Compatible with your MP, no drivers necessary, street price ≈ 40-45 US$.

Got it in the mail, 50cm seems to be inaccurate. Measured it and it is 47cm actual cable length. Fit is quite tight.

We seem to be having some sort of issues here. Speed has just dropped to 45mb/s in BlackMagic. Looks like I'm gonna have to get the eSata Bracket adapter from OWC. On sale for $17.99. In the description it says length is 40cm, this $2 ebay rip off is 50cm and is quite tight.

Edit: it does appear very finicky. Reseated the cables and now its back to normal 110/115 speeds.
