Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4
Rated 5 out of 5 by jasonf01 Stable power over 4xHDDs, provided you connect it right.
Used as part of a Silverstone 4x3.5" HDDs into 3x5.25" Bays.
Worked perfectly so far in every combination, but I if youre connecting multiples, remember that the weak link would be the part of the cable that has to run the most current. If you connect these for cable management, they work perfectly but daisy chaining these (or connecting these all on a single cable from the PSU) might cause problems with power cables being pushed beyond their designed specification, and that can cause instability. Bear this in mind when you use these 1-4 adapters and you will think the same (good) things of them as I do.
Used well, they're great for cable management and airflow. Well worth it if you have multiple drives in close proximity.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tipes Very useful cable for tidyness etc
These cables like everything Silverstone make are generally of a high standard. These particular cables are very useful if you have 4 drives in very close proximity to attach - they make cabling a lot easier as the cables are very flexible. That said, the capacitor - which is a nice idea to make voltage reliable and even, is a bit bulky, and sometimes makes life a little difficult if you are short of room, and lets face it the capacitor doesn't do anything for the looks either.
Having said all that - these cables are extremely useful for there intended purpose. My only gripe is that one of these cables shorted out on my system, but I wont blame the cable necessarily as it may have been the drive that shorted out, but this has only happened the once - hence my dropping to 4 stars. I have three of these in my system, and am overall happy to recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MOOTB00T Wrong way round for my system.
I have 6 SSD, 13 Hard Drives and 2 Optical Drives in my system, so this product is ideal for delivering power to each device without exhausting all the cables that came with my power supply.
End connector is quite bulky.
As the connectors go from bottom to top, the end connector finishes half way up the case, this can cause issues if you don't have cables from the power supply that can reach. Spacing between connectors is ok. I Would recommend checking spacing between devices before purchasing.
I have 4 of these in my system and am quite happy. It enables me to isolate the SSDs onto a clean power line and connect the hard drives to their own line.
Overall I found this product very helpful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MBob Good but bulky connector
As it says above, product is good quality but issues I have found are that the connector should be at the other end for use in silverstone cases and should be far less bulky. The whole point of the device is to reduce space/clutter not increase it.
