    6ft SATA 6 Gbps External Shielded Cable - eSATA to eSATA (Type I to Type I) - Black

    External SATA (eSATA) cables are designed to connect external SATA devices to either external SATA ports or internal SATA connectors. Unlike cables for internal applications, eSATA cabling must be shielded. The eSATA connectors are keyed differently, to prevent the use of internal SATA cables in external applications. While internal SATA connectors have an "L" shaped key, eSATA connectors use smaller, vertically offset keys.

    This shielded eSATA cable is certified to perform to SATA 6 Gbps performance standards. Each end is terminated in an eSATA connector for use with external SATA devices and controller ports only.

    Note that SATA 6 Gbps cables are backwards compatible and can be used with SATA 3 Gbps and SATA 1.5 Gbps devices. However, the data transfer of the SATA subsystem will be limited to that of the slowest device. So, for example, if a SATA 6 Gbps cable is connected to a SATA 3 Gbps drive and a SATA 1.5 Gbps controller, the drive will be limited to a transfer rate of 1.5 Gbps.

    The cables do not work with our external raid boxes

    We ordered a batch of 5 of these cables because we need the 6ft length. We have tried every cable in the batch and none of them work. Not sure what is different with this cable for our 3ft cables that are shipped with our hardware.

    My apologies for the issues you have experienced with PID 8791. Unfortunately, it sounds like you may have received a defective product. It is a bit odd to have all 5 not work but it could be a possibility of a bad batch. May I ask what the model of your raid boxes are and what the device is that you are connecting them to?

    Pros: Basic cables needed.

    This online retailer had exactly what I needed at an affordable price.
    Basic esata cable to read external drives. No problems.

    6ft eSata cable

    • Al K,

    Pros: Works great. Initial testing was showing 120meg transfer rate. Nice and solid round cable.

    I'm using this on an external HD cabinet. This is the second cable, RMA'd the first one that was defective. Support was great in doing the RMA. First cable just wouldn't let me read a directory, let alone copy data. The connectors on this one are solid.
    Dropped 1 point just due to the RMA.

    Dont Buy

    • DaveD,

    Pros: Was inexpensive and delivered on time.

    Replacement was fast.

    Cons: Did not work. Put Windows 8.1 in continuous error.
    Received replacement quickly (thank you Monoprice) but it did not work either. Actually did work once or twice but 99% of the times I tried it,it did not work.

    After one replacement decided not to bother although I'm sure Monoprice would have replaced it again. Went back to my shorter cable which works 100% of the time.
    Would not buy!
    Generally have good experiences with Monoprice cables and Monoprice service is good.
    Bought a similar cable through Amazon and it works fine although I paid a bit more.
    Just don't recommend this cable.

    Hi Dave,

    Truly sorry to hear about your experience with PID 8791. We do offer a 30 day return policy as well as a lifetime warranty on our cables. If you would like, I can assist you in setting up an RMA for your item. However if you would like to try another eSATA cable, an alternative for PID 8791 would be PID 3943:


    Please let me know if you would like to continue with a replace or refund. Thank you.

    6ft 6 Gbps eSATA to eSATA External Shielded Cable - (Type I to Type I) - Black

    • Pete,

    Pros: Inexpensive
    6 Gbps
    Fast Shipping
    Molded connectors - appear as well made as the 39" ones that came with my relatively expensive eSATA enclosures.

    Cons: None that I can see.

    I ordered three of these to reach from CPU's under my desk to my eSATA enclosures sitting on my desk. Work perfectly. Wish I had ordered a few more. Will combine with my next order.
