I'm sold on sSATA and wont buy a computer that doesn't have an eSATA port (which is a shame for these current day computer manufacturers, who prefer to not include them). eSATA only provides an external connection for a SATA hard drive and you can NOT connect any other device to it. Having said that, if you do use an sSATA port to connect your external SATA hard drives, you'll not have to share eSATA's either 3gb/sec or 6gb/sec transfer speed with any other SATA drive that you've connected to your computer through this port, as you have to with USB connections - eSATA does NOT daisy chain as USB does. A 3gb/sec speed is achieved if you connect the controller to a PCI expansion slot and 6gb/sec (which could even be multiplex) if you connect the controller to a PCIx expansion one.
Because these ill-advised manufacturers are no longer prepared to offer these superior external connections, most Thunderbolt PCIx control cards include as well as a USB-C port, an eSATA port as standard and for this reason alone, I'd most favourably recommend you spending the extra money needed to purchase one. With USB-C speeds approaching 40gb/sec and able to connect numerous SATA hard drives with their dedicated sSATA ports, all of which CAN ONLY reach a speed of 6gb/sec - even if the transfer speed of the port was to be considerably more, has got to be the best possible choice anyone can make because, as it seems to this reviewer, adding a SATA hard drive to a USB port, when these can work through another, would be a most foolish enterprise because all you're going to do by doing this is reduce the speed the USB port can provide your other equipment.
However the connectors are shite and easily disconnect from the laptop end (The External HDD doesn't move so this isn't an issue for that end).
Now from what I can tell, most users use this cable in permanent locations (between desktops and storage units, so they will never have to move, but as a laptop users, I find the ease of which this cable falls out exasperating.
Cannot fault cable quality or performance.
This is a cable to have around if eSATA file transfer (say, for disk upgrade, external file backup, etc.) is a necessity, with its added benefits of generous length and very fast transfer rate support up to 6 Gbps.
i would buy these again
