Cablemonsta has a 40% off coupon off their white 50' ethernet cable. Under the price there's a link that says "buy 1, get 40% off". Put your mouse over the link and click "redeem" at the bottom of the popup box for the coupon. Coupon is only good for one use but you can buy a few in one purchase (I bought 2 for $12).

Edit: 100ft cable is $10 (after a 38% coupon)

Not sure what you're doing but I got a result of B. Plus just reading a few of the reviews it's pretty obvious most aren't fake. Also, it's Amazon. If ANYTHING is wrong they'll take it back no problems. There's really no risk here except maybe time.

There's some arguments about them being more expensive to make well due to the nature of Ethernet cables in general. Some people will say they aren't shielded as well because they're not twisted pair, which depending on the cable can be true, so for equal quality it costs more to make them flat. Also most cable is round so it's a specialty thing, therefore more expensive.

For long runs like this, personally I think you're paying a premium for flat because they hide better. I wouldn't recommend using these inside walls but you can. When used in visible areas they fit better under carpet edge, and along walls. I'm going to use one to mount a wireless router on the ceiling so a long, flat, white cable will be less visible.

Good deal, better price than the unnecessary Cat7 cables.

Out of curiosity, why are flat cables usually so much more expensive than round?

Of course, 2 days after I bought one. Repped anyway, I bought 50 ft for $8, and that was during a flash sale. So this is a better price

I literally bought the hundred footer a week ago. It arrived last Friday. Any way I can get some of that money back?

(Cable quality is fine, to be a bit more on topic.)

Interesting 100' version has 'F' but 50' version has FakeSpot 'B'
