5 out of 5 eggsPretty

Pros: Works well and looks "different", easy to isolate system drive from other devices when getting crowded case.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I like that it's round, has locking plugs, like the color, like the 1 side 90 degree angle. Price is OK too.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible disappointment

Pros: They transfer data.

Cons: Cables are not UV reactive. The color name is misleading. The cable housings are huge and cannot be used with stacked SATA connectors. The cables have very rigid plastic, and don't bend very easily. Inside of a HTPC case, they are a lot of trouble to fit well. Overall, had I known how difficult and wasteful these cables were to begin with, I would have simply stuck with the ugly SATA cables that came with my mobo.

Other Thoughts: The most pressing issue is the oversize connector housing. If this were corrected they would at least be usable.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat When You don't Break Them!

Pros: Allows mad speeds with no cross talk!

Cons: SATA plug can break off connectors inside assembly when too much stress is applied. for instance inside a cramped HTPC case . but had a spare so no harm done outside the cash I'm out for my impatience.

Other Thoughts: If your working in tight spaces I would look for stubbed connectors but otherwise be sure to route cables in different directions for instance one to the side and another up.

3 out of 5 eggsOKGEAR round SATA cable

Pros: nice looking and it works better than what I had.

Cons: if you plan on using more than one of these round cables think twice, as already stated by others, the straight connector side has a huge round collar where it connects to the cable which makes it VERY hard to connect two of these side by side on my motherboard. They stick into the motherboard at an angle like a "V".

Other Thoughts: even with it sticking into the motherboard at an odd angle it works better than what I had so ... oh well.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap and Works

Pros: It's cheap.
It looks beautiful with blue case lighting.
Right angle saved me some space around the VGA.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Bottom line, the thing works, and that's all I really need for it to do.

4 out of 5 eggsOK

Pros: Does what it's supposed to do.

Cons: A little bit stiff.

Other Thoughts: It does mechanically lock to the mating connector fairly well. However even at it's best SATA connectors have always been a little fragile.

3 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: Well Made, Nice Looking. They appear to be of good quality. I got these 18" cables as well as a set of 6"

Cons: Another reviewer stated that these cables didn’t play well with stacked Sata connectors, so I emailed Okgear to see if they had rectified the situation. I was told “problem connector is from old version”, sadly this was not true. The protrusion on the straight connector forces them to plug into the MoBo connector at an angle

Other Thoughts: The problem was correctable, I simply ground down the protrusion, but I didn’t want to nor should I of had to OKgear

3 out of 5 eggsDo NOT get the round cables if you have stacked SATA connections

Pros: Good quality SATA 3 cable. Works as expected and looks good doing it. Wish I didn't have to stop using them.

Cons: Round cables look nice but with the OKGEAR cables it makes the connector flair out. This caused issues with installation on my Mobo that has stacked SATA connections like I believe just about all Mobo are now using. I was still able to install them but the cables are pushing pretty hard into each other and stressing the Mobo connectors. I'm buying flat cables to replace the 8 round cables I have. If you your SATA controller has stacked SATA connections which I think just about everything does I would stay away from the round cables.

Other Thoughts: I think OKGEAR needs to rethink these cables and flatten the ends so they are compatible with stacked SATA connections. Also they should have a warning on where these can be used. The quality of the cables is very good however so if you don't need to stack the cables then go for it. I'll be sticking with OKGEAR but getting the flat cables with the flat connectors.
