1 out of 5 eggsI threw it away.

Pros: Cheap ?

Cons: The cable is WAY too stiff for any practical use.

Maybe if you were going to use your sata drives in the tub/shower you might want this, I don't know, it puts too much strain on connectors and is quite inflexible.

I tossed it out after cutting the connectors off to use for something else.

Other Thoughts: Kind of bummed about this purchase; the pictures looked good, just goes to show though that you can't trust photos.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Exactly what I was looking for.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: With the external power supply for my IDE and SATA to USB 2 converter, I'm able to use this with desktop and optical drives no problem.

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of junk

Pros: None to speak of

Cons: Despite incredibly thick and heavy appearance, it is very poorly assembled. eSATA end developed a bad connection after only a few insertions. Pins literally pulled out of the plug. Cable is solid copper, which makes it very stiff and non suitable for portable use. Thick clear jacket makes it even worse.

Other Thoughts: Since it wouldn't be worth shipping it back, I decided to take this cable apart. I found it was solid copper, not stranded, which is completely inappropriate for a cable of this type. Aside from its stiffness, solid copper is not meant to be flexed repeatedly, so if you use it as a portable cable, it'll eventually break just from rolling and unrolling it.

Also, the connectors are total garbage. They are not crimped or epoxy potted to the cable jacket at all. It's just friction fit pins held together with a piece of masking tape and a plastic snap-together shell around it - which is what caused the pins to pull out on mine: there's nothing holding the connector and cable jacket together.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Cable

Cons: A little $$$, but I like Link Depot products.

4 out of 5 eggsLong and Thick

Pros: Cable is long enough to connect my laptop's eSATA to the internal SATA HDD's in my tower. This is great because now I can backup without having to pull drives or wait forever using a gigabit network connection. Also the cable seems to be of sturdy construction, and well shielded.

Cons: Cable is quite thick and stiff as others have said. (It's about as thick as an old desktop PC power cable.) Maybe this is great since it seems to be of sturdy construction, but I think if they could make this as thin as a USB cable then it would be a 5-egg winner.

Other Thoughts: Looks funny having this huge cable connected to a slim 2.5" laptop HDD.

1 out of 5 eggsLink Depot Really!?!?!

Pros: Comes in an attractive package.

Cons: Could this cable be more stiff? This cable is useless due to its excessive stiffness. It could easily snap off the SATA connector off of your drive.

Other Thoughts: This is the second cable Link Depot® cable purchased and will be the last. The first one suffered the same problem.

5 out of 5 eggsLong, high quality eSATA cable

Pros: Good quality, nice casing, long eSATA cable. Clips into equipment well and is exactly what you need to hook a SATA Hard Drive to an external eSATA port.

Cons: Due to thickness/cable composition, it is a little hard to route it.

Other Thoughts: I've stepped on it a few times and it is no worse for the wear! It would be great if you could get a cheap power adapter bundled with this, as I had to buy a cheap usb to sata kit just for that part!

5 out of 5 eggsLittle on the stiff side

Pros: Length was great, fact that is a round cable and has locking ends, does what a cable is supposed to do. Feels very sturdy like it is built to last.

Cons: Very stiff other than that, nothing really wrong with this cable.
