You’d think a cable is a cable is a cable, and for the most part, that’s true. But a pack of cables at the price of what retailers (if they carry it at all) charge for one, is a great deal. Even if one was “bad”, you’d have 9 more to choose from and the odds all 9 are bad is pretty slim. These are a little stiff, but that turns out to be okay for my application, so I don’t mind at all. The locking latch gives a little bit of peace-of-mind that the cables won’t magically disconnect themselves.
Replaced some older shorter SATA III cables with these for better cable management in my blue/black build. No problems with quality, just wish the cables were 180-degree plugs on both ends. Product in use for two weeks at time of posting this review.
Nice deal for the price. 18" Blue SATA cable with locking latch.
For the price the cables are well made and have latches instead of an annoying pull tab. The locking latches work well for hard to reach situations and one end being a 90 degree angle helps as well. They are easy to install, easy to work with and 18" overall size. Shipping was pretty impressive as well.
