I recently purchased an Ethernet cable and I was wondering what your latest longest cable purchase is.

Let's make this an annual thread and the best and most friendliest on MacRumors.

I'll start with my recent longest cable purchase. Can you guess the length?

My guess would be 10m.

The longest I've ever bought is 305m. Cat 6 for permanent installation. Can't fit it in a picture since it's already installed inside of the walls :D

Your mystery cables are 5m ?

I recently got 25 foot hdmi and cat6 cables, to connect my living room home theatre AVR and TV to source devices in another room. The cables run under the floor in a crawl space (dusty down there).

I have a 100 foot roll of #14 speaker cable but it will be cut into short pieces of less than 20 feet.
