Go with cat6 and shielded, it will block interference from other devices/power wires

Cat5e is more than enough for a security camera and can be run up to 100m (328ft). You also probably don't need to worry about shielded unless you are securing an industrial site. I would however get copper wire, not CCA. You might be fine with CCA, but I wouldn't risk it.

This is totally not true... Cat5e is rated to do gigbait up to 100 meters, which is 328 feet. This thing is only 100 feet.

You are talking pure copper cat5e, this is CCA. It might work just fine, however I would not risk it

It's still rated for cat5e. Either they are lying in which case you return it for free because "product is not as described" or it will work in which case who cares if it is CCA. Again, this is only using 1/3 of the potential gigabit run of a cat5e cable so it's well within reason to believe that it can do it.

My two cents: Avoid CCA network cables, especially for long distances.

The Dangers of Using CCA Cables

The performance and safety of CCA cables are radically different. In fact, aluminum network cables violate TIA and IEC standards for Cat5e and Cat6 cables.

Aluminum patch cables, often marked as CCA or CCE (for Copper Clad Ethernet), has higher attenuation than pure copper cables. This results in a greater loss of data, as packets have to be re-transmitted. The more data that is re-transmitted, the slower your network performs. Plus, these problems are compounded by every foot of cable you use; the longer the cable, the worse the performance. Is the hit in network performance worth saving a few cents?

CCA cables also have a 55% higher DC resistance. This increases the amount of energy that is transferred into heat and reduces the amount of power that can be transferred. This issue makes them unusable for power over Ethernet (PoE).

--Source: http://blog.showmecables.com/copp...er-cables/

What are the Concerns?

First of all, CCA cables have poor flexibility that can cause breakage. In a recent article by the Communications Cable & Connectivity Association (CCCA), of which Belden is a participating member, one IT coordinator for a small K-12 elementary school recounted his experience with CCA cable.

After he noticed that the conductors seemed brittle during termination, initial testing revealed a 30% failure on links due to lack of continuity from breakage. He then realized that simply moving a patch panel or faceplate caused more conductors to break and more failures.

And even if CCA conductors do make it through termination and pass testing, aluminum oxidizes when exposed to air. Over time, this can eventually cause failed terminations and the need for troubleshooting.

Another issue with CCA is its higher dc resistance compared to copper (about 55% greater), which doesn't bode well for PoE applications. Greater dc resistance causes greater heating of the cable and reduced power available at the PoE device. As we move to higher power PoE Plus applications, dc resistance will become an even greater concern.

Will this work with PS4 White edition, I can't see any specific models that it works with, only PS4 in general?

Honestly, it should work on any model of the PS4

I've used the cheapest of the cheap Cat5E cables in a prior installation, and never experienced any network speed issues. Speedtests routinely reported 125megabit down, and 5 megabit up, which is what my internet connection maxes out at. Granted, if you are looking for full gigabit connectivity for transferring files across a local network from machine to machine, they may not get full 1000 megabit speed - but if you aren't doing that, who cares?
