1 out of 5 eggsThis actually caught fire.

Pros: Cheap, worked okay until it caught fire.

Cons: I bought this in January 2013, and it caught fire late in 2014. I was lucky enough to be at my computer at the time, noticed the flickering orange light, opened the front of my computer, and saw bright orange flames flowing through the space where I could have put a second optical drive. I turned the computer off at the surge protector and the fire died fast...there was a bit of smoke, and both SATA plugs of the cable were all charred and melted. Power connections on the drives were scorched too, collateral damage--haven't tried to use those drives yet.

If this thing can't safely power two SATA drives from one 4-pin power connection I really have no idea what its raison d'etre is.

1 out of 5 eggsCorrosion Warning!

Pros: Inexpensive.

Cons: Purchased two of these ~ 2 years ago. Used them as extension cables to feed power to 3TB Drive and my SSD. I just took them off to discover the little copper contact wires in the SATA connectors had eaten into both of my drives power connectors and left some white powdery oxidation. I think my SSD is ruined.

Other Thoughts: Will spend more and get higher quality connectors next time.

1 out of 5 eggsMelted

Pros: It worked for a while without melting

Cons: It melted. Thankfully, it was plugged into a DVDRW drive.
Was playing DoTA for about an hour and the fire alarms in my building started going off. "Strange...", I thought to myself. And then I noticed the smell of burning rubber. I unforutunately ate the "disconnect" penalty in my DoTA game and shut my PC off. Later after I aired out my appartment I noticed that this little guy had melted while attached to my DVDRW drive. The DVDRW drive is toast, but I'm very thankful it wasn't hooked up to a hard drive. Do yourself a big favor and stay away from this adapter.

Other Thoughts: It was totally fine before it melted, but if you care about any of the componets in your PC stay away from this product.

1 out of 5 eggsFried

Pros: Simple
Worked as expected, until it blew up.

Cons: Suddenly burned up (inside one of the sata plugs) after about 18 months use. Crashed the computer and spewed smoke, and covered several of my drives in thick sticky soot. Fortunately nothing seems to have been permanently damaged, and in fact the adapter still works even though the one plug looks like the blob of molten plastic it briefly was. But I'm not going to use it again.

5 out of 5 eggsNippon Labs

Pros: Makes One Power Connection Into Two
Takes A Useless Molex Power And Gives Me Two Usable Sata Powers

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Been Using 2 Of These In My Home Server For 10 Months Which Runs 24/7 Without ANY Problems What So Ever. The Server Is Running An Older Psu Which Only Has 2 Sata Power Connectors and 3 Molex connectors.

1 out of 5 eggssmoked after 6 months

Pros: It's a cable - I plugged it in and it worked for 6 months then...

Cons: one day it my HDD made a funny sound then the computer shut down. Smoke began spilling out of the case (tower) and I quickly turned off the power strip it was connected to. upon inspection my main drive had burn marks at the plug but fortunately it and nothing else was damaged. The cable had a small bubble of melted plastic on the top of one SATA connector. Apparently something shorted out in there.

Other Thoughts: With all the positive reviews for this product I thought it would be a safe purchase. I guess I am one of the few that got a lemon.

This might explain why I had two picos die up just a month before it finally burned up.
