Possible stepper motor cable?

I found this on EBay. Does this guy's explanation of not needing shielded cable for steppers make sense. The price is right, if it will work.

Paul,
His price is $0.50 per foot. I don't pay anywhere near that price for shielded cable from Colemans here in Salt Lake City. He may be right about not needing shielded cable for the stepper, but the stepper voltages can and do cross-talk to other cables in the bundle. To be safe, I always use shielded cable.

Mike, when you say "I don't pay anywhere near that price" do you mean you get it cheaper than that? Thanks for the reply

Have any of you tried www.digikey.com or www.mouser.com they carry a lot of cable and other neat electronics stuff and ship all over the states. Check out their prices.

Sorry, there is no website. Colemans is a local business that services the telecommunication industry.
