1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't Fit !

Pros: None

Cons: The plastic shoulder of the right angle connector is too wide to allow the cable to fit properly next to a SATA power connector on a disk drive. If you plug the power connector into the drive first, you can't get the data connector on this cable to fit next to it. If you plug the data connector first and then the power connector, you can do it, but the power connector forces the data connector to the side, tilting it out slightly and stressing the connector on the disk's circuit board. This risks damaging your disk drive.

Measured with a micrometer, the plastic shoulder is about 0.05" too wide compared to a cable that fits properly.

I have other flat OKGEAR cables that do fit correctly. This cable is is constructed with round wire.

Other Thoughts: DON"T buy this cable!!!!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Exactly what I was looking for in a SATA cable:

SATA III (actually SATA III, not dubiously labeled as SATA II yet rated to 6 gb/s like some of the cables on Newegg)
Black
Round cable
Straight to right angle
metal latches on both connecters
18" (perfect size to connect everything in a Mid-ATX case)
Not made by Rosewill

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I had no problem stacking these cables' connectors in my SATA controller.

Note, if you have a HDD at the lowest possible position in your case you'll have a MUCH easier time with a straight to left angle connector. For everything else this cable is perfect.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Cables

Pros: The round cable design is much easier to work with and route then the flat cable design. The latches really do work and make a good connection to both drive and motherboard.

Cons: None for me, although I think the cables are more like 17" long rather then a full 18".

Other Thoughts: I did not have a problem "stacking" these connectors into the motherboard SATA ports as others have mentioned. This is a much better design then what OKgear tried to do a few years back which were horrible. Would buy these again.

5 out of 5 eggsHigh quality build

Pros: Personally, I prefer round cables over flat because you can bend them however you like, and they still retain the same appearance.

Nice metal clips which ensure that your connection doesn't come loose.

Cons: Tad pricey, but it very good quality.

2 out of 5 eggsNice, but way to bulky.

Pros: This cables have a very nice build quality.

Cons: I was unable to plug two drives in to adjacent SATA III connectors because the connector was very bulky. You could take a razor knife to the extra rubber and it would probably work.

Other Thoughts: These cables are great as long as they are plugged in side-by-side or you only have one drive. Just be aware you can't stack them.

Also of note, if you are buying a board with SATA III it may already come with SATA III cables. I purchased ASUS P8P67 (REV 3.0) and it came with FOUR SATA cables, two SATA III and two SATA II. So I didn't even need these.

4 out of 5 eggsIt does the job

Pros: - Decent price
- I like the 90 degree angle
- SATA3 is fast

Cons: - I think I needed something longer

Other Thoughts: It is just what it says. The cable is solid, the product seems fine. However I can literally hook up a different cable and get different speeds during speed test, I've done it several times back and forth. It's pretty weird.

I got two of the same cables. The difference isn't enough for me to return them, just awkward. Cost it one egg. Otherwise great product.
