    Good Quality Cable

    I bought this cable to get internet connectivity from the Charter modem my computer uses, which is located in the basement family room, to my Sony Bravia Smart TV upstairs in the living room. It works great! The transmission quality is excellent, despite having to go 25 feet. I can't Wi-Fi my home as my elderly father lives with me and he has a pacemaker. I must use a "wired" internet connection for all my tech equipment, but "wired Routers" are no longer being sold. I only have one computer and one TV in the house so this cable does the trick.

    I have a gateway that comes from the cable company. This is a great cable to connect ot the hard ethernet ports and get the full 1Gb speed to the printer from the all the wireless devices on the network. In wireless mode, the printer would sometimes pause if someone had a big download going, with the cable it now always prints. The cable is pliable enough to be tucked in by carpet and baseboard and stay in place so it does not drag through the middle of the room. It behaves like it shouls.

    The network cable is a very good, high quality cable for hooking up to the internet. Made of high quality materials and is alot better than ones that your competitors sale. I would recommend this cable to anyone that is looking for a good high quality, long lasting internet cable. If you need one, go to best buy and purchase a quality internet access cable, it will do the job and will last you a very long time. I am very happy with my purchase and would do it all over again, such good cable offered at that stoe, best buy.

    Weak cable

    We moved into a new (100-year old) house and had network/Internet speed issues. We tried many different things to try and figure out the problem, including repositioning the modem, the router, homeplugs, etc. Eventually we needed to add a second router. During the process we tried at least four different brands of cable. Running standard speed tests, these cables made the network considerably slower, by more than 20%! All the other brands were better. We were certainly surprised. The only good news is that it's cheap, so I didn't waste that much money.

    I bought this cable to replace one that was not only outdated, but chewed as well. This cable struck me as the sturdiest in the store, and I liked the clip design. It seemed as though it would last, but wouldn't be impossible to remove. This cable has improved my wireless network speeds (this is used as a patch cable between my modem and router) and provides an overall reliable connection. I also have a 6ft version of this cable, which I also love. This is a great product, and it may even improve your speeds like it did for me.

    Lan cord works great for 4K

    I have two gaming computers and a 4K TV. The bandwidth was being sent automatically to the computers, leaving the TV unclear and slow. We connected the wifi to the TV via this Lan cable and everything works great now. I recommend stringing behind furniture so it is not an eyesore, but the grey cord is MUCH better than the yellow cord. I would recommend this to others if they have either weak wifi or multiple items with high demand for bandwidth.

    I purchased this for installing our router because I didn't want to sit on the floor for the installation. I'm so glad I purchased the 25' because it allowed the IT guy who ended up doing it to sit comfortably on the couch to complete the installation. Then when we moved the router to try to improve the signal strength, the cable was more than sturdy enough to go through the wall to to the router's new location. Great, strong cable. No worries about the connectors coming loose.

    Nice Solid Ethernet Cable for Superfast speeds

    This is a very nice Solid Ethernet Cable for Superfast speeds. I wanted an ethernet cable to compliment my FiOS gigabit internet connection and so this seemed to do the trick. Over WiFi my average speeds were 200 - 300 Mbps , but with the Insignia Cat6 Ethernet I can get well over 900 Mbps upload and download most of the time.

    My son is a gamer and of course like many plays Fortnite. Though we have great internet service he will be playing and the game would often lag, but that would happen with other games he’d play too. I bought this cable to connect to the modem and he said it’s “amazing!” He recommended it to his friends too who are now having issues with their internet.

    Good Price for Cat 6Cable

    I've been gradually redoing all my networking cables in Cat 6 ... Went to Beast Buy as they alway shave quality cables for great prices. The Cat6 seemed well made, very flexible, and had "lock guards" on the locking tab on the plug (cheaper cables have no gards and eventually the tab breaks off). Great selections of lengths. One color - pale gray.

    I did have to return this item and get a replacement as the first one I had did not work. BB was good about honoring the exchange and the current cord has worked without any issues for over a year. It's nice to have a hard wired connection and a long one at that for those times when wifi coverage doesn't provide as good of a connection as what I need.

    CAT 6!

    And you're using a Gigabit router but you're still using CAT 5 cable?Because of its improved transmission performance and superior immunity from external noise, systems operating over category 6 cabling will have fewer errors vs. category 5e for current applications. This means fewer re-transmissions of lost or corrupted data packets under certain conditions, which translates into higher reliability for category 6 networks compared to category 5e networks

    works fine except for the connector

    The cable works fine for hardwiring my internet but unplugging it from my computer takes extra effort as it does not want to release easily without pinching down hard on the connector and wiggling it free, could pose a future problem with connection? on the other hand, it's loose on the back of the modem and I have to keep pushing it back in. I suppose I'll try connecting it in reverse to see if it makes any difference.

    Our cable provider installer said we could only install cable on one side of the apartment. I think he was just lazy. Well , I wanted to hook my computer up to Ethernet instead of wifi ,but the router is all the way across the room. This cable was perfect. I was able to run it through some cord protectors and along the wall to reach my workstation. It works great. ( Works better than our technician I might add)

    I've had no issue with these and they seem to work fantastically. You'd have to speak with someone who has dove more into the statistical performance to know for sure if these perform better to the point of it being enough for the price over the Cat-5 version, but for my worth I've not had any issues and they work great.

    Solved Network Connection Interruptions

    The wireless network connection for a second desktop dropped repeatedly. After trying several remedies with my internet provider (changing signal strength, relocating router, updating software) the problem persisted. The router had 4 internet connection ports, so I purchased the Insignia Cat- 6 Network Cable to connect the second computer to the router. Problem Solved!

    the object works great. it is longer than I need, 25 feet. I should have measured the distance between the box and my chair. ten feet would have worked. i do not know if ten feet was available. I had a hard time getting a clerk to help me, i guess I didnt look like a likely sale. So I waited in the free wifi lounge. such a deal. soft chairs.

    I was trying to solve an HDMI over cat5 video signal issue and upon completion of troubleshooting I found that I needed a longer drop cable to eliminate a couple of connections to allow the weak signal to make it to the display. The Best Buy was close and they had a cable long enough to fill the bill. Routed the cable and hooked it up and its been working fine ever since.

    Bought this cable not knowing the difference between cat 6 and cat 5 but was told it offers faster speed to your device so future proof I guess you can say overall great cable, with a great outer skin and hard to bend, meaning it has nice thick cables inside it and had no speed lost when connected to my 4k tv it actually gave me faster speeds then my basic cat 5 cable. 10/10
