Must-have for everyone who has SATA drives – SATA Cable (0.4-Meter) Reviews

posted by FireMotion on 11/26/2007 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Clips help the connector stay in place - Compatible with all SATA drives
Cons:
- None
Other:
Bottomline:
The SATA cable that was included with my mainboard (similar to http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.5170) disconnected too easily from the mainboard connectors and/or the hard drive connectors. This resulted in flaky hard drive performance or just plain disconnections.

The connectors on this cable click properly into the hard drive's connector, and fixing it in that position. Or if you have an older hard drive or main board (my main board is somewhat older), it won't click, but it stays better fixed in its position anyway than the original cable.
