2 out of 5 eggsOkay quality

Pros: Works great, SATA ports to Norco RPC 4220 backplane....

Cons: 3rd SATA port cable causes massive number of read error, and just recently gave out. And 4th SATA port cable has recently become unstable, to the point that it is likely the cause of the BSODs on my system (sudden device disconnect)

Naturally, right outside of the warranty period....

Other Thoughts: Between the bad cable, and the failed slot on one of the backplanes in my Norco RPC-4220..... I'm not sure I feel confident in their brand.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks fine.

Pros: I had purchased one of these years ago. I have a motherboard with 6 SATA 6Gb/s ports.... I mirror my OS drives and put this cable on the other four to drive a multilane row of disk drives in my server. (The rest are handled by a SAS expander and SAS Controller)

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsJust the right length

Pros: Just long enough to reach from backplane to main board headers.

Cons: None really. The cables fan out RIGHT at the SFF-8087 connector. The "made in china" label is keeping the bundle together a bit in the photos.

Other Thoughts: The Norco case is made for a very large main board. I was worried the sata ends would not reach. There is just enough room to bend the cables down out of the way, but not enough run them along the bottom of the case.

3 out of 5 eggsSFF8087-4S

Pros: New egg as always was outstanding.

Cons: Did not work. Sometimes you just get bad eggs

Other Thoughts: Tested out both ports on raid card and could not get them to see hard drives. Used my spare SFF in either port and saw all hard drives...

5 out of 5 eggsWork's fine.

Pros: I have 6 Norco cases and use a number of these and never had a problem.

Cons: Doesn't come in purple.

Other Thoughts: I don't understand how someone can give this 1 star
because they didn't research the type of cable needed
for thair application (forward or reverse). When used to aggregate 4 SATA ports into one SFf-8087 connector
so that discrete ports can be plugged into a backplane this is tho cable to get. Use a forward cable for Norco RPC-4020 and reverse for 4220 or 4224.

1 out of 5 eggsWarning: Do not buy for connection to SFF-8087 raid controllers

Pros: Cheapest on newegg

Cons: I learned after the fact that the description of "REVERSE" breakout is critical. It seems these are NOT reversible.

ONLY purchase this with a Norco-like case that has a SFF-8087 backplane and you have SATA connections on your controller.

Without knowing this, mine didn't work at all. I had to read reviews on another site to learn this only after it didn't w

5 out of 5 eggsThink before you purchase

Pros: Great cable and simply works.

Cons: Lack of metal clips on SATA ends. Not that big of a con since I won't be messing around inside of the case too often but I prefer SATA cables to have metal clips. Strange thing is that the mini-SAS side has a metal clip so why not do both sides?

Other Thoughts: Please think before you purchase your items. This is a reverse breakout cable. Like others have mentioned this goes from your motherboard's SATA connections to your SAS back-plate.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked like a charm

Pros: Worked perfect on the first try.

Cons: none... For all you readers, if you look at all the negative 1 egg reviews, their problem is that they bought the wrong cable, not that the cable didn't work.

Other Thoughts: I got this cable for building my home file server, running FreeNAS 8, using the Norco RPC-4220 case and other awesome parts. I'm going to buy the expansion cards that are straight SFF8087 from card to backplane, but for the first initial four drives, I am using this REVERSE breakout to use the ports on the Motherboard directly to connect the first backplane.

Best Advice is to fully research what you are doing and what you need for that task.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Reverse Breakout Cable

Pros: Excellent affordable Reverse Breakout Cable. This cable will allow you to connect motherboard SATA ports TO a SFF 8087 backplane.

Cons: None, only con would be if you didn't know the purpose of this cable.

Other Thoughts: Some of the others posting negative feedback here are non-techies and frankly dont know what this is. (they should really have tech knowledge stars set to 0 permanently)

This cable is NOT a straight SFF8087 to SATA. So this cable will NOT work if you try and connect hard drives to a controller card with it.

This cable IS a reverse breakout cable. Meaning you can go from discreet SATA ports (on any motherboard or add-in) to a BACKPLANE!!!
