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.
As some will know LAN cables aren't all the same even if in the same CAT, so I usually look at AWG and the codes on the cable, these have none. The cable feels solid wire, but the photos look like cable and I don't know the thickness (AWG). So they work, are fairly rigid and the RJ45 is good quality.
I purchased 6 of these to upgrade my home network as Amazon and Netflix 4K kept juddering even though the bandwidth and modem speeds were well over the required specifications. Wow what a difference. No juddering or hesitation at all now. If you have this issue then go for it. The cables are thicker and not as flexible as older cat 5 or Cat 6 cables, however Cat 7 offers more resistance to RF and this is a benefit when you have music servers in the Network mix. I use TP-Link switches and the outputs are tight with these cables but once home then job done as I won’t be unplugging anytime soon. Just note that if you are constantly plugging and unplugging these cables in and out this ‘issue’ could getting a tad annoying. Hope that helps?
I did some research via Google, and the AmazonBasics Cat7 cables seemed to have great reviews all round. All I can say is I agree. They arrived promptly in minimal fully recyclable packaging and appear very well made. As it's Cat7, it's slightly thicker and less bendy or perhaps better described as having more resistance to bending, but that's to be expected with all the internal shielding inside a Cat7 cable. It really shouldn't pose issues for anyone.
I'd recommend, no issues with cable or build quality, and no issues when installed.
Why get a Cat5, Cat5E, Cat6 or Cat6a cable when you can get a quality Cat7 cable at this price ?
I’ve bought various network cables before at various pricing levels but these have impressed me, they are a great price, build quality is great (better than some other brands I’ve used) and more importantly they work as they should.
I’ve had multiple issues with other cables dropping connection, the plastic clip being broken or breaking really easily, it not sitting in the hole snugly etc. So far none of those issues.
