Not Cat6, Get what you pay forCable was not what I ordered, it arrived in a CAT6 box, but the cable is clearly labeled CAT5. Wish I had looked at it before handing off to the installers. It's fragile and not shielded, I'll need to tear it all out and replace it. Would not recommend, will not buy again. 1Would not recommend!!Very difficult to work with. Individual wires are extremely thin, as thin as the 15+ yr old DSL line this was replacing. They are very brittle. Slight movement of the cable while moving the jack back into its box in the wall caused caused the wires to snap off. Even the sections that weren't stripped would snap off from a little movement. Unfortunately I didn't notice how brittle it was until after I ran it to the lowest part of our crawlspace. Hopefully it will hold up now that it's installed because belly crawling through the crawlspace is not fun! I definitely would NOT buy this again. 1Stay away from CCA!I bought this product in a rush, and should have read the other 1-star reviews before ordering! The reason this cable is so cheap is because it is made from copper-clad aluminum (CCA), not pure copper. Just search for "cca vs copper" and you'll get tons of information -- everything from the fact that CCA is not part of the NEC standard, to horror stories around CCA's reliability, to potential heat issues when using CCA for PoE devices.When installing this wire, I had several issues with termination on everything from Keystone jacks to patch panels to RJ-45 connectors. The wire is very thin and brittle, and breaks easily when using a standard 110 punchdown tool. I initially thought something was wrong with my cable tester, but no -- it was the wire itself. I've been working with UTP Cat5/Cat6 wiring for over twenty years, and have never had so many issues with an install! This is when I looked more closely at the details of this product and found all of the issues others were having with CCA. I'm now in the process of ripping out seven brand new runs of this stuff and replacing it with copper wire, as I just don't believe CCA will be reliable long term.Save yourself hours of frustration by spending the extra money on copper! 1Do not buy this crap cable. It's not cat6.It is copper clad aluminium which does not truly meet cat6 specs. Especially if you are going to run a PoE device like a camera or access point. Also its illegal to install in most states if you are trying to meet code. Search for solid copper cat6. you will pay just a few bucks more but get a FAR higher quality cable that will both carry more information and punch down better. Stay far away from this stuff, I wish I would have. 1May work in very light instances, but...I ran over 1000 ft of this cable in my house across more than 40 runs and as it stands today, I'm having to replace at least 12. Despite all the negative reviews and CCA compliance concerns, my initial tests were quite positive, so I went forward with this product.What I found over time was the following:- Patch cables created didn't test very well. The pressure and technique needed to put RJ45 jacks on the ends is quite fragile. The only thing I can conclude was that somewhere within the cable, micro fractures of the core caused inconsistent bandwidth results. Measurements went from 1.06Gb to less than 20Mb or zero in some instances.- Patch panel to wall jack: Most of the runs to this day still test 1Gb or better, but 12 out of 40 have degraded from day 1 testing (~2 years ago). Of the 12, I've also concluded that somewhere along the run a micro breakage occurred. No amount of re-crimping, punching or jack replacements fixed the issue. Even after I pulled and replace the line, I took, for example, a 30 ft run and kept cutting it down and testing until I narrowed it to a stretch of line that caused the issues, 16ft, 11ft, 4 ft all tested bad on the actual cable.RJ45: What I've concluded from my extensive testing is that there is a certain care that one needs to take when crimping new jack heads. Stripping the exterior sheath, straightening the individual wires, inserting into he RJ45 head, actual crimping technique all come into play. At any point in this process, even the handling of the wire itself can micro fracture the aluminum core and cause issues with the copper coating. Did I put the wires under a microscope? No, but the fragility of the wire and care one must take is beyond the average individual. You have to almost treat it like fiber, very carefully. Also, for patch cables that you transport, meaning ones that you bend, put in your bag, unbend, pull and stretch on a desk could all cause your cable to fail. If it's for non-movable patch cables, as long as you get the jacks on without damage, your mileage may vary.Drops: I had considerably better success here, since I used a patch panel and keystone for wall jacks, everything was punch down and didn't require as much manual manipulation with the individual cables. Even then, 12/40 have already failed. I pulled 3 and ran similar distance tests above and found at least 2 sections of each cable to be faulty. I would also venture here that my standard process was to coil, in a very loose loop, a few extra feet of cable just in case. Is the coil at fault? I have no idea but the sections where the loop existed tested fine, it was in other areas that has issues.I would also add that I've done runs professionally for years and am experienced with networking, have proper tools and testing equipment and undoubtedly should have known better, but cost was a factor at the time and I took a chance and initial tests seemed adequate.I wouldn't say anything I've mentioned above is resolutely scientific or would reflect what others might have experienced, but my results have been quite bad, with at least 30% failure rate to date and potentially more as time goes on. I plan to only replace what fails for now, but the 3 drops I did replace with solid core copper have been rock solid.Could it be the case of a bad box? Maybe, but the cable I purchased was 4 different purchases across multiple boxes, so it would have to have been multiple bad boxes over a period of 2 years.Recommendations:If you're going to use CCA also keep in mind that no inspector would certify it, not that DIY run networks pull permits 100% of the time, but in new builds it will certainly get caught.For short term, very short runs using punched end points I would say your results may be acceptable, but patch cables are entirely out of the question, don't use CCA for patch cables at all. If you are doing more than a handful of runs, go solid core and skip CCA, you may end up having to re-run multiple drops down the road.If you have 1Gb internet speeds, a NAS, more than a handful of LAN drops, a streaming house (Netflix, Hulu, YouTube TV, etc.), cameras, home automation, etc. I would highly suggest you skip CCA and do only solid core.If you are doing power over ethernet, CCA won't carry enough power consistently to keep your cameras up 100% of the time, of the failed 12, 2 were CCA and failed many times a day. They eventually come back online, but I need them at 100% to be effective at monitoring. 1Defective Cat6 cablingI purchased the Cat6 wire for a client and installed in his residence. The ethernet cable turned out to be defective and I will now have to replace the wire because of defective manufacturing. This will be done at my expense and I will not use this wire again. 1Not pure copper. Not Cat 6 compliant.Careful. As stated this is copper clad aluminum. This is not technically CAT6 compliant though it may reach gigabit speeds for you. I flipped through so many cable choices before ordering I missed the fact. At the time of searching, amazon did not seem to have a good pure copper choice. If you want to save a little money it might work for you. Just be careful with bending/stressing the cable too much (the aluminum breaks easier than copper). Power over Ethernet is not recommended. 2Junk. No, it is NOT CAT6 cableIt says it right there in the title of this product "CAT6" this product can NOT be CAT6 compliant, which calls for solid copper wire and shouldn't even be sold as such. I was also shocked to learn that installing this cable is actually ILLEGAL in most states, as it is aluminum wire with a thin copper coating. This type of cable is not compliant with UL and TIA standards, both of which required solid or stranded copper conductors. Sending it all back, and was happy to find a vendor selling solid copper wire for a similar price point as this. Quite a ripoff. 1Spend More $$ on Thicker/Higher Quality CableI used this Cat6 Riser cable to run through my entire attic to make every room in my home have an Ethernet outlet. It works well for running the cable and gives you plenty of it and is spooled fine in the box with no kinks or knots. However, the quality of the wires inside is sub-par. Every time I was able to punch in the cables to my RJ45 female fittings, if i wasn't extremely careful and tried to maneuver the fitting as little as possible, one or multiple wires would snap off at the connection requiring me to pull them all out and re-cut and re-punch. When making an RJ45 end, they work fine since i have a crimping tool. But punching these into the female RJ45's in the wall outlet took me longer than the length of time it took me to walk through my attic and lay the cable for 6 rooms and had to redo all of them multiple times . Assumption is cheap thin copper inside the lines. Also, the plastic divider in the center was more of a pain than it was helpful. 2I am sure this is a fine product but i will never knowMake sure you are careful when buying this. Purchased it and ran multiple runs for a basement remodel. The inspector came to the house for his initial inspection and stated that because these are not UL listed they are not up to code and would need to be removed and new cable would need to be purchased. Not only does the delay the project I now have the extra time of removing and running all new cable. Did contact the manufacturer and they confirmed that these cables are not UL listed but are CM certified for in wall use. Sadly UL is all the inspectors will allow. I am sure this is a fine product but i will never know. At least if any friends need misc cat 6 length cables i have some. ugh. 2
