Worked great! the best cables and connections

As other reviews have mentioned, once you have unplugged WD external drives and the 3rd pin (3.3V ) need to unplug pin. Just add this extension to the chain and you're done.

Pros
  • Brilliantly done
Cons
  • Some issues

Went like clockwork.

Required for a small form factor desktop computer I had to install a second hard drive in it. Went like clockwork. The only wish I have is that there would be more time to put the second SDD in a better place, but other than that it worked great. Would definitely buy them again.

Pros
  • Useful for other than its intended purpose
Cons
  • I won't say anything

The SATA power extension cable saved the day!

I installed an SSD in a Dell desktop computer. The SATA power cables weren't long enough to connect to the SSD and a full-size SATA hard drive. This SATA power strip did the job beautifully and easily.

Pros
  • I'm holding my fists
Cons
  • not sure

Great for work

I bought a new computer that needed an extra drive. The included SATA power cable connected to the motherboard and was quite short. It just stretched to connect to the new drive. This extension cable allowed me to connect the hard drive to a power source without straining the included power strip. Now I worry a lot less about the SATA power cable that came with the PC breaking.

Pros
  • Works for many
Cons
  • Expensive

Works with drives removed

Works very well. I've used these to connect to Western Digital 12TB drives from an Easystore case as they don't have an orange cable (3.3V) so they worked fine with the drive.

Pros
  • Great price
Cons
  • Empty

Works great to solve SATA power connector problem

There have been changes to the SATA power cable specification and some geniuses decided that they should take a regular VCC connector and ground it to put the drive into sleep mode . This disables this pin and allows the drive to remain active. Many people say this only affects corporate drives, but I haven't found this to be the case. Changing the power supply can also cause this behavior, so it's a big mess.

Pros
  • Certified
Cons
  • Requires socket

Enough length for external GPUs

I bought these to use external GPUs for cryptocurrency mining operations. The SATA power cable inside the case wasn't long enough to extend outside the case and I needed something to get the "last mile" to the GPU riser (the board that connects the external GPU). This cable was the perfect length and easy to install. Since it's being used outdoors, I use a thin cable tie to secure the extension cable to the SATA power connector on the PSU so it doesn't accidentally come loose.

Pros
  • Worth the money
Cons
  • No insurance

Good for a quick fix.

Upon opening the envelope, the item came with a black piece of plastic that fell on the table. Then when I pulled out the plastic bag with the item, another small piece of plastic fell out of the bag. When examining objects, small pieces broke off the end of the connector (male) of the adapter. Thank God I have two other good adapters in good condition. Overall satisfied but disappointed I can only use 2 out of 3 adapters.

Pros
  • This 15-pin Power SATA extension cable is used to extend the SATA power supply and connects the computer power supply to Serial ATA hard drives, SSDs, optical drives, DVDB burners and PCI cards. This 3-pack SATA extension cable allows you to directly connect or extend your existing SATA cable.
Cons
  • Socket required

Works but not exactly what I need

Overall the products themselves are acceptable and it's really hard to beat the price on all three, but I think it's important to clarify a few things for potential buyers.1. The cable itself is only about 6 inches long. The 8 inches mentioned is the total length of the item, with the two ends taking up about 2 inches of the total length. It's very easy to daisy chain, and because it runs smoothly, you don't have to worry about angles when routing cables (if you intend to use this for your ownโ€ฆ

Pros
  • Easy plug and play installation with tight and secure connections. Hot-swapping is not supported (the power must be off when replacing the power cord).
Cons
  • No performance
