    2m 28AWG External Mini SAS 26pin (SFF-8088) Male to Mini SAS 26pin (SFF-8088) Male 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 2 meter long cable uses 28 AWG wires and is intended for external use. It has a 26-pin SFF-8088 male Mini-SAS plug (with release ring) on each end.

    Not capable of 6gbps

    Pros: Probably works just fine for 3gbps SATA / SAS drives.

    Cons: You get worrisome command errors if you use it with 6gbps drives.

    The price was reasonable, however when attaching this to 6gbps drives you get a lot of command timeouts. It took me a while to diagnose this issue until I found somebody having similar issues during heavy write bandwidth saturation. After a laborious amount of debugging with the controller I decided to buy a different 8088 cable rated for 6gbps line speeds and lo and behold, my issues disappeared.

    I'm requesting a refund. To be fair the product description never claimed to be 6gbps rated, but that information should be posted.

    Works with HP LTO tape drives

    Pros: price, value, solid connection to devices

    Using a couple of these cables to connect an HP p411 SAS card to LTO 5 and 6 tape drives. Works as expected. Snug fit to devices. Replaced OEM cables that were damaged during an equipment move.
