The Rosewill Cat 6 network cable offers a reliable Ethernet connection. It is designed to handle high bandwidth intensive application, and drastically reduces both impedance and structural return loss (SRL) as compared to standard 100 MHz wire to ensure error-free transmission. The durable blue jacket easily color-codes your cable runs while providing rugged flexibility for network connection. To ensure long lasting performance, the cable features a strain relief to prevent the RJ45 connector from bending at sharp angle, and a snagless design to protect the RJ45 clip from snags during installation.

  • newegg Cat 6 Network Cable The Rosewill Cat 6 network cable features reduced impedance and structure return loss (SRL) to ensure high performance network connection, ideally suited for use with Gigabit, Fast Ethernet, and Ethernet applications.
  • newegg Excellent Construction The strain relief prevents the cable from being bent at sharp angle at the connector to reduce the risk of cable damage. The clip protector keeps the cable from unwanted snag while routing the cable.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat ethernet cable

Pros: The cable works like a charm. It is cheap and comes in many different colors (got the blue one). The snagless design is very good, it is not that bad like people said in other comments.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: You will save a ton of money buying Ethernet cables online than in store. 50 feet cables will easily go $30 in store.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's cheap and it works. I ordered 3 of these (1 gray, 2 blue) and they all worked.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I used these to hard wire internet to 3 bedrooms. Cheaper than buying bulk cable when you only need about a 100 feet total. They work fine for keystone jacks.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat 50ft for less than 5!

Pros: long, thick cable, very fast, reliable, durable, transportable, blue, cat 6 (for my cisco e4200 its the fastest tested and approved wire type) matches my rosewill r5 case, very easy to wrap, its almost coiled because of the wire cover quality

Cons: not made in america( sorry for exporting american money to china, at least im not the president lol) linus hasn't said anything about it, he probably has one, but if he doesn't. Also its bits at the end of the cable are not metal bu tfor $5 i get what i get, if i choose a cat 5 for $5 it would have metal bits, but i was told this has speed advantages that being said, make sure your router can handle the speed of this cable (most can) dont just buy because its cheap, i contacted cisco before buying

Rosewill should send linus tech tips one of these cables to review

Other Thoughts: cat 6 cable( gets all the speed we pay charter for and then some) less than $5 when i bought, coming from a LAN party person this is the best thing next to wireless N for LAN parties, AC isn't ready, N is faster, don't believe me research tests and such and you decide

conditions i use this cable for: indoor (confident outdoor would work fine)
also my tech knowledge is research, I'm not linus or paul from newegg, but i know how to assemble computers, dissemble, check for problems and tech specs are my stronger point, i cant tell you why the nvidia Geforce 660 ti is more efficient than the 560 and performs better, but i can tell you why running more than 60 fps doesn't mean anything without a monitor than runs at 60hz, or refresh rate, and having a faster clocked Amd processor means nothing if its faster than the Intel with a lower clock, the real comparison is them both at the same clock water cooled, thats my tech knoledge

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Hooked up and was on the network within a matter of seconds, cable is nicely wrapped and easy to get around.

Cons: After about six hours of use, streaming videos, copying to the computer over the network I started getting "Network Connection Cannot Be Found" and I would have to reset the computer, even unplug the cable and plug it back in.

Finally after several days of this issue I hooked up my old CAT5 cable.

Other Thoughts: Rosewill I don't know if they manufacture the products or if they just buy products and slap their name on it. I know that pre-made networking cable can have problems but I have made several purchases before of pre-made cable without problems.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking cable - from a company that seems to care about customer service

Pros: I previously purchased a different cable model - actually three - and of the three one was bad. Contacted Newegg - was told to talk to manufacturer. Contacted Rosewill - they immediately apologized and said they'd issue a refund through Newegg. Then it took a few calls to convince Newegg to actually issue the refund.

Got this cable, plugged it in - works. Not much I can say about a cable, since I'm not getting out my meter to determine theoretical bandwidth on it right now - but I can say something about the manufacturer. They took care of me - and I've seen other postings indicating they try to take care of others.

I'll buy again, and have no hesitation in recommending them.

Cons: None.
