Round Cable usually have the wire twisted to prevent interference. How is the flat cable addresses this?

While cat5e will suffice, you might as well run cat6, the price difference is insignificant. Cat6 is generally a bit thicker. I wouldn't worry too much about uv effects on cable.i have several outdoor runs that must be 10 years old where i used quality cat5e with zero issues. If you are looking to future proof your install, you could use cat6, but if your cable runs are more than 165 feet, you might as well use cat5e because you will be subject to the same bandwidth. If you are looking to go even further into future proofing, you can look into cat6A which is capable of 10,000 Mbps past 165 feet.

I do not have this cable.

However, the unshielded flat cable will be prone to interference if ran along the noise source, AC wiring.
This type of cable would be OK for a short cable on your desk, but 100' cable is obviously intended for more permanent duty, I would not recommend using it.
Also there is a review from someone who tried to re-crimp it... read it. https://www.amazon.com/gp/custome...B017R12KF2

This cable is long for the money and will probably work fine for most people's applications but obviously it's not truly Cat6. Without twisting the pairs of wires it won't meet Cat6 crosstalk specs.

The Chinese make stuff cheap and that's great and all, but YSK they have no qualms about labeling products with specs inappropriately. And Amazon doesn't care, as long as people buy them and they mostly work.

If this angers you, buy the stuff and demand a refund for not meeting specs. You might get to keep it for nothing or at worst you send it back at their cost.

I take that review with a grain of salt, a "regular" RJ45 crimp end is designed for round cable, not flat cable, I've crimped enough of them to know. A cable like this is obviously NOT designed to be re-crimped and that guy should have just coiled it up and left well enough alone.

Untwisted pairs wont meet cat5 let alone cat3 specs.

Looks like more junk cable that keeps getting on the front page and uneducated buyers keep buying this crap.

Untwisted pairs in a cable will cause massive problems for ethernet.

Well hate to break it to you but if the stuff didn't work it wouldn't have thousands of reviews, mostly positive. I've purchased this cable from 2 or 3 different Chinese resellers under various trade names and it's been great. It looks nice, easy to secure, and the speed is equal to the ugly twisting knotting round that it has replaced. There are some applications where I still use good old round like POE but otherwise, this stuff is great. Keep in mind it's all about use case and application; i'm not running this stuff in-wall or anything like that. In such case, you would use the round cable properly shielded. no one cares when it's buried in the walls.

The spurious arguments over labeling and CAT5/5E/6/7 are just that, spurious. No one is running 10GbE in their homes and won't be for a very long time. By then you'll want fiber and be done with it. This stuff will run full gigabit no problems and a lot of people aren't even utilizing that or anywhere close to it. Again, use case, not theoreticals.

So can you repair this if the clips on the ends break?

Seems like you cannot crimp these flat cables, per reviews.

Or, you need some special crimper, for flat cables? Or, special RJ45 ends for this flat cable, and the wires inside?

Well, per a Q and A:

Question: Can you crimp this cable?

Answer: I normally buy flat cable and crimp myself because it's nicer. Absolutely do NOT recommend doing that with this product. The wires inside the cable are so insanely small that it makes it extremely difficult to sleeve it into the slots of the rj45 connector. Not to mention the cable itself is significantly thinner than most other flat cables, meaning it the sleeving doesn't even catch on rj45 connectors when you crimp as well. 0/5 do not recommend for custom lengths/crimping. see less
