SAS Breakout Cable

I am currently running 4 ST8000NM0055 currently have everything running in my r420 but am moving everything to a desktop NAS since I am downsizing my homelab. I am wondering for those out there that have done this what breakout cables have you ran for you LSI HBA's. I keep seeing a lot of mixed reviews on almost all the breakout cables I been looking at. Is it worth it going from SAS to SATA adapter than using SAS breakout and sata power or SAS 36pin SFF-8087 to (4) 29pin SFF-8482. Just looking for best options that have worked for others running unraid.

For SATA drives I would go with SAS to SATA, just make sure it's forward breakout, reverse breakout won't work for this.
