"Not being on a real is not an issue, just needs to be handled with care and rebound after use. Product works fine, although only tested on a 12m distance. Key issue for me is the solid cable seems very brittle, bits broke off just untwisting the pairs, and both the core and outer sheathing seem thinner and poor compared to previous cheap cables used. It is very fiddly to get the cables into the Rj45 plugs they do not untwist easily and will not straighten out , my RJ45 connectors would not work with this cable, but they were fine on other solid core cables...I have used this for socket to socket connection, and use a patch cable for the RJ45 connection, this suits me, buy if this is all you need. I would not recommend for patch cables or RJ45 connection. In short, pay more and get better a better quality cable."

Not a reel
8 May 2009

, south east
"Regarding the review above, network cable rarely comes on a reel. Even the 305 metre boxes are just that, boxes of cable - not reels.
This product is a little bit expensive, there are many places you could get 305m for not a great deal more. But for a small job it is quite handy."

WATCH OUT

"This cable is a solid core not strands.
The RJ45 connectors on sale from screwfix pack of 10 and 100 are for stranded type of cable so be aware when buying all you need to wire your home network.
I have now tried to make 6 connections all not working because I bought the wrong parts from the one place.
I now need to buy more crimps to re make all of the ends with solid wire type.
DON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE."

"As per the previous reviews.
Very difficult to work with as it is not no a reel and keeps getting knotted up when trying to run it
Kept curling up and kinking all the time even after being unknotted in the garden and trying to uncurl it.
Can't really recommend it."

Buy a boxed reel!

"It is not on a reel so unless you really only want 100m and don't mind spending all day taking the kinks out, buy a boxed reel."
