I have had problem with their cable before and the crimper is kind of cheap. This is a really good deal, just remember that you get what you pay for.

I agree with the cheapness of the crimper and that you get what you pay for, but I have not had problems with the cable yet. (Used about 1,000ft) so YMMV.
Still good deal for $20 IMHO.

I know someone here at work that bought this deal from them last year and he ended up with no end of issues with bad cables. Of course it could have been user error, it does take a bit of practice to make good quality cables.

My problems were primarily with interference. I had premade cables and some that I had made myself with good quality cable and had no problems. I made some cables with this stuff and had big time interference issues. I took some of the other cables and put them in the same place and eveything was fine.

Cool! Thanks! I know a friend who is going to get this and I will pass it along.

I too have had problems with their cable. When making short cables up to about 10' or so they would work fine, but anything longer than that will not work. The connections are fine, I think they are interference issues also.

I think the problem is that the twisted pairs arn't as tightly twisted as it should. I've seen when its not twisted at all.
