I purchased these cables for some of my coworkers and me. We are fortunate enough to be able to work from home and our VPN connection is more stable with a hardwired connection into our home routers. The 50' cable allows me to setup anywhere within my living space (den, dining room, kitchen counter, living room, deck). The 90 degree connector works great on my laptop and maintains a low profile and eliminates snags. The medal frame around the connector makes it even sturdier. The SlimRun cable is much more flexible and not as obtrusive. For just over $5 for a 50' ethernet cable what's not to like. This was a great purchase.
