Works well

Pros: All connections work

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Got this for a Norco S8 chassis and ASRock C236 WSI mini-itx FreeNAS build. The Chassis has 8 hot swappable bays with 2 SFF-8087 ports on the backplane and the motherboard has 8 sata ports. Been running for about 5 months now, no lost connection to any drives. So cables are good :D

use with norco 8 bay case

Pros: connects motherboard sata ports to the case backpane

Cons: should have come with the case.

Other Thoughts: These are required to connect your motherboard sata ports to the norco backpanes. Else you will need a host controller with the same connector.

Perfect cable to feed my RAID Expander

Pros: This was just the cable I needed. It is very good quality at a very reasonable price.

Cons: I have been using this cable for several months now, with no problems with connections, speed, or errors.

Other Thoughts: I have an Asus motherboard with a PIKE2008 RAID module (essentially a rebranded LSI 9211-8i in a customer form factor). The addition of the PIKE module activates 8 SATA type sockets on the motherboard (sata/sas compatible, dubbed PSAS). The PIKE2008 card supports up to 256 devices, but if each of the plugs is cabled directly to a SATA hard drive, 8 devices is the most that can be connected. The PIKE2008 module does not have any external connectors to attach to an expander/backplane (unlike the traditional PCI card from LSI). Keep in mind the PIKE version was fraction of the cost of the traditional PCI card.

Using one of these NORCO reverse breakout cables, I was able to create a link between my PIKE2008 RAID module and Intel RAID Expander Board RES2SV240 (plugging the cable into 4 of the PSAS motherboard plugs and into one of the 6 SFF-8087 on the expander). This allows me to use forward breakout cables in the other 5 SFF-8087 port on the expander to attach 20 sata devices + 4 devices using the other 4 PSAS ports on the motherboard. (Or using 2 of these cables I can create 2 lanes to the expander for higher speed access to 16 forward broken out devices).

I know my review has gone far beyond the quality of the cable itself, but I wanted to share how I was making use of this cable in case other shoppers found themselves in a similar situation and wondering if this cable would do the job. A reverse breakout cable like this meets the needs of a very specific situation that is not always easily understood, so I hope this can be helpful.

Okay 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.

Works 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.
