To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I didn't read the specifications closely when I ordered these, but they're fine for what I need them to do. These are flat, good quality and nice looking cables, but if you want to "future proof" or need 10 GIGABIT connections, this cable IS NOT for you. If you're just plugging in a router or access point into existing older infrastructure that run at 1 Gigabit connections, then this is fine. Another reviewer's testing shows that this is limited to around 1 Gbps.
Round vs flat: quick search will tell you that for the same category, round cables have better shielding to EMI and are more durable and reliable. Flat cables are lighter weight and fit better in certain applications. On Amazon at the time of writing this, a Cat 6 Round cable at a similar price will give you 10 Gbps.
Their own description "HIGH SPEED - Cat6 cable with high bandwidth of up to 250 MHz and 1Gbps ensure high-speed data transfer for server applications, cloud storage, online HD video streaming and gaming"
These are no better than Cat5e if you're looking for speed or data transmission, BUT it should offer better crosstalk protection and bandwidth at 250 Mhz vs 100 Mhz.
Choose carefully for the application you need these for.
Decent cables, no major issues. However, I've already had 2 die out on me. These are good if you plug em in and not remove them. I wanted these to be able to plug/unplug often. Now I can't return/replace them... Weak warranty.
