I am so used to standard thickness Cat6 cables that when I first discovered these I nearly crapped myself. Impossibly thin with absolutely ZERO drawbacks! As soon as I received my first set of these cables, I immediately ordered more to replace EVERY SINGLE standard thickness Cat6 cables in the house. Nothing else comes close to these cables! You have to hold them for yourself and give them a try to believe it!
My home network and media cabinet started where AT&T ran their drops and grew incrementally from there. You know how it goes, fill up their Ethernet ports, add a small hub, fill that up and so on. In the process, cat 5 and 6 cables of varying lengths and quality, plus all the device power cords all get jumbled into a cable hairball. Every time I would open that cabinet door to do anything, like add a Pi or two, I would start muttering under my breath, "you've got to organize this".
These cables provided the impetus and, wow, what a difference. All work very well, and the space saving and ease of organizing make these worth every penny. I never knew the joy an Ethernet cable could bring. Highest recommendation.
I was really impressed with these ultra slim patch cables. Obviously, these have thinner wires so there is more resistance per foot which precludes PoE for long distances. I wonder what is maximum recommended PoE distance. Currently, I'm only using 1-foot length on a patch panel. Hopefully price will come down with greater competition.
PROS: Ultra thin patch cord ideal for connecting a large switch to a patch panel.
More flexible than standard patch cables.
CONS: I wouldn't trust it for long cable runs with PoE
I'm using the 12" cables to go from cable modem to router to switch to NAS and VOIP and AP and other devices. Love them. They are super flexible. The previous 12" cables would actually push the devices off the shelf they were so stiff. Now everything sits where I put it without tension and pressure. The connectors are quality and easy to disengage. No detected performance impact or increased interference.
