    It was necessary

    Worked great! I really wish that one of the attendants there would have made me aware of that I would need to discord when I purchased the PS4 consul originally when I first entered the store a week I really wish that one of the attendance there would have made me aware that I would need to discord when I purchased the PS4 consul originally when I first entered the store a week ago prior. So after arriving home setting up my console and then finding out that this was what I required to be able to fully play my gaming system that same night, I was very irritated. But yes this was necessary for my PS4 to work

    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.

    They Do The Job

    I'd give a 5-star rating if their price was CHEAPER. "Comparable" cables can be purchased for MUCH LESS at other Electronic Shops (i.e., "Fry's Electronics") or online. However, seeing as I needed the cables Right Away (they were purchased with the Netgear switch reviewed elsewhere), I had to Take What I Could Get. Otherwise, these cables are functional, they Do The Job, and they're constructed well. Again, if you need a CAT5e cable "right away", and Best Buy is your closest source, then it's a decent buy.

    This longer cable was just what I needed.

    Bought a new router but the provided cable in its box was too short. I like to hardwire my printer to the network router. This cable at 6 feet long was just what I needed to get the job done. The only reason I put four stars is because the Insignia (Best Buy) brand is usually not as sturdy as big brand names. But the cable will pretty much be parked behind the printer along the back of my desk to the router and not be handled much so it should work out well.

    Insignia Cat 5 Ethernet Cable

    This is probably the third Ethernet Cable that I have needed to purchase in the last 12 months. I probably have to connect/disconnect the Ethernet cable about once per week, to move my laptop between multiple offices. The main weakness in these cables are the plastic tab. When they are used fairly frequently along with Denver's dry air, they seem to crack off quicker than I would like. I wish they had any easy way just to replace the ends of the cable.

    I am not a computer pro, being an octogenarian. Installation ond use, not easy for me. And Dell, though helped by phone, was not that good. All explaining is guided towards experienced users, andnovices like me are neglected At[purchase, sales personnel no great help, even explaining the warranty etc.

    Bought this cable to connect my TV directly to my internet router. It's fast, efficient, affordable and does the job! chose the shorter cable since distance between my TV to the router is about 4 feet. Needed to put allowance just to be sure! I would recommend this item!

    This newer cable did the trick. I was going to use a 6 but a tech told me between the 5e and the 6 was barely noticeable. This cable gives me 3 times the download speed when I am close enough to my modem to use a cable. Tried it just for kicks and it was really fast!

    Unfortunately I did have to return this item. Not because of anything other than I didn't have the use for it, like I originally I thought . I have purchased this product but a longer one from Best Buy. The 25 foot version of this product and it excels at rapid speeds, I love the fact that it's offered at the length in which I purchased.

    It's handy to have when traveling and staying in motels that have slow connectivity. While buying an online equivalent comes with a better price point, purchasing from Best Buy comes with peace of mind. The product has not been in service long enough to warrant an "Excellent" rating yet.

    I needed an ethernet cable to use with my Samsung SmartTV (also purchased from Best Buy...cuz I love this place) and this one was just perfect. I had a $5 reward from Best Buy so I ended up paying around 5 bucks for it and it has been working like a charm. I can watch Netflix and Hulu Plus without having to depend on a weak signal from the wifi.

    I purchased this to connect my Modem to my Smart TV. At least once a day I drop the wired connections, all the connections are installed well, the TV is brand new, and the previous cable worked without issue. Its only a small blip so I haven't replaced it, but it is annoying.

    One of the clips on our old connective cable broke off and we knew we could find a replacement cable at BestBuy. Although it was not an identical replacement (new one is a couple of feet longer), it works fine and does the trick! Thanks, BestBuy!

    Just got a new computer at Best Buy and was having problems connecting to the internet. Brought the computer to Geek Squad after a week and nothing was wrong with it. I was told that having a desktop situated right next to the modem was the issue [who knew?] and could be remedied with an ethernet cable. Worked like a charm.

    i need to test networks all the time, and occasionally find myself out of ethernet cables.. i buy these all the time in a pinch. a nice feature is the plastic clip is covered by the grey hood, so it makes it both easier to remove, as well as less prone to bending and breaking the clip on the cables crimped jack

    CAT 5 cable for my TV viewing

    My router is upstairs and TV downstairs. Too far for the receiver to get the signal. So, I figured if I can bring the signal to just above the TV room, I should be able to view the TV. I neede a 20 ~30 ft Cat-5 cable. And it worked.

    I have a Samsung s7 phone so other than not having the capability of making phone calls, it operates pretty much the same as my phone, only with a bigger screen. It's relatively lightweight so I can take it anywhere without it being bulky AND the battery charge lasts a long time.

    Needed this cord in a pinch because my WIFI was not connecting to my Dish receiver according to DISH Tech Support. Well, the cord worked great but my problem wasn't with my WIFI set up, the problem was and is with DISH. As it turned out, I now have faster downloads with the cord vs the WIFI downloads.
