1 out of 5 eggs Poor construction. 07/25/2014

This review is from: OKGEAR OK18A3RUB11 18" Straight To Straight W/ Metal Latch SATA 3.0 Cable

Pros:

Ok let's start off with the obvious

These cables look great. When you buy sata cables, you pretty much buy whatever looks great and suits your needs. And boy do these things look great!

Pretty much all sata cables internals are the same, the only thing thats different is what it connects to.

Cons:

You would think that buying a rounded cable would make things look better or even make things easier, WRONG.

these things are not only extremely stiff, but the rounded cable doesn't actually help whereas flat cables can bend easily around things like your motherboard tray

They also don't work. I bought 2 of these, and both of these gave me a ton of read errors at the begining, and while some data was accessible, it wouldn't let me do things like crystal disk mark with these cables meaning it's not a good connection to the sata port.

Other Thoughts:

If only these would work. I'm going to stick to my flat black sata cables from now on. Spending $4 a cable to have them the exact opposite of what i was expecting, and to not work?
