Works, but needs better packaging and needs instructions included. TL;DR: So it works and solved my issue of the HD not being detected. Needs better packaging and instructions.So, my mid-2012 MBP decided one day to stop detecting the HD. Tried it in another machine and it's detected. Tried another drive in the MBP, no dice. Either bad sata ribbon or bad logic board. Took a risk on $10.It came packaged in a padded envelope (the manilla with bubble wrap kind), not an anti-static bag or anything stiff to keep it from accidental bending. Didn't affect mine but still. Also, no instructions included, but there are a ton of instructions and videos online. Basically, you have to fold it in certain places so that it properly wraps around the edges inside. The other tricky part is the removal of the old one where it connects to the IR sensor and the notification LED. Seriously, watch a video or two beforehand. But the product itself is awesome and saved me from spending $300+ on a new board or $800+ on a new laptop. 5The perfect life-support for my Mid-2012 13" MacBook Pro One night I packed up my MacBook Pro - a Mid-2012 13-inch A1278 model - and came home from work. I took it out of my backpack and intended to burn a CD from iTunes when I found my computer stuck at a complete stop, hampered by the cursed spinning beach ball of death. I did a hard shut down and reboot to try to rectify the situation and I came upon something I'd never seen before - a folder blinking with a question mark instead of the usual startup tone and Apple symbol. Suddenly, my Mac no longer saw there was a hard drive in my computer.Fearing the worst had happened and my hard drive crashed, I took it out and put it into a USB SATA enclosure and not only could I see it on another computer, but I could boot to the drive from USB on the very Mac that could just not see this drive existed. When I perused the web for solutions, I came upon the fact that many of this era's MacBook Pros (and maybe other models) had experienced failing SATA cables, and replacing it would bring my Mac back to life. So I researched which one I needed and read up on the reviews and I arrived at this model. I ordered it on a Friday and it arrived on Sunday - for which I say "God bless Amazon and the beleaguered United States Postal Service" for not making me suffer through an entire Mac-less weekend.This part is likely not Apple OEM, but it's damn near perfectly identical. When you take the old cable out - which takes some doing because of how many twists and turns it take inside the guts of the MacBook - you realize why these cables probably fail so often. They bend at 90 degree angles and route themselves over a vibrating optical drive and under a hot and vibrating hard drive. That said, this cable arrives totally flat, leaving you to do some of the folding upon install. The cable is, like I said, pretty much identical. It features a SATA logic board connection on one end and a SATA data/power connection for the drive on the other end. It also features a little off-shoot cable for the IR blaster that adheres (with a provided sticky pad) to the front of the Mac next to the status light). I didn't shoot a video of the install process, but there are plenty of them online that walk you through the process - which is a lot easier than you think it may be. In fact, the only snag I ran into with this install is partially stripping one of the tiny screws that held the old cable in place on removal of the old cable. I managed to wrestle the old cable out and get the stripped screw out with a needle nose pliers but it didn't survive. Installing the new cable was a breeze.Once the new cable was in, my trusty MacBook Pro sprang back to life like nothing ever happened. I don't have an IR remote to test out the IR blaster on this cable to make sure that functionality works, but I assume it does.Overall I'm extremely pleased with this purpose. I can pretty much guarantee this cable will save you tons of money versus taking it to Apple or a repair shop to fix, and if you can man a tiny screwdriver, you can replace this cable. 5If you've ever replaced a screen on your iPhone, then you are more than qualified to replace this cable. Seriously, it's much easier and only took 15 minutes. **Be sure to follow the step-by-step instructions on the ifixit website. They're easy to find. And, you'll need a tiny phillips head screwdriver and a spudger (both are tools out of an iPhone screen replacement kit...if you don't have them, ask your friends. I'm sure you know someone who has replaced their screen and still has their tools. I kept mine for instances like these).I have a late 2011 Macbook Pro, model A1278, that gave me the flashing folder with a ? when I tried to boot it up earlier this week. That means it can't find the startup disk. So, I booted up in recovery mode and opened Disk Utility. No drive to be found. Took my computer to a friend's house, and ran Disk Warrior. That didn't work, either. We pulled the drive out and hooked it up to another computer of his. It started spinning right away. The drive was fine. WHEW! The next step was to try replacing this cable. For $11, it's worth it to not have to take it somewhere and pay their bench fee just for them to tell you what's wrong with it, let alone pay them to fix it. 5Hard-drive cable worked flawlessly. So out of nowhere, my MacBook Pro (mid-2012) gave me a blinking gray screen with a folder and a question mark on the screen. I did some googling and found out that the problem was the hard-drive cable. I wanted to get it fixed asap so I took it to micro center (Apple authorized technicians) and told them what the exact problem was. They wanted to keep my laptop for few days and charge me $40 just to open it up and then they would change depending on what the problem was. I didn't' want to wait so I ended up ordering this part based on youtube video on how to fix the problem. After I received the problem my friend and I opened up the laptop based on a video we watched on youtube and fixed my laptop and behold the problem was the hard-drive cable. I am very happy with this product because it fixed my laptop.Update: As o Aug. 16, 2017This hard-drive cable has no issues at all. I am using my MacBook as we speak. I haven't had any problems with this whatsoever.Update: May, 2018I am so so glad I bought this product. My MacBook is still going. 5Works like a charm! I ordered this when my friend's computer continued to have hard drive read failures. After replacing her hard drive three times, we found that a probable solution was the hard drive connector cable. At under $8, we decided it was worth seeing if this could fix her computer. Upon arrival, I immediately put this into her computer along with a new SSD (she needed a boost in performance, so we went ahead and upgraded the hard drive, again). Since starting up the computer, installing the OS onto the new drive, and completing the computer setup, the computer has run extremely well.While this cable is a little tedious to install, it can be done with a helpful YouTube video and a little patience alongside the right tools. This was my first time fixing this kind of issue, but I was able to get it to work the first time without issue. It is much less expensive doing it this way than going and having someone else order and repair the MacBook.This cable is so affordable and definitely remedied my friend's issue. Her computer is running with rejuvenated life and my friend has confidence that there is finally an actual solution to her computer's issues. This is a short-term review, as of yet, but if anything changes, I will update the review. If there is no update, then the cable is continuing to work extremely well. I highly recommend this product to anyone needing to complete this kind of repair on their MacBook Pro. 5Read this review! I have already bought this cable 4 times, but I finally figured out what the problem was. The wire connecting HDD or SSD doesn't include any adhesive, so it is free to grind against the metal inside the laptop. This results in wear of the cable after 4-5 months (depending on the usage).To prevent this, use electrical tape to coat the metal, and the underside of the cable. 5If you plan to upgrade / replace your HD or SSD, replace this cable first I have a mid-2012 13" MacBook Pro, and this is the second time I've had to replace my SATA hard drive cable. While this particular model of MBP is very reliable overall, it suffers from a well-known defect in that the bottom case pushes against the cable and eventually causes it to fail. As others have recommended, replace this cable if you're going to upgrade or replace your internal drive. Also, if you think your HD or SSD may be failing, replace this cable first.The first time I had to replace the cable was when I upgraded from a 500 MB HD to a 1 TB HD, and the second time was when I upgraded to a 2 TB SSD. In both cases, I could not format or erase the new drive until I replaced the cable. Here's what to watch for:(1) You cannot erase or re-format your new HD or SSD when it is installed inside your MBP, but you can erase / reformat the drive when it is placed in an external USB enclosure.(2) A fresh install of MacOS fails with the new HD / SSD when the drive is installed internally, but not when the drive is installed in a USB enclosure.(3) You observe long boot-up times, intermittent spinning beach balls when doing simple things such as opening Safari, Microsoft Office, etc., or occasional crashes for no good reason.(4) Sleep becomes unreliable. The laptop doesn't go to sleep when you close the lid, or doesn't wake up when the lid is opened (because the sleep sensor is connected by the SATA cable).One last item to mention: the new App Translocation security feature on MacOS Sierra caused both Carbon Copy Cloner and Time Machine restore to fail when I tried to upgrade to my new Samsung 850 EVO 2 TB SSD. Sierra behaved as if the software had been transferred to a "new" computer, and prevented numerous background programs from running or starting up correctly. My ultimate solution was the following:(1) Create a bootable USB installer for MacOS Sierra using the free Disk Creator utility from MacDaddy with an 8 GB USB flash drive.(2) Remove your old HD or SSD from your laptop and place it in an external USB enclosure (very cheap, many enclosures available from Amazon), after performing a Time Machine backup.(3) Install the new SATA cable and new HD / SSD in your MBP, insert the USB installer flash drive, and install a fresh copy of MacOS.(4) When the installer asks if you want to transfer data from another source, attach the USB enclosure containing your old HD / SSD. Once it mounts, you can tell the installer to select the old drive and transfer your applications and user data. 5Low quality. Only lasted 1 month. Had to buy another one. The only reason it gets 2 stars is because of the price. 10$ isnt that bad. However, i originally purchased this cable back in September, in hopes of fixing the folder with a question mark icon that would pop up when i tried booting my mac. It did fix it, but only for a month. It started failing again, this time the icon was a prohibitory sign (circle with a dash through it) and wouldn't even recognize my ssd as being plugged in. I removed the ssd and plugged it in via USB, and everything worked perfectly. Ordered a second cable, came in today, just installed it, and everythings working fine again. So, the cable solved my issue, but only for a very short period of time (1 month). I'm hoping this one lasts longer. 2LIFE SAVING CABLE!!!!!! (but poorly packaged.....) THIS CABLE SAVED MY LIFE. Here's the whole story in case you're in a similar situation: I have a 13-inch Macbook Pro (early 2011), and I replaced the stock hard drive with a SSD about 4 months ago. Last week the computer suddenly shut off and would not reboot, but just showed a terrifying blinking folder with a question mark on it when I tried to restart it. I initially thought that my hard drive had failed and that I had lost everything, however I soon realized that it was a connection problem when the disk utility not only didn't recognize the SSD drive in the internet recovery mode, but it also wouldn't recognize the stock hard drive I reinstalled after being told by an Apple technician that I was basically screwed and had no chance of recovering my data. I then tried plugging my SSD into an external hard drive cable the connects via USB, and THANK GOD, everything was still there and the computer ran just fine as long as the USB connection stayed in. Apparently, Macbook Pro's manufactured around the time that mine was have had a lot of problems with the hard drive cable lasting longer than a few years at most, so many other people experienced this same situation and suggested either installing a data-doubler and connecting your hard drive that way, but at the expense of your optical drive, or to replace this hard drive cable itself, which was also the cheaper solution... so I went with the latter (step-by-step guides for the installation of both can be found on ifixit.com)!! I did some research and this specific cable had the best reviews. It was VERY easy to install, only taking about 20 minutes, and so far it has worked perfectly and my computer has run brilliantly since I installed it. The only reason I don't give this 5 stars is because the package of the cable during shipment was terrible. It was loose inside only a thin plastic ziplock bag, which offered it minimal protection. As a result, the cable was distorted and significantly bent in the packaging (see picture of cable in the status it arrived in below) , Fortunately, it seems to be working fine so far, regardless, though I was concerned it would be damaged. Other reviews commented on the poor packaging of the cable and some noted resulting damage to the cable that rendered it useless. The cable should be better protected during shipment, with it at least being delivered within a hard envelope if not in its own box. I had ordered another, larger item at the same time, so they were both inside the same box, but I'm not sure if the cable would have even been in a box or just a small, flimsy envelope or something otherwise... Regardless of the packaging, I cannot complain about this product, because like I said before, it was easy to install and works like a charm, literally saving me from the nightmare of thinking my hard drive had crashed or the $900+ repair that the Apple dude told me I would have to get (seriously...). Definitely recommend. 4Buy this! dont go to the apple store If you have a flashing folder with a question mark when you boot a 2012ish macbook pro then this is the cable you need. Only takes about 30 minutes to fix. I would recommend upgrading your hard drive to an SSD and upgrading RAM while you're at it, its very easy and will make your computer run faster than it did new.I don't know if I just have terrible luck or if I got a bad apple or what but I've had this cable failure has happen to me the week before finals every year since I started college and I am now a senior. The time that I need it the most and then all I get is a blinking folder ? The first two years the macbook pro was under warranty and I got it fixed at the apple store (after about 5-7 business days AKA after my finals). After the warranty ran out and it happened again during my junior year right before finals and I looked on youtube and found this cable and it worked perfectly. Now it happened a few weeks ago the week before finals and I instantly ordered this cable and got it fixed quick. 5
