1m 30AWG Internal Mini SAS 36pin (SFF-8087) Male w/ Latch to SATA 7pin Female (x4) Forward Breakout Cable - Black

Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) is a high-speed data storage interface designed for high-throughput and fast data access. Intended primarily for data storage centers, the SAS interface is backwards compatible with SATA. This allows the user to mix more expensive, lower-capacity SAS drives for applications that require faster data access and higher reliability, with lower-cost, higher-capacity SATA drives for applications with lower access speed requirements. Monoprice carries a full line of quality SAS cables with connectors for every possible application, both internal and external.

This 1 meter long cable uses 30 AWG wires and is intended for internal use. It has a single 36-pin SFF-8087 male Mini-SAS plug (with locking latch) on one end and has four 7-pin SATA female plugs (with locking latches) on the other, allowing you to connect four SATA drives to an SAS controller. This is a Forward Breakout cable, meaning that it is intended to connect to a host/controller on the SAS end and to drives on the SATA end.

Pros: I have bought three. All Channels work. These cables are delicate, but you are also not paying mush $$.

I will buy more. You should as well.

Pros: Works as advertised, good length, good sleeving

Cons: Doesn't have the sgpio (sideband) connector - the right angle sff-8087 cable on here has sgpio, why not this one :(

Here's hoping someone at monoprice is reading this!

All in all a good cable, had to replace it with a cable that costs 3 times as much just so i can have sgpio for the backplane health monitoring

Pros: Price is the biggest pro. Quality is very good (not great but hence the price) Will buy more when needed

Cons: None really

Good quality product at an awesome price this is what makes Monoprice great. Shipping was nice and fast (only paid for the slowest which is usually an extra 2 days from other vendors in same location as monoprice) Will be a repeat customer! No to just check out those nice OLED IPS displays :)

Pros: good quality
good price
does everything as expected

Cons: none

I've been using those cables between IBM M 1015 and SATA disks. I have six of those cables in total. Never experienced any issue with them. They latch very well on both sides.
Quality product with a good price tag.
