    The idiot who invented the SATA connectors should be fired anyway. It's to most flimsy connector in the history of flimsy connectors.

    Along with the inventor of Molex connectors... I once spent at least 10 minutes fiddling with a pair, trying to align the pins

    I actually find that the SATA Power connectors are the 1st to break!

    The level of stupidity displayed in the SATA connector could only have been brought by a committee of morons, no one person could possibly perform this badly and still feed them self without tubes.

    Always thought SATA was flimsy but I've never had problems with disconnects (of course I don't have to deal with minor things like a near-miss from an artillery strike).

    What is the point of this when msata exists? Surely a card that slots into the motherboard and gets bolted down is even more secure, and its already an established standard consumer part.

    It's a well known fact that the collective common sense of a committee can be approximated by two simple equations:

    Sum of the individual IQs divided buy the square of the number of individuals
    and
    Sum of the individual IQs divided buy the product of their current salaries and their potential financial gains

    I think it's one of those things where you only get the joke if you've had personal experience of it. For that reason, I don't get it. :hehe:
