Only worth it if your entire wired network is gigabit, and don't expect 1 gigabit transfer rates on your network... the gigabit identifier is for bandwidth and not speed... actual speeds will be a little over 100 megabits (~12-15 megabytes/sec in my experience)


So unless you do regular transfers of large files over your wired LAN, and have a gigabit ethernet card and switch/router, don't bother just stick with cat 5e for now.
