Review: ATake SATA Cables

Quote
Awhile back we took a look at a couple of ATake rounded IDE cables from Wisetech, and I was rather impressed by their quality and performance.  Now that I finally managed to get my SATA system to work, I can take a look at a set of their SATA cables.

I just ran some numbers today and you pay on average about 4 cents more per gigabyte for SATA.

I think the size of the cable would be better used for External SATA drives than internal ones.

Plus I would agree the 90 degree head is only good for hard drives.

Signal loss I wouldn't think 20" is long enought to degrade a SATA signal. Noise from a PSU or Fan could cause problems with it. Or using the SATA to go out side of the case with a few plug changes. (Asus gives one with the A8V-SLI Delus Mobo), but power drop is expected on all things like that.
