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 trust AmazonBasics for everything. They always manage to produce the best products for the best price and quality. When it comes to RJ45 cables, many on the shelf that are in the price range as this one are just garbage, the connector just snaps off after a few uses. But this cable made of the highest quality materials and I am certain it will last long. When it comes to Amazon and the products they offer, you just have to buy without any hesitation and thinking too much, simply because they have the best customer service in the planet.
Really good basic network leads. Used quite a few from Amazon basics and not had one fail. They also have better connectors than many hi end brands. So barring the basic colour choice if the leads are going to be viable. I would 100% recommend these leads
Needed a new Ethernet cable as the fiddly bit on one of the plugs on the original router cable broke off (causing me to spend hours trying to determine the cause of our intermittent broadband fault!!). Only wanted a couple of meters, but this seemed to be a good buy, so I got it anyway. In the end, the extra long cable enabled me to tidy all those "bloody boxes with their blinking lights" away on top of the book case, where She Who Can't be Ignored can't see them. So, result all round.
And all for just over a fiver. Maplin, etc - we're laughing at you!
I had a need for a 3-4 meter cable and found that most products on Amazon jumped straight from 2m to 5m. This was the (almost) perfect length, and for a good price as well. I especially like the tag protectors that help with the broken off RJ-45 tags.
As the cable supplied with my router was not long enough to reach my desktop computer from where I wanted to site it I have tried several wi-fi dongles. I've found them frustrating. They would work for a while then, for no obvious reason, they would refuse to connect. It would take lots of messing about and swearing before they would start working again. A longer cable is the more reliable solution. This one seems good value and it works.
I once read that an inexpensive cable will work just as well as an expensive one, this works well for me and I am very happy with its purchase. I like buying via Amazon because of the hassle-free service if things go wrong or items are not satisfactory.
