Performance

If your machine is chock full of drives, fans and pci cards and standard ATA ribbons are making your life hell get these. I have a heavily upgraded beige G3 Macintosh with four hard drives, a CD-RW and Zip (customized case) and lots of fans. These cables have been a lifesaver in terms of airflow, flexibility and toughness - they don't get kinked up and ruined and they're not messy or tough to route. My one complaint is the seals around the top and bottom of each ribbon could be tighter - though this is easily fixed with some fast - bonding glue. I really, really reccomend these for heavily upgraded boxes with lots of drives.

I'm giving this cable full five stars not because it's perfect, but because there is nothing better out there. The 36 inches are divided in the most functional way: from the "board" to "slave" 16 inches and from "slave" to "master" 20 inches. All other 36-inch cables I've seen have the division made 24" and 12" respectively. In a full size case you need the extra inches to run from the "slave" optical drive at the top of the case to the "master" HDD placed somewhere in the bottom. One word of caution when you disconnect the cable: it is not made out of a ribbon, but of 80 individual (VERY THIN!) wires, so don't pull the cable while disconnecting, but use the attached labels. I chose the free shipping and still had the cables delivered in two days. Nice job Buy.com!
