    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.

    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.

    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 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

    I really only needed about 4 ft and this 6 ft proved to be to long, ended up returning and making my own patch cables but these are great for those who don't want to mess with making their own and are less picky than I about cables hanging

    A replacement cable

    I lost my internet connection when my old cable got a broken prong and would not stay in its slot. (Sorry, not a techie, its USB port??). This replacement needs to be pushed in all the time, or I lose my internet connection. I gave it 4 stars since it works but I feel it could have a more snug fit.

    Cable is rugged, with an insulated clip

    I purchased this cable with my wireless Belden router, which had a cable included for the modem. This cable will be used to run from the router to a principal (network control) laptop. The cable has a rugged insulation and has an insulating cover over the locking tab at the connector.

    I bought the Insignia™ - 6' Cat-5e Network Cable - Gray to use with my new TCL Roku TV because there was not a large selection at Best Buy, but really, I'm not that picky as long as it gets the job done well. And it does.

    Just your basic ethernet cord

    I needed an ethernet cord so I went to Best Buy and bought one. It works perfectly, but is quite expensive compared to the other ones online. If I didn't need it right away, I probably would not have bought one from the store.

    Met my needs but could have been shorter

    Because I'm connecting a modem and DIRECTV box for an internet connect, it did meet my needs. I only wish a shorter version was available like 3 feet. 6 feet is too long for this application.

    The cable appears to be sturdy and well built, although I would not say heavy duty. As long as not exposed to abuse I am sure it will work well. My experience with this brand has been positive.

    I needed a cable while we were travelling so I stopped and bought the cable. There wasn't a lot of choices or price range. It works and appears to be a quality cable.

    I purchased this and it works fine for my needs but would have worked a little better if I spent a few more dollars for a longer one. Just a recommendation to give yourself some slack on you cable!

    Can't believe how expensive these are. It's just a patch cord. Ended up returning it because I didn't need it. Best bang for your buck though.

    Needed some short cables and this fit the bill. There were other options with better cost-performance, but I needed a lot of them and the local store had plenty of these in stock.

    It's a good cable and the no snag connectors can be handy even if they do add bulk. I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 because it is still overpriced. Not as bad as other manufacturers but still.

    I am using these cables for a home theater system, allowing streaming movies and music thru my projector. The length is 25' and there is no detectable issues with video or sound thru these cables.

    I bought this so my Smart TV wouldn't bog down my internet while streaming shows. My internet connection throughout my house is much better now after plugging the TV directly to the router.
