All of those prices are certifiably CRAZY! Did you look at the prices they have for other parts? Guaranteed, the cable is priced for blatant robbery. I am waiting until a reasonable retailer wants to do business instead of rip me off.

They are crazy high. I could see someone like OWC offering a more reasonably priced cable and/or kit. That's probably the best thing that could happen at this point.

Here is another place where they list it for $32.30; unfortunately, they also state that they are out of stock.

Gosh, that video makes it look much simpler than the ifixit guide. WTF? Is ifixit just trying to sell more tools? It seems like you are putting your system at greater risk by taking all of that extra stuff apart. Hmm!
