Amazon have seen fit to cross-post this review between two different products, so I have edited it accordingly.
These 4.2metre and 15.2metre Cat5e cables match the product description.
+ Strain relief is good between cable and connectors. + All four pairs are wired to gold plated contacts. + The release clip has a satisfactory plastic thumb flap. + The cable is anonymous creamy-grey with 'Amazonbasics' added to the standard type specification.
- The featured 'frustration-free' robust box does not fit my generously sized letter-box, and while it was oversized for the 4.2m cable, it was a good fit for the 15.2m cable. A smaller, slimmer jiffy bag might have been more appropriate for the smaller cable.
One delivery was packaged inside a standard Amazon Book-wrapper as well - quite un-necessary considering how durable the f-f box is, and which was used alone on the other cable.
I've replaced two 2m cables and a junction with the single 4.2m cable. I needed the 15.2m to be able to work out in the garden (no wifi), and tried it during a few brief hours of spring sunshine.
A speed test showed that that both work fine at 100MHz. I don't have giganet so cannot comment on the top rate.
Value for money is about right for a fiver or less, cheaper cables exist, so do much more expensive ones.
Only four stars since they make a big point of featuring the packaging, which is not frustration free.
