"Good quality and cheap, what more could I say. It wasn't the cheapest, but wasn't the dearest either, but quality was as good as I could have hoped for, I have had three of these items and they are spot on."

Cable.
24-Apr-2012
By
, Birmingham.
"Its cable!
Indispensable when asking electrons to usher their way orderly around your home/business.
Good quality cable, with prices that are sometimes unbeatable by other merchant trade accounts.
Cardboard reel is a little flimsy, however to be honest this has never really been an issue as I tend to install the cable long before the reel is damaged.
The 'dispenser box' however is pointless other than to provide protection to the reel if it's stored as the cable rips into the box almost instantly.

"company I worked for order in a 1000m of the stuff, and like one of the other reviews when stripping back with knife the outer sheath would stick to the inner PVC and leaving the outer sheathing stuck like glue on it, I email Prysmian to ask about this fault and they said sometimes this happens in the making of the product and said if i had any more they would replace the rest of my batch of cable, which was nice of them."

"What can I say; its a piece of grey cable that does what you would expect it to do.
It does bend around easily and has good quality insulation and a solid, strong earth core.

Awful !!
13-Jan-2010
By
, Swansea
"The outer core is so togh you keep breaking into the cores underneath (using standard electrical pliers and cutters).
Just make sure you leave enough length at the termination end or after a few cuts you may end up short !!. Worst cable I have ever used.
