Good price I suppose, but I've worked in IT for about a decade and have never bought SATA cables before.

I am curious. Did you mostly work with rack mounts with hot swaps and few sata cables?

Nah... just general IT/Network Admin/Desktop Tech type stuff. So I worked with tons of desktops, all brands, ranging from back in the P4 days to current. I probably have replaced 1 or 2 sata cables in my life (can't recall...just guessing), but if I did, I snagged one out of another unit.

However, I DO use spare sata cables sometimes for hooking up multiple hard drives to a motherboard for purposes of imaging, extracting data (from partially bad drives), etc. So I can see where something like this would come in handy for people doing lots of imaging or data extraction... but was just noting that I've rarely ever had a cable go bad on me.

Good price, but if you are not careful, you may break the retaining clip.

There is no humble brag unless you think decades of experience is bragging. Their point was after working with thousands of pcs/servers the need to replace a faulty sata cable has almost never come up... In other words if you are buying these as 'replacements' for when yours fail you may never need use them.

Personally if you are building a new pc/server with 10 hard drives you will find this deal useful. While the poster with tons of experience can cannibalize old pcs for their sata cables not everyone can. I will also point out if you never disturb a sata cable it can last forever. If you are fairly often swapping hdds disconnecting and reconnecting these sata cables there is a much better chance of them 'failing'... Which is really just them breaking from being yanked improperly (as in not perfectly released, which is hard to do especially in some tight spaces). I also find value in these being 18 inches. A lot of other options can be shorter and not right angled etc.

So yeah they are right but i think they basically spoke from their own pocket (since they don't have to buy any) and use needs (no idea if they ever bought 10+ oem/external drives they shucked which don't come with the sata cable). Heck when I moved my old desktop to a new case I needed new sata cables because my cannabilized sata cables were too short (as well as I plain did not have enough) and I added 6 more hard drives.

I have never had a surge protector or power strip go bad but I still end up buying new ones once in awhile to meet a new need (slim, has side outlets for wall warts, etc etc etc).

Wasn't intended to come across that way. As (I thought) I implied in my second response, directly above yours, that these things pretty much just never break ("but was just noting that I've rarely ever had a cable go bad on me"). However, I also mentioned that they could be useful for people doing mass imaging/cloning/data recovery/etc... but that's just going to be a niche segment, imo.
