This seems to be a good cable, and is working well for me, but I wish they had specified the length of the 'fan-out' portion. I looked around but did not see that specified.
I had to strip off more of the outer sheathing to be able to get it to reach all of the connectors I was trying to reach. I do not remember exactly how long the fan-out part was, but for me it was a few inches too short. I was impressed by the construction of the cable when I did this -- the outer sheath end had heat-shrink tubing to keep it from coming loose. Inside the outer sheathing was a braid that looked like aluminum and a mylar wrap then the individual cables for Tx/Rx to each of the eSATA connectors.
The cable is fairly flexible, though not extremely so. It routed nicely from the host computer to the external drive bays once I had pulled off a little more of the sheathing to make the fan-out portion longer. All of the connectors are snug fits, so I expect it to stay in place...
Thought it was a great buy but I have already had 3 cables fail with random drives being dropped. Tried swapping ports and cables and can pinpoint it to specific cables on the fanout portion.
I'm using it on one of my NAS boxes on a Supermicro SC743 chassis with SC743 SAS backplane. Since the cables are not so long, it just fits there perfectly, with no lots of cable laying around.
Cable thickness provide great flexibility and helps with the airflow to other motherboard components, since I have 4 intake fans on this chassis.
It is connected to a LSI 9211-8i HBA and so far, no SATA/SAS data errors. I'm very happy with the product.
