eSATA provides more performance than current solutions and is hot-pluggable. You can now utilize shielded cable lengths up to 2 meters outside the PC to take advantage of the benefits the SATA interface brings to storage.
SATA is now out-of-the-box as an external standard, with specifically defined cables, connectors, and signal requirements. With eSATA, you get a robust and user-friendly external connection with high performance and cost-effective expansion storage. SATA 3.0 compatible with transfer rates up to 6 Gbps!
Rated 5 out of 5 by wilgrfx from Works great however...Works great for connecting external eSATA devices. Good construction as I've alway found with CablesToGo cables. Better shielding and cable diameter is an advantage... giving me piece of mind so that I don't worry about external interference and knowing it will last a very long time. The *only* thing I didn't like was buying a 6ft cable instead of 3ft. This was *my fault*... in not actually measuring the distance first. The shorter 3ft would have been *only* OK. Wish I'd found a 4ft selection. I will probably go ahead and purchase the shorter 3ft cable to use also. I'm currently connecting to a port on the *front* of the tower.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Wes from Great cable with proper connectorsEsata cables have a problem. Since their inception, many brands are plagued with shortened connectors which have caused many a dropped connection and unreliability in general because the cable cannot be pushed all the way in. This cable does not suffer from that malady. The connectors are long enough to lock into just about any Esata port (except for ones on the back of motherboards, which have a layer of padding over them). The connector could be a little longer to facilitate connections into ports with padding over them, but overall I'm glad I found this cable and I highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dave21 from Works very wellVery good tranfer rate for 2m cable: 15 gig file at constant 80-95MB/sec just under 2.75 minutes on ((SATA 3 Gbit/s to E-SATA 3 Gbit/s)) both Raid-0. Cable is less stiff and more flexible then most but still needs improvement. Same for the cable ends, wish there was a stronger non-brittle material so that the ends wouldn't chip away and break off like all the rest but only time will tell if this cable stands the test. Great so far

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rogerdodger from Great price and qualityI use Esata for all my media drives. I would have given 5 stars if made in the USA.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Don from "Okay - so far"I had very spotty performance with the 6 ft. counterpart of this cable. From things I've read, lengths of eSata cables over 3 ft. can be problematical. Another reported problem is the length of contact portion of plug(s). My 6 ft. cable seemed okay but after using it for a few months, it kept dropping the connection to an external Hard Drive; a couple of those times were in the middle of a backup - aaaargh! So far the 3 ft. cable seems to be doing fine. Time will tell if it becomes flaky later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jetlag from Quality ShowsThe cable performance is exactly as advertised. It is functional, reliable and inexpensive. You can't ask for more than that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tight Stack from Cables work just fineI ordered two eSata cables and that is just what I received. The cables work and I am off to other matters. I use the cables to connect home and office eSata docking stations.
