woah you want the difference if happy with awg28 or free shipping exchange for 24awg

seems a leazy move by seller for pulling a stunt like that...... IMHO avoid e-tailers

the 24 is better

My System Specs


I would ask for them to fix it seeing as AWG24 has lower resistance as it has a larger cross-sectional area then that of AWG28. This may not effect you at 25 feet, though it does mean your signal has slightly more line resistance on AWG28 then AWG24.
