A Secure, Reliable Connection
Compared to a wireless network, Ethernet cables provide a wired network for a more secure and reliable Internet connection. Use Ethernet cables to easily connect computers and peripherals to your LAN. Equipped with RJ45 connectors, the AmazonBasics Cat-6 Ethernet patch cable provides universal connectivity for everything from computers, printers, servers, routers, and switch boxes to network media players, network-attached storage devices, VoIP phones, and other standard office equipment.
Exceptional Speed and Reliability
The speed and quality of a wired LAN depends greatly on how fast data is transmitted between computers and network components. The AmazonBasics Cat-6 Ethernet patch cable can transmit data at speeds up to 1,000 Mbps (or to 1 Gigabit per second)—10 times faster than Cat-5 cables (100 Mbps). Whether it’s server applications, cloud computing, or HD video streaming, the AmazonBasics Cat-6 Ethernet patch cable promotes a fast, consistent connection.
The Cat-6 cable also delivers better signal transmission stability than its predecessors, and it provides an impressive 250 MHz bandwidth--more than double the amount compared to Cat-5 or Cat-5e Ethernet patch cables (100 MHz each).
The flexible AmazonBasics Cat-6 Ethernet patch cable features a durable outer PVC jacket for protection and RJ45 connectors with gold plating for accurate data transfer and corrosion-free connectivity.

First, Cat6 cables are really only CERTIFIED at 1 gig (1,000 Mbps), but are able to support up to 10 gig (10,000 Mbps) at lengths 37 meters or less. Cat5e cables are really only CERTIFIED at 100 mbps, but can support up to 1 gig. Notice the use of the word "CERTIFIED" - I think this is where the confusion is regarding cable ratings. I believe this is what the manufacturer ACTUALLY means from their description stated above - that the cable is CERTIFIED at 1 gig, not that its maximum rating is 1 gig. Think of CERTIFIED as "guaranteed". The official spec for Cat5e and Cat6 GUARANTEE 100 Mbps and 1000 Mbps, respectively, but can support more (it's just not guaranteed).
Secondly, the connectors on this cable are not actual Cat6 connectors (see the pictures by other reviewers), but Cat5e connectors. However, the official spec says that the different Cat6 connector is only a RECOMMENDATION, not an actual requirement for a Cat6 cable. Simply put, Cat6 cables have the option to go with Cat6 connectors or can use the Cat5e connectors as long as the cable maintains the rating of a Cat6 cable. So just because it doesn't have the official Cat6 connector, doesn't mean it's not a Cat6 cable. Making a determination by looking at the connectors is not a sure fire way to tell if a cable is Cat6. Reviewers stating it is NOT a Cat6 cable based on the connectors are incorrect. The only way to truly tell if you are getting a Cat6 cable or not is to test with a network tester - something regular home owners don't have and aren't willing to drop another $75 to $300 dollars for. Cable manufacturers are basically on the honor system when it comes to their cables. If you want to feel warm and fuzzy about your cables, then buy from a known and trusted cable provider. Monoprice comes to mind but there are many others.
Thirdly, these cables are thin and while there is no AWG (American Wire Gauge) printed on the cables themselves or listed in the description, I believe these to be 28 AWG. I have numerous 24 AWG at my house and these Amazon Basics cables are clearly thinner. The higher the AWG, the thinner (or, smaller diameter) the wire. So a 24 AWG will feel "thicker" than a 28 AWG. Also, 28 AWG is a ratified spec for a network cable and was designed mostly to conserve space and increase airflow in IT rooms with crowded network racks and cable runs used by businesses with tens, hundreds or thousands of devices that need a wired connection. The regular homeowner doesn't even come close to this. However, 28 AWG has more signal resistance (the longer the wire) because it's thinner so it's recommended to keep 28 AWG wires at a length of 15 meters (roughly 50 feet) or less. Again, most homeowners probably don't have this issue and shouldn't worry about it.
So, with all that being said above I ultimately returned these cables and here's why: I don't like it when I don't have that warm fuzzy about something I buy. I THINK these are Cat6 28 AWG network cables but I'm not absolutely sure. If the manufacture had listed more DETAILED specs and had a more clear description then maybe I would have kept these. Also, almost all of the network cables I buy have the the AWG listed on the cable itself along with the Cat type and some other details. These cables only have "Cat 6 Cable" listed on it. That's it. Nothing else. So if I'm trying to determine the gauge of a wire I need to know the differences between the types of AWG - something most regular people don't know and which I had to do to write this review. I'm a stickler for accuracy and being CLEAR about communicating your product. I should have read the other reviewers BEFORE I pulled the trigger on these. Instead, I got wowed by the price and didn't due my due diligence.
Will these work for you? Absolutely. Before I sent these back they were working for me. Most homeowners won't even need to worry about going over 1 gig speeds so whether this is a Cat6 cable or actually a Cat5e, most won't even know the difference. But I'm OCD about this stuff so don't let my review necessarily dissuade you from buying these. Use it as guide to become better informed and to be able to discern between reviews that are accurate and reviews that are CLEARLY misinformed because they don't have all the information about cabling specs and are just shooting from the hip.
I was able to connect it to my switch just fine, but the device on the other end wouldn't connect. I was able to take an exacto knife to the cover and strip back enough of the cover to make it work (see photo).
Other reviews indicate the same issue. Annoying.
With Amazon being a leader of data centers, you would thing they would design the perfect network cable, unfortunately there is an annoying design flaw.
The jacks are surrounded by a thick rubber which makes it hard to squeeze them into tight spaces. You can force them, but they start to lean and I was concerned that this would damage the ports on my router.
The fix is pretty simple, luckily the material is rubber and not hard plastic. I took a sharp knife and was able to whittle away the excess rubber.
Now my custom modified cables fit as they should.
Check out my images, the 4 cables on the switch are modified, the one cable at the end is untouched because I had enough room there that it didn't matter.
but you can see the difference.
I hope that Amazon addresses this issue as it's a great product otherwise.
I purchased this cable as a replacement for a shorter cable. The longer cable was used in a hard-to reach situation where I had to previously place an Apple TV under a TV cabinet. Not ideal, which is why this cable came to the rescue. It seems durable, but it's also flexible as well.
Highly recommended to get your ethernet cables here and not at a big box retailer!

Le câble est expédié dans une boite carton donc il est arrivé en parfait état.
Très bon rapport qualité/prix pour ce câble RJ45 Cat 6, je n’ai jamais été déçu avec les câbles Amazon Basics.
Si cet avis vous à été utile, merci de cliquer sur Oui en dessous.
Trasmissione stabile grazie alla banda larga di 250 MHz: più del doppio rispetto ai cavi di Cat-5 (100 MHz).
È di tipo universale e all'esterno è protetto da PVC che garantisce robustezza.
Ho comprato quello da 15 metri perchè ho il modem in una stanza e il mac nell'altra. Ora finalmente la mia linea è più veloce: con Wifi andavo a 90mb/s ora con connessione tramite cavo LAN vado a 130 mb/s. Anche il prezzo è competitivo (15 euro), rimango sempre soddisfatta dei prodotti Amazon Basic.
Cuando el paquete llegó, mi hijo estaba en la escuela, así que me decidí a instalarlo para sorprenderlo a su llegada, y desde que este cable está en uso, el problema del "lag" desapareció ... en total en casa tenemos 11 dispositivos que utilizan internet y desde entonces con la combinación del paquete mayor de internet y este cable, no hay queja del internet por parte de algún miembro de la familia.
Sugerencias para satisfacer al cliente:
Sería genial que en la compra de este cable (según la medida del comprador) se incluyera un paquete de grapas para fijarlo en la pared.
De haber estado disponible el color blanco lo hubiera escogido; ya que los interiores de casa son color blanco, y desde luego que el color negro de este cable resalta notablemente.
Sería ideal que las medidas fueran por cada 5 metros, yo necesitaba 10 metros y este cable se ofrece en medida de 15. Me sobraron 5, pero ya está ordenado a modo de no verse el sobrante.
En general, un muy buen producto entre precio y calidad, que ofrece estabilidad para la trasmisión de datos vía internet, y amazon como siempre; un excelente servicio ... la entrega en tiempo, forma y un impecable paquete.
Das führt dazu das wenn man mehr als 2 solcher Kabel Nebeneinander in einen Switch oder Netzwerkkarte steckt, das dritte nicht mehr daneben passen wird aufgrund der Breite der schwarzen Umhüllung des Kabelsteckers.
They're well-built, look quite sturdy, and perform well. My only reservation is that the actual RJ45 transparent connector is partially covered in a rubbery shroud - as, indeed, are many types of Ethernet cable from other manufacturers. I bought four of these, all of which were to be plugged into my Virgin Media SuperHub 3 broadband router. Maybe the problem arises because the Ethernet ports on the router are a bit too close together, but what I found is that the (fairly thick) rubbery shroud makes it a tight fit to get the cables to plug into adjacent ports - to the extent that it was difficult to get the connector to lock into place. I'd prefer to use a cable that wasn't such a tight fit.
Have used Amazon HDMI cables and found them to be fantastic value and these cables were no different, they are packaged in cardboard with no single use plastics which is great to see.
They are sturdy, well made, have a great locking tab and do the job perfectly, for the price they are amazing.
After cutting away some of the plastic they work OK - not particularly high quality cables but they work once they stay in the sockets.
There is nothing worse than trying to watch a film/episode and the connection keeps buffering and dropping out. Don't suffer any longer - give these a go. I only paid £16.48 in total for the 2 items and can now watch with ease. :)
The Nighthawk is reporting back that I'm getting the full bandwidth that VirginMedia is selling me, so the Cat6 cable is money well spent. :)
Ich verwende dieses Kabel um meine Playstation, meinen Fernseher, meinen Computer, eigentlich alles in meinem Haus mit dem Router zu verbinden.
- Übertragungsrate ist gut, wie gesagt ich benutze es an jedem Gerät ohne Leistungsverluste
- nach über einem Jahr Benutzung immer noch sehr gut
- Stecker hält nach wie vor
- kein Wackelkontakt, Kabelbruch oder Ähnliches
- Insgesamt sehr gut!
