PROS: Great quality and great price
CONS: only comes in blue
The cables themselves seem very high quality, however, fair warning, they are thicker and stiffer than then Cat-5e. Again, it may not be the cables fault at all and can be just the device compatibility, but I have to say that I was very disappointed.
For regular home solutions, you may want to stick to Cat-5e due to device compatibility or sensitivity issues that sometimes happen with the Cat-6a type of cable that I've read about. I have re-ordered all Cat-5e replacements hoping for much better results.
I have ordered several other cables for professional audio use (XLR) and never had one problem, Very high quality cables and superior performance is what I am used to from Monoprice.
