I mostly use Mediabridge bought from Amazon due to its price to performance ratio. Customer reviews (nearly 5600) going back several years are very positive (over 90%) and I can confirm based on my experience. And it's UV resistant.

I do have one 50' run of Home Depot Deluxe quad cable and it's still "like new" after four years of outdoor use now in the sunny, salty air.

I agree with Tim that Belden is certainly the industry standard. I don't think anyone will argue with that, other than perhaps the price, depending on where you purchase it.

Just my 2 cents. All the best.....
