Sick of your wireless dropping out?
I can't relate in words the magniture of the sigh I gave in relief when I finally gave up on my flaky wireless internet and ran a 5m Cat6 cable over to the couch. Now I can enjoy re-runs of Whose Line and webisodes of Heroes without the fits and starts of a buffer under-run! I mean; nothing ruins a well-timed joke or tirlling suspense like a long pause!
Cat6 was the only choice for me, too. I had some Cat5 laying around, but it has suffered a beating from one or more ugly sticks and it wasn't fit to be seen by guests. So Cat6 took the chequered flag thanks to its stylish black pvc coating. What's more, I'm also getting the benefit of better signal quality; because I have to run it behind a cabinet along with some extension cords and power leads, electro magnetic interference is a concern, and it can be just as annoying as a wi-fi deadzone. Lastly, I know that when the network speeds on LANs and the internet increase, my little Cat6 cable will still be up to the task of 10gbps.
This is exactly what you need for temporary or permanent installations where you need a high quality cable you can depend on. Or, if you want a black cable, that's cool too. Since it's backwards compatible with Cat5, you're more than welcome to buy it because it looks pretty... ;-)

Product Review by Terry,
Hi Cable Chick, Why do I not think that's your real name? Anyway, my latest order was delivered the next day, which is what I've come to expect from you. The 8 socket power board is very good: very robust construction, indicator lights and plenty of space to plug in carpet carbuncles without sacrificing an outlet. The Cat6 cable is now connecting my printer to the network: no problems there.
If you keep up with the low prices and the excellent customer service, I'm just going to have to keep coming back for my cabling and associated needs.
