18inch SATA 6Gbps Cable w/Locking Latch - Black

Each major revision of the Serial ATA interface specification has doubled the maximum data transfer rate. The latest SATA Revision 3.0 allows for data transfer speeds of up to 6 Gbps.

While the cables for all three revisions appear to be similar and will physically fit into the connectors on all SATA drives and controllers, the higher data transfer rate of SATA 6 Gbps requires higher quality materials and closer tolerances than the previous two revisions required.

Monoprice SATA 6 Gbps cables are certified to provide maximum speeds from your SATA system, up to 6 Gbps when used with equivalent devices and controllers.

Each end of this internal cable features a straight connector with an attached locking latch, to ensure that your connections do not come loose due to movement or vibration.

Note that SATA 6 Gbps cables are backwards compatible and can be used with SATA 3 Gbps and SATA 1.5 Gbps devices. However, the data transfer of the SATA subsystem will be limited to that of the slowest device. So, for example, if a SATA 6 Gbps cable is connected to a SATA 3 Gbps drive and a SATA 1.5 Gbps controller, the drive will be limited to a transfer rate of 1.5 Gbps.

Great Price! Solid product

Pros: Great quality, Solid connections.

Cons: None.

Given what I have to pay for a SATA cable at my local Fry's store, this is a steal. These cables are solid, and I've had no problems with them at all. I've ordered dozens of these from Monoprice, and none of them has had a problem.

Locking latch to prevent loose connection
Good length for any mid-size tower

Cons: Cable is a little stiff for twisting in right position, but doubt this will affect functionality

Pros: - price
- solid connections
- comes in different colours

Cons: - no markings on cable indicating speed rating / sata version

Good cables with a very reasonable price.
I like the solid connections with the devices. I bought extras for future use, but wished that they were marked so that I know what their ratings are when I go to use these extras in the future.

Very Inexpensive

Pros: Locking, nicely made, work great.

Cons: No printing on the cables stating 6 Gpbs.

I thought that these cables would have identification on them, they did not. I have run some tests against 6 Gpbs cables and they appear to be working correctly, no issues so far.
