    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.

    Great for short distance Network Cable!

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Great Cord

    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.

    This is one of those products that shouldn't really stand out, it should just do it's job and be forgotten. That's exactly what this cable does. It's a touch smaller in diameter than I expected, which is a nice surprise. Plugged it in and it works. Would buy again.

    Got new computers so we decided to upgrade from a CAT5 to CAT6 and so far they work great! Cord seems really durable for normal use and the clips were very snug (no worries of it wiggling)

    This Insignia™ NS-PNW5506 Cat-5e cable is compatible with 10/100/1000Base-T networks and features snagless 8P8C male-to-male modular connectors that easily connected my PC to my WiFi router. So far, it is working great! There's not much else I can say about it other than it does what it's supposed to do!

    Seems better than lower priced cable- thicker with heavy duty looking connectors at each end. Comes in various lengths but 6 ft is what we needed. Has worked flawlessly since day one, a year ago .

    My prior cable was too short to charge phone and use while in bed. This one allows me to use phone while it is being charged. 6' is a perfect length that is long enough but not too long to get tangled up beside the bed.

    Needed a Ethernet cord for my ps4... Nothing fancy but wasn't sure which to use. I asked for help at best buy and they narrowed my needs to this cat 5e cable... This 6' cord was perfect for my setup and thus far, is working perfectly as I use it to watch my streaming movies and fast game play online.

    This is a good quality cable and just the right length to direct connect my WiFi modem directly into my Toshiba Fire HD TV. Transmission speed resolved the voice delay when streaming movies.
