What are the Best AUX Cables in Canada – buy them from PrimeCables

Aux cables are multi-purpose and very handy to have around the house. Also known as auxiliary cables, they can be used to hook up a smartphone or device to the car stereo, to headphones, or to speakers without having to tap into Bluetooth or having to have Bluetooth capability.

 

There are dozens of different aux cables available, each with a different type of connector. Depending on the need, the connector’s to match. Not every aux cord is equal. The best aux cables are going to be those customized to your needs, in addition to nailing down an affordable price, high quality materials, and a logical construction.

 

PrimeCables’ Aux cables are among the best in Canada, available at several different price points, at various lengths, and in various types. All of our cables pass strong quality control standards, testing sound and durability. Some of the deals you’ll find in our catalogue include a 3.5mm 1-metre AUX cable for $4.99, a 3.5mm three-feet M/M stereo Aux cable with Nylon braided protection for $4.99, a 3.5mm six-feet model at a similar price point, and other models.

 

The best audio quality and reliability comes from Aux cables with gold-plated connectors. Gold transmits electrical signals better than other materials – which can include aluminum, iron, or bass. Gold always provides a stronger connection and clearer sound.

 

The best AUX cable in Canada is also going to have to be durable and made with braided Nylon, such as PrimeCables’ Braided Nylon prevents tangling, fraying, and breaking of the wires inside. No matter what you need it for, we also recommend going with a cable a little bit longer than what you think you need. Especially if it’s for use in a car, the more room you have to play with, the more thankful you’ll be to have the cable to go where you need it to go. Unless you’re sure about the limited space you have, consider a slightly longer aux cable.

 

The best AUX cable overall PrimeCables is our 1-metre male stereo Nylon braided protected cable. It’s pet chew resistant, has the sheathing you want, is made from a beveled step design, boasts zero distortion and complete transmission, and has corrosion-resistant gold-plated audio plugs.

 

Affordable, reliable AUX cables from PrimeCables are compatible with many devices and are easily the best choice available in Canada for most needs. Connect your smartphone, tablets, speakers, and other 3.5mm plugged devices. Shop PrimeCables today for these deals and others.

Is it Time to Upgrade your Network Cable to Cat6 and Future-Proof – we say yes!

Upgrading to Cat6a cables from Cat5 or Cat6 cable is unquestionably the best choice you can make if you’re struggling with your bandwidth and Internet speeds. As demand for faster efficiency with our Internet continues to peak, the old Cat standards no longer work.

 

New Ethernet installations done today should be done with at least Cat6 Ethernet cable, although Cat6a is even better. This is the most advanced Category Ethernet cable there is, perfect for today’s speed and bandwidth needs. Cat5 was a mid-to-late-1990s favourite while Cat5e rose in popularity in the 2000s. Cat6 has been in use since the late 2000s and in the last five years, Cat6a has received much attention for its advancements.

 

When it comes to future-proofing, what we mean is by installing a high quality advanced cable today, you’re preventing yourself from having to upgrade in the future. And, make no mistake, there will come a time when you need to upgrade. As the Internet continues to grow and use more bandwidth, you need the cable to handle it. Ethernet network cables like Cat6a are your best bet.

 

Something which a lot of homeowners and commercial businesses forget about Cat6a networking cable is that in order to achieve the bandwidth, network, and speed promised, all cabling and accessories must meet the minimum standard set out by the IEEE. If any single component’s low quality or older, you may not see the bandwidth improvements expected.

 

Can you still get by with Cat5 cable – not really. The maximum frequency it has is 100 MHz and speeds up to 100 Mbps. Although it may work for a local area network in some commercial environments, Cat5 cable is too slow for most applications and within a decade, will be completely gone. Cat5e cable is an enhanced version of Cat5e cable however and is designed to handle speeds up to 1,000 Mbps. Cat5e cable generally works for most applications, although when possible, switching to Cat6 cable is the better option.

 

If it’s a new Ethernet installation, Cat6 cable is absolutely a must. You’ll receive bandwidth allowance up to 250 MHZ and speeds up to 10 Gbps. Cat6a Ethernet cable has additional advantages over Cat6 and this includes higher bandwidth up to 500 MHZ, 10-gigabit speeds over 330 feet of cable which is double the length of what its cousin Cat6 allows.

Why you want a Curved Monitor as a Gamer over a Flat Monitor

Curved or flat monitors. That’s the question so many gamers have to ask themselves. Shopping monitors doesn’t always give a clear cut choice on what’s preferred. There’s no questioning curved monitors are on-trend right now, preferred by many in the professional gaming industry as they tend to give a more realistic, immersive portrayal of the action. But, do you really need a curved monitor – well, here’s how we see it from a gamer’s perspective.

Curved monitors are designed in a way that replicates reality, using ‘ocular perception’. We see the world in length, width, and height, for example. If everything were to be flat, it would only employ two dimensions. Curved monitors create the illusion of three dimensions, tapping into perception of peripheral vision. For a lot of people, this is the primary benefit of seeing a game through the perspective of a curved screen.

Beyond being a generally more immersive viewing experience, a curved gaming monitor also generally presents as less distorted and less blurry. If you’re getting a video or picture quality distorted due to a hardware issue, a curved screen does not have the same distortion as a flat monitor would. That’s because curved screens’ shape aims everything at the viewer rather than a flat screen which broadcasts everything in a uniform straight line. As mentioned, we don’t look at things flatly and so when we see vision flat, it can sometimes create perceived distortions especially at the edges. A curved monitor doesn’t have that issue because everything’s positioned on a more natural curve.

Playing video games on a curved monitor also is generally more comfortable on the eyes and results in less eye strain. Even at a large size, a curved screen gives the user the chance to feel comfortable without unknowingly challenging their eyes to strain across a flat surface. Lastly, curved monitors also provide a wider field of view. As curved will always direct light from all angles, your eyes can more easily cover a larger field of view. This is the main reason why it is believed and said that curved monitors are ‘more immersive’. To put it in a nutshell, you forget you’re looking at a monitor when you have a curved field of view in front of you.

Curved vs flat monitors is a debate we enjoy having at PrimeCables. If you’re seeking a curved gaming monitor or a flat gaming monitor, please visit Canada’s own PrimeCables today and receive fast, free shipping on all orders above $49.
