4 Port SATA III / II / I  Switch  With KeyLock and LED 6Gbps Compatible

4 Port SATA III / II / I Switch With KeyLock and LED 6Gbps Compatible

Product Review (submitted on June 27, 2015):

I agree with other reviewers.... the manual needs to be redone. You cannot even see the pictures clearly enough to figure out what the intent is. So, here is how to hook up the cables, and the description is valid if you set the device down and look at it from the rear. If you do this then (1) to the far left is the power-out connectors for up to 4 drives. For those 4 the first set of two (against the far left edge) are for drive 2 against the rear edge, and then drive 1 in front of 2, towards the front. The next set of two is for drive 4 and 3, with the drive 4 connector being against the rear edge. Next, to the right, comes (2) a stacked set of two SATA data male connectors with the port for drive 1 on top and that for drive 2 beneath. Then, to the right of those, comes (3) a single male SATA data port for a single SATA cable to interface between the device and your motherboard. Then, to the right of that comes (4) another stacked set of two SATA data male connectors with the port for drive 3 on top, and that for drive 4 beneath. Finally, to the far right comes a single connector for power to come in from the workstation to feed the device and whichever ever single drive you have selected to be active.
