I purchased this 50' cable to connect a modem in one room to my router in another as the room where I was moving my PC had no cable jack and the cable company was asking way too much to install a new jack! The length was just right and although the cable is not as wide/thick as the shorter Ethernet cables I have it seems to work just as good. No complaints and I saved a bundle! I would purchase again.Read More

I like the color of this Ethernet cable, white or gray. Most Ethernet cables are blue or yellow, and if you have to extend that cable across much floor space, yellow or blue are too much color. I have purchased 3 of these, at different lengths, and they all work well. And, the price is right!!!Read More
I bought this ethernet cable for my modem router. Works great. Arrived on time. Can't beat the price.Read More
