Product Description

The AmazonBasics RJ45 Cat5e Ethernet Patch Cable connects computers to network components in a wired Local Area Network (LAN). Intended for use at home or in the office, this Cat5e Patch Cable meets more stringent standards than conventional Category 5 cables and is capable of transmitting data at speeds of up to 1000 Mbps (or to 1 Gigabit per second). Includes gold-plated connectors for high-quality and corrosion-free connectivity, as well as male RJ45 connectors for compatibility with network components including computers, printers, routers and switch boxes.

Intended for Wired Home and Office Networks
The speed and quality of a wired LAN is largely determined by how fast data is transmitted between computers and network components. Whether you are sharing files on a Network Attached Server, printing from a network printer or connecting several computers through a network switch, you will want to connect your devices with a cable that provides a fast and reliable connection.

The Cat5e Ethernet Patch Cable is a cable assembly that consists of UTP (unshielded twisted pair) cable with an RJ45 male connector crimped on to each end. This patch cord is used to provide connectivity between any two components that have RJ45 jacks. The cable's RJ45 connectors offer universal connectivity to computers and network components, such as routers, switch boxes, network printers and network-attached storage devices.

Built For Superior Network Speed and Reliable Connectivity
The Cat5e Ethernet Patch Cable features RJ45 connectors with gold plating for accurate data transfer and reliability. This cable is capable of transmitting data at speeds of up to 1000 Mbps (or 1 Gigabit per second).

The faster the speed of your connections, the greater your network's ability to stream video, music and other data that requires high bandwidth. (Please note that your network's speed is determined by many factors in addition to the cables, including your router, switch boxes and components.)

Manufactured for Accuracy and Longevity
The AmazonBasics RJ45 Cat5e Ethernet Patch Cable is a 4PR UTP network cable, which means that it consists of four unshielded twisted pairs surrounded by a durable outer PVC jacket. UTP cabling systems are the most commonly deployed cable type in the United States because they minimise noise and interference that can degrade signal quality. They are used widely in airports, telecommunications systems, building and construction industries, as well as in banking.

Slow data transfer and interference can be caused by one pair in a cable "bleeding" signals to another pair through a process known as induction or "crosstalk." This process can cause slow data transfer or even completely inhibit the transfer of data signals. Crosstalk is minimised by the twisting of the pairs in the cable. Each pair is wound together for the purposes of cancelling out noise that can interfere with the signal.

A Cat5e Ethernet Patch Cable can also be referred to as a Network Cable, Computer Cable, Category 5e Cable, Ethernet Cable or Data/LAN Cable.

Size: 50 Feet / 15.2 m Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
AmazonBasics RJ45 Cat5e Ethernet Patch Cable (15.2 Metres) [Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging] is exactly what it says in the description. It is one of a range of quality interconnects, supplied by Amazon and bearing the AmazonBasics logo, which includes HDMI, USB and other length Ethernet LAN cables. Although reasonably priced the product is of good quality and comes in Amazon's Certified Frustration Free Packaging - in this case a small plain brown cardboard box, factory-sealed with an adhesive product description label, which was indeed very easy to open. No finger-cutting plastic to deal with, and green too!

This is a long cable at 15.2m, or 50ft if that means more to you, and if your router etc is a fair way from the equipment to be connected to it then this cable will give you a good length of cable run. It is terminated with male gold-plated RJ45 plugs each end and is nicely made and also seems pretty robust. I had not been aware of Amazon's range of cables before trying this one, but it is a range I will consider next time I'm looking for an interconnect. Not the cheapest on the market by any means, but good value at the price and well packaged. It's a LAN cable - I'm surprised how much Amazon found to say about it in the Manufacturer's Description - but read it anyway!

Size: 14 Feet / 4.2 m Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The AmazonBasics Ethernet 4.2m patch cable feels like a good (though not exceptional) quality cable and arrives in an easy-open box (inside another quite unnecessary box). The cable is a bit 'springy' and holds its shape a little too much while you're trying to place it. If hiding your Ethernet cable is important then it might be worth considering a Flat Network Patch Cable as they can be easier to conceal behind furniture or beneath carpets and rugs - although standing on cables is never a good idea.

Quick tip, in case it helps : If you have 1000base-T capable devices on your network have a quick look at the plugs on the ends of your Ethernet cables and check they have all the pins wired-up (like this cable does) because in the past many cheaper cables (like the ones bundled with devices) only had half the pins wired. That was good enough for 10base-T or 100base-T networks but it's not good enough for 1000base-T and you'll have problems.

Lets face it, wireless isn't all it's cracked up to be when you're in an urban area with 100s of wireless networks pumping out their frequencies all over the house, so when you need that extra juice, this is probably one of the best ways to go, with 15m you can easily connect another PC in another room if you're in a small flat, or just connect a device from the living room to the hallway where you keep your router. This makes life much simpler, as you get dedicated 1Gbit throughput, something wireless cannot do.

The stress free packaging is good too, it comes in a box about 4", like a pizza box and you just need to cut the plastic that keeps the ethernet cable together. Once that is done it's usable straight away.

This is a good cable as it's lengthy - and it's made with decent components, even gold plated. I have had no problems with mine so far and can highly recommend it.

Size: 50 Feet / 15.2 m Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've owned some other Amazon Basics cables and they have always been of high quality, so I chose this Ethernet one for that reason. As Amazon promise the cable comes in "frustration free packaging", and this is easy to recycle.

The cable construction quality is of a high standard, I've had some flimsy, easy to break cables in the past. Handily the connectors also have a tiny piece of rubber over them which stops the plastic clip part from snapping off - good idea as this means the cable still makes the clicking sound that it should, even after many times unplugging and plugging it in.

At 15.2 metres, it is a decent length. Not sure why Amazon have given us the 0.2 metres, but this goes a fair distance. Luckily these type of cables can operate without loss at distances of up to 100m, so don't worry if you're thinking that this length is going to slow you down somehow. Because of it's length, this cable is probably aimed at those deterred by wireless. It could easily go from one room to the next, or round and up a staircase. It can be used to connect a router to PC/Xbox/PS3 etc, and I use it with my Roberts internet radio.

This cable satisfies Cat5e specifications so will transmit at 1000Mbps (1Gbps) if that facility is useful to you.

This item is exactly as advertised - a long cable to extend from an internet router to a computer/xbox/ps3 or any other device that needs an internet connection. On our particular need it was for an xbox that did not have a wireless adapter. It arrived next day with our Prime membership and was opened to find exactly as expected - an extremely long cord to match the fittings our on BT HomeHub to the back of the Xbox360. The cable is quite thick, but this is the case with all ethernet cables.

The clips have a plastic protector which is great to prevent the clips from falling out or breaking. The length of the cord is more than plenty to reach from the main socket where the HomeHub is to almost anywhere in the house, though probably not exactly along the walls. Great because there is no chance of interference from other wireless adapters. My partner plays online on his xbox Live membership all the time and only experiences lag when our isp is slowed down due to living in a rural area with an older exchange.

The connection from the cable itself to the connection is also of good quality and doesn't feel like it could snap in two with a flick like some others. The price is perfect with some of the main competition with this in our local area from PCWorld being nearer to £30-40 than the price of this item.

Definitely would recommend this to anyone looking for a cheap, good, and fast solution to extending the reach of their internet connection.
