cheap sata cables?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I need some sata cables, and was wondering whether there would be any huge quality differences between

and something like
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812119368

$0.65 per cable sounds great, but I would rather pay $2.49 each if the cheaper ones would cause potential issues.
P.S. i have Shoprunner free 2-day shipping, so shipping price is no problem

Two words: Newegg Coboc

I bought some of these and used the Shoprunner 2-Day free shipping, they are an absolute steal. And they work just fine. I recently used one in a build for a friend.

Just watch the descriptions. I bought Red, and ended up with a Pink UV Red cable. But for like .59 cents and free shipping, I cannot complain.

Due to the box nature of the ends they will look a little better when you shrink them but otherwise you will not notice any difference.

I like the Rosewill (Newegg's house brand) SATA data cables, the mini style are exactly like the Akasa ones with a thin ribbon that can be cut to size. Plus they are priced better.....
