Default Best brand for floppy/IDE Cables

Im looking for rounded floppy and IDE cables for my floppy drive and both my dvd burners. I've been looking around and the ones i found are Mad Dog., Vantec. and some other. I don't want any LED or anything, just plaing rounded (copper. silver, green) doesn't matter.

What brands are good, and what should i avoid

thanks

I'm using the Vantec Copper ones and they work wonderfully. If you feel like being cheap, you can just use a regular IDE cable and get an Exacto knife, then cut inbetween the individual wires so that they all are apart. Then you get eletrical or duct tape, bunch the wires together then tape them together.
