'buyer beware': don't buy these SFF-8087 cables..

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I bought these 2 SFF-8087 SAS-to-4x SATA cables of ebay.. $10 each, free shipping.. I guess I got what I paid for:

the blue part feels like..... paper wrapped in thin plastic. they are cheap & nasty & both of my cables are 'dead' after..mm..4 months use(?)

just thought I might 'warn' others, don't buy 'em, they are crap.

I'm going with these next:

as u can see the SATA end actually looks like a normal SATA cable. 'nuff said.
