    Patch cable suppliers?

    I'm wondering what suppliers you recommend for patch cables? We need some cables around 0.3 m and 0.5m (not sure if any smaller)

    We are trying to colour code some of our patch panels in our cabs so its easy to identify what goes where so a few good colour options would be nice..........!

    Try these out
    http://www.theitindex.co.uk/login/ - Various colour belkin 0.5m cables for 31p each
    http://www.cableuniverse.co.uk/catal...x&cPath=23_138 - bulk pack .03 x 50 for £22.13
    http://www.datalinkcabling.co.uk/cat-5e.aspx?id=3 - from 59p each

    Good luck organising your cabs. I spent a good couple of days doing that and it lasted about 3 mins before it got messed up again !

    Webman, i notice from your gallary you have some Buffalo Terrastations. Been looking at them as they seem a cost effective (read: cheap) NAS solution. They any good? Sorry to wander off topic.

    Hi Lee. Yes they're not bad ... there's a thread on here somewhere about the time we got them. We had one died after a power surge but was replaced rather quickly. There's a community built up around them with custom firmware available, but we've just stuck with the official one and integrated into AD nicely.
