A bit faster than my CAT5 cable, tangle-free, durable connector. Amazon Affiliate Product Link: http://amzn.to/1o2M9c1
The connectors on this cable are regular RJ45s except that they are gold plated. The clip on the connectors is extended with a flexible piece of plastic that makes it easier to squeeze and remove from a port. This cable is flat vs round which improves the ease of spooling and running the cable. This shape also reduces tangles and twists. When compared to my CAT5 cable, the CAT7 cable was able to acheive 30 Mb/sec downloads versus 25 Mb/sec. Upload speeds were the same at 6 Mb/sec each. The limitation on speed has to do with my service package and network infrastructure, though it’s interesting that the cable was able to get 5Mb/sec more out of my current connection. Overall, the cable works well. It is easier to manage, physically, than my round CAT5 cable and looks neater/cleaner.
