    Works Fine 5MP Addition with Bonus Splicer

    I am perfectly happy with this cable, even though it is just a cable. This is a 100 ft Swann two wire cable (not the lower grade single cable offered by others), and same style as the original 60 ft cables that came with my system. I needed an extra 40 feet to reach the garage, and this worked perfectly, plus was in stock at my local store for immediate pickup. As a bonus, the cable includes a spare splicer that I was able to use to connect two of the original 60 ft cables together, to make a 120 ft cable. This splicer saved me having to buy another 100 ft cable. The single wire cables sold by others might be cheaper, but I read where having the power intertwined in the same side as the video can cause interference, so felt with my higher resolution 5MP system, it was worth the extra $10 to buy this Swann cable to avoid the problem. The result is for the 100-120 ft, there is no interference nor dropouts. The cable color is more beige, than the original white cables.

    A normal 100' BNC cable with an included coupler for extending an existing cable. However the cable that is shown on the box is not the cable that is included in the package. The only key difference is the insulation gauge of the wire. This doesn't effect the over all quality of the product as its mostly a cosmetic change. Cosmetic bait and switch is worth 1 star however.

    Not a bad cable

    I recently purchased a Swann 8 channel DVR system for our new house. We have a long garage, so getting cameras to the far end from the attic was beyond what the included cable could manage. I saw a few third party cables for cheaper, but reviews were mixed. If a camera went down because I saved a few bucks on a cable and it missed a crime, what point is there? The cable is the same quality as the cameras come with, and even includes a bnc joiner for use as an extension.

    I just bought a Swann Security Camera package 5mp It came with 60ft cords but I need to run some longer runs so I purchased Swann's 100ft cords. They are a little on the expensive side, but these cables are double shielded and weather protected, at 100ft it is probably worth the double shielding because the last thing you want is interference causing your picture to be not at 100%

    Well, there I was, in the middle of installing new security cameras and lo and behold, I did not have enough camera cable. I was flummoxed, I knew there was only one place to go. Best Buy. I ran into the store, out of breath and I asked the friendly clerk "where is your camera cable?" He pointed me in the right direction and I dashed willy-nilly to that section! Lo and behold, there it was, a 100-foot camera cable.

    Works As Advertised

    I installed the Swann Security Camera system for a friend's store. This cable allowed us to install cameras in the rear of the store and in the outside rear area. Three days later, someone broke into the store in the rear. The cable was able to transmit a very clear image and the police were not only able to identify the thieves, they were able to recover the stolen merchandise.

    Swann 100 Ft.

    Great price and the clarity is very good as well. We needed over the 60ft. length for some of our cameras for our Swann 8 camera system, so we bought these. As others have mentioned, you also get a splicer in each 100ft. box, so you can then turn two of your 60ft. into one 120ft. as well.

    Wire is perfect to extend those short cables

    The wire is perfect to extend out those short cables that come with most camera kits, but I hated the selection at my best by cause I really only needed another 15ft and had to buy 100ft of cable, but other than that cable works great.

    It's a cable

    It's a cable and it works so not much to say. The cables that come with the cameras are 60' so if you need anything longer you will have to buy this one. Comes with an adapter so that you can add this 100' to the 60' or you can use it alone.

    Great for long distances. You can connect to a standard length cable of 50 to give you at least 150 ft of cord. Haven’t tried to connect more.

    Served the purpose and was made by same company that made my system. Good length and good to extend cable runs. Good signal with longer runs too.

    It is a spool of wire.

    It is a spool of wire that is necessary in order to reach further than the wire provided with the cameras. A proprietary piece of wire. Of course, you MUST buy 100 feet even if you only need 20 additional feet.

    I was helping my employer set up cameras for his business. This cable was perfect for adding more feet to reach the extra length to set up.

    I prefer hard wire for security cameras , so when a red squirrel bit through mine I had to replace it with an OEM cable . No worries , excellent quality

    We bought this for our camera system because it had the same company name on it as our camera system. It's cable and it worked. Maybe other cable brands would have worked that are cheaper.

    I am so glad they provide this length for this wire. Otherwise I would not be able to reach the other end of my house to place my camera.

    this cable is nothing fancy, works fine but i found it to be a little more expensive than anticipated. I wonder of other options might be available?

    Used these for one of my customers. Camera located on opposite end of house, customer only purchased 60' cables with system. This cable was thicker and more durable than most.

    I purchased two of these 100’ cables with a Swann 4 camera system. The system came with 4 cable runs, but I needed extra length on two of the runs. These two cables worked just fine.

    I bought 2 of these to extend to locations that the 60' that come with the cameras wouldn't reach. They worked flawlessly.
