...what's not to like. The cables I ordered tested perfectly with one of my external hard drive enclosures, the cables are a good length without being too long, and they seem pretty solid with a positive feel when they are connected. If I need more, I'll just come back here to get them.
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.
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.
PROS: Works great. Initial testing was showing 120meg transfer rate. Nice and solid round cable.
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:
I plugged in the cable into my eSata ports. It didn't work (TBD reason). Upon unplugging the cable, I noticed the metal connector pulling out of the plastic jacket. I never used it again for fear of it breaking off in the eSata port. Needs to be returned.
Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear about the issues experienced with PID 8791. If I may ask, what devices were you looking to connect with this cable? Also, are you able to send me a picture of the connector issue so we can look into this issue further? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org . Thank you in advance!

Great cable at a very low price
PROS: Works great. Just the size I needed for my external hard drives.
