That's the direct link, and you don't need the coupon if you click the Promotion button on the page.

Just S said: It is cheap (junk) and cheap (>$) so I won't complain too much. Good for an emergency or temporary use, but I wouldn't rely on it for any daily or mission critical stuff. This cable provides EXTREMELY slow speeds vs any of my other cables. Six speed tests on three different cables: averaged 43Mbps with this cable and 217Mbps with each of my typical good quality Cat 5 cables. Even at pennies, I wouldn't buy again.

Flat cables are highly susceptible to interference.

Referring to the photo, it might be easier to coil and pack in a laptop bag.  If it is thinner than a round cable, it might be easier to hide behind hollow baseboard molding or under a carpet.  Anyone else have ideas?

Fakespot Grade F. i will pass it.

I've bought 3 feet, 5 feet, 15 feet and now 25 feet flat cables from this company before when they've had various promotions. I've not run any speed tests, etc, but they seem to run fine for me. The advantage is they are kind of easy to route around compared to regular cables. Disadvantages are they are supposedly more susceptible to interference, but again, not as a power user, they seem to work just fine for me. In for 1.

  Someone should "fakespot" Fakespot.  Their "fakespoting" method is questionable and their results always gets them a commission from AMZ for their "reecommendations."

What about ReviewMeta? Seems stricter than fakespot...

Are you buying or selling?

For outdoor cable, you want to look for the terms "Direct Burial" if it is going underground, and "UV Resistant" if it is above ground. It mostly comes in spools, because they figure anyone installing it underground is going to put their own end connectors on it (aka termination). 
If this is outside above ground, I would suggest putting it in a conduit if at all possible. This will protect against critters eating it, and provide additional UV protection. You'll probably want to paint the conduit to give it additional UV protection.
