Hey Guys,

I'm after about 30 CAT6 cables that are about 1ft/30cm in length.  Tried the usual places
- aliexpress
- ebay
- dhgate

but cant find any with free shipping and a reasonable price.  This is the sort of stuff you can get dirt cheap if you know the right website.

Best i've found is ebay but I have to pay shipping on top of that.

Anyone know a really good website to buy stuff like this with free shipping from china?

Thanks

Considered just buying them local?  Not much more really.  They're nice cables too, with the snagless moulding.

May I ask why you want Cat6 specifically? Cat5e is cheaper - and if you buy dirt cheap Cat6 cables are they really going to be Cat6 anyway?

my whole house is cat6, the price difference for cat5e and cat6 is so low i dont see the point of buying any cat5e cables ever again.

im going to use the cables to connect patch panels up to a switch, so thats why im after short cables, and a fair amount of them.

i swear i found a good Chinese site once that I nearly bought them through, not I just cant find it....

I love buying stuff direct from china, makes me feel like i got a bargain :)

The only other Chinese site I can think of is DX but they don't seem to have any that short.

You could try www.cdlnz.com generally less than $2 per cable for 0.3 meters

Correct.

Places like Cables Direct are just drop shipping dealers for CDLNZ.
