can anyone offer any advice on this speaker cable

http://www.amazon.com/Sewell-Speaker-Cable-Banana-Plugs/dp/B0056BEL1W

less than half the price than if I were to purchase same length cable from blue jeans cables ($40)

I know blue jeans has great reputation for quality cables at good prices, so I was wondering if the sewell cable might be crap given that its so much cheaper ($16)

should I go blue jeans or the cheaper alternative ?

there is nothing wrong with that cable. You could make your own for even less, and they'd be perfectly suitable.

mods, can we have a 'dislike' button ?

I agree completely with the other two replies. The only thing to watch out for is crappy construction.
