I took apart one of the cables that I received to inspect it. As far as I can tell, it meets the ISO spec for CAT6a. Of the three CAT6a standards, ISO's in the most strict. It's worth noting that this is *fully shielded* CAT6a. There are several variations of CAT6a; the more common ones tend to be partially shielded and have an X-shaped barrier separating the twisted pairs. In this variation, each pair is wrapped individually with foil, then all four pairs are wrapped together. This generally yields better protection against cross-talk. There's a catch, though: the metal connectors on each end aren't just for show. They have to be grounded for up-to-spec performance. Otherwise, you just have an overpriced CAT5e cable. This means that you need to have devices that support STP cabling; they need to be grounded and their RJ45 connectors need to have metal around them. If neither of the ends that you are connecting have a metal-housed RJ45 outlet that makes contact with the...
Must agree with the lack of QA. I purchased this to install new high speed cable internet. Installation became a nightmare as no connection to router. Installer confirmed modem was working and connected to their network. He suggested using another connect from modem to router and sure enough my "high quality" cable was the issue. So I went with a replacement just received today. Same issue, two wires not connected at each end on both sets of cables. Good bye Cable Matters.
I have tried many other options to get my whole 1550 sq ft house covered. I have tried wireless, up to AC (the next best), i've tried powerline, i've tried wireless extenders, and access points (AP), and i've tried multiple configurations to get the best access across my whole house. I finally had to just run this gigabit line down to my basement direct from my main router. Obviously, nothing is as fast or consistent as gigabit wired, but I was hoping for a sufficient balance that was found in nothing but was closest in my AC network.
I consistently get about 850 mbps transfers between my server and any devices on this line via an 8 port unmanaged gs108 switch. The best transfers I received prior to this were 585 mbps transfers via my wireless AC line. I was able to get 500 mbps transfers via a powerline adapter, and nothing close to these with other wireless configurations.
In the end I didn't want to drill and run an ethernet line down from my upstairs to...
