Sure it's nicer to have cat6/7. But if you already have cat5e wired in the house... it'll work just fine (my whole house is wired 5e and Google fibers GB down works just fine). Personally, if I were wiring fresh, sure go w/ the latest and greatest. But, if your place already has 5e or 6, keep it.
There is a lot of misinformation here, so let me add some more:

For home users, here are the major take-aways:
*The Cat6 cables here are unshielded and should not be run in the walls or where it can be affected by interference. They will push your normal 1 gigabit/second in your home network. (or up to 10 gigabit/second for the extremely few of you who have capable cards and switches, which you don't because they are outrageously expensive )

*The Cat7 cables listed are shielded and backwards-compatible with Cat5 cable and will push your normal 1 Gigabit/second for your home network. Manufacturers do not recognize Cat7 as a standard, although tests have shown it can carry 100 gigabit/second... but currently manufacturers support the Cat6a standard - which none of these listed are. While they appear on paper to be 'better' there is no guarantee that this will be a future standard or will work with faster future standards as far as we know.

So for those who are asking "Should I buy these to future-proof my house?"
My advice: Probably not, although its possible the Cat7 cables will work, it would be a lot smarter to just do it right and buy a spool of shielded Cat6a cable to run... or if you have an unfinished house, put in "tech tubes" so you don't have to worry about fishing cables through walls and ceilings in the future.

this is a great deal, but OP needs to state that these are flat cables otherwise its not that great a deal since $10 is the regular price of round 100ft cables. The flats are usually more expensive.
The flats are the best for IP cameras even those that do not support PoE can be made Poe with cheap adapters from ebay and these flat cables.
BTW this deal is limit 1 per account as always these Amazon deals are, but just wanted to confirm the same.

Flats are not twisted, unlike most rounded cables, so minimal protection from interference. As suggested, good for camera runs, but wouldn't use for network cabling.

Very good info for anyone thinking of wiring their house with this. This deal is good price-wise, but these CAT6 cables at these lengths are not very useful. The CAT7 are shielded so they're fine if you have need of 50ft.



EDIT: Disregard, per the comment below. I did not read the description, I only said that based on the previous comment.

EDIT 2: Disregard my disregard, the CAT7 are shielded, the CAT6 are not.

from the description on Amazon:

"Jadaol Cat7 cables are Made of 4 shielded twisted pair (STP) of copper wires..."

Trying to end flat cables was probably the most frustrating experience of my life. I don't know how people do it. I'll stick to my caveman round cables.
