    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 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.

    I purchased these because I was in a pinch and needed them. They work fine (no complaints there) but the price was excessive.

    Being impatient and wanting to pick up some cables these are doing the job fine and seem to be sturdy enough that they could be used in situations where they are connected and disconnected on a regular basis.

    Nothing wrong with the cable. It works fine -- but it is pricey. If I hadn't been in such a hurry, would have shopped around more.

    This is a simple component needed for the wiring of my home theater system. It either works or it doesn't. It works! Price reasonable, service of sales person fine.

    Needed a LAN cable to connect to my hotel's high-speed internet port. Dropped by Best Buy, compared perceived quality & price parameters. This won out.

    When I asked the clerk if he could test the cable I brought in to see if it were defective he mumbled something which added up to 'no'.

      Hi there! I'm really sorry to read that your cable is not working as expected. Please remember that you have a one year manufacturer's warranty with it and you can apply it by taking the item to your closest Best Buy store with your receipt and referring directly to the Geek Squad counter. -Elsa A.

    Works well, too short

    I understand that when I bought it it might be too short, however, I don't think it's really 6 feet long. I feels like it reaches 3 feet.

    It works, as far as I can tell. The length is perfect. The other one I had was way too long, which may have been causing problems.

    Cat5 cables are a little outdated I think. Cat6's are way better and I even think there are cat7's now.

    Overpriced network cable that you can get from Amazon for cheaper. Cable is cable!

    Its just a CAT5 cable. I was originally looking for a CAT6E but Best Buy did not have one available.
