I bought this extra eSATA cable to go with a Western Digital DVR Expander even though the DVR Expander comes with a USB cable and an eSATA cable included. I had read in other customer comments on other external hard drive products that the included cables are usually "garbage". For the extra couple of bucks I ordered this cable along with the DVR Expander. I'm sure glad I did. The eSATA cable included would not plug into the DVR Expander or the back of the DVR, obviously from ill-fitting plugs. But this "3 feet Shielded External eSATA Cable M/M" fit perfectly and works beautifully. Good product and good reason to encourage honest customer comments. Thanks, Amazon!

This cable is very easy to conect, brings inmediate speed boost vs standard SATA1 cables or USB - Firewire interfaces. In one word: FAST!!!

Some facts:
If you have an IDE or SATA1 Hard Drive you will not notice the advantages of the speeds reachable with this cable.
To fully appretiate the true potential of a SATA2 or eSATA2 cable you MUST have at least two SATA2 hard drives that run at 3.0Gb/s both.

So if your external drive is SATA2 and your internal drives are SATA1 or IDE you will notice no difference in time transfers as you should with 2 SATA 2 drives.

From my HDD (Seagate SATA1) to a external SATA2 Drive a 4.88GB File was transfered through this eSATA cable in 6 minutes, 42 secs.
Same file through USB 2.0 cable was transferred in 5 minutes, 48 secs.

In other computer same file through 2 SATA2 Hard drives, one internal and one external using this cable, was transferred in 3 minutes, 19 secs.

So, change to SATA2 and wellcome to the almost SCSI speeds world!!

So far so good. Have connected two external eSATA drives side-by-side using 6 ft. external shielded eSATA cables and they're working great. I use them for DV standard video capture and editing and have had no problems with data throughput.

This cable appears to be well shielded and has good length for the price. The only drawback would be the inflexible nature of the cable, making it difficult to use with a desktop replacement/notebook. If you have a desktop setup then the cable would be perfect since it would remain in nearly the same orientation but it is difficult to get the cable to change directions otherwise.

If you need eSATA cable then do get this one as it is a higher quility than those that come with some enclosures or devices. Other than that, nothing special

Just be aware that eSATA does not carry power, only data - something i didn't know about previously. Therefore, for my external 2.5 inch drive, I had to also connect the USB cable simultaneously so it got power, which is kind of funny. That doesn't mean there is anything wrong with this cable. It worked perfectly.

Also, I have no complaints about cable rigidity or the cable coming out like others have mentioned. It seems fine to me.

What consumers get charged for cabling of all sorts borders on the criminal. It costs next to nothing to manufacture, yet most most stores want to charge you 30, 40, 50 dollars or more for the simplest cable, justifying it by solemnly warning that buying anything "inferior" will degrade performance, etc. And that's a load of B.S. Reality is that unless you're stringing together supercomputers, a basic no-name cable works just fine.

And that brings us to this. No fancy clam-shell package. No marketing burden. No gold plated anything. Just a simple six foot eSata cable in a plain plastic bag. And yes, it works just fine to play HD/Blu-Ray movies and programs off an external drive through a 64 bit Windows 7 computer and on to a 1080p big screen. No jitters. No pixelation. Nice and smooth.

This is a very good value for the money and kudos to Amazon and the manufacturer/reseller for offering up a bit of tech sanity.

First, I purchased from Amamax seller.
When I got it and it came with plastic bag and a "ESATA6" sticker on it (NO company name & nothing else). So, I looked on a cable label and then I found out that cable is NOT made by StarTech.

Why don't you look your cable brand name? It is "KEEN TOP" on a cable white label printed. It won't help your cable transfer speed rate of up to 6Gb/s. Most "KEEN TOP" brands are only transfer rate of up to 3Gb/s.
So, I asked this seller to send me the right item and they did, gave me one for free replacement.

I want to beware you, DO NOT buy this cable from any sellers rather than from Amazon seller.

Now, I got two cables, one from StarTech and one from Amazon seller (Amamax sent me the right item). Check out my picture. I uploaded pictures there already.
I'm very happy to talk with StarTech representative and they are really nice and good customer service.
