Monoprice as above   great.   If buying elsewhere be sure you are getting stranded not solid core (solid core is for permanent installation and is subject to breakage).  I purchased some 100 foot cable to cut for shorter extensions and found that they did not follow the normal color coding (bought from china) so look at who you are buying from and check that what you are buying is what you want.

Been a while since I checked, but both Home Depot and Lowes had prices close to Monoprice with shipping for a 1000 foot box.

I love monoprice and get other things from them as well. Check out their Velcro tie wraps for your CCRs. I even get my standard zip tied from them.

10% off today and tomorrow.  Use FALL10 at checkout. Their cables are good.  I'm scrapping all my cheap cables I thought I saved money on.

I buy mine off of Ebay. Lot of selections and length. Prices good.

I bought 4 new cat5 cabels from monoprice a few weeks ago and had issues with my show. Took a close look at the new cabels and all 4 were wired wrong! Decided to make my own and will never buy premade cabels again....I've ordered a lot from monoprice and this was my first bad order...

Guess I need to get out my cable tester.  I don't have patients to build cables by hand unless I absolutely have to.

To the OP, I had that problem a few times too. I created a sub folder in my bookmarks called Christmas. I  put all kinds of URLs, aka bookmarks in there dealing with Christmas forums, lights, FM transmitters, and wire frames or materials like for Mega Trees. Then you have a go to place to look up some of those sites.

Strung my whole display with new monoprice cables and everything looks to be operating perfectly.
