I had to use this cable for IP camera installation near high electrical loads and interference areas. The cable itself works great and blocks out the interference. Individual pairs were twisted nice and tight inside the jacket and the shielding material and jacket itself were of good quality. The box that the cable comes in on the other hand made my project last longer than it should have. The box is poorly designed/constructed.I was constantly having to go back to the box to untangle snags that happened inside the box. On a few occasions the sides of the box opened and wire then spilled out. Very frustrating.
PROS: Great cable, well shielded and wires inside are twisted good and tight.
CONS: The box! Terrible spooling/ability to pull wire from box.
I had to run Cat5e STP in a noisy ceiling with lots of old fluorescent tube ballasts and this cable performed perfectly!
PROS: This is good cable and performs exactly as expected.
CONS: The box construction is crappy cardboard and falls apart easily. After a few pulls the cable guide attached to the spool came off. Eventually the cardboard ripped open after attempting to carry the box.
