Re: tool-less vs. punch-down CAT jacks + cables

I used those exact tool-less keystones on my Cat 6 that I rewired my house with. All worked fine and not a single failure yet. All running 1Gbps.

What data are you running at 1 Gbps?

Large data files (30GB+) from SSD RAIDs.

Oh, file size not data transfer speed. What is your transmission speed?

Thanks for all who replied. Probably more than I ever need to know.

I plan on using the CAT6 connector with a punchdown tool and a solid CAT6 riser cable.

Does anyone know if HD or Lowes sell bulk CAT6, or any mail order place that sells a quantity other than a full spool/reel?

I got 1000f of cat6 for 80$ (shipped) off eBay.

You either buy terminated lenghts, or you buy a full 1000f.

i buy 5e from a local supply house for 50$ a 1000ft spool. I stock CAT 6 but only when people request it, its a bit thick and most people wont need anything more than gig

Looking at cables, there are CCA (Copper Clad Aluminium) and solid copper. Aside from the obvious (i.e. price, composition, etc.) is there any difference between the two?

Dont touch Copper Clad Aluminum with a 10 foot pole. That stuff isn't even remotely close to spec.

Large file transfer such as copying recorded DVR shows.

The DVR allows to be on the network? Lucky you.

Yes. I have a media center PC with a CableCARD tuner. That is my "DVR."
