    I used this to hook up my tivo dirt cheap Talked with sales man Brent at tulsa 71/169 store and he is a cord cutter himself and has the same system ( tivo plus mini), so a trusted him and cut the cord, and boy am I glad I did, it has saved my family $117 a month and I feel we are getting more quality programming now than with cable. we got the lifetime service so all we pay is $99 a year to prime and I watch any thing i want for free. If it is a series that is not free it is normally 19.99 on average for 12-15 shows so that's about $1.25-1.57 per show so may monthly cost to watch tv is ($99 for prime per yr) $8.25 a month plus + 4 (series like ax men) $1.57 x 4 = $6.28 and they air weekly so that would be times 4 weeks = $25.12 so $8.25 (prime)+ $25.12(series)= 33.37 a month to watch more programming than I was paying for cable. I have had the system for a month and a half and I love it we watch 5 hrs of tv a day and I could not go back to cable after this. I have had "o" problems and just love the user friendliness of the system

    Works for its intended use.

    The specific cable I purchased works for its intended purpose, but it does not maintain a consistent signal/access to the network (my wireless signal is blocked for some reason). The problem I'm having is the signal is frequently interrupted, blocking access, and requiring me to unplug, and re-plug the cable back into the router. So I wonder if the thicker cable I did not purchase would have managed the flow/access to the network more effectively than the thinner cable. Unfortunately I am not that tech savvy, and rely on the expertise of your sales associates. They said it should not be a problem when I asked. But even with the inconvenience, I do have network access, until I can have the Geek squad fine a fix for why my wireless signal is being block.

    Best Product Purchased and Meets My Needs

    This Ethernet cable was recommended to me for purchase. I called the Best Buy local store, but they did not have any information for me about this product. I spoke with a Customer Service Representative from the Best Buy headquarters in the Philippines and he was very nice, customer service oriented and professional. We stayed on the phone for about 2- 3 hours talking about this product and talking about how high it is to buy internet in the Philippines rather than the United States. This product is easy to use and it was easy to place into my laptop and place into the back of my modem. Once I placed my Ethernet cable into both places I was able to be hard wired to the internet rather than use WIFI. I recommend this Ethernet cable to anuyone for purchase because the price is inexpensive and it is easy to use. My Ethernet cable was shipped to me in a quick time.

    Well Made, Perfect length

    Shopping for a well made product is sometimes difficult as there is a natural tendency to chase price versus (quality) product. That is not the case here. Best Buy has already cleared the field of low quality products protecting the consumer from making a poor purchase decision. We recently moved making it necessary to reconfigure our home network connections. After a short trip to our local Best Buy, we easily found the Ethernet cable (length & construction quality) necessary to route data to my newly established point of use. Installation was a breeze and we were back on line in no time flat. If you want to shop with confidence check out your local Best Buy store. They are staffed with knowledgeable, friendly people that will enhance rather than detract from your buying experience. Check them out. You won't be disappointed.

    Did just what I needed!

    This Ethernet coupler/extender helped me to give more slack on my Ethernet cable, being that the idiot who installed new carpets ran the cable underneath of the new carpet! Which wouldn't have been too bad as it would've been out of sight, rather than looking gaudy running along the edges of hallway and walls, but the dumb-*** kept like 10 extra ft of cable in the room where my Comcast Modem/Router is, and only like 2-3ft of extra cable in the room that I soley need it for! The extra cable actually comes out from the edge of the hallway carpet, at my bedroom doorway, which initially made the cable taunt when connected, and could only be in spot close enough for my ps4 to reach the Ethernet, and even then u could only move it approximately 6inches in any direction! This helped me to be able and buy another smaller cable to extend the connection and give my ps4 a little more freedom to move! I just wish I could've found a 1 to 2 adapter!

    Just what Dr. IT ordered

    Wirelessness was failing me. Great if it works, sad when it doesn't. Infuriating when it's iffy and you never know if you are going to get connect. After many frustrating hours I went back to hard wire. Surprise, surprise, it was iffy. My friendly neighborhood Dr. IT noticed that one end of my connector cord was frayed, probably from being pulled out incorrectly. Went into Best Buy to get a new one. Staff was VERY patient with this old man and explained the differences in price and capabilities. They listened carefully and decided this was enough to meet my needs. They not only saved me money, but gave me the confidence that I'd done something right in the arcane world of IT. Thank you, Best Buy. Keep hiring knowledgeable, customer oriented staff, even for the back rows of the store.

    Works Fine, Good for Short Distances

    It's a CAT 5e network cable - there's not much to say about it. It wasn't defective in any way, and as a CAT 5e cable, it's mainly intended for Fast Ethernet (100 Mbps) connections. Gigabit equipment will also work with it, and even achieve higher speeds than Fast Ethernet, but your actual throughput won't approach 1 Gbps unless you go to CAT 6 cabling. At 3 feet in length, this cable is suitable for, say, connecting equipment on a desk to a desktop switch, which was what I bought it for. It could be suitable for rack use as well, depending on how far the components on your rack are from each other. For more typical uses, like connecting a desktop computer or printer to a network jack on the wall, you'll probably want a longer cable.

    Needed to run Cat 5 to my new office, didin’t want to do any splicing, etc... so I picked this up to run from my router to my desk area and then another one to run from my router to my TV in the office so I could stream. No problems at all. Hooked it up and ran it, then connected my laptop to make sure everything worked as advertised prior to drywalling...good to go. Solid signal, able to stream no problem. Ends fit fine through a 3/4” spade bit hole in my 2x4’s. So minor kinks while unwinding (could have been user error!) but other than that, no issues.
