I bought to fit a SATA 3 SSD in my machine.

It has an L-shaped connector on the drive end.

The 'retention' clip doesn't really work as you can pull the cable out without pressing it.

The cable looks great in UV blue and seems to do a reasonable job at good speeds.

Be aware that 0.5m isn't very long at all! I know this sounds obvious but unless your drive is very close to the SATA ports on your motherboard then you should go for a 1.0m version as you don't realise how much length you lose wrapping it around other cables or trying to tidy it out of the way.

I did not buy these for their UV ability but simply because they looked well made and would help to identify my SATA 3 disks -
Pros -
1. They are blue
Cons-
1. Very inflexible cable - makes it difficult to route around PC case and impossible to fit to SSD's at the bottom of your HDD/SSD rack
2. The retention clip doesn't work at all on any of my drive or motherboard connections
3. The head of the plug end seems slightly oversized so is difficult to push home and because there is no retention clip or other clear 'connect' feedback you are left wondering if the cable is properly attached

Looks like standard flat cables should be a better bet.

I bought four of these, together with two of the 1m length, to connect my two internal RAID1 arrays and other drives to an Asus RIVE motherboard.

The cables are very high quality, with good shielding, but at the expense of some flexibility (although I did not find that an issue).

For me, the retention clip on the 'L' shaped connector worked fine with WD velociraptor and Seagate 3TB drives, but the M/B end is a little too thick to easily fit two cables into the dual socket motherboard Sata connectors, and the straight end doesn't have a retaining clip. The 'interference fit' does at least partially make up for the lack of a retention clip, but I can understand why other reviewers are unhappy with this aspect of the cable.

My main reason for the 3 star rating is that the cables have an absolutely negligible UV blue effect, only noticeable in darkness and if you put a UV tube directly adjacent to them. Strangely, the 1m versions are much better, though still not the best UV effect I've seen.

I'm not sure I can advise anyone to buy these cables until the UV effect is fixed, and they have working retention latches on BOTH ends - I may well go back to the standard SATA 6GB/S cables supplied with the motherboard which do at least have working latches at both ends!

• Straight 7-pin to right angle 7-pin with securing latch
• New NCQ streaming compliant for high quality audio and video

I bought this cable for a new rig im putting together with all blue hardware so blue cables was a must for me even though the UV does not work that good i used a bank note UV light tester to see if it did glow but the ends do not glow only the silver foil inside the cable glows a bit. But as iv got the cool blue sharkoon 2 in 1 light kit that is more lighter blue than i would of liked the cable looks great as it shines though the clear blue plastic, another good think is the L shape connector on the HDD end that i needed with the securing latch that someone said did not work as they could still pull the cable off, well you cannot pull the cable off that i got on the HDD end or the mobo end but would of like to have the securing latch on the other end as well. All in all a great cable with very good speed and now iv just ordered 2 more.

These cables have a nice feel to them not that the feel matters. You can see that there are a lot of strands to the cable itself which is all important for the higher data rate. The clips at each end work well and an experimental tug showed the cables were held fast.

This is an excellent cable which arrived astonishingly quickly. The 50 cm reach is particularly useful and the fact that it is a round cable enables one to neatly tuck it in, over and under other wiring and components. The colour is neither here nor there - any other colour would do as it is inside the cabinet. It beats the ubiquitous flat Sata cables. I would recommend this cable to anyone in need of a Sata cable for a DVD or HDD drive. I received this cable as part of Amazon's after sales service, which I can only commend. Their on-line chat function is very competent and the customer service people are empowered to actually DO something about the problem. Other companies can learn from Amazon.
