It is working in central NJ as well (Cablevision).
I am using a 200GB WD SATA drive, the Comax/Cruz cable, and a 3.5" Kingwin SS-350S-BLK
SATA case. My storage went from 93% full to 42% full.
I had some problems getting the Comax cable to fit in the SATA connector on the case. I had to trim down some of the plastic on the connector and file the metal opening on the case.
The case is OK, but it is louder than I would have liked. It would get quieter if I disconnected the fan, but I don't know if the drive would stay cool enough. The case itself is aluminum so it might be able to dissipate enough heat.
If I hadn't already bought the case, I probably would have gone with the Newegg SATA version that can use a regular (cheaper) IDE drive.
