Pros: If these are long enough for your application, then they are good. If not, they will be useless. In most cases other than a really tiny mini-computer, they will not be long enough.
Cons: Too short for most imaginable applications
Other Thoughts: Don't buy these if you are using them for anything other than a really really small desktop computer.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Athena Power Cable-SATA16EPW3 16" Cable
Pros: This isn't the sturdiest SATA power cable splitter I have purchased, however it is sturdy enough. If your drives are oriented in a way that looks difficult for using this product, reverse the plugs (e.g. which drive each of the two plugs goes into) and you will see that this product was intelligently designed and will probably work for you, assuming the cable lengths are adequate.
Cons: I also have the sturdier "Link Depot Model POW-SATA-EXT 16" SATA Power Extension Cable" for sale on this site as item #N82E16812189190. For a dollar more, that one is built to last, however there are situations where you would find that one of these would fit and the other would not. Best to have several of these sorts of things on hand, if you like to tinker; prevents aggravation leading to throwing things.

This review is from: Rosewill RNX-N600UBE Wireless N600 Dual Band USB 2.0 Adapter
Pros: Works. Has antennas you can aim
Cons: Have smaller an no more expensive wireless USB adapters that work better and faster
Other Thoughts: Per earlier reviews on this site, I downloaded the Ralink drivers directly from the Ralink website, which installed nicely and were recognized. I have tested this antenna on 3 different systems located at various distances (from 10 feet to 75 feet, and through walls and floors or not) from my AC 1900 Nighthawk router. The connection speeds typically are reported as from 200 to 260 or 280 mbps. There is a directional component to these speeds which varies in how the movable antennas are oriented, but I have never gotten better than 300 mbps speeds.
In comparison, my little Edimax AC600 tiny USB wireless adapters ($20-25, depending on where you buy them) connect at reported speeds in excess of 400 mbps basically every time. And, in actual use, the playback quality for streaming video is clearly less dependable with this Rosewill adapter than with the Edimax ones.
I don't see the point of dealing with the size requirements of this product when something smaller and cheaper works better.
