    Hi Alex,

    I had a look at those 2 listings. The cat5e is only F/UTP, meaning that each pair is foil wrapped, but no shielded drain wire. The cat6e is S/FTP meaning that each pair is foil wrapped but does include the drain wire (see here). The question is whether the drain wire is soldered to the RJ45 ends. It is critical that there be continuity between the 2 ethercon shells for proper ESD protection, and that can only happen if the drain wire is soldered to each RJ45 connector.
