    Has anyone checked out these cables by Gladiator or seen a test/review?

    They are a shielded and grounded design that claim a 15% improvement on read/write speed - sounds good!

    I'd have a hard time believing a 15% increase over a quality round cable.

    Yes indeed, 15% is a big call isn't it! Way too big it seems.

    I found this revue on them:

    That's pretty much what what all rounded cables do. :smokin:

    Is that right?

    I've just ordered a couple of rounded cables!

    Could I possibly see a decrease in performance??

    Can you point me in the right direction for info on this issue?

    How about the meaning of life while I'm on a roll?

    Rounded cables I find are actually only good for cd rom or top mounted hdds - lets face it ide cables fold easier when they are not round ...

    The main idea behind rounded cables is to allow better airflow, not to fold cables :)
