The only issue I encountered may actually be due to my SAS RAID card, but the numbered stickers on the cable were backwards. Cable 1 was actually port 4 on my card so I advise anyone using these cables to confirm their port ordering and use their own numbering stickers instead.
The FIRST delivery had 1 of 2 items with cables in a completely inter-twined mess to the point where the cables could not be adequately separated for installation. A definite manufacturing issue - or at least an obvious QA/QC shortfall. Imagine this... Each breakout cable has two smaller cables connected at both ends. The first assembled breakout cable would form a "loop". Then imaging constructing the next breakout cable having one of the two smaller cables go through the "loop" formed by the first breakout cable. The result is interconnected loops - like a chain. Next, imagine running one of two smaller cables for the third breakout cables RANDOMLY though the interlocked loops of the first two. The mess is starting to form, but it gets better - do that same thing again with the fourth breakout cable. It was a real mess - almost as if the technician building it was showing off their sense of humor. A robotic construction could not possible have screwed it up that bad.
Kudos to Amazon for immediately handling the return/replacement process with the usual relative ease... Keep reading, we not done!
Here we are 16 MONTHS LATER, I am experiencing a problem with the RAID...very odd things logged, not a typical HDD fail scenario. I wont bore you with those details. In troubleshooting, I swap 2 of the breakout cables (1 from each RAID channel on the controller) to see if my problem stays with the drive or follows the breakout cable connection. I get the same errors logged, on the same RAID channel, on the same port. Have you figured out the problem? The manufacturer installed labels on the breakout cables were wrong. Ports labelled 1, 2, 3, and 4 ....well they really weren't as labelled.
And if that's not bad enough, BOTH breakout cable items order appear to be labelled incorrectly - in different ways. I guess the port labels are a cosmetic benefit and are not really meant to identify ports 1-4 when connected.
If there is a silver lining to be found, at least the cables worked.
I bought one from Cable Matters and one from VANDESAIL. Quality-wise they appear to be identical.

These are pretty stiff, though - like springs. This can be good if you arrange them right, as they'll stay out of the way on their own...Read more
