It's a cable. It's red. It worked perfectly out of the box. It's what you need to connect 4 SATA drives to a SAS controller. It's long at 1.0m, yet it was easy to keep the install neat and tidy as the cable is flexible and all four channels lie flat against one another.
The numbering of the connectors seemed to be incorrect as my controller card's bios reported the logical drive numbers differently, which was easily fixed with a sharpie. On second thought that could be the connector on the card having non-standard pin configuration. Who knows?
I've used it with 4 drives in an unRAID build and transferred several TB's of data without issue.
Overall this is a decent cable.
