Thin and Strong with Great Snagless Design
By J. Cordes
This is some of the thinnest Cat-6e I've used (a good thing) and I love the new snagless design (though it's not unique to Amazon branded cables) as it's much easier to release from tight spaces.

Be Future Ready With A Cat-6 Ethernet Cable
By benjamin bannister
I have upgraded my home for high-speed data transfers in my wires (Cat-6), and my wireless devices (a/c wireless). These Cat-6 cables are the last of my upgrades, and I hope I won't have to upgrade anything else for years.
This is a black AmazonBasics branded Cat-6 standard Ethernet cable. It is built for high-speed transfers. It is backward compatible with Category 5/5e and Category 3 cables. It is suitable for 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX (Fast Ethernet), 1000BASE-T/1000BASE-TX (Gigabit Ethernet), and 10GBASE-T (10-Gigabit Ethernet). Basically, if you don't speak tech, it is future-ready.
The design of the cable will make it very hard for you to accidentally break the clear tab. The clear tab is what helps secure your cable in place, but it is also the likeliest part to break as people will sometimes yank this cable, or trip on it. This clear tab can easily break on lesser designs, so the addition of the black tab protecting the clear tab helps prevent that from happening at all. (Side thought: I'm so glad AmazonBasics is finally molding their logo into the plastic of the cable versus placing a sticker on it that can easily fall off; much classier)
You can order these in a number of different lengths so you get it just right for you OCD-types (*cough*, me).
I use this cable with my Samsung Curved 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD 3D Smart LED TV so I can stream 4K videos from Amazon and Netflix without any dip in quality. I also use it with my computer so I can get the fastest Internet connection speeds. All of these things are centralized through my Apple Time Capsule, which can accommodate all these incredibly fast speeds.
Time is money when you get older, and I don't like my time wasted—especially by old slow cables. If you wish to be ready for the future, upgrade your Ethernet cables to Cat-6 today. Recommended.

Amazon makes good cables and this is no exception. The construction feels solid and the cable works perfectly. The clip and its cover do not feel cheap and they are easy to pinch to connect and disconnect. This is a great buy for the price.
