Labgear RG59BU Coaxial Cable 50m Black
Does The Job
Bought this in a rush as I forgot to order from my usual supplier. The cable is fine for the use on CCTV however as per the reviews above there is no real and this makes managing the cable bad! My advise is to by one with a real as this will just stress you out trying to unravel.

Bought in error
Seeing the term "coax cable" made me think this was suitable for TV aerial to TV link but when I later checked on RG59 spec realised it was more for CCTV and video-linking. Thankfully I hadn`t opened the wrapping and Screwfix did an exchange plus cash for "proper" coax. Both varieties came as 50 metre rolls (held by wrapper and cable-end covers) so I put the right one in a bucket to avoid other reviewers` frustration of loose and tangled coils all over the floor and pulled the end from the centre. (A reel must add to the cost but as a DIY-er I think a Xmas sweet tin with a hole in the side should hold the coil but at the same time allow one to pull the cable out as as required.....)

Why isn't this on a reel?
I have no issue with the cable itself, TV picture is fine, but why doesn't this come on a reel? It comes wrapped in clear plastic and as soon as you remove this and try to pull some cable out it turns into a tangled mess that takes time to sort out...
Unless you are of a very patient nature I would spend a bit more money and get cable on a reel...
