Cable pulls well, good signal quality. Yes it is CCS (copper clad steel) but that does not seem to impact the signal quality. The wire pulls good. Quality Compression connectors and the right tools make terminating these cables fairly easy.
A company called Vextra apparently does make solid copper RG-6 wire (V621Q) no personal experience, but I may give it a go if I need more cable.
Pros: Easy Installation

No, I do not recommend this product.
Price is just that. I bought the 500ft. RG6 Quad Shield assuming it was solid copper conductor, NOT clad steel. I'm running 300ft, fortunate in conduit outdoors. Am going to supplement this, rather than pull it out (keep as spare), and add RG6-U solid copper as it will be better for lower signal loss in longer distances. Do it once, do it right Dad taught me.
Pros: inexpensive up front cost.
Cons: steel / copper clad not as good as solid copper.

I used one roll for my house, seems good quality.
From southwire website:
Conductors: 1 - 18 AWG copper clad steel .040"
Beware it is NOT solid copper. Compare to my cable company's cable which is solid copper.
I will buy it again for the price, since there is not much choice for 500ft at this price range. If I knew I need 1000ft, I probably get 1000ft solid copper.
Pros: good price good build quality
Cons: not solid copper

Ran into a problem when I moved into newly remodeled older home...no coax in any rooms! Cable installer showed up and had nothing to hook up to. I am not a professional installer, but a network engineer by trade, so some experience with pulling a cable or two.
This cable pulls really easily, and is very stout when getting smalls snags. Slightly stiff and very well produced cladding. A ittle larger because of that fact, so if your home-running (like I did), you may need to drill more than one hole and do more pulling than you originally imagined.
Technically, very robust, I didn't have the space to avoid a lot of interference points, had to run very close to power a lot, and I have great signal strength on all runs (about the longest being 150ft)
Additionally, just know: Home Depot takes PayPal at the register, one of the only big box stores ive seen with that yet. I always seem to have a little extra cash in there from eBay sales, etc. and it was nice to just enter my phone number/pin and be on my way.
Pros: Easy to Use, Nice Design, Easy Installation
