FAKE PRODUCT - NOT CAT5 as uses inferior CCA wire, not pure copper!
on 12 May 2017
WARNING - these cables are NOT CAT5e. They're not CAT anything.
CAT5 (or CAT5e, or CAT6 etc.) is an internationally approved standard which states that the wires inside the cable must be made of SOLID COPPER. (We know that copper wire is good for signals, right?)
These cables are NOT copper. They are CCA - Copper Clad Aluminium. Aluminium is BAD for signals - very bad.
The fact that this information is hidden from the product description is deceptive. You simply can't have CAT anything cables with CCA wire.
This is why plenty of people get bad signal, slow speeds, dropouts, etc with these wires. Please, save your money and do NOT buy.
I will be pursuing for a refund - this is why clear descriptions are a must.
