 AWG without a ratio-like suffix and thus is solid and as verified by visual (magnified) inspection in an earlier response.

PROS: They work and they are cheap, not in construction, but in price!
CONS: None, that I can think of...
I wish I had tested it before I installed it because it will be 10x as hard to get it out and re-run another cable. For now I'm going to have to buy a kit to replace the plugs on each line, hoping that is the only problem. Otherwise I'll have to spend a lot of money to redo the wiring.
Never had a bad product from Monoprice and only gave this 5 stars because there is a chance that I caused the damage and don't realize it, since I didn't test before installing.
PROS: Long and thick, seemed like it would be very sturdy and long lasting.
CONS: One of the lines is bad.
