I run a somewhat extensive home network, with a multitude of servers, entertainment gadgets, network storage devices, and a plethora of computers. In the past I have always rushed out and bought varying lengths of cable whenever I needed to add a new device into the existing network. That all changed when I upgraded to gigabit. Since I had all older cables, I knew that they wouldn’t be able to handle the increase in network traffic that I would be throwing at them, so I decided to upgrade to CAT6 cabling while I was at it. The RCA TPH634 100-foot roll of CAT6 network cable fit the bill perfectly.

Although longer runs are possible, anything over 100 feet usually results in signal degradation, so these rolls were perfect. I could get the distances I needed to run the network, without having to worry about patching in a ton of smaller cables, switches, and hubs. This meant that I could set my network up however I wanted, and cable length would not be an issue.
The quality of the cable is great. I use multiple rolls in my existing network, and have never had a single issue with signal degradation. My only complaint is that the cable tends to kink, due to being rolled. But all things considered, it is the perfect solution for home networking needs.
