I'm very pleased with the product excellent prices good quality beautiful color perfect fit the shipping was cheap and fast I recommend buying in bulk I ordered a bunch of them but for the price I should have bought more i will definitely be buying from here again very happy with everything if you're looking for decent quality for a little amount of money look no further this is it
I have a lot of hard drives crammed into a standard midtower and it was a mess of sata cables. These cables were exactly what I needed to connect all of my drives without a lot of slack cable hanging around. Obviously it still makes for a clean set up even if you only have one or two drives. Only issue is that toward the top of the case, it's not quite enough, but obviously that is no fault of this cable itself.
There isn't a whole lot to say about these cables. I am happy to have them. I find that in my desktop PC, replacing the nest of SATA cables with short ones really cleans things up a lot. I actually could have gone without locking mechanisms on the connectors but it's fine that they're there. Most situations call for shorter SATA cables! And hey, as usual, Monoprice's price was right.
Cables work fine, but fitment is just OK. The metal locking clip is noticeably cheaper than the other SATA cables I have which appear to be stainless while these are painted black.
Also, I had minor problems fitting multiple cables on my motherboard. The primary issue was that the clips stuck out too far and then interfered with the adjacent SATA connector. I was able to work around the issue by squeezing the clip down all the way before inserting the connectors.
PROS: Very inexpensive and they work.
CONS: Clips are cheap and the connectors are a bulky making fitting multiple connectors onto your motherboard a bit tricky. Personally, I'd rather pay a bit more for the cables for a higher quality, lower profile clip and connector.
