A Closer Look:
Here we see the cable as it was packaged. On a cosmetic note, the cable is rather nice looking, simple yet functional.
On the SATA end of the cable we have a nice and firm SATA power and data clip. The clip “pops” nicely when attached to a drive and forms a good secure connection. I would definitely still hold the drive as it is plugged in, however the connector is secure enough to keep the drive plugged in properly while in use.
There isn’t really all that much to speak on at the USB 3.0 side of the cable.
The bottom line: this device is deadly simple, SATA connectors on one end – USB 3.0 on the other. Talking about the style or design of a device like this is pretty much useless, to that end lets see our video review.
