Anyone ever purchased from Cables Direct? (

Are they any good? Just in the market for some cables and other equipment and they seem to have some very good prices so I was thinking about purchasing from them.

Yes, I get most of my cable stuff there, they are great!

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

I can second that recommendation.  I've used them a few times and no issues at all.  Super sharp prices too.

I bought some rj45 patch cables from them for first time this week and really happy with them. Placed the order on Wednesday got it delivered on the next day.

You might want to check wholesale electrical suppliers like Master Trade/RJ Russel/ Cory's as you will save on shipping and they got similar prices to Cables Direct. I just prefer the convinece of Cables Direct as they deliver items rather than physically going to shop and buying it.

I have also bought a few cables from there, and I also highly recommend them. Good web site and an easy process to order your stuff, plus you get a lot of emails with different status updates (order received, processed, shipped, etc), and really good pricing too.
