    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.

    Great 100' Cat5 ethernet cable if needed TODAY!

    I purchased a few of these cables for a work event. At the last minute I needed 100' cables and Best Buy came to the rescue for having them in stock and at a reasonable price for having them for immediate pickup. They worked flawlessly at 1gbit speeds without any transmission errors. The connectors are also snagless. If you need this TODAY, Best Buy had the best price and in stock. If you have time to plan, you can probably get this length cheaper online to not hurt the wallet as much. This is a dependable product. I am happy with the purchase.

    Great value :). Just wish I had a spool.

    Its not top of the line, but pretty good for my purposes. I'm currently using it to hardwire my PS4 because for whatever reason my wi-fi connection is godawful. The 100 foot ethernet cable is more than long enough to reach all the way from my room to the router on the other side of the house using floor rugs and wire hiders to keep it concealed so no one's tripping on it. I just wish it came with a spool to wrap it around for easy tangle free transport and just for the excess if i dont need all 100 feet

    I purchased 3 of these cables to hard wire my TiVO Bolt, PS4, and Xbox One because my wireless router isn't centrally located in my home and signal strength isn't always the best in my family room. I was a little hesitant to purchase Insignia cables because of bad experiences with previous Insignia product purchases; however, I'm pleasantly surprised. Connections are secure and materials are high quality. I have had zero issues with picture quality or speed using these cables.

    A Little Too Much Cable

    I recently made the decision to turn off cable. I have a computer in my living room attached to a 70 inch Vizio smart tv. I purchased this product in addition to be able to network my TV, Computer, and Smart Blu-Ray player to the internet. It was strictly plug and play. I was up and running within minutes. 100 feet was about 30 feet too long for what I needed. other than that, things are working fine... great value for in store product

    The Insignia™ - 100' Cat-5e Network Cable was inexpensive temporary fix to maintain internet connection. The 100 ft. Cat-5e Network cable worked well when I was having extensive home remodeling done. I was not aware of any downside in using it; the performance was outstanding.

    Cable is well made with shields to protect locking tab. Pulled cable through several areas where holes were drilled to run cable. Installed to extend wifi Network where previously a wireless extender was used. Set the extender as an AP, on non interfering channels and no longer had problems. Faster and more reliable operation was achieved and made for happy users.

    This is my 1st Mac. I love it now after customizing it to my preferences. Initially I was on the verge of returning it. I’ve since made the icons larger, changed font, signed into iCloud, & it seems perfect. I like it. Keep in mind I only check email, browse websites, & pay bills. For that reason it’s perfect.

    Needed a cable to run to a camera installed outside and this worked perfectly. Not to wow you and works as expected, just pretty dang pricey compared to what you can get elsewhere. Just needed it immediately and good thing there's a BB close by.

    The cable is perfect for people living in smaller homes or apartments that has their modem or router in a different room. I personally was connecting a PS4 Pro wirelessly and receiveing only about 20-22mbps when I have service regularly at 100mbps+ Since the purchase, my mpbs was stabilized around 60mbps for it and its fantastic!

    Easy to find in the store, reasonably priced and requires the IQ of a doorknob to use. What more can I say...the helpful clerk offered alternatives, but jeez, it's a hunk of ethernet cable! Will certainly shop at BB again.

    Suited The Purpose

    I bought 100' to have a direct line from our router to my son's laptop for gaming. This cable worked well, but I must admit I would have preferred the sheath to be white rather than grey, and maybe a bit more heavy duty (since we placed this long term, through the crawl space and drilled holes.) But, it works and suited our purpose fine.

    This camera is lightweight and great to travel with. The pictures have great clarity, color and make me look like a professional photographer. Now I just have to learn all of the functions so I can take advantage of all of the features it has to offer. Easy connect to smartphone or PC to download pictures without a cable.

    After trying cables bought from other online outlets let me down time and time again, I purchased this item online at Best Buy.com and it has worked from day one! Save yourself the trouble and frustration of purchasing unknown commodities from other sources. This was the ONLY Cat 5 cable that work for networking our TV screens

    I needed to run a network cable from a switch in our computer room to a wireless access point in our warehouse. A 50 foot cable wasn't long enough, as I needed one about 80 foot long. I could have made my own cable with cable we had in stock and crimp-on RJ45 connectors. But, this 100' cable worked nicely and a much better choice.

    Does the work. I have a PS4 and I was tired of the lag experienced through Wi-Fi. After buying countless routers, I decided to just go with a very long cable. It works great and my online gaming experience has improved TENFOLD! I thought it would be an intrusive sight, but I found a path so that it doesn't stand out.

    Cable was long enough and flexible enough

    Bought the cable to run from my router to my new Samsung SUHD TV to guarantee network connection at all times with the highest quality as wifi signals can be very fickle. Ran it with no issues and was surprised how flexible it was to be able to tuck under the carpet around corners without any major pinch.

    I got this 100-foot Ethernet cable because I needed a cable long enough to reach from my router to my network receiver in my room which is at the far end of my house. Not much to say about it because it is just an Ethernet cable, except that it is the length I needed & the quality of the cable seems very good.

    Hubby surprised me with a ps4, we have wifi in the home but the downloads were crazy slow (15hrs) and I did not want to put my ps4 in the living room where the router is. This bad boy did the trick now I'm plugged directly into my router with my ps4 in the bedroom and super fast downloads 2-3 mins tops! Love it!
