After installation, I discovered that one of the ends was faulty (thank goodness it was an END!). After replacing the end, it works OK, although I noticed the individual wires are much more brittle than I would have expected. Data flow seems better than with the previous cat5 cable, although I'm still having SOME data flow issues... it could be any number of other reasons for that though.
ConsA sealed boot isn't all that big a selling point when the plug is bad and has to be cut off and replaced.
