Pros: Inexpensive. Couple inches longer than the last pair I'd purchased.
Other Thoughts: If you know you need good forward SAS->SATA cables, these ones are doing the job for me. Two of them fit with enough cable length to be routed behind the case's motherboard pan, making the overall build look nice and have better airflow.

Other Thoughts: I bought this system to plug into my SuperMicro X9DAi motherboard for a RAID0 array of 4 250 MB Samsung EVO SSD drives. There have been some grumblings about SAS cables being incompatible with various motherboards and/or drives, so I bought with a bit of trepidation and the return-receipt in hand should I need it. But I plugged it in, it worked like a charm, I installed the operating system and software, and my machine is screaming fast now running on 4 parallel striped SSDs (wheeee!).
No complaints. It worked like a cable should. I'm a satisfied customer.

Pros: I can get sustained speeds of about 650-800MBps. I am a video editor and I'm running this with 8 3TB Seagate 7200rpm Barracuda drives. The drives cost me about as much as the card did. I'm in RAID 6 (18TB) and the speed is way better than I could have hoped for.
Cons: The processor on this card is running over 75C at stock. After a while I even saw it hitting above 80C. I've done some research and the concensus is that the thermal contact and the stock HSF are garbage. I've seen others with this card who have replaced the HSF and their temps under heavy load drop to the low 40s, and at idle they stick in the mid 30s. I am antsy about replacing the HSF because I don't want to void the warranty. However, it's borderline inexcusable to ship a product that runs this hot out of the box.
Other Thoughts: I've had this over a month now, so far so good. I've added additional 80mm fans next to the CPU without modding the card and I have my temperature now down to about 45C at idle. I believe it took a few days/weeks for the stock thermal compound to break in on the card.
