I hate snagless ends. They are a pain to unplug from computers in my opinion. However, if you are just going to plug this in and leave it, the cable is great. Since the cable is listed as snagless (right?) I don't think I can knock a star off. I get full bandwidth between two gigabit adapters and have had no issues with reliability. Cat6 cables are a must have if you keep files on a home server, like to game, or share files with other computers at home. For this price you can't go wrong!
