mini-SAS to SATA connectors are they all the same?

I bought a couple of “Mini 32 Pin SAS controller to for SATA Serial ATA cables” off ebay – they cost sod-all (£7 for the two including postage from Hong Kong) but have been the source of some consternation.

They’ve caused me no end of trouble…I tested the PERC 6iR card that I bought on ebay when it arrived and decided it was a dud – after reassurance from the seller I tested it again and it did work. What the hell was going on??????? It turns out that although the two cable sets look identical one works with my setup and the other one doesn’t.

This raised the question in my mind (in the smug style of a Sex in the City episode)… “mini-SAS to SATA connectors are they all the same?”. Alternatively mind I could have just been sold a dud (but since the cost of the item is less than it would cost me to send it back to on Hong Kong – we’ll never know will we :-() ).
