1 out of 5 eggsQuality Issues

Pros: Inexpensive . I bought six of these units.

Cons: Extremely poor quality.
Metal latch was missing in one and in the other one it got detached after first use.

Other Thoughts: It should be removed from the list of items sold thru New egg

5 out of 5 eggsOKGEAR 18" SATA 6gbps

Pros: Arrived on time. Does its job well. Like the bright green color

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Wished that I had purchased with an angled cable connector on one end as the straight end connecting to my new HD actually sticks outside the PC case. Will have to either bore a hole in the side of the case :<) or purchased a cable with angled connector

5 out of 5 eggsIt's just a cable!

Pros: Nice UV green, 18 inches is not too long but not too short, it's just a cable folks

Cons: Doesn't allow me to travel in time

Other Thoughts: Seriously, those folks who are having issues with the cable clips? I don't see it. It's your standard clip, push down to release lock. When SATA came out I don't remember them having clips, so I always try to get cables with clips. Nothing worse than having a cable come slightly loose when trying to adjust something inside then not knowing what happened when your system refuses to boot. They simply work, match my case, would buy again!

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad

Pros: The cables look great in my case.

Cons: I should have measured first, because 18 inch cables don't leave a lot of wiggle room for me to route them better.

The clamps do seem a little cheap, but I ordered 5 of them and I don't usually replace equipment unless its time to upgrade, so not really a problem for me.

Other Thoughts: Not all sata cables will last a long amount of time if you are constantly unplugging them and re connecting them. Set it up right the first time and let it be!!!

1 out of 5 eggsTwo Cables Failed after 18 months

Pros: Pretty color. Low price. Latches are secure. Worked fine for ~18 months.

Cons: After ~18 months, I was unable to burn DVD without getting a failure. The problem occurred with *both* my DVD burners (one Blue Ray one Lightscribe DVD). Since I don't use them much, the cables probably didn't fail at the same time.

Other Thoughts: I was having problems burning DVD with *both* my DVD drives, so it seemed like it must be a software problem with Windows or hardware with my motherboard.

Booted to Linux to get better diagnostics, which pointed to occasional "Drive Ready" problems. Swapped cables and motherboard SATA ports between the drives which didn't seem to help. Finally had the bright idea that *both* cables might be bad (because it really looked like a cable problem). Swapping the cables out fixed it!

Staring at the cables, they look pretty well put together. My guess is that connector itself failed somehow. Perhaps the springs lost their springiness or something.

I should probably give these two stars since they're undoubtedly better than other cables out there, but I really don't have much tolerance for bad cables!

5 out of 5 eggsIt's a Cable

Pros: It works and looks cool. Glows if you have lights in your case.

Cons: I guess it would be sweet if the cable itself had LED's in it. Not really a con though.

Other Thoughts: I'd buy more if I needed some.
