    Patch Cables

    Anyone know of a good place to buy short 1' etc bootless patch cables....

    I've been looking around and a majority of them have boots.

    I think Cables-To-Go has them. That is where we ordered ours from, if I recall correctly!

    I've had a lot of luck with sfcable.com (in terms of both delivery, price, and quality). This was with power cables admittedly, but I'd suggest browsing their selection, if their network side has any similarities to their power side, it'd be a good find .

    lol wow you guys are getting ripped on cable pricing.

    50 cents a cable! www.monoprice.com

    We've bought hundreds of pounds of cat6 from them and only had 1 or 2 cables come bad.

    Another thumbs up for Monoprice. I really like the molded "boots", but they make it a pain to unplug from the switch ports. Excellent prices and quality!

    +2 Monoprice. We've been using them for years with really no major issues.

    I've honestly never bought CAT5/6 cables at Monoprice, but I've used them for tons of A/V related cables like HDMI cables and speaker cables and whatnot. I've been pleased every time, so definitely worth a shot!

    Same here. I started using them for AV stuff in my house a few years ago..Gave them a shot on the CAT5/6 side and couldn't be happier with the price, service, and quality.

    Nice to see you're still lurking around Curtis. I do believe Alex told Mark about Monoprice during our last visit. Glad we could be of help.

    Actually, for grins, I went over to Monoprice and I only see booted connectors on their cables. OP wants non-booted. Am I missing soemthing?

    It's barely booted, be cheaper to but it and cut off the boot with an exacto knife. 2 Seconds a boot for $2 savings.. worth it imo.

    I think its cheaper to injection mold the boot than to crimp on a connector.

    I just wired a new buildings patch panel with CAT6 cables from Monoprice to the switches. Also got them for the wall jack to the phones and pc's. The best cables I have ever used.

    That's quite the testimonial there. I guess Monoprice it should be then - haha.

    Another (unofficial - personal use) endorsement for Monoprice. When shopping for cables, panels, connectors, jacks and plates of any kind, they're my first stop (as long as I'm not in a rush as it takes a while for parcels to get cleared by the customs).

    The only problem I have with monoprice is they do not have CAT6a cables, they only go up to CAT6

    We now run 6a UTP cables, panels and jacks in our new office installs. (Desk to wiring closet). Monoprice 6a cables are STP it is not clear that they are still 6a compliment when not part of a shielded system.

    While we currently run only 1Gig over the system, we still certify to 10Gig (including AX) to make sure there will be no problems when the 10Gig switches become more reasonable.

    Monoprice 6A cables are STP do you think they are still 6A complient when not part of a shielded system? They certainly look tempting.

    patch cables

    Take a look at M2Cables also but may have to call for the best price.
