    I need a replacement HDD cable and bracket for my 2012 MBP.

    It should be new and good quality.

    Can someone recommend a reputable merchant to buy from? (I a NOT interested in I-Fix-It, NewEgg, or Amazon because I have had horrible customer service experiences them!)

    For example, would any of these be any good?

    Thanks.

    All of the ones you've listed would have been my only suggestions. Have you talked to Apple about this? I have heard rumours of an unofficial extended warranty for that part from the 2012 13".

    Nah, dealing with warranties is too much hassle.

    What about the link I provided in my OP?

    Is a cable a cable or is it crucial where I get it from?

    (I just want to keep my old MBP as a backup, so I don't need gold-plated parts.)

    I don't think those parts will be an issue provided you're searching the correct product number, but I guess treat it as money you're willing to lose.

    I ordered from Mac Parts Depot without any hassle.
