Cat6 24AWG UTP Ethernet Network Patch Cable, 2ft Purple
Save the time and hassle of building Ethernet cables by using fixed-length UTP Cat6 Ethernet Network Cables from Monoprice!
- Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) Category 6 Ethernet cable
- 24AWG stranded, pure bare copper conductors
- 550MHz bandwidth
- Snagless cable boot protects the plug retaining clip
- 50µm gold plated contacts
- 2-foot length (tip to tip)
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.
PROS: Works great. Good quality.
All of the pre-made cables I ordered from monoprice were labeled as 568B, so that's what I used to wire the house - didn't have a clue until I did a little research.
PROS: Quality in design and materials used and manufactured with precision all of this delivered ahead of schedule
CONS: There aren't any!
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: This cable is very similar to any other Cat 6 cable sold on here. Excellent quality jackets really protect the cable from abuse and they will last a long time. The various colors help coordinating a home network where you can be sure which lead goes to which room.
CONS: Sometimes these cables lengths are measured from the very tip of the cable and some are measured from the back of the jacket, so the length seems to vary by the length of the connector. Generally this is never an issue.
