For the price, you can't go wrong with these. I have 2 of these connected to my HighPoint RocketRaid 2720 controller. I have 2 arrays defined with these (a RAID-0 and a RAID-5) and have absolutely no issues. The RAID-0 are two SATA 6Gb/s SSD drives so if I were going to have issues with these cables, that array would be the first to complain.
PROS: Inexpensive, plenty of length for very large cases, metal clips on both the SATA connector as well as the SAS connector.
CONS: Longer than you might expect. I had to coil it up behind my motherboard plate. The SATA wire that leaves the conduit and goes to the SATA connector is actually two small ribbons. I could see where these might be more fragile than a traditional SATA cable.
Shipping costs are starting to get a bit too high on some of MonoPrice's stuff.
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: Price is the biggest pro. Quality is very good (not great but hence the price) Will buy more when needed
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.
PROS: good quality good price does everything as expected
