    I have purchased many Insignia products over the years from Best Buy. I find the quality and dependability to be very good for the price. I bought this cable so I could direct connect the "Roku - Ultra Streaming Media Player - Black" to my internet router when I discovered that was an option vs. WIFI. It works great and haven't had any problems. My only complaint is that when I went to the store to buy the cable my choice were 2Ft., 6Ft., 25Ft., or 100Ft. lengths. A 12 Ft. was all I needed. It was strange that they didn't carry that length. I suppose that they might have that length on line, but I wanted to install the Roku now and didn't want to wait for days to receive it in the mail if they even carried that length.

    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.

    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.

    You need a cable like this in your life! I thought I was just buying some plain old cable, boy was I wrong. The instant I plugged it in, it was as if a chorus of angels began singing from the heavens above. The clouds separated and sunshine filled every corner of my home. Birds chirping, children laughing, and a refreshing breeze blowing through the leaves, delivering a nostalgic scent of yesteryear, and a renewed sense of confidence. Oh yeah, and now I'm connected to the Internet too...

    Used for Xbox360

    When everyone is home this cable is great for plugging right into my router and keeping my xbox up to speed when playing a multiplayer game, Hulu, or Netflix. It is long enough I can put the Xbox in the next room as well when more people want to play! They make a cat6 cable but there is no point in paying more as the Xbox won't transmit data that fast, that is why I bought the 5e cable.

    A good no-frills CAT5e cable

    I needed a longer cable to run from my switch to my wife's PC and found that this 25' option fit the bill perfectly. It's not expensive and works. But with a digital signal, it either works or it doesn't so there really isn't much to review here. It worked, was the right length, and CAT5e UTP was the correct speed for my Gigabit network. There are no included extras but the snagless connectors are a welcome addition over bargain basement or do-it-yourself cables.

    My wife told me to get an Ether-Net cable on my trip to Best Buy. This is the only Brand they had on the shelf, so I picked it up. She seems to be happy with it (I haven't heard any complaints). I've heard complaints about some Insignia products, but hopefully, this cable will continue to be satisfactory. I do not know much about cables like this, but at this point I guess I can recommend it. Time will tell...

    Return policy sucks

    Tried to return 17 days after purchasing, told no. They both were unopened. $40 down the drain. I bought them for my wife who is a teacher bc teachers often have to buy their own supplies. Thankfully, she was able to find what she needed at school. Unfortunately, for us we are stuck with cables we dont need and must pay for them. I'll spend my money at Frys next time.

    I was dubious about buy a premade cable from a box store, but man, was I impressed. After unwinding the meticulous coil and plugging one end into a network switch and the other end into a laptop, I was amazed. The lights, the blinks, the dazzle of the leds indicating a connection was made. Get this. Your love life will improve.

    Had a work laptop that was having issues connectiong to our new home wireless network. Unfortunately, do not have 'admin' access to change computer settings so thought we would see if a hard wire connection would work since router was close to desk and this fit the bill. Still don't know what the problem with the computer is (every other device in the house was able to connect with no problem) but it's nice to have a backup, if needed.

    What can be said about an ethernet cable that hasn't already been said before? I've experienced nothing but great data transfer rates with this cable and installation was a breeze! It was literally plug and play right after I unpackaged it. I recommend this cable to anyone who's in the market to purchase a ethernet cable.

    Little expensive, but high quality

    While this is more expensive than a cable you can buy somewhere else. It is very good quality and I trust the pins wont break on me. One thing; I'm surprised the website doesn't show is that the cable can go faster than the "100Base-T" advertised. Cat5-e can actually do 10G Base-T (kind of like 10000Base-T) if you run the cable less than 45 meters.

    A little pricey

    Even though it is Insignia, I find it a little pricey for them. Yes, the cable is good quality and works great, but you could get a cable double this size on Monoprice for the cost of this cable. But, it is more convenient to go into Best Buy, instead of waiting for the cable from Monoprice.

    I bought this cable cord because I needed it for my ps4 slim signal it was failing without it because my wifi is in the living room where as I use my system in my bedroom which is a long distance. With the cord I was able to connect nD have a great connection... But I ultimately end up taking it back because the cord was in the walk way. Wireless routers are better lol

    Great Cord to make it across the room

    I needed to extend a wired connection from across the room. I need high internet speeds and no loss of connectivity which could not be wirelessly guaranteed by my current provider. I could always be connected and always have high speed connectivity if I was hard wired into the system. This allowed me to do that and hide the cord under baseboards, and then an area rug. Works great!

    I purchased this to connect a second router to my primary one for my work computer tower and IP office phone which is positioned on the opposite end of the room where I have my home office. I wasn’t confident on the length since I forgot to measure before I came to the store but it turned out to be more than enough. I’m happy with my choice.

    Okay, the grey color is a little bland and Cat 5e isn't the fastest thing around. But like everyone knows, a 25 foot cable is twice as fast as a 50 foot one cause it has half as far to go.*** *** Not true at all, but thank you for reading my review.

    I recently moved my computer to the other side of the room. Unfortunately the cable I had was way too short. To my surprise, this longer cable worked in the exact same manner that the shorter one did. I was skeptical at first, but in the end I’m glad I pulled the trigger and purchased this wonderful marvel of modern technology.

    I needed a longer router cable when I moved the router to a new room and this cable was the perfect length for that. Full strength signal being sent with no dropout or slow down, etc. I am happy with the cable brand and type..............
